    Great job. I was wondering what you were doing no that IPS had wrapped.

    Thanks, all. It was a blast to write and work on, and working with the cast was a little like a baseball fantasy camp. The shout-out on Lawrence O'Donnell was shocking to me, and very exciting for my family (and agent).

    Now let's get back on the winning track this week. Go. Pats.

    Not all that late! And keep telling people about it -- we're almost to half a million hits on YouTube!

    Nicely done! Kudos to you for some excellent writing chops.

    I, too, am already missing IPS, but these things happen. :(

    I never cared for the politics of West Wing, but I always respected the talent from both actors and writers. It was tight with very few hanging threads, and that's something that very hard to do in any production, whether film, TV or stage.

    Nice to see it still works for this. :rocker:

    Great job with this. I liked that you snuck in the "Apocalypse Now" line for Sheen.

    Thanks, Koma, I basically structured the scene -- and earlier scenes with Josh Lyman -- all around that and I think it was REALLY helped by the director and actors in the half-beat right after the line. It had been part of a larger "runner" (a continuing thread of the same, or the same KIND, of joke) where other cast members' resumes were referenced. But in the end we had to cut the script down and stuff like that is the first to go. The Apocalypse Now reference had to stay, though. Martin was a great sport about it.

    P.S. Up to 800,00+ views! ;)
