Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) contemplates marriage on "30 Rock," airing tonight.

Liz Lemon puts a ring on it.

In the latest installment of "30 Rock" (8 p.m. Thursday, WBIR, Channel 10), the career gal (played by Tina Fey, who also writes and produces the show) will be off the market — if all goes as planned. Who knew it was going to happen now? Liz has been single during the sitcom's entire run. No one expected her to get hitched this close to this classic sitcom's ending.

Liz's intended is Criss Chros (James Marsden), of course, the man she wants to start a family with. Jack (Alec Baldwin) should be her best man; Jenna (Jane Krakowski) could sing.

Regardless of whether it actually happens — all bets are off — I am expecting a bounty of quotable one-liners around the watercooler Friday.

Here are samples of recent ones:

Mel: Why don't you act like a woman driver and get lost?

Jenna: Because I'd rather make like the father I never had and stay.


Liz: My bunions are out of control. The doctor says the only explanation is that one of my ancestors mated with a dinosaur.


Jack: Lemon, do you think I'm a villain?

Liz: Well, I have heard you say, "Guards, seize him!"

Jack: That was at a Knicks game, and they needed to stop the clock.


Liz: If I could push a button and five people in the world would die, but I'd get free cable for life, I'd do it.


Liz: Will you ask Congress where they put the USA Network? I've been trying to find 'Monk' for, like, three months.


Liz: I don't think you wanna take advice from me on this. I ate a Three Musketeers bar for lunch and this bra is held together by tape.
