'30 Rock': The best lines from 'There's No I In America'

Posted on

Ali Goldstein/NBC

Hurricane Sandy rocked the East Coast and NBC’s prime-time lineup, giving us an all-new episode of 30 Rock on a Wednesday night instead of Thursday. The sheer madness! So in lieu of my usual 30 Rock recap, let’s get right down to business with the top 10 lines from “There’s No I In America.”

++ “What America needs it four more years of the stuff Obama’s been doing. Like, umm, the one with the guy. It was at night, and I feel like he was standing next to a fence.” —Liz

++ “You two can talk about America all you want. But I’m not going to listen, because there’s no i or me in America.” —Jenna

++ “She’s aging, mean, and rich. That sounds Republican to me.” —Jack, about Jenna

++ “Every pair you buy, they give a pair to a child who was forced to work in the factory that makes these shoes.” —Lemon

++ Liz: “So maybe you should let me rub off on you.”

Jack: “You wish. You pervert.”

++ “Let me tell you who we have. Craig T. Nelson, Chuck Norris, and Charlton Heston’s skull. You’d be the only cool Republican.” —Jack

++ “You want to be an American. You fill out that ballot because you don’t know what you’re doing.” —Tracy

++ Liz: “How do you sleep at night, Jack?”

Jack: “I don’t. I take thousands of micro-naps during the day.”

++ “Shut up, Pete. There’s no hope. Not for you or for this country. If Joni Mitchell were here, she’d be like, ‘The big man won’t give peace a chance, the cobblestones, cobblestones.'”

++ “Deviousness? I guess two can play at that game. Just like most games.” —Liz
