THE WEST WING

THE INDIANS IN THE LOBBY

I was thinking of this episode the other day and had to look up my favorite scene entitled "The butterball hotline" on You Tube.

Loved this scene and this epidode and wish Bravo would bring it back.

 It is the day before Thanksgiving and the President is talking turkey to whoever will listen (and everyone must). He is being very boring in his endless descriptions of how to cook and stuff a turkey. He is also rather disgruntled that the family must spend Thanksgiving at Camp David, rather than his New Hampshire farm. Although he has told Bruno he and the family are "off limits," Bruno lays it on the line for him that they have to be accessible to the voters. Meanwhile, two Native Americans are encamped in the lobby. They’ve been stood up by the official who was supposed to meet with them and they aren’t about to leave. CJ is told to make the problem go away. She was all set for the weekend, and is initially dismissive of them — a young, articulate woman and an older man. Eventually, however, she warms to their cause and promises action on several issues. Leo refuses to see them as they are camped in the lobby, and CJ comes up with a compromise to which they finally agree. Josh is busy with a juvenile who shot his teacher, and who was assisted by his parents to escape to Rome. Now, Josh needs to get him extradited but the Italians are not keen on returning him to Georgia as it is a state that has the death sentence. The President finally calls the "Butterball Hotline" as there seems to be a query over the actual stuffing of the turkey. When he finally gets through, he pretends to be someone from North Dakota.
