Goodbye, My Friend was another hilarious episode of "30 Rock"
17 April 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

In this episode, Jack bonds with Frank as they and the other writers watch Harry and the Hendersons when they find out their fathers abandoned them as children, Liz bonds with a pregnant donut shop registrar hoping to adopt her baby when it's born, Kenneth gives Tracy his first birthday party and makes Jenna share it with her actual one, and besides Frank, Pete and even the long absent Josh have roles! I'll stop there and say this was another hilarious episode of "30 Rock" that mixes the plots of both Juno and that other movie I mentioned to wonderful effect especially when the star of that latter film, John Lithgow, makes a cameo here. Also good in her brief role was Patti LuPone as Frank's mother. And seeing Tracy Morgan and Jane Krakowski in their wacky situations was pure gold! So on that note, I highly recommend this "Goodbye, My Friend" episode of "30 Rock".
