The Smell Of Freedom
Mrs. Landingham: [on her new car] When you get inside, there's this...
Mrs. Landingham: How did you know?
Bartlet: It's the smell of freedom... and the chemicals they treat your dashboard with.
POTUS: Where are we going?
Leo: The basement.
Leo: Because I don't like the way it looks, the seven of us meeting in the middle of the night.
POTUS: You like the way it looks if we're meeting in the basement?
Bartlet: "Good morning! I’m speaking to you live from the West Wing of the White House. Today we have a very unique opportunity to take part live in an extremely historic event which -" Whoa, boy.
Sam: How you doing, Mr. President?
Bartlet: Who wrote this intro?
Scott Tate: I did, sir. I’m Scott Tate from NASA Public Affairs.
Bartlet: Scott, unique means “one of a kind.” Something can’t be very unique, nor can it be extremely historic.
CJ: While we’re at it, do we have to use the word “live” twice in the first two sentences like we just cracked the technology?
Tate: Look -
CJ: We’re also broadcasting in living color, right?
Bartlet: He’s gonna make some changes.
Tate: You’re going to clear them with me?
Sam: I doubt it. Write this: “Good morning. Eleven months ago a 1200 pound spacecraft blasted off from Cape Canaveral, Florida. Eighteen hours ago…” Is it eighteen hours ago? We’re on the air at noon eastern.
Sam: “Eighteen hours ago it landed on the planet Mars. You, me, and 60,000 of your fellow students across the country along with astroscientists and engineers from the Jet Propulsion Lab in Southern California, NASA in Houston, and right here at the White House, are going to be the first to see what it sees, and to chronicle the extraordinary voyage of an unmanned ship called Galileo V.”
Bartlet: He said it right.
If you ask me, it’s softcore porn. Nobody needs to massage garlic oil into a leg...– Margaret on Leo’s favourite cooking show, THE WEST WING. (via love-and-radiation)
The First Lady just asked me to get boozy with her. You think I don’t want to...– Amy Gardner, The West Wing. (via love-and-radiation)
POTUS: Never doubt that a group of thoughtful and committed citizens can change the world. You know why?
Will: It's the only thing that ever has.
Asst. Sec. Lilly: Are you rewriting the section?
Will: Yes sir
Asst. Sec. Lilly: Dramatically?
Will: Well I like to think I have a certain flair.
