Countdown to 30 Rock
I love 30 Rock - the writing is so witty and smart. So all this week, to gear up for its return on Thursday, I'll post my favorite quotes.
Tracy Jordan (played by Tracy Morgan) is the funniest one on the show - hands down. He was robbed at the Emmys last month. The character has incredible depth and wit, but at the same time, he's so dumb! He uses a screwdriver to fix everything (including items on Richard Nixon's Wikipedia page).
Here is a collection of my favorite Tracy quotes:
Tracy: [on birthdays] I don't need it. I buy myself all the presents I need. And because of my drinking, I'm often surprised.
- Tracy: So, how you doing over there, Theo Huxtable.
- Toofer: I'm doing good.
- Tracy: Nah-uh. Superman does good; you're doing well. You need to study your grammar, son.
- [Tracy leaves the room.]
- Frank: [to Toofer] Wow, that was embarrassing for you.
Tracy: If you get rich off this stuff, just take care of my family. I don't want my kids to have to go to college.
Tracy: I believe that the moon does not exist. I believe that vampires are the world's greatest golfers but their curse is they never get a chance to prove it. I believe that there are 31 letters in the white alphabet. Wait...what was the question?
Tracy: I'm whipped! Angie got me up at 7:30 today. Did you know that in the morning, they have food, TV, almost everything. It's pretty good.
Tracy: I watched Boston Legal 9 times before I realized it wasn't a new Star Trek.
Tracy: Liz Lemon, I may hug people too hard and get lost at malls, but I'm not an idiot.
Tracy: What is this, Horseville? Because I'm surrounded by naysayers.
Tracy: If you have enough money you can do whatever you want! Now I can appear on Martha Stewart Live. Oh, and it's going to be raunchy!
I hope you live every week like it's shark week - and never over work your thought-cicles!
