Not the real West Wing, trust me - if I was making a scene in the real West Wing you would have all heard about it by now.
This is one of my favorite scenes from what I consider one of the best TV shows ever made - 'The West Wing'
Leo - the chief of staff - is speaking to his deputy Josh.
Josh is having a very hard time and is resisting help.
Leo tells him this little story.
A man falls into a hole. It is deep and he can't get out.
A doctor walks by and the man shouts up to him
"Doctor, I have fallen down here and can't get out. Please help"
The doctor scribbles a prescription, tosses it down and moves on.
A priest walks by. The man once again shouts out - "Father, I need help getting out of here"
The priest says a prayer and moves on.
Next one of the man's friends walks by.
The man calls out - "Joe! I have fallen into this deep hole and can't get out"
Joe jumps down into the hole.
The man is incredulous - "Why would you jump in? Now we're both stuck down here"
Joe pats his friend on the back - "It's OK" he tells him, "I've been here before and I know the way out."
And on we go ...
