    Now that it's over I thought it would be fun to reflect on favorite scenes from this terrific show.
    I have several but I'l only name 2.
    First:
    Bartlett screaming at God in the National Cathedral at Mrs. Landingham's funeral.
    Second:
    The discussion of sexism and harrasment with Sam, Ainsley Hayes, Charlie, and the temp. Charlie's "hello" always cracks me up. Also did Ainsley ever find a decent muffin and a Fresca in the WW mess?
    :D

    So many moments. Way too many to list them all, but here are a few...

    Bartlet giving Charlie the knife at Thanksgiving.
    Danny giving CJ the goldfish.
    The whole Issac & Ishmeal episode
    Sam's line to Mallory about accidentally sleeping with a prostitute.
    The whole story line from 20 hours in America with Josh, Donna, and Toby getting left behind.


    There are many many more, but I'll save room for someone else.


    Least Favorite moment? That happened on Sunday May 14, 2006 at 8:59 PM EST.

    I loved that the goldfish was still on CJ's desk in the finale.

    Mine in no particular order:

    Bartlett yelling at God in the National Cathedral
    Ainsley dancing in her "office" and getting caught by Bartlett
    Ainsley walking into Leo's closet by mistake
    The scene when Oliver Platt fires the two guys for harrassing Ainsley
    Sam's line to Mallory about accidentally sleeping with a prostitute
    Just about any interaction between Bartlett & Charlie
    Just about any scene with Amy (Josh's girlfirend)

    Moments or episodes I will remember about each character

    POTUS- Sitting with Josh at the airport after Josh's fathers death.
    Leo- Big Block of Cheese Day
    CJ- The Jackel
    Josh and Toby- Getting left behind on the Campaign trail (Great episode)
    Donna- Flashback to how she got her job with Josh
    Sam- Playing chess with the president
    Charlie- anytime he was stuck listening to the president go on about some strange fact/story (the way the two of them interacted was some of the best moments in the show)

    People joking with Josh on voting day (Bartlett re-election) about messing up their ballots (turned out to be Toby screwing with Josh)

    Toby's day at the protest with the officer assigned to protect him. Classic Toby.

    Bartlett yelling at God...

    Bartlett's interation with Ainsley "They won't let me smoke in the White House, but she can go to the bathroom in your closet"

    Josh & Donna finally kissing

    Bartlett calling 1-800-Butterball and having to convince the person that he actually was the PotUS

    I thought Bartlett called butterball and put on a fake persona.

    Bartlett giving Charlie the Paul Revere knife.
    Bartlett calling Donna's old teacher.
    From the first show: when Bartlett walks in the room quoting the first commandment.

    And wasn't it Sam that fired the two sexual harrassers?

    Sam, yes, but with the support of John Larroquette, not Oliver Platt.

    Count me among those who loved the scene with Bartlett yelling at God, but I thought the entire final 15 minutes of that episode were classic storymaking.

    Some more:

    --Charlie being schooled by the conservative Supreme Court justice nominee on Affirmative Action.
    --Bartlett and Josh taking a walk during the budget shutdown

    There are others that have already been mentioned.

    One of my favorite scenes was when they Chinese immigrants were trying to get to America and they brougt the one into the White House so Bartlett could "judge" whether they were real and he said Shibboleth. Then Bartlett talks about them going missing.
