Creepiest Jack Donaghy Ever

2:28 PM

I've been watching a lot of 30 Rock reruns lately, and it might just be my favorite show of all time. It's at least in the top 3. I think it's so clever and Tina Fey's Liz Lemon is the most relatable TV character (for me personally) I've ever encountered. So today, as I stared at a blank brick page in my Walls sketchbook, I decided to draw someone near and dear to my heart...Jack Donaghy.

Let me clarify: Alec Baldwin is not near and dear to my heart, Jack is. Jack is Liz Lemon's boss on 30 Rock, and his constant ridiculous management advice and thinly-veiled insults are the perfect balance for Liz's naive, optimistic, I'd-rather-be-eating-a-donut-right-now character. Unfortunately, when I drew Jack on the brick background, he looks sort of evil. But hey, I tried.

I leave you now with some of my favorite Jack Donaghy quotes, and maybe eventually I'll draw Liz on the other page.

My fave: Jack to Liz: "I don’t know what happened in your life that caused you to develop a sense of humor as a coping mechanism. Maybe it was some sort of brace or corrective boot you wore during childhood, but in any case I’m glad you’re on my team."

Liz: "Why are you wearing a tux?"
Jack: "It's after 6. What am I, a farmer?"

Liz: "Okay, very funny. You bought a pager from Dennis. Will you take it off now, please?"
Jack: "Oh, I can't. I'm expecting a call from 1983."

And I love that every now and then they actually have genuinely sweet moments like this:
Liz: You know what I hear? It's the hug plane, and it's coming in for a landing.
Jack: [weeping] You are cleared for landing. [They hug.]
