If last night’s 30 Rock led you to wake up speaking baby talk, please direct your sincere thanks to its scene-stealer Abby Flynn, played by newcomer Cristin Milioti.

While Liz was trying to promote female equality in the workplace, most of her fellow TGS staffers were too transfixed by Abby’s baby hooker getup (shorts and pigtails) and cutesy toddler drawl to notice. But the raunchy comedian proved to be more complex than Liz originally thought (as well as more vulnerable), and in real life, the 25-year old actress successfully held her own against Tina Fey, the Queen of today's female comedians.

Her recent stint at 30 Rock may be her most high-profile role to date, but the Cherry Hill, New Jersey native has also had guest appearances on The Sopranos, and was featured in the Manhattan Theater Club’s 2010 production of That Face. Considering Liz (or Judas, as she’s now known to women everywhere) revealed Abby’s true identity, causing her to hit the road in attempts of escaping her homicidal ex-husband, we may not be seeing her anytime soon. But who knows? Maybe TGS will develop a child-hating problem. —EMILY EXTON
