'30 Rock' recap: When Holidays Attack!

On this week's 30 Rock, "Christmas Attack Zone," Jack dared to invite his hippie pacifist father Milton (Alan Alda) and his "bare-legged cripple" mother Colleen (Elaine Stritch) to Christmas dinner at his home with the weird stairs. It was high time he and Avery announced their pregnancy, seven months in. Jackie knocked up a Protestant? Oh, the horror! What would Colleen's chums at the Death Shore Retirement Community say?!

Lemon inexplicably hung out for more than five minutes in Colleen's Christmas Attack Zone, eventually accompanying those buncha jagwagons to the hospital after Colleen faked a heart attack. False alarm! It was a Druid Solstice Miracle! As Jack basked in the glory of his bickering parents, I loved the way Lemon mouthed "Merry Christmas" on the way out of the hospital room -- it mirrored some of their cutest work-based moments as she's walked out of his office. But Stritch and Alda really made this episode great. Caller ID arrived in Vermont just in time.
