Many know Tina Fey from her work on Saturday Night Live, or for her iconic movie Mean Girls, and others may know her as Liz Lemon on her TV show, 30 Rock. Though I have seen every episode more than once, their array of quirky characters continue to bring laughter to my house. To the annoyance of my family and friends I am often quoting 30 Rock, saying “this reminds me of that one 30 Rock scene” before launching into a descriptive explanation of the scene, or sending 3o Rock gifs in reply to many texts. This is all true, though it has become more toned down lately, especially around those who don’t watch 30 Rock.
Not only is there an amazing array of constant characters, but there are a number of equally funny and amazing guest stars that add to the many funny moments. Originally I was planning on making this a “top 10” style article, but found that I couldn’t narrow it down to just 10 of my favorite moments. So instead, I will share with you a few things 30 Rock has taught me.
1. When in doubt, dance it out like Liz Lemon. Also one minute dance parties are always a nice rejuvenating break.
2. Only Jack can pull this off, or rather not pull this off?
3. Don’t trust Kenneth.
4. Sometimes things aren’t how you remember them… (For those who don’t understand refer to the episode including Liz Lemon’s high school reunion.)
5. Valentine’s day is actually Anna Howard Shaw day
I hope this has been a reminder of the great moments that 3o Rock has brought to you to those of you who have watched it, or has made those of you who have not seen it curious to do so.
What are some things that make you laugh?
