What I'll Miss About 30 Rock

Today, 30 Rock goes off the air. It's one of my favorite TV shows, and I'm going to miss it. Here is a list of things I'm going to miss about it.
  • Liz Lemon. "I want to go to there."
  • The movie Jefferson, made by Tracy Jordan with him playing all the parts. "It's not a comedy. It's a drama."
  • Leap Day Williams, climbing up from the Mariana Trench.
  • Jon Hamm in blackface with an indignant Tracy Morgan.
  • Sabor de Soledad: Ahora con mas semen de toro!
  • Dennis Duffy, the Beeper King. "Technology is cyclical."
  • Everything Leo Spaceman said. "I'm a real doctor, with a degree from the Ho Chi Minh City School of Medicine."
  • Dot-Com and Grizz. "Some day, I hope you'll ask us to fake being scientists."
  • Cerie's cluelessness. "Cerie, I'm over 40." "I don't know what that means."
  • Stacy Keach, growling two separate commercials for CouchTown and another for Bazooka Joe gum.
  • Buzz Aldrin, yelling at the moon: "I walked on your face!"
  • The great names they've used: Floyd DeBarber, Paul L'astname, Criss Chros, Carol Burnett.
  • Margaret Cho as Kim Jong-Il.
  • The failed Dealbreakers pilot. "Wave! Like a normal person!... Are you spinning a basketball?"
  • The benefit concert to get Jack Donaghy's father a kidney, called "Kidney Now!"
  • Buck Henry as Liz Lemon's father, Dick Lemon. "You can't have a Lemon party without old Dick!"
  • The final heir to the Hapsburg dynasty, played by Paul Reubens with a ceramic hand. "I'm old enough to rent a car! HAAAA! It feels good to laugh."
  • "Here comes the Funcooker!"
  • "Let's not play the blame game." "Of course, I'm not wearing my outfit."
  • "Tracy Jordan, the Black Crusaders are coming for you."
  • "I don't like it here! I don't wanna be here! Who is this guy!"
  • "I don't like 'Tubman.' That sounds sexist. Can we change that to 'Tubgirl'?"
  • "No, Liz Lemon, I believe you dress me up as Oprah because you're concerned about maintaining our dignity."
  • "Happy Valentine's Day, no one!"
  • "So it's not the bandito blanco, a name for cocaine I just made up?"
  • "A Mr. Brett Fav-ruh sent you this picture. I think it's a hot dog."
  • "This is how I cry now after you had me get that offbrand eye surgery!"
Godspeed, 30 Rock. You shall be missed.
