Today requires a double dose of Ziegler.

17. A scene that made you laugh so much that your stomach hurt. 

I tried to find the bit at the end of “Inauguration 2” with the snowballs because it is just SO adorable, but I wouldn’t find it. So I went with this old stanby, which is no less valid and hilarious. I’m seriously thinking about getting a dog.

14. Best moment of your favorite male character. (part 2)

Screw it, it’s Thanksgiving, so I’m posting again, to represent Toby, in his part of the comedy stylings of Bartlet and Ziegler, from “The Indians In The Lobby”. (btw, it turns out that the Butterball Hotline is a real thing, and I came THIS close to calling them this year, on principle)

5. Second favorite episode.

"Evidence of Things Not Seen".

Mostly because this challenge doesn’t contain a “favourite BroTP” question, and I love CJ and Toby’s interaction in this SO much.

Also, I’m saving S2 for future days.

2. Favorite male character.

Let me state right off the bat that there isn’t a single one that I don’t LOVE. And there’s no way I can pick just one, and also that President Bartlet is in a class by himself.

That said, these are my two favourite guys - 

WITH CAT-LIKE TREAD (obvious Penzance reference, Aaron? Yeahh.)

The West Wing 1.2
Toby: Sarcasm's a disturbing thing coming from a woman of your age, Mrs Landingham.
Mrs Landingham: And what age would that be, Toby?
Toby: Late twenties.
Mrs Landingham: Atta boy.
Toby: Can I have a cookie?
Mrs Landingham: No.
Sam: Toby? They turned down our request?
Toby: CJ's on it.
Mrs Landingham: Good morning, Sam.
Sam: Good morning.
Mrs Landingham: Have a cookie, Sam.

Time for a rewatch, I think...
Congressman 1: Josh, we're very concerned about the effect that the flow of cheaper goods into this country will have on American labor and American manufacturing. We're very concerned about a lack of environmental controls.
Congressman 2: Concerns which are entirely reasonable.
Toby: You're concerned about American labor and manufacturing?
Congressman 1: yeah
Toby: What kind of car do you drive?
Congressman 1: A Toyota.
Toby: Then shut up.

And tiny Lojacks.
