The West Wing Rewatch
: Jed Bartlet in ‘Two Cathedrals’ (2x22)

You’re a son of a bitch, you know that? She bought her first new car and you hit her with a drunk driver. What, is that supposed to be funny? “You can’t conceive, nor can I, the appalling strangeness of the mercy of God,” says Graham Greene. I don’t know whose ass he was kissing there, because I think you’re just vindictive. What was Josh Lyman, a warning shot? That was my son. What did I ever do to Yours but praise His glory, praise His name? There’s a tropical storm that’s gaining speed and power. They say we haven’t had a storm this bad since you took out that tender ship of mine in the North Atlantic last year. 68 crew - you know what a tender ship does?  It fixes the other ships - doesn’t even carry guns - it just goes around and fixes the other ships, delivers the mail - that’s all it can do.
Gratias tibi ago, domine. (I give thanks to you, O Lord.)  Yes, I lied. I committed a sin, I’ve committed many sins. Have I displeased you, you feckless thug? 3.8 million new jobs - that wasn’t good? Bailed out Mexico, increased foreign trade? 30 million new acres for conservation? Put Mendoza on the bench? We’re not fighting a war - I’ve raised three children - that’s not enough to buy me out of the doghouse?

Voyeurism is a part of cinema —looking at people — but [Linklater] appears to look with them… that’s an extraordinary thing and the film [Boyhood] is really remarkable.

I went to Columbia University because I knew I wanted to go to a school that was academically rigorous. I prided myself on getting good grades but I also hated it. I used to wonder why I was busting my ass at calculus when I was interested in the arts, but I felt that there was a relationship between working hard at school and taking your dreams seriously. I still think that if you’re excited about something, you have to work at it.
