Funniest Lines From Tracy Jordan on '30 Rock'

Every week, 30 Rock is full of hilariously quotable lines, none so funny or so flat-out weird as the strangely compelling proclamations of the insane Tracy Jordan. At least part of the effect is in the excellent delivery from actor Tracy Morgan (who's more than a little bit like his character in real life), but I still dare you not to laugh reading over my favorite Tracy Jordan quotes.
