Oh, for Heavens sakes, look at these windows. They're filthy, Charlotte, they must be cleaned upstairs and down.
Um, no, it's supposed to snow, Ma'am.

In a TV world catering to the lowest common denominator, this show was a giant. It was intelligent humor at its best. While the characters were largely stereotypes and the skits often not original, the delivery was superb. David Hyde Pierce as the mumbling unlikely Congressman was especially wonderful.
I strongly urge Columbia and Sony to make the series available on DVD, I'd buy it and I've never bought a TV show before. Unfortunately, I suspect that the media moguls consider the commercial potential of a re-release in the context of the original shows popularity, so it may be a cold day in hell before "The Powers That Be" are in the store.
Furthermore, in our politically correct world, maybe it's now a violation of the Patriot Act.
