So, our second season of 30 Rock came today and the husband and I immediately sat down to watch something like 8 episodes in a row immediately. Not even ten minutes into the first episode and I remembered again why I love Tina Fey.
Alec Baldwin’s character finds out that Liz Lemon had broken up with her boyfriend and was not concerned about getting married. His response: “Lemon, a woman your age has a better chance of getting mauled at the zoo than getting married.” My husband and I both laughed but afterwards I turned to him and said:
“Anyone but Tina Fey and I would have written it off, but I am pretty sure that she remembers the false report from the 80s that a middle aged woman has a better chance of getting killed by a terrorist than getting married and that line is a direct shout out.”
I really hope I’m right.
