NBC (ended 2006)
|The absolute funniest moment for me is episode 14 of sesaon 1 ("Take this sabbath day"), when Josh lies drunk in his office after having been at a bachelor party the previous day...|
I just skimmed this thread, but didn't see this mentioned. When Jed takes 2 types of painkillers for his back and is high when trying to sort out Toby's stock problems.
That scene is absolutely hilarious.
Jed: "I'm seriously considering getting a dog"
Leo: "Well, feel better Mr President."
Classic moment! Not the best moment of the series, but certainly the first classic comedic of the entire run!
Here's another one from the very end of the series... when Josh tries to get Sam back to the White House.
"I can do begging. Humiliation is not beneath me. I'm prepared to debase myself until you submit. Just get on a plane! Nothing's irrevocable. If you hate it, they have return flights. Don't make me wait, they're gonna find me in a fetal position, sucking my thumb."
|For me the funniest episode and its Toby involved is when he is made to go to write the eulogy for President Lassiter. The build up where he is going on about the ex-cabinet members (on the phone to Josh). Then when he hits the bottle and sings whilst talking to Donna on the phone from the aeroplane, It really cracks me up.|
Lastly, I love when Ainsley Hayes met the President when she was dancing around in her office in a bathrobe because she'd sat in paint; When she goes to meet him again, she gets nervous beforehand and asks Leo if she can use his bathroom, and proceeds to walk into a closet, only to have the President call her out of it.
And the President's reply - "They won't let me smoke in the building and you get to pee in Leo's closet"
Ooh, and here's another Bartlet on the phone:
"There are BIG signs, you CAN'T park there! They should get towed! I hope they get towed to Queens and the Triboro's closed and there's a big crafts show at Shea, a flea market, or a tractor show!"
