Listen: Josh, Mathers Mathers, Diane Maters discussed on The West Wing Weekly
"Imagine not doing the easiest most fun part of the job. Awarded cool people that you want to meet as I guess, how can you give Ted Nugent how many awards? Then who are you going to bring in to cover is wrong? I guess you figure if you can't get anybody to show up now. All right. So this episode begins with points on TV he's lying, and he's he's promoting full disclosure, and he's being interviewed by Diane maters. Do you all remember Diane may there's we've met her before? That's right. She's interviewed Zoe Bartlett. You're not wrong. May there's Mathers Mathers made. It doesn't matter. You can I don't care point says he's just there to promote his book. But then he does in fact, tell her this and yes, Diana. I would like to return to public life. I think I can make a contribution. So he's, you know, tacitly implying that he's going to run for president. That's kind of announcement, even though he's saying he's not going to his book is just come out promoting the book, he's on TV somehow, they're watching the TV. But then he's also on the phone for CJ. And then one scene later he's in a car with Josh. The point is he's making moves. He's really he's busy. He's got like a superpower can beam himself anywhere. And he sent Josh a copy of his book with an inscription on the front that says time to lead. So then when Josh gets into the car in this like shady dark scene, he gets into this mysterious car, and he says, I have no idea why I'm here despite that inscription and. And then says yes, you do. And then I think that he must have played Josh clip from season one saying this some Josh. I wonder if I listen to you two years. Would I be president? Ever wonder that? No, sir. I know for sure. A heavy breathing in that scene. Say Brad, and Tim Athens. Maybe not in the greatest of shape. I think they were about sitting. He says, I don't know I'm here and vice president says formed vice president says yes, you do. And then were just kind of leaves it hanging in. Then we go to the titles. It's kind of a nonsol-. That's true. And that's how we get into this episode. Feigned enthusiasm. You took time away from me in the credits. We I know. I'm sorry. I mean, welcome to the credits. Don't get me wrong. But you cut into my time. I'm sorry. But then we dated boiler alerts spoilers. Seems like these people know. I know we've so we're like three years doing the podcast, and we still have this ridiculous approach. I haven't seen all the episodes. Yeah. Exactly. Well, we don't want to spoil it for Ritchie. But it used to be worried about the listeners. But is there anybody here who hasn't seen every episode of the west wing get out get out interesting? Are you up to this episode specifically? Oh, sorry. Okay. Well, then we'll try. I mean, clearly the chemistry was already there. If you're not feeling wafting this age.."
