I am not to be truffled with sound bite

I’ve said many times before that 30 Rock is my favourite show. The Office comes in at a very close second (if not a tie). The US Office, that is. I can watch these back to back, over and over. So glad that Season 6 is out.

jack gets in the game

30rock

i watched 30 Rock episode season 2 ep 2: “Jack Gets in the game” again yesterday:

Liz: How come men can be heavy and be respected, like James Gandolfini or Fat Albert? It’s a double standard, and America needs to get over its body image madness.
Jack: Oh, come on. What are we, back in college, freshman year? Let’s go to the common room and talk about apartheid.


Devon: Here, why don’t you take some of my steak? I could never eat this much meat.
Jack: That’s not what I hear.


Dr. Leo Spaceman: Now Jenna, medically speaking, for your height your weight puts you in what we call the “disgusting range”.


Liz Lemon: You just can’t be a real woman in this country. God! It’s like those Dove commercials never happened!


Tracy Jordan: My home address is in the GPS under ‘Da Crib’ cos we live on Da Crib Avenue.


there’s also a blink and you’ll miss it scene showing the boxes for Liz’s unassembled home office furniture, with the swedish furniture company’s name on it: Blërg
