30 rock recapping: the tuxedo begins

Previously on 30 Rock: Hey Baby, What’s Wrong?

Jack getting mugged

Liz and Jack are late for work. Liz because people no longer follow the rules for getting on and off the subway and Jack because he had to get out of his cab and walk. Liz argues that it’s because New York is overrated. Jack thinks its a testament to man’s triumph. While Liz is telling him about the Real Housewives of New York recap, Jack is mugged.

Liz thinks this proves her argument about New York, Jack thinks this is the beginning of a class war. Jack tries to enlist the help of his P.I. but quickly realizes that his P.I. is one of them. So Jack must take matters into his own hands. Liz develops her own form of dealing with her city woes. She acts or has become the crazy lady on the subway.

Paul and Jenna

Paul has returned from his cruise and instead of ravishing each other, as per usual, they fell asleep after a sexless night. So unlike them, that they had to make it into a fetish called normaling. They act out their new fetish by shopping at Bed Bath and Beyond. When their co-workers insist that their just being a couple, they panic but decide they’ll put their relationship to the test.

Liz gone crazy

Jack is afraid to leave his office and Liz is riding the crazy train full speed ahead. In a scene reminiscent of the Dark Knight, Liz and Jack as the Joker and Batman circle each other and justify their choices. Then as Liz is going to the movies to clear out the theater she learns she’s forgotten her wallet. As Jack is trying to overcome his fear, Liz asks him for $20. Since she’s dressed as a crazy lady, Jack obviously freaks out and throws her into a pile of trash. Jack has conquered his fear and Liz has realized that acting like a crazy person isn’t productive.

Best/Funniest Moments

  • Paul and Jenna shopping in Bed Bath and Beyond
  • Jack and Liz on the rooftop

Quotes

Stranger: “Say, where does a young prostitute get started in this town?”

up all night recapping: working late and working it

Chris is trying to keep the romance in his relationship. He wants to find a way to get Reagan to dress sexier when she is at home instead of just wearing her maternity jeans with the droopy front where the baby use to be. But you can’t outwardly say that to Reagan without being punished in some way.

Chris gets some advice from his new friend Reed (Will Forte) about how to get his wife “in the mood”. After a thorough inspection, Reed tells Chris that he needs to wear tighter clothing and butt cheeks…well…squeeze his butt cheeks more. Needless to say, that plan didn’t work. He ended up saying all the things he wasn’t supposed to say and angered Regan. Even though he immediately reneged on his stance Reagan has the best of him the next morning when she decided to mockingly dress “fancy” all day.

Ava is experiencing her own relationship drama…kinda. Her ex-boyfriend, former boy band badass – if that’s possible, Benjamin “B-Ro” Roth (Jorma Toccone) is getting married. Ava blames Reagan for breaking them up even Reagan insists they weren’t good for each other with the assistance of some vintage blow-ups they had in public during their brief relationship. There may or may not have been a Kelly Bundy sighting…but that’s your call.

Reagan arranges a meeting with “B-Ro” to show Ava that he hasn’t changed and is still the same jerk she got out of a relationship with but she is wrong. He seems to have changed his ways. He says he doesn’t drink or do drugs anymore and is a founder of some schools in Africa. But he suggests that since Ava is doing so well now financially she should stop be so “tight” with the money. Then the riot starts just like the good ol’ days. Ava thanks Reagan for supporting her by buying her some lingerie.

Kelly Bundy Reagan, "B-Ro", Ava circa 1992

Back at home Chris apologizes to Reagan through a cute/cheesy photoshopped slideshow. He and Reagan do some weird dancing followed by a nice PG kiss so I guess that equals desire and romance in the married realm. Mission Accomplished!
