    This is the best episode of the best series on television. Ever. I just re-watched it and it has lost nothing in the few years that have passed. The superb quality of the writing in this episode was even more pronounced after this past week's crop of contrived and hackneyed season finales on the various networks. There is a way to use car accidents and there's a way to make dramatic television in a way that does not come across as forced and revisited for the umpteenth time. And Sorkin is the master. Plus who else would put a whole speech in Latin in prime time?
