Quotes

Jack Donaghy: Unfortunately, legal just informed me that the name we settled on for our bite size microwave, the 'BiteNuker', is highly offensive to those who speak either French or Dutch. A Franco-Dutchman would pronounce it 'Bedneuker'.
Sue: [speaking with an accent that sounds more Scandinavian than French or Dutch] Hey! That's awful!
Jack Donaghy: I'm sorry, Miss LaRouge Van der Hoot.

The Funcooker is another hilariously great episode of "30 Rock"
20 April 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

In this episode, both Liz and Jack have a bad day. Liz when she has to go to jury duty leaving no one in charge of her show, Jack when he has trouble thinking of a non-offensive name (in any language) for a little microwave product he's trying to sell. Oh, and Jenna and Tracy incur the wrath of a St. Patrick's Day organizer when Jenna falls asleep-because of her taking on both her show and a movie-and Tracy calls her an obscene name during the parade's festivities as the event is airing which now has him taking a huge fine from the FCC as well. Oh, and wait till you find out what the episode's title refers to...The title part is definitely the funniest part of this episode. And welcome back Chris Parnell as Dr. Spaceman who gives Jenna a solution that has her acting more weird than ever! And after watching the network version, I went to Hulu to find out what dirty words Liz and Tracy said that had to be bleeped on NBC. Unfortunately, Hulu had them bleeped as well. As Liz would say, Blurg! Oh well, at least Liz thinks her worst day became her best when she found out the little microwave works in the shower...
