It has been my pleasure, during these past two seasons, to cover the funniest sitcom on TV; however, this will be my last recap of 30 Rock. As much as I would love to continue along with you on this journey, I have made a very serious vow to retool my personal calendar. Beginning this week, I am making Thursday, Friday. You understand, that means that Friday will be my new Thursday, and Saturday will be Friday. Sundays will still be Sundays, and Tuesdays are being removed altogether (to avoid the show Reaper), but from now on Monday is going to be called Rom-Nom-Nomday. It's complicated. I aim to actively petition our government to institute this massive overhaul in America's lunar calendar, but until we can all be on the same page again, it will be literally impossible for me to recap 30 Rock on its proper night -- proper night to you, not to me. I digress. Seriously though, it has been my sincere pleasure to do the recaps for a great site, and I really do hope you enjoyed at least some of what I did here. In the event that you did, keep in mind that I update my blog over at SlapClap.com almost daily. It might be worth a bookmark. Toodles kids, but first the recap!
While Jack and Elisa wait in line for food at a street cart, a dad struggles to hold on to, among other things, a child and a plush toy. Thankfully, it's the plush toy that accidentally falls to the sidewalk, and Elisa walks over to hand it back to him. Jack pities the poor fellow: "Look at this guy. He used to be a man once." But Elisa is offended. "Don't you want what he has one day? Family, wife, children?" Jack freezes up, alarmed by the implication. Afterwards, he seeks out Lemon for relationship advice. He senses that Elisa is ready for the next step, and he wants another woman's opinion on the matter. For her part, Lemon feels the need to clarify that, yes, she is a woman, despite what her doctor had to say on the matter, and that what all women want to know is where their relationship is headed. Jack explains that he is ready for the next step -- probably because that next step is sex. Jack and Elisa have "pleasured one another," but have never gone all the way. Elisa is waiting for a full commitment from him before they can go any farther. So Lemon tells Jack two things in closing: the first is that he must be truthful, no matter what, and the second is that she has had sex two more times than him this year. She puts her hand up, waiting for a high five. "Don't leave a brotha hanging!" (Grudgingly, Jack does not.)
