Quotes

Tracy Jordan: Did you see this? It's horrible! They're printing libel about me again. Libel, Liz Lemon!
Liz Lemon: Oh..."Normal"! How... dare they?
Tracy Jordan: That's what I'm saying! That's character assassination! That's not normal! It only looks like I'm walking out of a Starbucks, when actually I'm doing the robot going backwards INTO a Starbucks! And I don't even know whose dog that is! Yes, I steal dogs.
Liz Lemon: What is the problem?
Tracy Jordan: I can't be normal. If I'm normal, I'm boring. If I'm boring, I'm not a movie star. If I'm not a movie...

Pretty Funny Episode!
7 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The sixth episode in the first season of 30 Rock is a pretty good episode, despite not being as good as the previous three episodes. This episode is still rather entertaining and funny. There are some good subplots within the main story. But it seems that something is off with his episode. I don't think the writing is as good as it was previously or maybe because the addition of Dennis seems pretty useless.

In this episode, "Jack Meets Dennis," Liz goes out with her annoying ex-boyfriend, Dennis. Jack happens to meet Dennis at a restaurant and is not impressed by him. Meanwhile, Tracy is not happy that the media is portraying him as an ordinary person. Also, Jenna feels like she is getting too old for her job.

Overall, this is a solid episode in a good first season. While not the best, it still manages to be funny and sharp. My favorite scenes are one involving Tracy and a certain tattoo. I rate this episode 8/10.
