WEST WING S1.E18 :: SIX MEETINGS BEFORE LUNCH

🐼🐼🐼🐼🐼🐼🐼🐼🐼🐼🐼🐼
  1. β€’
    Theoretical question :: is six meetings before lunch better or worse than one LONG meeting before lunch?
    I vote better. Long meetings are LONG.. At least multiple meetings creates the illusion of getting something done.

    Oh Toby and his fear of tempting fate. πŸ’›
    "This is my day of jubilee and I will not have it screwed up by tempting fate!"

    I've always felt that Mandy's idea about getting a panda bear as a PR move was ridiculous. But then I experienced Washington's real life freak out over the panda babies this year.. And I think I must grudgingly give her some credit. Apparently people love pandas.
  4. β€’
    "A panda's what I think it is, right?"
    No.. Apparently not, Josh. πŸΌπŸ”€πŸ¨

    Sam: "It's my day of jubilee."
    Mallory: "I despise you and everything you stand for."
  6. β€’
    I really don't understand why Sam doesn't just tell Mallory that he isn't in favor of school vouchers.
    It would save a lot of time.
  7. β€’
    Oh.. It's the episode where CJ does The Jackal.
    I have mixed feelings on this. Mostly I am weirded out by how exactly this guy's voice matches Allison Janney's.
  8. β€’
    3000 letters in 10 days about panda bears?β€½
    Why am I afraid that this is not an exaggeration? 😳
  9. β€’
    Well hello there, Mr. Lumbly. I loved you in Alias.
  10. β€’
    I don't envy Josh this meeting.
    Reparations are such a difficult topic.
  11. β€’
    I love happy Toby 😁
    "You should turn that frown upside down, Margaret!"
  12. β€’
    "You know what you never do? You never tell me you like my suspenders."
    Oh, Danny. πŸ’›
  13. β€’
    Leave it to Mandy to wreck Toby's good mood!
  14. β€’
    Ha! Yes.. Way to kiss him, Zoey!
    Charlie looks very pleased with himself.
  15. β€’
    And hello Mr. Choi! There are all sorts of famous faces in this episode.
  16. β€’
    "Get in the President's face?? That's your advice?"
    You can do it, CJ! And as Sam so wisely says, it's what he needs you to do.
  17. β€’
    Toby: "Then get us two regular bears, a bucket of black paint, a bucket of white paint, bam, bam, next case."
    Mandy: "It's hard to believe that the wildlife lobby was worried about you."

    "Education is the silver bullet. Education is everything. We don't need little changes, we need gigantic, monumental changes. Schools should be palaces. The competition for the best teachers should be fierce. They should be making six figure salaries."
    Wise words, Mr. Sorkin.
  19. β€’
    "Do you think I could take George Washington?"
    An important presidential thought, obviously.
  20. β€’
    CJ is amazing. She totally gets in the president's face without being disrespectful.
  21. β€’
    "You can't kidnap a civilization and sell them into slavery. No amount of money will make up for it. And all you have to do is look at race relations 200 years later in this country."
