Just sayin'

TrillianAstra Mon 26-Sep-11 22:32:09

Good, I'm glad you all agree.

MNHQ is just having you on [wunk]

You damn right.

It wasn't your fault. It wasn't Gina's fault, it wasn't Charlie's fault, it wasn't
anybody's fault, Toby. It was an act of madmen. You think a tent was going
to stop them? We got the President in the car. We got Zoey in the car. And at 150 yards, five stories up, the shooters were down 9.2 seconds after the first shot was fired. I would never let you not let me protect the President. You tell us you don't like something, we figure out something else. It was an act of madmen.

Anyway, the Secret Service doesn't comment on procedure.

Ha! Olivia really did!

Fiderer Tue 27-Sep-11 08:29:54

Oh yes, but then Toby says this, and I'm all confused -

We're Batman and Robin!
Which one's which?
Look at me, Sam. Am I Robin?
I'm not Robin.
Yes, you are.
Okay, well, let's move off this.
You bet, little friend.
They walk through the Mess toward the STAIRS.
Listen, we're really not Batman and Robin.
No, we'll keep those identities secret. I'm Bruce Wayne, and you're my ward...

I think I may have to leave Sam to Olivia <generosity personified> while I sidle into Toby's office. Ron Butterfield was very fine in the TSSDNCOP scene.

Toby though, has my heart. "Happiness is my default position" and "I'm smiling on the inside." No transcript site necessary for those.

But for this, I watched it again last night. Still the most unexpected speech ever.

"We're a team. From the President and Leo on through, we're a team. We win together, we lose together, we celebrate and we mourn together. And defeats are softened and victories sweetened because we did them together.

And if you don't like this team... then, there's the door... It's great to be in the know. It's great to have the scoop, to have the skinny, to be able to go to a reporter and say, "I know something you don't know." And so the press becomes your constituents and you sell out the team.

So, an item will appear in the paper tomorrow, and it'll be embarrassing to
me and embarrassing to the President. I'm not gonna have a witch hunt. I'm not gonna huff and puff. I'm not gonna take anyone's head off. I'm simply gonna say this: you're my guys.

And I'm yours... and there's nothing I wouldn't do for you."

Happy sigh

Considers renaming ds Toby. Or Sam. Or Jed.

Hopes 9yr old doesn't mind.

I want to be CJ when I grow up but MmeLindor and dd have told me they have first dibs. And let's not mention the poster who got there first with the username, is kind to me though and lets me stand at the podium sometimes.

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 01-Oct-11 10:32:32

Uh oh. Do NOT tell OliviaMumsnet there is a podium. <hides thread from MNHQ>

Fiderer Sat 01-Oct-11 11:39:27

Ahh, but OliviaMumsnet's birthday is coming up. How about a podium with the MN Logo instead of the Seal of the President as a present? Sort of like how CJ has a wee podium in Gail's bowl.
Would save MNHQ a heap on over-priced stationery and gin.

We could namechange and everything. Have a West Wing Fest. You know you want to. We have enough WW fans on here.

MapofTassie Sat 01-Oct-11 14:26:27

DH wouldn't let me call DS1 or 2 Toby, Leo or Sam. My cousin does have a DS called Charlie though.
Still laugh when I watch Miracle on 34th Street (the remake) and CJ pops up.
Would love a WW fest, have to watch the whole lot again!

Fiderer Sat 01-Oct-11 16:22:15

There was a long-running thread in Telly Addicts, two in fact. One as a "watch along" and one full of spoilers for sheer indulgence. Perhaps we should revive one.
