In the first season of 30 Rock, Liz Lemon looks on as her best friend/employee/all-around nuisance Jenna Maroney prepares for a photo shoot. The shoot is for Maxim’s hottest women in comedy issue — of which Jenna came in fourth — so naturally, Jenna is decked out in red lingerie and lace, patiently pausing to allow an assistant to rub oil on her legs. Or, rather, salad dressing. “It gets a better sheen,” Jenna says, excitedly.
“Jenna, this is ridiculous,” Liz counters. “What does any of this have to do with comedy?”
