When the President Stands, Nobody Sits

"If politics brings out the worst in people, then maybe people bring out the best."- CJ Cregg

SORKIN - Up until the pilot aired, no one knew that the abbreviation for President of the United States was POTUS. Sam says it at the beginning.

WHITFORD I thought it was some sort of sexual euphemism.

SHEEN - I said, ”I don’t really know how you want me to play this — and who is this guy, Jed Bartlet?” Aaron said, ”He’s you, Martin. You don’t have to go anywhere. You just have to go inside.” That’s what I did.

MOLONEY - During my first scene, Leo comes in and asks for Josh, so I turn around and scream ”Josh!” without getting up from my chair. Leo replies, ”I could have done that, Donna.” We did a couple of takes, and afterwards John said, ”You’re going to be here until the curtain comes down. ” He was the first person to say that.

SCHIFF - I had to recite all this aeronautical nomenclature to the stewardess on a plane after she told me to shut off my cell phone. It was the beginning of a tradition of both drinking in Allison’s trailer and being ambushed with a four-page monologue that you’d have to shoot that day after lunch.

JANNEY - Martin was always eating. I think he took the job for craft services, because he always had food in his mouth while they were trying to shoot.

oh, there’s more.

Josh: You’re going to this meeting?
Sam: Yeah.
Josh: WW-160. You been able to find it?
