Let's play a game.

Say that, like the lesser Studio 60, The West Wing only got 22 episodes.  From all 7 seasons, which 22 would you pick to be the ones that survive?  You can provide reasons if you have the time.  (This has been a draft for ages, finally have the internet to publish!)

Here's my list of the 22 that make the cut:

01. Institutional Memory (I want us to talk because I like the sound of your voice // You need a frying pan to the side of your head)
02. Drought Conditions (Can this be one of those nights where we get sloshed and forget we work together?)
03. The Supremes (I love her. I love her mind. I love her shoes.)
04. Somebody's Going To Emergency, Somebody's Going To Jail (what Lincoln called the last full measure of devotion)
05. 18th and Potomac (Aspirin, my brother)
06. Night Five (I don't remember having to explain to Italians that our problem wasn't with them, but with Mussolini!)
07. California 47th (Uh-uh ladies, I saw him first)
08. The Women of Qumar (They're beating the women, Nancy)
09. The State Dinner (and an ego the size of Montana)
10. Mandatory Minimums (Making decisions is my birthright)
11. Take Out The Trash Day (by God, we are going to protect Julia Child.)
12. Debate Camp (Team Toby)
13. Privateers (It's real.)
14. Two Cathedrals (then God, Jed, I don't even wanna know you).
15. And It's Surely To Their Credit (when I write something, I sign my name)
16. 17 People (I would bet all the money in my pockets // I wouldn't stop for red lights)
17. The Leadership Breakfast (with the spicy bouquet that suggests a fine Merlot)
18. Dead Irish Writers (they were all American when I left!)
19. The War At Home (do you have any idea how good a doctor I am? And I can't tell you why.)
20. Ellie (the only thing you ever had to do // how can it be Thursday the whole time?)
21. Gone Quiet (a copy of the Constitutional Order of Succession)
22. Commencement (you're just sad).

That was surprisingly difficult.  Thank God I just made this game up and don't need to trim it down any more!
