“A Pair of Them White Jeans”: 30 Rock’s Finest Florida Jokes

As I return from a weekend in my home state, I’d like to take a moment to honor the show responsible for bringing us more Florida jokes than anything else in the modern era, sans the news. And no, I’m not talking about Cougar Town. Our dearly departed 30 Rock held onto the Sunshine State like James Franco onto a Japanese body pillow, and I will always, always love it for that.  Buckle your seatbelts, y’all; we’re going on a road trip!

And just ALL-AROUND CLASSY.

“Think about it, Liz. Florida! I can rent a convertible. You can complain about the heat with elderly people!”–Pete Hornberger.

“It’s Florida, Jack. It’s like it never stopped being the 70s down there. And a guy like Paul, who can drive at night? You just don’t say no to that.”–Colleen Donaghy

But mostly, Florida is a safe place to live.
