Josh: Think it over on the plane. Not that I’m… begging.
Sam: I don’t think you’re begging.
Josh: Would that work? I can do begging. Humiliation is not beneath me. Just get on a plane! Nothing’s irrevocable. If you hate it they have return flights. Don’t make me wait; they’re going… going to find me in a fetal position sucking my thumb.
Sam: Okay I think we’ve moved into begging.
Josh: I told you I have no threshold of embarrassment here. I’m prepared to abase myself until you submit.
Sam: I’m going to need time to think about this.
Josh: Fine… You done yet?
Josh: What’s there to think about?
Sam: Well, for one thing, whether I want to end up looking like you.
Leo: Listen up. Our ground game isn’t working; we’re gonna put the ball in the air. If we’re gonna walk into walls, I want us running into them full-speed.
Josh: What are you saying?
Leo: Well, you can start by telling the Hill the President’s named his nominees to the FEC. And we’re gonna lose some of these battles. And we might even lose the White House. But we’re not going to be threatened by issues: we’re going to put ‘em front and center. We’re gonna raise raise the level of public debate in this country, and let that be our legacy. That sound alright to you Josh?
Josh: I serve at the pleasure of the President of the United States.
CJ: I serve at the pleasure of the President.

Toby: I serve at the pleasure of the President.
