"30 Rock" returns this week for its seventh and final season, which means we only have thirteen episodes left to enjoy Liz Lemon's antics -- what the what?! Tina Fey's role as the TGS head writer has been entertaining us since 2006 with her quick wit, strange neuroses, and quirky catchphrases (Liz, we always "want to go to there" with you).
Lemon is a favorite with both viewers and critics: Fey's portrayal of the character has won her two Golden Globes, one Emmy, three Screen Actors Guild Awards, one People's Choice Award, and one Critic's Choice Television Award.
The character's popularity may stem from the fact that she's so different from other female characters on TV. Fey told Elle's Rachel Rosenblitt that women often relate to Liz Lemon in a way they can't always relate to the more glamorous women on television:
I did a book tour last spring, and so many of the women who came looked exactly like me: glasses, brown hair, horizontal-striped shirts. A lot of them saying, "People in my office call me Liz Lemon." She certainly looks normal, and her life is not romanticized too much. I really like 'Sex and the City,' but I view it as a different genre of fantasy fulfillment, like, What if I was awesome and I wore heels and went out at night?!
So in honor of the final season of "30 Rock" and one of the best female TV characters out there, we've made a short quiz to find out just how well we all know Liz Lemon. Test your knowledge below!
