"The West Wing: Institutional Memory (#7.21)" (2006)
Danny Concannon: [to C.J] I want you to do what you want to do - take the job at the White House. I just want you to talk to me about it. I want us to talk about what it will mean and we'll make it work. I want us to talk like we're gonna figure it out together. I want us to talk... because I like the sound of your voice. I just want to talk.

Danny Concannon: [to C.J] At some point you have to choose to have a relationship. We're not 25 any more. At our age you can't date a little and screw a little and wait around to see if you get sentimental at Christmas. You have to decide you're gonna make another person a part of your life - a partner.

Claudia Jean 'C.J.' Cregg: You make it sound like I'm trying to avoid you.
Danny Concannon: I didn't say that.
Claudia Jean 'C.J.' Cregg: I don't make booty calls.
Danny Concannon: You don't make any calls, kind of how it works out.
Claudia Jean 'C.J.' Cregg: What?
Danny Concannon: You're elusive, part of the draw.

Claudia Jean 'C.J.' Cregg: What made you think you should be making decisions about my career?
Danny Concannon: One, I'm not trying to make them, I'm trying to be part of a conversation about them and two, if we don't have that kind of relationship, what kind do we have?
Claudia Jean 'C.J.' Cregg: I don't... I don't want to answer that question right now. We agreed to discuss this after the inauguration.
Danny Concannon: Not if you're working for Matt Santos we're not.
Claudia Jean 'C.J.' Cregg: You know what...
Danny Concannon: First hundred days, agenda settings, first State of the Union, "talk to me after we release the budget," summit at Tashkent. What else?

Claudia Jean 'C.J.' Cregg: I don't have time for this right now.
Danny Concannon: Yes you do. I called Margaret before I came by, I'm not a moron. I called and you have twenty minutes. Hell you have an hour. You're not the busiest girl in America. That's not your life anymore... Look, I'm not trying to turn you into Doris Day. I know if we have a future together, I'd be Mr. C.J. Cregg, that's fine. But you don't even see me in the picture do you?

Claudia Jean 'C.J.' Cregg: I missed the window. That's what's going on here. I... missed the window to figure out... how to do this.
Danny Concannon: How to...?
Claudia Jean 'C.J.' Cregg: Share my life with another person, how to be a partner or whatever condescending way you put it this afternoon.
Danny Concannon: Oh, I wasn't trying...
Claudia Jean 'C.J.' Cregg: I don't know how to do it. Maybe at one point I did, maybe I never did, but it's over now. It's too late. This and skiing. It's too late, it's not going to happen.
Danny Concannon: C.J...
Claudia Jean 'C.J.' Cregg: You said yourself, it's not an accident that this hasn't come together. This is who I am. I'm good at my job, Danny, I'm good at working, I'm not good at this.
Danny Concannon: You're right, you suck at it. You're going to need a tremendous amount of training.

Danny Concannon: We're going to get good at new things.
Claudia Jean 'C.J.' Cregg: You don't know that.
Danny Concannon: I do.
Claudia Jean 'C.J.' Cregg: Don't make it sound like it's nothing.
Danny Concannon: You didn't miss it.
Claudia Jean 'C.J.' Cregg: What if I did?
Danny Concannon: You didn't miss it.
Claudia Jean 'C.J.' Cregg: What if we can't...
Danny Concannon: We'll figure it out. All of it. You can be scared. That's okay. But you're not going to walk away from me because you're scared. I'm not that scary.


"The West Wing: Celestial Navigation (#1.15)" (2000)
Danny Concannon: [Josh is about to do a press briefing when Danny approaches him] You're not gonna do this.

Danny Concannon: You're not gonna do this.
Josh Lyman: I talk to reporters all the time.
Danny Concannon: You really don't want to do this.
Josh Lyman: Let me tell you something, mi compadre. You guys have been coddled. I'm not your girlfriend, I'm not your camp counselor, and I'm not your sixth-grade teacher you had a crush on. I'm a graduate of Harvard and Yale and I believe that my powers of debate can rise to meet the Socratic wonder that is the White House press corps.
[heads to the podium]
Danny Concannon: Okey-dokey.

Danny Concannon: [At a press conference] Is the reason you won't tell us about it that it's a secret?

C.J. Cregg: That'll come down to what it always comes down to.
Danny Concannon: What's that?
C.J. Cregg: How dirty do my feet have to get without disappearing into the mud in order to get an inch of what I really want done.

Danny Concannon: We're both about to fall off a cliff. And I don't know what I'm gonna do with the rest of my life, except I know what I don't wanna do. And on Inauguration Day, you're going to be released from that glorious prison on Pennsylvania Avenue, with...
C.J. Cregg: No human skills?
Danny Concannon: Seems to me...
C.J. Cregg: I should punch you in the face.
Danny Concannon: That's what I'm talking about.
C.J. Cregg: Keep going...
Danny Concannon: So, if I'm gonna jump off the cliff, and you're gonna get pushed off the cliff, why don't we hold hands on the way down?

C.J. Cregg: Men are like salmon. Swimming upstream, hosing down the riverbed with their indiscriminate seed...
Danny Concannon: Indiscriminate seed?
C.J. Cregg: Until...
Danny Concannon: Did you just say "indiscriminate seed"?
C.J. Cregg: Until they die, bloated and spent, belly-up in the sun.
Danny Concannon: Oh, quit sweet-talkin' me, baby.

Charlie Young: Not really, but my love for her knows no bounds.
Danny Concannon: Charlie, aren't you cold without a coat?
Charlie Young: I took off my coat to show my love for Zoey.
Danny Concannon: Wow.
Charlie Young: I'd take off my shirt too, but it's inappropriate with a tuxedo.

Mrs. Landingham: Aw, Danny. And I was just about to offer you a cookie.
