Last night’s 30 Rock revolved around Liz’s efforts to organize her life and get out of jury duty by dressing up as Princess Leia, her staff’s (and the arsonist for whom she was a juror’s) attempts to drive her to burn her office to the ground, and Jack’s co-opting of the writers (“Shut up, everybody!

Liz takes Tracy to task for thinking he can use his own money to pay FCC fines for saying bad words on the air. I can’t tell what they’re saying here, but I’m pretty sure the word “jizz” is involved. If you read lips well, please help. I have to know:

If you missed the whole episode, it’s on Hulu as usual. Don’t forget: Tracy Morgan is hosting SNL tomorrow night. It’d better be perfect!
