'30 Rock' recap: 'We’re on a show within a show'

Thursday night’s back-to-back episodes of “30 Rock” advanced Jack’s plan to get Avery back from still-alive-in-the-30-Rock-universe Kim Jong Il.  He was so determined he even went to see Matt Lauer’s band Rhythm and News play.  For 4 hours.

Jenna offered a solution:  a Lifetime movie with her starring as Avery.  “Her story has everything.  Blondness, kidnapping, a villain with an accent.  It’s the perfect TV movie.”

Jack asked Liz to write the screenplay for the greatest love story ever told (Liz: “You mean Lois Lane’s love affair with journalism?  I said it.”) as a favor for 6 years of listening to her “complain about how there are so few women on death row.”  Liz:  “Is it a coincidence?  Or is the system sexist?”
