    It's important that you put street in there, so it doesn't get confused with Prutter Lane.

    Starts slow, but the last bit is great. (So hoping this turns into yet another thread with people posting great scene after great scene from The West Wing).

    "Every time we come to Southern California we are ABsolutely the Clampetts."

    But I always loved this scene in "Two Cathedrals."

    Sorkin does a really great job with holiday episodes as a general rule - see "Thespis", the Thanksgiving episode from season one of Sports Night - but this will always be one of my favorite exchanges between Jed and Charlie:

    Charlie: OK, Mr. President, I say this with all possible respect, but each of these knives cuts, you know, meat. Why is it important...
    President Josiah "Jed" Bartlet: 'Cause it is something we pass on. It's something with a history, so we can say, "My father gave this to me and his father gave it to him, and now I'm giving it to you."
    C: Well, OK, sir. But if that's true then why don't you already have one?
    J: I do have one.
    C: Why do you need a new one?
    J: I'm giving mine away.
    C: To who?
    J: Whom.
    C: To whom?
    J: Funny you should ask. [Reaches into his desk and takes out a package] Charlie, my father gave this to me and his father gave it to him - and now I'm giving it to you. [Hands Charlie the box] Take a look.
    C: [Opens the box]
    J: The fully tapered bolster allows for sharpening the entire edge of the blade.
    C: It says "P.R." I thought I knew them all but I don't recognize the manufacturer.
    J: This was made for my family by a Boston silversmith named Paul Revere. I'm proud of you, Charlie.
    C: Thank you, sir.

    It just got REALLY dusty in here.

    I liked when Bartlet gave Charlie his copy of the Constitution in the finale, saying he would get more use out of it than a necktie with the scales of justice on it.

    Slays me every time. Damn you, Sorkin!
