30 Rock -- "Anna Howard Shaw Day" -- 02/11/10

30 Rock

Synopsis:

Spoiler:
It's the highs and woes of Valentine's Day: Jack's heart thumps for a fetching CNBC host (Elizabeth Banks); Liz schedules a root canal to elude loneliness; and Jenna is horrified when her stalker grows disinterested in her. Jon Bon Jovi appears as himself.

I thought it looked Sanzy in that guy's face.

Re: 30 Rock -- "Anna Howard Shaw Day" -- 02/11/10

She is woman, and she is real.

Many choose to doubt the existence of my beautiful lady friend, Karen Mackenzie-L'Amour-Gretzky. These cynics and haters would have you believe that the entire life of a beautiful Torontonian princess is nothing but a lie. Well, quite frankly, I am outraged, sirs, and these injustices will not stand.

First of all, she's got three last names. Anybody who knows me knows that I'm a lazy writer; why would I go through the trouble of coming up with three separate perfectly authentic Canadian surnames for her? I simply wouldn't. I couldn't. And I didn't, because those are her three last names, jerks.
Certain TGS writers like to harp on the fact that I sometimes don't speak to her for weeks. While this is true, it's only because she's on assignment in Canada and neither of us have land lines or international cell phones.

And no, we've never been in the same room. I met Ms. Mackenzie-L'Amour-Gretzky on CompuServe, and as a mother of three growing tots, she hasn't really had a schedule that allows for visits to New York. I can't visit her because she only has a single bed, and her twins' cribs are in the room with her. Also, she's concerned about me getting bedbugs and doesn't want me staying in mite-friendly Canadian hotels. I'm thinking of getting some money together and renting a place up in Ottawa, but I don't know, the upkeep on that sort of thing must be a bummer.

But ultimately, you need look no further than in my heart to discover that Karen is real. But in order to hush all the doubters, I will update this space with evidence as it piles up. Get ready to eat your words, Frank, Toofer, Liz, and Writers Who Never Talk. You can't handle the truth.

Liz's hallucinations were golden.

Bon Jovi was awesome.

And I too thought "That looks like a skinny version of Horatio Sanz"...man, good for him!

Also, Elizabeth Banks was smokin' and I loved "The Hot Box...for a few reasons.

I loved Liz walking into her apartment while under anesthesia...

"What hotel is this?"

The treadmill zipper gag, the stalker montage, Bon Jovi doing the Nightly News, and the end bumper.

All equal 30 minutes of awesome awesomeness.

Liz thinking the tree was Bon Jovi and proceeding to give it tongue.

Cool to see all three of Liz's past guys, especially the last part.

One of the best this of this season.

I like how in the bumper "dennis" the nurse had the beeper in the same place as he did on his denim jacket!

What was the ending bumper? I either don't remember it, or my DVR cut off.

For me, their funniest episode this season. So many great lines.

Another scene with Liz's three exes...but they were all acting like the nurses and talking with accents. My DVR cut it off too but record the next show. I've got to remember to pad out 30 Rock...

Good God, if you guys hadn't mentioned it I never would have realized it was him. I knew he looked familiar, but I never would have figured out it was him. Look at him in this interview:

<object width="560" height="340"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/XRgPuXeKflU&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/XRgPuXeKflU&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="560" height="340"></embed></object>

I had no clue he lost weight, just amazing. He has been like this for a year or so it looks like.

Anyway, my favorite part of this episode is when it cut from Liz talking to her past boyfriends to her saying it all to the nurses, and their reaction to it.

I don't think so ... the character didn't crack up in laughter in the middle of his scene, so it can't possibly be Sanz.

Yay for Horatio! I think not being on SNL and filling that "one fat cast member" niche that the show seems to have was good for him. The pressure was off to stay heavy.

Loved Bon Jovi's cameo! Woot!
