WEST WING S1.E21 :: LIES, DAMN LIES, AND STATISTICS

"Is that a real country?"
  1. β€’
    I think Josh would be utterly lost without Donna.
  2. β€’
    "This may come as a shock to you, but 80% of the people in this country would use the word 'average' to describe themselves. They do not find the term deprecating."
    This would come as a shock to Josh, Mr. I am a graduate of Harvard and Yale.
  3. β€’
    I would be all in on this argument about polling language. This is the stuff that I love.
  4. β€’
    I love how CJ shines in this episode.
    She's so courageous! Way to make a ballsy prediction about the polling results, even when everyone else is being a Debbie Downer.
  5. β€’
    I wonder how polling works in the age of cell phones? Do pollsters still make phone calls?
  6. β€’
    Oh Leo and his little tricks. He really is shameless with his Marine gun twirling demonstration.
  7. β€’
    Do we think the President has a "nightcap" with the attorney general and the secretary of the treasury in real life?
    It's kind of hard to imagine.
  8. β€’
    "Leo.. A dress marine guarding your door?"
    "Too showy?" 😁
  9. β€’
    Sam and Laurie :: are there feelings there? Aren't there? What about Mallory?? Sam.. You confuse me.
  10. β€’
    "No, I was sitting on a bench having a bagel, but from where I was both jogging and sculling looked good to me."
    Words that could be my own.
  11. β€’
    "The Federated States of Micronesia."
    "Toby says it's a country."
  12. β€’
    Toby: (following the president's monologue on Micronesia and it's demographics) "Why would a person have that information at their disposal?"
    President Bartlet: "Parties."
  13. β€’
    Joey Lucas is amazing too!
    I love how she stands up to Josh and his Joshness.
  14. β€’
    "When I get back, you're going to argue with me, and we're going to argue about the things that I want to argue about, and you're going to do your best not to annoy me too much."
    Good luck with that, Josh.
  15. β€’
    Danny: "You can't stay pissed at me forever."
    CJ: "Let's find out."
  16. β€’
    CJ: "What are you doing here?"
    Josh: "I'm kind of in charge of moral."
  17. β€’
    I would never forgive my friend for selling me out to the press. I can't imagine that level of betrayal.
    That being said, Sam is incredibly sweet here. πŸ’ΌπŸŽ
  18. β€’
    President Bartlet: "Toby, are you in here sticking up for Sam?"
    Toby: "I know it's strange, sir, but I'm feeling a certain big brotherly connection to Sam right now. Obviously I'd like that feeling to go away as soon as possible." πŸ’›
  19. β€’
    "Tell her the President of the United States says congratulations on getting her degree."
    πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›
  20. β€’
    I love it when we get to see democrats and republicans working together on this show.
    If only it happened more in real life.
  21. β€’
    Josh: "He thinks of you like a daughter, CJ."
    CJ: "That's not a good enough reason to keep me here."
  22. β€’
    "You're having a fight with Alexis de Tocqueville?"
  23. β€’
    CJ: "I was wrong. We went up nine points." 😊😊😊
