Day 09 - Best scene ever

Let's face it, to pick just one scene is impossible, so let's just pick one scene that never fails to crack me up. Yes, it's from The West Wing again – let's face it, I've put several TWW videos in the past few days, and I love all those scenes, so here is a new one: remember Ainsley Hayes? I love her "conversation style" in this scene with Leo:

And because I couldn't find a video of it, it doesn't really count, but I love this little scene between C.J. and the President (greedydancer will know what I'm talking about):
Bartlet: Were we talking about something?
CJ: I don't know sir, when I came in here - back in the late 50's - there was a purpose to it but then one thing led to another and I blacked out. I mean, I can hang in there with the best of them, sir but somewhere during the conversation about anise and coriander and the other fifteen spices you like to use to baste a turkey I simply lost consciousness.
Bartlet: You know that line you're not supposed to cross with the President?
CJ: I'm coming up to it?
Bartlet: No, no, look behind you.

"When I was young, I was a Young Republican!" lol

I do know which scene you're talking about! I love the scene where Bartlett is on meds and half delirious. And omg, the Jackal!!!

The meds ("Toby's a nice name") and the jackal - two classics! I just wanted to start posting a vid that did not have CJ or Josh, because some might think I was obsessed lol

I've just finished watching the last of the Midsomer Murders seasons that are out on DVD, and was feeling bereft; not knowing what to watch next. Maybe it's time for The West Wing....

(I'm also wondering what to read next. I finished the last Stieg Larsson a week ago yesterday, and went to see the movie a second time last Saturday.)

Ooooh I love Midsomer Murders!

How did you like the third Millenium book? I couldn't finish it - no time, and I have to admit that I kinda lost interest. I started the Sookie Stackhouse novels - I like it (it's a very easy read, I admit lol)

I didn't know you were a Midsomer fan! I want to move to every village I see in the show, lol! There's always at least one house I'm drooling over.

My only real complaint about the third book was that he ignored the Section for too long. Surely they should have noticed that something was going on as all the various law enforcement groups started circling around them.

You'll have to go back to the book at some point if only to read Lisbeth's trial. Annika Giannini is very definitely a force to be reckoned with (you want to stand up and cheer as she absolutely demolishes a witness in court).

Yup, it was a ritual with my family actually - one of those shows around which the four of us would gather... Aaaah good memories. Now I want to watch it again - quick, to the library! *g*

I know, right?! Of course, each of those house could host a murderer, but still - crumpets and tea and stones and lovely gardens! Plus, now that I watch it in English (I used to watch it on French tv, dubbed in French), I have to say: hello British accents!

Alright, I'll put my name back on the holds list - I'll get it when I get it *g*
