30 Rock: Sandwich Day

Liz Handed Floyd, Makes Lemonade

After Floyd calls, asking to hang with Liz while he's passing through town, Liz maps out every moment of their time together to burn upon Floyd's subconscious the impression that Liz is The Girl Who Got Away. This includes an entire soundstage, including makeup, costume, lights and special effects (the breeze from a carefully timed wind machine), not to mention a script of witty banter. They have dinner, and then stroll through the streets like characters out of "Sex & the City." At the end of the night, Floyd hails a cab, kisses her goodbye, and rides away looking over his shoulder, all according to plan.

"Poor guy got Lemoned, hard."

And then things falls apart. Floyd has flight trouble, and comes back, catching Liz off-guard, without a script and looking her worst. She tries to rally, but quickly confronts him over their falling off instead. They spar. He gets notified that his flight is back on, and has to go -- so they agree to talk later. But then, Liz passes him on the street, and discovers he lied about his flight in order to get away from her. They fight some more. Hard words are spoken. It's all more charming and funny than it sounds.

Now, over in the Writer's Room, everyone partakes of "Sandwich Day" -- that day, once a year, when the Teamsters bring in the most delicious sandwiches ever, purchased from their secret source. And when their sandwiches are gone, well, they eat Liz's, choosing to later face her wrath. She demands they replace her sandwich or she will cut them, which eventually leads to a drinking contest against the Teamsters, led by Jenna and buttressed by Kenneth. Against all odds, they win Liz a new sandwich.

Meanwhile, Jack contends with the fallout of Devon Banks appointing his wife, Kathy Geiss, as CEO. Jack is demoted to the 12th Floor, a walking graveyard. Despite all of his attempts to revive Don Geiss from his coma -- including pounding him and shouting in his face -- Jack fails, and begins to sense the winds of change. One voice tells him to leave G.E. Another suggests he cash in a favor with the current Republican administration.

Liz collects her sandwich, and runs into Jack, telling him how badly things worked out with Floyd. Jack advises her to rethink her choices while she's still young...ish. Liz rushes to the airport to catch Floyd while she still can -- but gets stalled at Security when the dipping sauce for her sandwich exceeds the 3oz limit. Vowing, "I can have it all," Liz chokes down the sandwich and races to Floyd. They reconcile, and he takes off, still holding the key to her apartment. On the news, Liz learns about Jack's appointment with Homeland Security.

Great Lines

Jack: You know who hates unicorns? Marky Mark.

Floyd: Let's go to dinner at the BBQ place where you puked.
Liz: You'll have to be more specific.

Tracy: I've still got my Hollywood sock!

Jack: You're (wobbles hand) young.

Liz: I wolfed my Teamster sub for you.
Floyd: Wait. No. Is that a saying?

Best Line

Kenneth: Alcohol! This tastes just like Hill People Milk! I've been drinking this since I was a baby!

Next Week: Is Liz PREGNANT? Or does she just have a Sandwich Belly?

So many hilarious moments in this episode...

1) The flashback of Liz freaking out about her mac & cheese.

2) When Liz scarfed down her sandwich in the airport security line.

3) When Jonathan pulled out the collage that he made for Jack.

Also, was Brian Dennehy's face just a tad bit too close to Jenna's boobs during the drunken sing along?

One of my favorites of the season... it definitely gave me a hankering for sandwiches as well.

Did anybody else get a "Punch Drunk Love" vibe from this, especially in the use of music and some of the running around? Great episode!

This was one of the best eps. Jonathan singing and the collage were hysterical.

IT WAS THE SAME MUSIC!! I think they did that on purpose. Its the same chord progression.
