the west wing meme: ∞ nine scenes [1/9]
- The Molly Morello Memo
You love her, Josh. You really love her.
dragonsigma asked: My opinion on that Trek thing is: I understand the sentiment, but the woman was just wearing a pin. She wasn't talking about Star Trek or bringing it into work besides wearing the pin. Josh could have just said "I'm a fan too but that's not professional" instead of mocking her as a crazy when there was no indication that she was.
Let’s be fair to Joshua here, he did ask Donna to inform Janice to remove the pin, Janice did remove the pin. When Josh mentioned to her that he was grateful to her for removing the pin, Janice got feisty and threatened to appeal the decision to her superior, Stacy. It was only at this point that Josh engaged on the issue directly with Janice.
And so FYWW descends into exactly the same thing this whole subplot was about.
Thank for the response, and live long and prosper! - waitingonoblivion
cblackburn09 asked: I just re-watched an episode called "Arctic Circle" in which Josh is a total a**hole to a star trek fan for wearing a starfleet pin. So my questions is: What is the point of this plot line? Why is it in this episode? All it does is make Josh look like a jerk. To just make fun of trekkies? or to make fun of nerds in general? Any insight would be appreciated.
JOSH I'm a fan. I'm a sports fan, I'm a music fan and I'm a Star Trek fan. All of them. But here's what I don't do. Tell me if any of this sounds familiar: "Let's list our ten favorite episodes. Let's list our least favorite episodes. Let's list our favorite galaxies. Let's make a chart to see how often our favorite galaxies appear in our favorite episodes. What Romulan would you most like to see coupled with a Cardassian and why? Let's spend a weekend talking about Romulans falling in love with Cardassians and then let's do it again." That's not being a fan. That's having a fetish. And I don't have a problem with that, except you can't bring your hobbies in to work, okay? JANICE Got it. JOSH Except on Star Trek holidays. [exits] JANICE There's no such thing as a Star Trek holiday. JOSH Well, work hard around here. We'll make one. Josh walks off, and Janice smiles.
I may have to start ANOTHER West Wing rewatch
If you have Net Flix, you should watch West Wing.
Dear Friends — you should watch The West Wing.
Really really you should.
Probably a good thing, watching season five would have probably made him start smoking crack again.
This is fantastic. My decision is now Sorkin-endorsed.
Who’s that dude on the far right? I’ve watched all The West Wing episodes at least twenty times and I swear he’s not in any of them.
If you have Netflix, you should watch “The West Wing”. It’s an awesome show.
PSA: Today on Amazon.com, the complete series of The West Wing is 73% off.
They ran in to the fire today too.
