Liz finally breaks up with Dennis, but he still hasn't moved out of her apartment. To celebrate the break-up, Jenna plans to take Liz out on a girl's night. Meanwhile, Liz suspects that Jack is dating Condoleezza Rice and Tracy is mad at Toofer, because he talked him out of doing a sketch involving drag. Liz makes Toofer work with Tracy on a sketch, but since Tracy cannot believe that another black man is so much different than he is, the work turns into a disaster. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


Given his love of New York based sports teams, (in the episode "Subway Hero Liz" insults every one of them to try and upset him) Dennis would have been crying tears of joy at the 1986 world series as the Mets defeated the Red Sox in a tense finish. See more »

Funny and More Funny!
14 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The eighth episode in 30 Rock is really funny thanks to nonstop gags. Despite being mostly political or racial, these jokes work because they are hard to resist and really funny to see everyone's reactions here. Liz, Tracy, and Jack are the three main characters and they just get into rather awkward, but funny situations especially in this episode.

This episode, "The Break-Up," has Liz finally breaking up with Dennis and Jenna taking her out to celebrate. Liz begins to suspect that Jack's new girlfriend may be none other than Condoleeza Rice. Finally, Tracy and Toofer collide over an issue involving the Girlie Show.

Overall, this is a funny episodes thanks to lots of funny interplay between each character. I love how they get into these weird but funny situations. 30 Rock is turning out to be a funny sitcom. I rate this episode 9/10.
