30 ROCK – The Best of “Subway Hero”

April 18, 2008 by  

For all you 30 ROCK fans, it’s time to share YOUR favorite moments of last night’s episode. GMMR’s own Jo has picked her favorite lines of the night and now we turn it over to you. (I can’t wait to get home and watch 30 ROCK!! This stuff looks great).

Here’s why I love 30 Rock in a nutshell: Tina Fey. She is the funniest woman on the planet. 30 Rock has that great bizarre humor that is random and clever, much like the dearly departed but possibly coming back as a movie Arrested Development.

Plot summary: Dennis, Liz’s former loser beeper king boyfriend, grabs fifteen minutes of fame when he saves someone in the subway. Jack tells Liz to book him on TGS. Blerg. Jack, with the help of Richard Nixon, convinces Tracy to help the GOP and Kenneth is stuck walking around with a former TV star. Great moments- Conan joke, Alec Baldwin’s Nixon impersonation, and Tracy’s Don’t Vote commercial.

My favorite lines of the night:

Liz: “Ah, well sorry, I’m not giving any money until there’s campaign finance reform. Also, I’m saving up money for a new humidifier. It’s the same model keeping Larry King alive.”

Kenneth: “Oh, no sir, I don’t vote Republican or Democrat. Choosing is a sin- so I just always write in the Lord’s name”

Jack: “That’s Republican- we count those”

Mr. Bright: “I just wandered around the building all night. I didn’t run into another single living soul. Except one gigantic lesbian. Who is Conan O’Brien and why is she so sad?”

Jack: “Dennis, what are your politics?”

Dennis: “Social conservative, fiscal liberal.” (Jo’s side note: Okay it’s not as funny on paper but the delivery is priceless.)

Liz: “Everything in my life is work. But not Dennis Duffy. I don’t have to shave, I don’t have to bathe, I don’t have to be clever or nice, you know. I can just be myself. Isn’t that what love really is?”

Jenna: “No. Love is hiding who you really are at all times, even when you’re sleeping. Love is wearing make up to bed and going downstairs to the Burger King to poop.”

Liz to Dennis: “You’re gonna be fine. If reality tv has taught us anything, it’s that you can’t keep people with no shame down.”

Jo has a boring job in a small town in Texas and spends her hours daydreaming about Dillon Panther football, Samuel T. Anders and becoming a real life version of Veronica Mars. Her random TV rants can be found at http://tvonthebrain.wordpress.com.

    The Conan line was one of my favorites, as was the write-in line and Jack’s response. Great episode! I also love that in Tracy’s dreamworld, Jack shows up as the main characters–Thomas Jefferson last season, Richard Nixon this season. Good stuff!!

    30 Rock is hilarious, and I’m not sure why it’s taken me this long to get into! I LOVE Tina Fey (I’m talking L-O-V-E love), and she definitely makes this show. But so do the other characters, especially Kenneth. Oh, Kenneth. His line about writing in the Lord’s name in the ballot box … PRICELESS!

    Also, Tina Fey snacking on the Mexican-version-of-Cheetos was also hilarious, as were all the moments you described above. Great review! 🙂

    I love, love, love Tina Fey too. I loved the reality TV line and the Conan line. I also loved Liz’ line “Food Network doesn’t have a news show.” Heehee

    The best part of last night’s episode wasn’t even a line; it was Tracy’s dance to “We Didn’t Start the Fire”.

    Hey Jules, I had forgotten that line about the Food Network! That had me laughing too – thanks for the reminder 🙂 Liz Lemon is awesome.
