As hard as this news is to swallow (almost as hard as a catfish Po’ boy with extra chuckle), 30 Rock is finally coming to an end. With the finale airing on Thursday night, we are faced with bidding farewell to all of the kooks, loons, and criminally insane sociopaths who have hung around Studio 6H for the past seven years. And although these goodbyes might inspire tears, remembering the good times, inimitable quotes, and legacies of Liz, Jack, Tracy, Jenna, Kenneth, and the rest of the cast is sure to inspire laughter. So weep not, nerds! Click through our gallery of 30 Rock‘s 30 Greatest Characters, reflecting on iconic images, memorable one-liners, and bizarre adventures of everyone from Ms. Lemon herself to that lovable vagrant Moonvest.
