This guy’s walking down a street, when he falls in a hole. The walls are so steep, he can’t get out. A doctor passes by, and the guy shouts up “Hey you! Can you help me out?” The doctor writes him a prescription, throws it down the hole and moves on. Then a priest comes along and the guy shouts up “Father, I’m down in this hole, can you help me out?” The priest writes out a prayer, throws it down in the hole and moves on. Then a friend walks by. “Hey Joe, it’s me, can you help me out?” And the friend jumps in the hole! Our guy says “Are you stupid? Now we’re both down here!” and the friend says, “Yeah, but I’ve been down here before, and I know the way out.” - The West Wing Season 2.

SORKIN - Up until the pilot aired, no one knew that the abbreviation for President of the United States was POTUS. Sam says it at the beginning.

WHITFORD - I thought it was some sort of sexual euphemism.

SHEEN - I said, ”I don’t really know how you want me to play this — and who is this guy, Jed Bartlet?” Aaron said, ”He’s you, Martin. You don’t have to go anywhere. You just have to go inside.” That’s what I did.

MOLONEY - During my first scene, Leo comes in and asks for Josh, so I turn around and scream ”Josh!” without getting up from my chair. Leo replies, ”I could have done that, Donna.” We did a couple of takes, and afterwards John said, ”You’re going to be here until the curtain comes down. ” He was the first person to say that.

SCHIFF - I had to recite all this aeronautical nomenclature to the stewardess on a plane after she told me to shut off my cell phone. It was the beginning of a tradition of both drinking in Allison’s trailer and being ambushed with a four-page monologue that you’d have to shoot that day after lunch.

JANNEY - Martin was always eating. I think he took the job for craft services, because he always had food in his mouth while they were trying to shoot.

oh, there’s more.

If you combine the populations of Great Britain, France, Germany, Japan, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark and Australia, you’ll get a population roughly the size of the United States. We had 32,000 gun deaths last year, they had 112. Do you think it’s because Americans are more homicidal by nature? Or do you think it’s because those guys have gun control laws?
