Quotes

A.B. Stiles: You know, my daddy told me "When you go to war, always carry an American gun. That way, if you're captured, you tell them 'When my grandfather went to Germany to fight the Nazis, he carried this pistol, and it never jammed on him once.' And then you tell them 'When my father went to Vietnam to fight the Cong, he carried this pistol, and it never jammed on him once.' And while you're telling them this
[pulls a Glock from an ankle holster]
A.B. Stiles: you shoot them with an Austrian gun and come home alive.

Unintentionally Amusing?
17 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

I have recently caught this show on Saturdays (Yes, I have no life) and I have found it very amusing and interesting. I mean, in "French Kiss" four men in a MBE pull guns on each other thinking they are all terrorists only to find out they work for the CIA, FBI, INS and Secret Service respectively--that's a classic, especially since they really don't ever know what the other is doing. However, I find it remarkably amusing because, well, when you know enough about the

background of a show like this or the West Wing, it's interesting to see the little coincidences and foibles in the show. This show is funny, even at times when I think it should be dead serious I find it humorous. BTW, I noticed that Jennifer Brandes and Chris Hepler have written a couple of episodes this season--both of which I found to be very cool. Jennifer and Chris wrote a book that I thoroughly enjoyed because while it was factually accurate and intriguing, it was also written with a lot of humor and wit to it (except where certain parts were obviously injected by the editors for apparently no reason). Good work guys.
