30 rock recapping: dance like nobody’s watching

NBC has a new show. It’s called “America’s Kidz Got Singing” (actual spelling). According to Jack it’s a cash cow. Jenna is the bitchy one, who sings the kids nothing but insults, which she enjoys a little too much, but being inappropriate is Jenna’s thing. Liz Lemon is acting awfully cheerful. And everyone notices it. Tracy is pretty upset about it because her cheerfulness means she will not react to Tracy acting out. So obviously he follows her in order to get to the bottom of her new found happiness. Kenneth believes the world is going to end tomorrow and Liz, after quoting from a tampon box, gives him the day off to do everything he’s always wanted to do.  For Kenneth, this involves all the chores he’s never been able to do at TGS, including scraping a Chiquita banana sticker off the ceiling.

Liz Dancing Like Nobodys Watching

Jack, after watching Jenna insult a girl named Liddy (his daughter’s name), asks her to try and be nicer. It doesn’t work so Jack tells her to go back to being mean. Tracy follow Liz and decides that she must be a crack whore. He reports this to Jack who doubts it and as they go over the facts, Jack figures out that Liz has joined the WNBA dance squad. He believes the exercise is whatmaking her so cheerful, but when he drops her off at the movie theater he sees her kissing another man. It seems Jack doesn’t know Liz as well as he thought, or was there a hint of jealousy in his eyes? Kenneth decked out in lime green spandex, a large white t-shirt that say RAPTURE, and light up sneakers (fantastic touch, really) is ready to welcome the apocalypse. He is disappointed. And though Toofer, Lutz, and Frank, dressed up as black Jesus, Satan, and Santa (because he’s a religious figure), try to scare Kenneth, Pete scolds them all and takes them to see the ocean, which Kenneth has never seen before.

Best/Funniest Moments

  • Liz Flashing Jack her Dickie.
  • Kenneth’s cheerfully ignorant disposition on the apocalypse.
  • Jenna asking Tracy what nice people wear.
  • Tracy not wearing pants.
  • Jack’s sit down meeting with Liddy before her next appointment to read a book with sleepy bear.


Jenna: “Emma that was pretty good. You were trying to get me to commit suicide, right?”

Jack: “Next week Jay-Z was going to do a duet with one of the spinning chairs from The Voice, and the chair just pulled out.”

Jenna: “How do nice people dress?”
Tracy: “Socks on their hands, no belt, roller skates.”

Jack: “This thing’s a real cash cow, unlike Cash Cow, the NBC spinoff of Cash Cab. You try riding a cow through midtown Manhattan, Lemon. The animal will panic.”

Liz: “You’re a 42 year old man.”
Tracy: “No I’m not. I took a real age test. It said I’m dead.”

Kristen is a confused young adult who sometimes thinks TV shows are actually her life Wouldn’t that be cool? Unless she was a victim on Dexter, or a deranged privileged teenager on gossip girl, or a wolf on teen wolf, or Liz Lemon! Never mind. It wouldn’t be cool. Kristen is a young adult.
