If you’re a West Wing obsessive as I am, you’ll like this: A promotional short made in the summer of 1999 as an introduction to the show. Notably, they’re in the middle of shooting “Five Votes Down” and the show is still being marketed as: starring Martin Sheen, Rob Lowe … and some other people we aren’t mentioning by name.

INT. CLARISSA’S APARTMENT. NIGHT.

SALLY comes into the room to find CLARISSA sitting on the side of the bed in her coat. The two women look at each other. SALLY comes round and gestures to CLARISSA to stand up. SALLY puts her hands on CLARISSA’S shoulders to help her take off the coat. As she does, CLARISSA turns and looks at SALLY, the two of them overcome. The two women look warmly at each other, then they kiss.
