    That's right. I'm getting into the business of eternal quote threads. Sports Night is arguably one of the best written shows of the past 10 years or ever for that matter and this thread's purpose is to honor that. While not exactly eternal (There were only 45 episodes), let's start up this baby with:

    "Natalie's my second in command. She's the only one I told.

    Jeremy's my boyfriend. He's the only one I told.

    I told many, many people"

    One of the most moving moments ever written/filmed for the small screen:

    Dan: I have a younger brother named Sam. Sam's a genius. I mean, literally. As a kid, he tested off the charts. The first computer I had, he built from a kit he bought with money he earned tutoring other kids in math. He's energetic and articulate, curious and funny, a great source of pride to our parents. And there's not doubt that he's be living a great life right now - except for that he's dead. 'Cause when you're 14 years old, all you ever really want to be when you grow up is your 16-year old brother. And in my case that meant smoking a lot of dope. The day I went off to college was the day that Sam got his driver's license. And he celebrated by taking a drive with some of his friends. Drunk, and high as a paper kite. He never saw the red light that he ran. And he probably never saw the 18-wheel truck that put him in the side of a brick bank, either.

    [very long pause]

    That was 11 years ago tonight. And I just wanted to say - I'm sorry, Sam. You deserved better in my hands. And I apologize.

    Natalie: On my entire roster of boyfriends, and it is, I might add, quite the lengthy list, you are my least favorite.

    Jeremy: Hey, I'm just happy to be on the team.

    OK, here's one of my faves. The episode is "Ordnance Tactics". Jeremy has been trying to break up with Natalie, a task at which he has been spectacularly unsuccessful. We're in the control room, 30 seconds live:

    A few that I use from time to time in everyday conversation and no-one ever knows where they come from...

    --
    DAN: "At this point, the length of this conversation is way out of proportion with my interest in it."

    --
    SAM: "You shouldn't think that just because I'm looking at you while you're talking to me, that I'm necessarily listening to or caring about what you're saying. It's just something I do to be polite. "

    --
    CASEY: "if any talking animals ask you to buy some tacos or beer--for God's sake, do what they tell you"


    Sad to say I watched nearly every episode when it originaly aired and have watched the DVD set beginning to end 5 times since I purchased it about a year ago. Hands down my favorite TV show ever and I would trade all of my current shows (Friends, Scrubs, West Wing, Ed, and 24) to have it back up and running.

    I've only watched the whole thing once, so I can't remember any quotes, but surely there must be something interesting about the choreo-animator? Better yet, her actual job?

    Sam: Just ask around. I have absolutely no conscience about these things.

    I think I have accepted the fact that Sports Night is the greatest television show ever made.
