A romance for Jack, a hallucination for Liz, and some ferocious screaming from Jenna? It’s like a Valentine just for me! “Anna Howard Shaw Day,” while lacking in the Kenneth, Grizz, Dot Com, and Pete departments, was still a total heart-warmer. Floyd! Dennis! Drew! Here were the 10 best lines:

“Tech stocks, Foxy Moneybags! Tech stocks!” — Liz, who gets all her financial advice from PBS

“You are truly the Picasso of loneliness.” — Jack, who knows all about the the Lifetime original movie My Stepson is My Cyberhusband

“Would a fake woman have a personal website at backslash Karen backslash proof?” — Lutz, who’s letting Valentine’s Day win

“I have a new therapist, I’m taking my meds, I can’t even see electricity shooting out of your head anymore.” — Maynard, who is probably moving on to one of Jenna’s peers, like Julia Roberts

“No, the Peacecorp, Lawrence Peace’s corporation. We drilled for oil in gorilla habitats.” — Avery, whose thing for commanding salt-and-pepper types probably started when she walked in on her parents doing it the day Reagan was shot

“We’re going to pick up some pierogies and eat them at her husband’s grave.” — Frank, who knows Liz’s ghost is going to see some disgusting stuff

“Please do not say what Doug is // Doug is my vibrator.” — Kenneth and Jenna, who could both benefit from that terrifying “gender-neutralizing” hood

“Maybe someday we’ll live in a world where you’ll ask us to pretend to be scientists!” — Dot Com, who did not get nearly enough to do in this episode

This one’s not a line but: Jenna’s fridge of babydoll heads is one of the most brilliantly strange and creepy things I have ever seen. I’m counting it.

“Watching The Color Purple drunk with you was one of the funnest nights of my life.” — Liz, who saw Avery on Maxim’s “I’d Rape That 100” list

This was one of the loopiest, silliest episodes in a while, but it worked. The closing scene with Jon Hamm, Jason Sudekis, and Dean Winters with Jamaican accents, wearing scrubs? Too amazing. “Anna Howard Shaw Day” provided Tina Fey with her most interesting acting showcase all season, and Liz and Jack have become the best BFF duo on TV.

What’d you think, PopWatchers? Bon Jovi, Horatio Sanz, Elizabeth Banks, and all of Liz’s boyfriends in one episode — too much? Or just enough?
