Love is in the air in NYC as three weddings are about to take place.

30 Rock Episode Recap: "The Moms" Season 4, Episode 20

America, big changes are happening. I'm back living in Orange County, Calif., after my year at NYU, Aaron Kelly was finally voted off Idol, and 30 Rock wasn't actually that funny this week. As I sat down with 10 of my closet hometown friends to watch Liz and the gang, I expected to be laughing all the way home. Instead, I was amused, a bit confused, and left wanting more. In any event, I shall recap, and you, my commenting audience, can decide whether I'm right, or whether the OC air is getting to my head.

The episode begins with Liz bringing Jack a budget for approval, and reminding him that Mother's Day is just around the corner. Jack freaks out, and as he is running out to make Jonathan order flowers, his mother, Colleen, is waiting at his office door. First and foremost, Elaine Stritch (as Colleen) is the best 30 Rock guest of all time. She manages to make me laugh harder than any actress on television.

30 Rock Episode Recap: "Argus" Season 4, Episode 19

After getting a double dose of 30 Rock last week, one episode seems like a let down. However, Fey and the gang live up to the challenge, and produce a hilarious, quite snotty episode that holds up to any comedy around. Bring on the funny, gang.

The episode opens as Liz is picking out her "Vietnamese size two" dress for Cerie's wedding. Jack darts into Liz's office in order to notify her that he has been named in Don Giess' will, and he is ecstatic. All the boss wants is a piece of his hero's life, even "sleddy," Giess' prized boyhood sled.

30 Rock Episode Recap: "Khonani" Season 4, Episode 18

Why are you so good at parody, 30 Rock? I thought you topped yourself back with the "Glenngary Glenn Ross" episode, but this one takes the cake. Tina Fey and the gang decide it is the perfect time to spoof the now infamous late night war scandal, and they do it using garbage men (fitting enough).

The episode opens with Liz distraught over the fact that she is not invited to "Thursday Night Thunder," a TGS Thursday tradition that she was never informed about. She voices her concerns to Tracy, and he explains how his wife Angie's pregnancy complications were the reason that he could not attend. Tracy asks Liz to "take care of Angie like a husband" because he is not ready for the responsibility, she declines, and, of course, Kenneth is game. He runs to the rescue.

30 Rock Episode Recap: "Lee Marvin vs. Derek Jeter" Season 4, Episode 17

Two new episodes of "30 Rock?" Is it Christmas morning? Is it time to light the Menorah? No, it is just NBC trying to flush out the remaining shows, but I don't care. Two is always better than one.

The episode opens with Jack having a dirty phone conversation with Avery, and she even compares herself to a "slutty Grace Kelley." Liz, of course, ruins the moment by bringing him a talking greeting card in which she attempts to sing a song, instead having incoherent rambling thoughts. Just as Jack is convincing Liz to find a no-strings attached love interest, Nancy walks in, obviously complicating Jack's life.

30 Rock Episode Recap: "Don Geiss, America, and Hope" Season 4, Episode 15

I'm not quite sure where Tina Fey came from, but oh my god, she is brilliant. I can officially say that almost no episode of 30 Rock falls flat for me, and this one certainly didn't. I frequently find myself in tears, uncontrollable laughing fits, and the often spit-take or two. Her writing is sent from the gods, and the acting within this episode in particular deserves multiple Oscars (yes, not even Emmys are enough). Now that many of you think I'm a crazy, obsessed, neurotic fan, we can go on with the recap.

You know it's 9:30 Thursday night on NBC, when a Mad Man, Zack's Porno-Accomplice, a Hair-Metal rocker from the Garden State, and two SNL veterans all share the screen.

Good evening, America. My name is Adam Mersel, and it is officially my second week recapping the world that is 30 Rock. If you know what I'm referring to in the above paragraph, congratulations: You must be as big a junkie as I am (which, by the way, is borderline unhealthy — and totally worth it). If you're dazed and confused, don't fret. I will explain below for all of you rookies.
