For seven seasons, 30 Rock fulfilled our most American need: “to sit on a couch talking on the phone about a TV show they’re watching based on a YouTube clip.” Well…okay, everything except the YouTube part. Now at 8:00pm EST tonight, the show draws to a close with double episodes “Hogcock!” and “Last Lunch.” We learned so much about the universe created by Tina Fey and her team of affable weirdos, from Liz’s struggle to find love to the importance of finishing your morning shower scotch. The most valuable lessons we learned, however, had to do with being famous: what to do with your new-found wealth (spend it on exotic sharks!), how to maintain your youthful glow (eating any placentas you can get your hands on!) and how to never, ever, ever go out with Mickey Rourke. A man with a catapult and a sex grill? That’s a deal breaker, ladies!
So we thought we’d round up the show’s 15 most important lessons about being a celebrity, which will be tremendously helpful if we manage to get cast in The Rural Juror 2 or Honkey Grandma Be Tripping In Jail. As Dr. Spaceman once put it, “There’s not really a name for what Tracy has. Basically, it’s erratic tendencies and delusions brought on by excessive notoriety.” Ah yes…we believe you call that fame.
