almosthonest: (California for Obama! Yay!)

The quintessential Leo quote for me. I miss both John Spencer and The West Wing.

LEO: Andrew Jackson, in the main foyer of his White House had a big block of cheese.

TOBY: Huh.

LEO: I am making a mental list of those who are snickering, and even as I speak I am preparing appropriate retribution. The block of cheese was huge - over two tons. And it was there for any and all who might be hungry.

TOBY: Leo, wouldn't this time be better spent plotting a war against a country that can't possibly defend itself against us?

LEO: We can do that later, Toby. Right now I'm talking about President Andrew Jackson.

SAM: Actually, right now, you're talking about a big block of cheese.



And one of my favorite moments:

MAN 1: [on radio] Negative intercept. KM warhead has overshot it's target.

BARTLET: It was just enthusiastic.

LEO: By how much?

GENERAL: Uh, Leo...

LEO: [sternly] By how much did it miss the target?

GENERAL: Colonel?

COLONEL: 137.

LEO: We missed the target by 137 feet?

COLONEL: Miles.

LEO: [looks at him, incredulous] We missed it by 137 miles?!

BARTLET: When you consider the size of outer space, Leo, that's not so bad.

COLONEL: Sir?

BARTLET: By the way, the words you're looking for are "Oh good grief." [walks out]
