This guy's walking down a street, when he falls in a hole. The walls are so steep. He can't get out. A doctor passes by, and the guy shouts up "Hey you! Can you help me out?" The doctor writes him a prescription, throws it down the hole and moves on. Then a priest comes along and the guy shouts up "Father, I'm down in this hole, can you help me out?" The priest writes out a prayer, throws it down in the hole and moves on. Then a friend walks by. "Hey Joe, it's me, can you help me out?" And the friend jumps in the hole! Our guy says "Are you stupid? Now we're both down here!" and the friend says, "Yeah, but I've been down here before, and I know the way out. [beat] As long as I got a job, you got a job, you understand?"|
The reason I picked this one is because when I went to "An Evening with John Wells" a few years ago, when Martin Sheen got up to talk, he talked about when John Spencer got sick and needed surgery a few years before he died. And he went out of the state to have it done, because he didn't want anyone to know because he was afraid of what it would do to his career. Before he did it, he was talking to Martin and Martin told him to tell John Wells, that he could trust him. And when John Spencer did, John Wells basically expressed the same sentiment, that John Spencer would always have his job on The West Wing for as long as he wanted it as long as John Wells was in charge.
