I’ve succumbed again. Couldn’t resist popping in DVD after DVD of The West Wing over the weekend. Before I knew it I was halfway through season 2. I know you’ve heard me gush about it countless times before.

But anyway, some of my favourite scenes and quotes from the series this time around.

Sam : Oratory should raise your heart rate. Oratory should blow the doors off the place. We should be talking about not being satisfied with past solutions, we should be talking about a permanent revolution.
Toby : Where have I heard that?

Sam : I got it from a book… The Little Red Book.

Toby : You think we should quote Mao Tse-tung?

Sam : We do need a permanent revolution.

Toby : Still, I think we’ll stay away from quoting Communists.

Sam : You think a Communist never wrote an elegant phrase? How do you think they got everyone to be Communist?

Josh : We think if we hit the ground hard enough, we can make it to the center of the planet and find water?
Toby : Yeah.

Josh : That’s not a theory of physics pretty much disproved by Wile E. Coyote?

Margaret (to the Surgeon General): Red meat has been found to cause cancer in white rats. Maraschino cherries have been found to cause cancer in white rats. Cellular phones have been found to cause cancer in white rats. Has anyone examined the possibility that cancer might be hereditary in white rats?
