Greatest quote ever? Possibly? No. Definitely!!!
My blog friends, Nickel-Guy and the Queen have been blogging at me to watch NBC's 30 Rock for quite a while. And for some reason I decided to sit down and view my first ever webisode - of any show ever - and I'm greeted with this very scene featuring Alec Baldwin's character (whom I'm sure has a character name) telling Tina Fey that he gets his haircut every two days because, ""after all, your hair is your head suit."
I have a book on my desk containing over 10,000 memorable, poignant quotes. None compare to this.
At the risk of just telling you the whole episode, I'll just say the brief sequence of images and his hair-tastrophy from his past spoke to me. Shook me to the core, actually.
Watching 30 Rock tonight, Friday the seventeenth of November in the year of our lord two-thousand and seven, I now see the world in a whole new way. Brighter. Funnier.
Oh, but it didn't end there. Alec Baldwin's hair was a running gag!!! Are you kidding? A total send-up to It's Gary Shandling's Show ...and to me. A shtick I totally stole from It's Gary Shandling's Show.
Look at his hair! It's awesome! He brushed a woman's hair as foreplay!?!?!? I thought I was the only one!!!
I still don't think Tracey Morgan is funny. Nothing will change that. Sorry. Luckily his unfunniness was off-set by Fred Armison whom I think is the funniest man on TV. He's a sleeper pick for that title, but he is. Period. Bup, bup, bup. I won't hear another word on this. Moving on.
For this ...Queen and Nickel-Guy ...I'm forever grateful. I don't even care that the show is basically The Larry Sander's Show modernized and delivered with new characters. Cuz really, that show was simply a rehash of The Dick Van Dyke Show. Am I missing another show about writers writing a show? News Radio and The Mary Tyler Moore Show also were behind the scenes of shows. There's a word for this genre ...what is it?
Oh, yes. Comedy gold!!!
I'm off to have a White Rum with a diet ginger ale and splash of lime. A "Nancy Drew" ...but for men, it's called a "Hardy Boy." Yum!
Do you believe in love at first sight? I never did ...until now. I ...love ...you ...30 Rock.
