Meme shameless stolen from shippygem  
Name a character from one of my fandoms, and I will tell you my top 3 moments or scenes (or at least 3 of my favorites) of them.

My Fandoms: SGA, SG-1, Trek (not TOS - i like it, but probably not enough to pick fave moments), BtVS, AtS, Numb3rs, Firefly/Serenity, Dr. Who, ER, House M.D., Lost, The West Wing. There must be others. Pick a character, any character. *g*

Leo from WW.

Oooh Leo *hugs*

Let Bartlet Be Bartlet - At the end, after he's finished chewing out President Bartlet and writes that on the pad. Of course the backstory that goes with it. And the speech that goes with it.
"If we're going to walk into walls I want us running into them full speed. We're going to lose some of these battles, and we might even lose the White House, but we're not going to be threatened by issues. We're going to bring 'em front and center. We're going to raise the level of public debate in this country, and let that be our legacy."

"This guy's walking down the 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 a prescription, throws it down in 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.' The friend says, 'Yeah, but I've been down here before and I know the way out.'" I love how Leo can be a friend and a mentor and just a decent human being. Sort of related is when Josh hugs him after they've had a talk and he just teases him back. That's also very cute.

And I think possibly my favourite Leo moment is from He Shall From Time to Time when the President is talking to Roger, the security of agriculture and Leo is listening in from the next room. I could just hug them both, so much.
Do you have a best friend?
Yes, sir.
Is he smarter than you?
Yes, sir.
Would you trust him with your life?
Yes, Sir!
That's your Chief of Staff.

John Spencer was such a great actor. It's a real pity to lose him.

*hates self for having no Leo icons*

It's gotta be Rodney to start off. *g*
Maria: rodney tragedyria_kukalaka on May 10th, 2006 08:20 pm (UTC)
Rodney's really difficult 'cause there are so many. I might have to cheat a little.

  • Almost everything from GUP. But especially when he calls the 'jumper a lemon.
  • The 'leadership' bits from the beginning of Hotzone (and since we're in the vincity can we throw in Prime-Not Prime) and Letters from Pegasus.
  • All the times he attempts flirting...with a woman *g* Allina from Brotherhood, Katie Brown in Duet, The Wraith in Aurora!, Norina in Inferno.

    See that was like 3. *nods*

    Weir! Mhahahahaha!

    (omg, i have a weir icon!!!)
    Maria: SGA rise togetherria_kukalaka on May 10th, 2006 08:26 pm (UTC)

  • In 38 minutes, she shut up when Radek told her too.
  • She was pretty damn cool in The Long Goodbye well until the end when they let her have her body back.
  • Playing solitaire
  • Sarahmorganmuffle on May 10th, 2006 08:27 pm (UTC)

    He keeps smiling at me from your icon and distracting me!
    Sarahmorganmuffle on May 10th, 2006 08:33 pm (UTC)

    I can't believe I got that wrong *hides under rock*
    Maria: brains over brawnria_kukalaka on May 10th, 2006 10:30 pm (UTC)
    Awww don't worry, I didn't even notice. Well until you pointed it out, so now I can point and laugh. Hahaha! *g*

    Julian - damn another difficult one.

  • Dr. Bashir, I presume - "The word you are looking for is unnatural, meaning not from nature. Freak or monster would also be acceptable." I challenge anyone to not go 'awwwww'.

  • Our Man Bashir - Well all of it. I mean Tux! But the teasing Garak and the saving the day by destroying the world :D

  • Quickening - "There's no cure for the Blight. The Dominion made sure of that. And I was so arrogant I thought I could cure it in a week." - His arrogance getting shattered, but then he sticks around and keeps trying and gets back to DS9 and keeps trying *hearts him* Plus Kukalaka :D

    Ok those were the first three I thought of and now this is going to stay with me all night and I'll keep thinking of others and hate myself for not picking them and get no sleep and it shall all be your fault :D

    Trek, you say? Hrm. Q.
    Maria: starshipsria_kukalaka on May 10th, 2006 10:44 pm (UTC)
    Oooh Q is fun :D

  • Tapestry
    Picard: I refuse to believe that this is the afterlife, and that you are God. The universe is not so poorly designed!
    Q: Blasphemy! You're lucky I don't strike you down or smite you or something.

  • Q-Less
    Q: You hit me! Picard would never have hit me
    Sisko: I'm not Picard
    Q: Indeed not. You're much easier to provoke.

  • The Q and the Grey - where's he's flirting with Janeway.

    This way we get one from each series :D And I did used to have a Q icon, don't know what I did with it. *tuts*
  • DKdk_valentine on May 10th, 2006 11:31 pm (UTC)
    Ooh, yeah...second one's one of my absolute favorites too...never saw much of the stuff with him in Voyager, though.

    Josh Lyman from the West Wing and/or Zelenka!
    Maria: josh - good copria_kukalaka on May 11th, 2006 09:12 am (UTC)

  • Points to icon. I'm a bit of a Josh/Donna shipper...actually kind of a lot. *hides from rapid slashers* And that moment just before the ball, when they're all gathered under Donna's window and Josh is trying to be romantic just melts me everytime. Also I love *everyone* else in this scene too. Charlie obsessing over Zoe, Toby looking bemused (as always), Will just completely confused. *g*

  • Is it cheating to use 'a man fell in a hole' bit again :D Josh's version from Bartlet for America. I really, really like the beautiful, sort of paternal but mutually supportive relationship that Leo and Josh had.

  • "What in God's name is happening right now?" - The first time he meets Joey Lucas, she walks into his office with Kenny and he's hung over and totally confused. Just 'cause it's funny really. :D
  • Katie: SGA: Shep - WWSDkaaatie on May 11th, 2006 11:09 am (UTC)
    Oh Josh! I just love Josh! (note to self - find more Josh icons)

    I'm actually a John/Donna shipper myself! They're obviously so into each other!

    I've only been watching the west wing for a little while, and I watched that episode under Donna's window only a couple of days ago. They were all very cute - and I loved Joshs comment about how the rest of them had all missed the window, and it was only him that had hit it... and then he finally actually notices her - and mentions that she looks great! :D

    And Josh being yelled at by Joey Lucas was brilliant too!

    There are just so many great Josh moments! :D

    Since you like Atlantis and The West Wing you might be interested in this community: west_gate - its a crossover community. I only found out about it yesterday, and haven't had a chance to look yet, but it sounds interesting...
    Maria: stop talking pleaseria_kukalaka on May 11th, 2006 09:36 am (UTC)
    Oops forgot about my darling Radek. *smacks self*

  • His first appearance in 38 minutes when he tells Weir to "stop talking, please" and follows it on with that cute little smile. Demonstrating that he can be as abrupt as Rodney, especially when working, but everyone loves him anyway 'cause he's such a sweetie.

  • Siege I - "I think I should go". He realises the mission is likely to be difficult and volunteers to go in McKay's place! Awwww. In GUP we find out that he's afraid of flying, making this all the more poignant. He'd fly 14 hours each way to undertake a potential fatal mission so Rodney doesn't have to. *no comment, make up your own minds people.* :D

  • Trinity - "I don’t think it matters how much of a cake you walk on." Just 'cause cute! *squees* Plus then the conversation gets all angst filled and I love it when he gets mad. *hearts him* Also HE WAS RIGHT! Rodney was wrong and Radek was right!!! *does special Radek was right dance*

  • Grace Under Pressure - All of it. Especially: The beginning, he's been sitting there trying to get through to Rodney for over an hour. Which surely doesn't require the city's top engineer. :D
    The "Oh no, no, no, no, no" but then goes anyway, because it's Rodney!
    The total lack of unenthusiasm over the "sea monster".
    The concern and holding at the end.

    That was like three. I've always been really bad at maths.
  • Katie: SGA: Zelenkakaaatie on May 11th, 2006 11:18 am (UTC)
    Zelenka is such a sweetie! The 38 minutes moment *points to your icon* is my favourite Zelenka moment!

    I also love all of the banter/conversations between them in the Storm (I'm pretty sure its the storm). The bit when he tells Rodney, "you're not pleasant when you're like this, McKay" - then when Rodney says hes always like that he says "my point exactly"!! Then later in the episode I love when they're finishing each others sentences trying to explain the lightning idea! :D

    And as you said, I love that he's still concerned for Rodney, even though he knows Rodney is just a jerk!
