Did You Know?


When Liz walks into Jack Donaghy's office, Jack's assistant Jonathan is unpacking bags from a (fictitious) store named Vattene. "Vattene" is Italian for "Get out" or "Get the hell outta here." Jenna later says it to the janitor Subhas. See more »


Cerie's claim that her mother was born in 1976 is highly unlikely to be right. In season one she mentioned that her mother was around 38, making her born in about 1968 and a 1976 birth would only make her around 11 or 12 when Cerie herself was born. See more »


Liz Lemon: Nope, do not put a hyphen in YouFace. There are definitely faces here, but they are not being treated with respect.

This has been one of the most enjoyable 30 Rock eps I've seen. It felt a little bit slower than usual but Julianne Moore was stunning as always and I laughed out loud many times. "Shark Farts" caught me by surprise, and Tina Fey "proving" how creative she is to Jack was ROTFLMAO funny. Tina Fey, who wrote the episode is a genius and proves it. I'm not a X-mas episode fan and mostly give it a miss, even on some my favourite shows, like Community and The Office and even Family Guy, because of the mushy sentiment that is pushed into our throats. This was different and I'm glad to call myself a "Rockie". Danny (Cheyenne Jackson) should also get more screen time - he is funny and obviously talented. Watch it!! Before I get a Rage-Stroke!
