OK, so maybe that wasn't Tracy's exact line, but it sure conveys the overall sentiment (and compelling mental picture). For the purists out there, though, it went something like this:
"I like this corn bread so much, I want to take it behind a middle school and get it pregnant."
Like I said, I summed it up pretty good.
This week's episode of NBC's
30 Rock was an upswing from the last (which had the unenviable task of trumping Prince Gerhardt). I think the show really clicks when Jack is trying (with varying degrees of success) to school Liz on the ways of NBC-GE-Universal management, this time bringing her in on Josh's contract renegotiation only to ultimately decide she wasn't ready for "the big chair." Jack drives a tough bargain, though, negotiating Josh's agent down from "time off for every Jewish holiday, no matter how ridiculous" to "the one where they go in the tent." The agent was funny in his own right, what with the abbreviating of every word (e.g., "Let's skip the foreplay, get right to the penetraysh," "Awes'"). At the end of the day, he was glad to get his money, to support his sex addiction and all.
It was also good to see Jenna back after a conspicuous absence last week, poking fun at the various (and there
are many) lad-mag "lists," and scoring a spot (and unfortunate photo shoot) as the "No. 4 Hottest Woman in Comedy." So true that they would have her pose with, like, a rubber chicken in her mouth. I question, though, the use of salad dressing to get the proper sheen on a gal's pins.
I'm a little late with this, so just a few last bullets:
" Liz pimping Obama to Jenna: "Remember you liked those pictures of him at the beach?" (And Jenna then realizing, "He's black and running for president? Good luck.")
" Jack eyeing Liz's laptop: "Do you ever get any e-mails other than from Match.com?"
" Josh faking sick but botching the ruse by lunching at the NBC commissary because, "I get a discount here." (To be fair, the network commissary prices
are tough to beat.)
Before I run off to
Today's Newsland, some "good news" for my fellow
30 Rockers: For what it's worth, I've screened the first few episodes of
Andy Barker, P.I., which
takes over this time slot in a few weeks, and it is pretty good. Not overtly outrageous the way
30 Rock can be, but very funny in its own special manner. And the casting from top to bottom is
terrific. I'm planning a detailed p/review in my
Trivial Matt'rs blog early next week.
