penache

War Crimes (3.5)
  • Charlie:How was church?
  • Bartlet:It sucked.
  • Abbey:It was fine. Stop it!
  • Bartlet:It sucked!
  • Abbey:You're talking about church!
  • Bartlet:Oh, like I'm not already going to hell.
  • Charlie:What was the problem?
  • Abbey:He feels the homily lacked panache.
  • Bartlet:It did lack penache.
  • Abbey:It was a perfectly lovely homily, on Ephesians 5:21. "Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her."
  • Bartlet:Yeah, she's skipping over the part that says, "Wives, be subject to your husbands as to the Lord, for a husband is the head of a wife as Christ is the head of the church."
  • Abbey:I do skip over that part.
  • Bartlet:Why?
  • Abbey:Because it's stupid!
