1. Lemon on Religion - Tracy: So what's your religion, Liz Lemon?

Liz: I pretty much just do whatever Oprah tells me to. - 1.17, The Fighting Irish

2. Lemon on Race - No, Tracy took advantage of my white guilt, which is supposed to be used only for good, like over-tipping and supporting Barack Obama. - 1.5, Jack-Tor

3. Lemon on Economics - I need to do that thing that rich people do where they turn money into more money. Can you teach me how to do that? - 2.4, Rosemary's Baby

4. Lemon on Nutrition - Thanks, it's my own recipe. I use cheddar cheese instead of water. - 3.11, St. Valentine's Day

5. Lemon on the Media - If reality TV has taught us anything, it's that you can't keep people with no shame down. - 2.12, Subway Hero

7. Lemon on the Importance of Honesty - Liz: No, I'm going to tell Drew that I'm having a little welcome to the building party for him but there is no party and then when he shows up I'll laugh and say 'oh it's the wrong night' and then he'll laugh and say one glass couldn't hurt and then I will put my mouth on his mouth. - 3.10, Generalissimo

8. Lemon on Workplace Relations - Liz: I hate going up to Donaghy's office even for something normal. I always feel like I'm entering the Death Star. I swear if Donaghy does this [does Darth Vader force strangle] at me, I'll run. - 1.4, Jack the Writer

Best Liz Lemon moment is, "I don't really think its fair that I should be on a jury... because I can read thoughts..." *While dressed as prince leah and in the most ridiculous voice!* HILARIOUS!

Great list, no.7 is the best. I also loved the end of 1.15 - Hardball: Josh is re-negoitiating his contract and Liz wants to punish him after for making her look stupid and simply shouts 'DO THE WORM!' (which he does) and then to his agent randomly 'YOU, BE A CRAB......FIGHT THE WORM!'

Yeah, how did "I want to go to there," not make the cut? I just love her facial expression when she says it!
