When you see this, quote Leo McGarry
...like every year on December 16.
: 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 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." Margaret
: Can - can I just say something, you know, for the future? Leo McGarry
: Yeah. Margaret
: *I* can sign the President's name. I have his signature down pretty good. Leo McGarry
: You can sign the President's name? Margaret
: Yeah. Leo McGarry
: On a document removing him from power and handing it to someone else? Margaret
: Yeah. Or, do you think the White House Counsel would say that was a bad idea? Leo McGarry
: I think the White House Counsel would say that's a coup d'etat. Margaret
: I'd probably end up doing some time for that. Leo McGarry
: I would think. And what the hell are you doing practicing the President's signature? Margaret
: It's just for fun. Leo McGarry
: We've got separation of powers, checks and balances, and Margaret, vetoing things and sending them back to the hill.
