"Subway Hero" Season 2, Episode 12

Now wasn't that a proper 30 Rock ? I just rewatched it for recapping purposes, and it was filled not with just great laughs, but also some heart. Damn the roller coaster that is the crazy Dennis-and-Liz on-again/off-again thing! Poor Liz, she wants "easy" romance where she doesn't have to shave or bathe, yet took a while to realize that's as bad for her as the Sabor De Soledad (translation: "the flavor of loneliness") off-brand Cheetos she was stuffing her face with all episode. This week also had some really solid and entertaining B stories, with Jack wooing Tracy to be the (black) celebrity face of the Republican Party and Tim Conway's "Bucky Bright" regaling/utterly frightening Kenneth with stories from TV's good ol' days. I think that between Bucky, Dennis and Jack, most every race, religion and sexuality found something to be affronted by in this episode. OK, now I say "Bullets," you say, "Hero!": " The Committee to Re-invade Vietnam " "Food Network doesn't have a news show." " Dennis interrupting his own press conference with Mayor Bloomberg to shout, "Stern rules! Baba Booey!" What an idiot. " Jack explaining that Dennis' To Catch a Predator thing "was one big misunderstanding - like the Giuliani campaign." " "We're like Ross and Rachel, but just not gay." " "She told me her last boyfriend was Asian, and that crap doesn't start until college ." " Bucky being a big TV star in "the '40s, '50s and the fall of 1972." " Kenneth exclaiming, "Son of a married couple!" " Kenneth's voting strategy: "Choosing is a sin so I just write in the Lord's name" - and Jack then saying, "That's Republican. We count those." " Bucky's first "wrong turn," detailing the "inside monogrammed pocket for your opium pipe and switchblade." " "Me and it, we're teaming up to fight illiteracy!" " Dot Com expounding upon how "today's Republican party would be unrecognizable to Lincoln." Intermission. OK, some more: " "We used to call this the Jew room." " Bucky's interrupted description of what a "sandwich girl" was. " Liz making the newspaper... As Sally Field. " Bucky on the giant lesbian he met in the halls of NBC: "Who is Conan O'Brien and why is she so sad?" " Dead Tracy lamenting the many different kinds of buckets he didn't get to own. " "I can't help McCain. He's a Navy man, and I almost joined the Marines once." " "My cologne is distilled from the bilge water of Rupert Murdoch's yacht." " Jenna explaining that "Love is hiding who you are at all times" by "going downstairs to the Burger King to poop... and hiding alcohol in perfume bottles." " Dennis boasting, "A stripper offered to give me a squeezer last night. A white stripper." " Hero bird "Winston dialed 911 and said 'fire,' but only because he didn't know word for rape." " Dennis claiming that the firefighter exam is "totally biased against the Irish." And last but not least, Liz saying, "If reality TV has taught anything it's that you can't keep people with no shame down." When is the new season of "MILF Island," anyway? show less
