I wonder how much Don Geiss "dying" has to do with Rip Torn being a certified crazy person who might be going to jail (rather than just a run-of-the-mill plot twist)?

Having Liz end her phone call where she was pretending to be the Jamaican receptionist with bobsled, like she was just randomly throwing out words, and then later on having the receptionist at the dentist's office actually end her conservation with it was awesome

Kenneth: "You're going Irish..."

Michael Sheen, Liz Lemon's ringtone, Brian Williams ("Hey CNBC, Nightly News rules!! )

I'm pretty sure that's exactly why they killed him off. Loved this episode, Elizabeth Banks is pretty hilarious, and I watch a lot of CNBC.

I thought this was an ok episode. The Kenneth Donkey thing was pretty stupid.
Good seeing Michael Sheen though.

All it takes is 30 Rock to be off the air for a few weeks to appreciate how hilarious it is.

"Tracy's Claps-giving Yay Ha-rade!" really got me, as did the followup line about a Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade joke in March.

I thought this episode was fair - there were some ok moments, but overall lackluster.

What was his line? Something like "If you need to cry, I'll get you some weakness tissues."

Sometimes Kenneth is just too over-the-top, and with the donkey thing this was one of those times.

I loved the way they worked in Comcast's buyout of NBC/Universal even throwing in Liz looking at the camera while praising "Cabletown."

Same, although nice to see the show back and Elizabeth Banks too.

Yeah, the Michael Sheen bit didn't really work as there wasn't much material. I did like the fake Jamaican/Irish accent phone call and how the nurse ended her sentence with "bobsled."

Loved Tracy's line about "We need to start over 'cause I farted"
