30 Rock, "Apollo, Apollo"

As 30 Rock's NBC executive Jack Donaghy, Alec Baldwin has basically been teaching a comedy master class since 2006. Here, footage from an old home movie intrigues Donaghy, who tries to discover the childhood birthday gift that made him so deliriously happy that he threw up. Coupled with a subplot that spelled out the obvious-in-retrospect parallels between 30 Rock and The Muppet Show, this was a 30 Rock funny and sweet enough to make you sick. In a good way.
