*brought to you by the hours and hours of west wing i've watched. here's some of my favorite quotes so far:
"bring me the finest muffins and bagels in all the land."
"oh, I'm sorry, dear. Would you like a cookie?"
"i'm proud to report our country's stranger than it was a year ago?"
"once again you display an immaturity about vegetables that I think is not at all Presidential."
"the day-to-day experience of my life has changed in many ways since taking this job."
"you're not going to spoil my good time for me."
"oh, sir, I think we both know from experience that's not true."
"i can sign the President's name. I have his signature down pretty good."
"a long flight across the night. you know why late flights are good? because we cease to be earthbound and burdened with practicality. asking important questions. talking about the idea that nobody has thought about yet."
"i'm calling you Deputy Downer from now on."
"it'd be good. by day, they churn butter and worship according to their own beliefs, and by night they solve crimes."
"i've never found anything in my life remotely charming."
"i'd be perfectly happy never to say any of those words anywhere ever again."
"a thing the size of a garbage truck is gonna be in a two-thousand-mile-an-hour free fall and no one knows where it's gonna hit!"
"i'm rooting for Zurich. I've had it up to here with the Swiss."
"if politics bring out the worst in people, maybe people bring out the best."
"but listen, don't worry about all this right now. we got you covered. worry about school. worry about what you'll tell your parents when you break curfew. you're gonna meet guys. you're gonna meet girls. learn things, be good to each other. read the newspapers, go to the movies, go to a party, read a book. in the meantime, remember pluralism. you want to get these people? i mean, you really want to in and kill them where they live? keep accepting more than one idea. makes them absolutely crazy."
