Danza Moment of the Week/Did ’30 Rock’ Rip-Off ‘Taxi’?

It’s a twofer this week with our Tony Danza Moment coinciding with our suspicions over a recent 30 Rock joke.  Take a look at the offending excerpt, and then check out a classic clip from Taxi (featuring  Mr. Danza), and you decide:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Homage?  Plagiarism?  Coincidence?  Something from Tina Fey’s subconscious?  We’ll likely never know.

But perhaps this calls for Danza to guest star on 30 Rock (they’ve exhausted just about everyone else anyway).  Maybe as new “TGS” cast member Tony Gargonzola?  A new, older love interest for Liz Lemon?  A Kabletown rival executive for Jack?  The possibilities are limited!

(we should also note that Danza had nothing to do in that Taxi scene besides stand there quietly and doodle on a piece of paper.  But if you watch him closely (as we always do) he’s totally breaking by the end.  And do you know why?  Because his heart is pure)
