[Sad] West Wing Makes Me Cry

I took a break from Japanese tonight in order to watch West Wing, which recently suffered a heavy loss.

This particular episode, filmed months before John's death, had a few unintentionally tear-jerking lines.

Toby: (on phone to Josh) Is somebody dead?


Josh: It's Leo.
Toby: He'll survive, too.


Josh: (after an inappropriate joke) Too soon? (This is exactly what I said after I made an inappropriate joke upon hearing the news about John. Its only relevance is as a personal reminder of the grief)


Leo: By an overwhelming percentage, the first warning sign of a heart attack is death. I'm fortunate to be here, but it wasn't all luck.


Leo: We want every man, woman, and child in this country to have full and equal access to the first-class treatment that I firmly believe saved my life.

This Phoenix is an even sadder Phoenix.
