30 Rock -- "When it Rains, It Pours" -- 09/30/10

Synopsis:

Spoiler:
Liz is stunned to discover she's now turning men's heads and uses her newfound confidence to win over a fastidious editor (Paul Giamatti). Meanwhile, Jack is determined to teach Avery's unborn son the ropes of life; Tracy gears up for his wife's delivery; and an enigmatic man takes on Kenneth's page duties. Elizabeth Banks, Brian Williams and Kelly O'Donnell guest star.


Finally saw last week's episode a few days ago. Hilarious debut. Surprised that CBS would let them use the logos/trademarks on this show.

I wouldn't be shocked if the show has some fans at CBS. The networks are competitive, but they do something cool for one another once in a blue moon.

Do not hire Sting for your reception. He'll insist on doing jazz versions of Police songs and it's just.....demoralizing.

IMO this episode was the best it's been since Season 3. So much awesome in the first 15 minutes alone.

At first I thought that Ben Bailey was just doing a guest shot, but then he turned on the Cash Cab lights.
And then Tracy got all the questions right, but couldn't get out of the cab.

I thought the same thing at first but then I realized that CBS doesn't care. They put out comedies half as funny as 30 Rock and get higher ratings.

Another great episode. Too many funny moments but I have to say that the Cash Cab stuff was the best.

Loved the Brian Williams cameo and Ben Bailey with the cash cab.

I will say, I typically don't like shows that do stunt casting with high profile people, but 30 Rock seems to do well with putting people into good characters.

Similar to last year, disliked the season premiere but last nite's was classic.

Cash Cab and Andrea Mitchell's fist bump with Williams were also great!

Dr. Spaceman to Tracy's wife: I've administered the epidural. Do you want one?

"...And my mood ring. I don't know how I feel about that"

"Your new vibe is a double edged sword, much like the one Mickey Rourke tried to kill me with"

I love Jack's videos to his son:

"At Harvard I was voted Most"
"The key to great hair: Dove Blood"
"And this is how you make love to a woman"

Honestly, 30 Rock is probably the best show on TV at writing throwaway lines. But they also have the cast that can pull them off. Just a great great episode.

I'm really glad I wasn't drinking anything during this episode or I would have had to squeegee my tv.

Thomas Jefferson invented the Lazy Susan. I know this because I am a descendant of both Thomas Jefferson AND Lazy Susan!

Liz's Julia Roberts laugh was funny...but kind of creepy.
Paul Giamatti was great as the fantasy hockey league civil war reenactment guy.
