On last night's episode of 30 Rock, a determined Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) drags boyfriend Criss (James Marsden) to the Brooklyn Ikea to buy a KÜRTZ table in birch veneer. "Have you ever been to an Ikea? Do you know what we're walking into?" asks Liz outside, just as an older couple emerges fighting from the furnishings store. ("You know what? I like myself. I have good taste in drapes." "I wish I died in Iwo Jima and never met you.") After getting lost (of course!) in the Marketplace and eventually finding the KÜRTZ, Criss think it's "kinda uptight" and suggests they buy a table from "a guy who cuts glass." "We are not letting this table be a metaphor for our relationship," Liz says. "That's what Ikea wants us to do!" Watch below.
Talking about director Leslye Headland, he added, "She was so excited to take my image from Enchanted and just like, take a big dump on it. Turn it completely upside-down... but it's a fun character to play."
