Don't y'all miss the time when I only ever posted once in a blue moon...  
When you see this on your flist, quote The West Wing.

Give me some credit, I ignored this the first three times it appeared. But West Wing and quotes!!! I am powerless to resist. Also I feel I don't give President Bartlet enough love.

President Bartlet: Good. I like your show. I like how you call homosexuality an abomination.
Dr. Jacobs: I don't say homosexuality is an abomination, Mr. President. The Bible does.
President Bartlet: Yes it does. Leviticus.
Dr. Jacobs: 18:22.
President Bartlet: Chapter and verse. I wanted to ask you a couple of questions while I have you here. I'm interested in selling my youngest daughter into slavery as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. She's a Georgetown sophomore, speaks fluent Italian, always cleared the table when it was her turn. What would a good price for her be? While thinking about that, can I ask another? My Chief of Staff Leo McGarry insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly says he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself or is it okay to call the police? Here's one that's really important because we've got a lot of sports fans in this town: touching the skin of a dead pig makes one unclean. Leviticus 11:7. If they promise to wear gloves, can the Washington Redskins still play football? Can Notre Dame? Can West Point? Does the whole town really have to be together to stone my brother John for planting different crops side by side? Can I burn my mother in a small family gathering for wearing garments made from two different threads? Think about those questions, would you? One last thing: while you may be mistaking this for your monthly meeting of the Ignorant Tight-Ass Club, in this building, when the President stands, nobody sits.

Josh: You're quite a nerd, Mr. President.
President Bartlet: Really?
Josh: Yes, sir.
President Bartlet: I assume that was said with all due respect?
Josh: Yes, sir.

President Bartlet: I was watching a television program before, with a kind of roving moderator who spoke to a seated panel of young women who were having some sort of problem with their boyfriends - apparently, because the boyfriends had all slept with the girlfriends' mothers. And they brought the boyfriends out, and they fought, right there on television. Toby, tell me, these people don't vote, do they?

President Bartlet: I was wrong. I was, I was just... I was wrong. Come on, we know that. Lots of times we don't know what right or wrong is, but lots of times we do, and come on... this is one. I may not have had sinister intent at the outset, but there were plenty of opportunities for me to make it right. No one in government takes responsibility for anything any more, we fuster, we obfuscate, we rationalize. "Everybody does it", that's what we say. So we come to occupy a moral safe house where everyone's to blame, so no one's guilty. [pause] I'm to blame. I was wrong.

President Bartlet: "We hold these truths to be self-evident," they said, "that all men are created equal." Strange as it may seem, that was the first time in history that anyone had ever bothered to write that down. Decisions are made by those who show up.

Summarize ten of your fandoms in one sentence, then see who on your friends list can guess these fandoms!
1. Nancy Drew, eat your heart out. Veronica Mars, guessed by ellieptical and rosewildeirish.

4. Space cowboys. Firefly. Guessed by ellieptical, fanboy_of_zeus and shippygem.

5. It's only like CSI if you're dyslexic. NCIS. Guessed by ellieptical, rosewildeirish, nakeisha and shippygem.

6. CSI Cardiff Torchwood. Guessed by ellieptical, rosewildeirish and shippygem.

7. You think your family has problems? Supernatural. Guessed by nakeisha.

8. Genetically engineered ass-kicker Dark Angel. Guessed by ellieptical, rosewildeirish and shippygem.

9. Geek love, no better kind. Numb3rs. Guessed by nakeisha and fanboy_of_zeus.

Nikki: Gibbs/Ducky (Watching You)nakeisha on November 15th, 2006 05:07 pm (UTC)


Thank you.

I'm impressed :-)

I really like this 'meme', and am trying to think of 'summing ups' for my fandoms/tv shows I like. (I'm not getting very far; I might ask hubby, he's good at that kind of thing).
Maria: carson happy placeria_kukalaka on November 15th, 2006 05:15 pm (UTC)
Great, I look forward to attempting it *g*
Nikki: NH Love Is...nakeisha on November 16th, 2006 01:47 pm (UTC)

Damianfanboy_of_zeus on November 15th, 2006 01:37 pm (UTC)
Or 2 could be DS9. I'm really not sure on that.
Maria: i like you moreria_kukalaka on November 15th, 2006 04:59 pm (UTC)
Yep, DS9 is what I was thinking.
Maria: h/w  marry meria_kukalaka on November 15th, 2006 04:58 pm (UTC)
Firefly, Numb3rs, Atlantis are all good. Of course we all know that House is gay so technically House should be right too ;)

Chesterfield Snapdragon McFistycuffsshippygem on November 15th, 2006 05:03 pm (UTC)

Maria: capt jackria_kukalaka on November 15th, 2006 05:15 pm (UTC)
LOL, i think a lot of my clues were pretty vague and applicable to a lot of shows :p

P.S Did you see the JB music?
Chesterfield Snapdragon McFistycuffsshippygem on November 15th, 2006 05:59 pm (UTC)
..noo....you posted it?

Maria: Capt Jack - pleaseria_kukalaka on November 15th, 2006 09:26 pm (UTC)

I posted a comment in the other thread, but I guess LJ's being wacky again! *sighs*
Broken Mnemonic: SO CUTEimagechild on November 15th, 2006 08:07 pm (UTC)
eeeee do I get to do 3, do I do I?!!?


*dance dance dance*

yaay I win at gay doctors!!!
Maria: navin chowdhryria_kukalaka on November 15th, 2006 09:28 pm (UTC)

you spelt it WRONG! :p

*keeps Mani all for herself*

Also you deserve no special title. I shall call you. "Ms. Can't Even Spell the Name of the Show with a VERY Hot Gay Doctor." Although my fingers may get tired, so I think I will shorten it to Hope.
Broken Mnemonicimagechild on November 15th, 2006 10:03 pm (UTC)

Because in real life, there is no word "sincronicity"....it's spelled "sync" so I'm only guilty of being able to spell *nod*


~small hug~

Broken Mnemonic: leavesimagechild on November 15th, 2006 08:08 pm (UTC)
and I should totally get to have a title or something. POTUS, I think. yes. POTUS indeed.

GreenKey: fandom - jack/who snoggreen_key on November 15th, 2006 10:57 pm (UTC)
3 has to be Torchwood. *g*
Maria: navin chowdhryria_kukalaka on November 16th, 2006 08:01 am (UTC)
LOL! That would be a pretty cool Torchwood description ;) but it's actually Sinchronicity, a little known about BBC show.
