Favorite 30 Rock Moments.
stayforthecredits:

FRANK: Check out this chart. You see, as artificial representations of humans become more and more realistic, they reach a point where they stop being endearing and become creepy.
TRACY: Tell it to me in Star Wars.
FRANK: Alright. We like R2-D2 [points to “industrial robot”] and C-3PO [“humanoid robot”]. 
TRACY: They’re nice.
FRANK: And up here [points to “healthy person”] we have a real person like Han Solo.
TRACY: He acts like he doesn’t care, but he does.
FRANK: [pointing to the “uncanny valley”] But down here we have a CGI stormtrooper or Tom Hanks in The Polar Express.
TRACY: I’m scared! Get me outta there!
