30 Rock — "The Collection" — 10/18/2007



Jack hires private investigator Len (Steve Buscemi) to keep GE from digging up dirt on him. Meanwhile, Tracy's wife Angie decides that she is going to stay with him at every moment to keep him out of trouble, and Tracy enlists Liz to cover for him. Also, Jenna is still enjoying the fame that her weight gain has brought her, but she is disappointed to learn that she is losing weight.

NBC Video Rewind

I thought this one was a bit below average but it still had some funny one-liners, especially "You smell like Enormé and brass polish!"

Jack's cousin IS the NBA fixer! I was hoping they would go there this season.

This was no more (and no less) than a solid episode. It was not a bad episode, but it definitely wasn't one of the best. The walk and talk was great, and so was Kenneth's line about having to get married now.

I find myself missing Liz's forays into love and her conversations with Donaghy. They need more of them.

That line was great because most of the strippers in the Tri State area are Russians.

THAT cracked me up! It had never occured to me before. I had to back up the tivo to make sure I heard it correctly.

I also like this exchange
"Liz, I like that idea. You're finally starting to think like a businessman!"
"BusinessWOMAN"
"I don't think that's a word."

Not one of the funniest eps, but it had it's moments. I liked the Liz/Tracy scenes, but didn't find the Buscemi scenes that funny.

Thinking back on it, the scene where Liz mimics what has happened and Tracy says, "I had to take my cobra to the vet" was hilarious.

I'm really glad this show hasn't hit the dreaded sophomore slump. I think I look forward to this show more than The Office these days!

The very end; after Jack gives Kenneth his Cookie jar collection & that dramatic music plays, then he starts talking angrily at the GE logo on the TV had me rolling.

Not the strongest episode thus far & the first two episodes were much stronger, but this was definitely a solid episode. The Jenna parts weren’t bad this episode but honestly they could take her off the show & I don’t think the show would lose quality much.

Beautiful, gorgeous, dead-inside Russians.

"Chase the chunk". Funny epsiode but I wish Buscemi had a bit more to do (although I loved the cigar bit).

This may have been the best episode ever. There were sooo many great lines, just one after another.



"and not the good kind of crazy, so now I think we have to get married"


"did you compliment her nails?"


"if I sign up a friend I get a free hat"
