30 Rock: Wisdom and Witticisms

CLICHES

HowardDean
Jack: God, “push the envelope.” You know who uses that phrase? People who don’t have the guts or the brains to work inside the system: letter writers, radicals, Howard Dean.

DRAG

BugsBunny
Frank: What? Everybody loves a dude in dress. I mean, those are the best Bugs Bunny.

AGING

Jack: Lemon, rich 50 is middle-class 38. Okay?

POLITICS

Vote
Jenna: Well, of course Tracy we’re actors if we didn’t exist how would people know who to vote for?

MANNERS

Farmer
Liz: Why are you wearing a tux?
Jack: It’s after a six. What am I a farmer?

LOVE

Queer
Colleen Donaghy: Tell him his mother’s here. And she loves him. But not in a queer way.

MOVIES

Rockharmonica
Jack: I can’t believe you’re out of the game. It’s like Picasso not painting or Bruce Willis not combining action and rock harmonica.

MUSIC

Doors
Liz: Being terrible has never prevented success in music business. Look at Biz Markie or The Doors.

GAELIC

Sheeprapists
Jack: This ought to prove my mother wrong. Saying Donaghy is Gaelic for failure. What the hell does she know, she’s a Murphy? Bunch
of mud farmers and sheep rapists.

MARRIAGE

Vajayjay
Tracy: But what did I tell you was the secret to having a good marriage and keeping it together, Kenneth?
