Best clip on tv this week

Bill O'Reilly: I didn’t like the line in the (inaugural) speech about ... uhh... we don’t have to compromise our values to protect ourselves. Ummm I think sometimes we do.

Jon Stewart: If you don’t stick to your values when they’re being tested, they're not values, they’re hobbies!


  1. Jon Stewart's line is a word-for-word steal from an episode of the West Wing, when Sam Seaborn says verbatim the exact same thing. I can't remember exactly what episode, but it's late season two or early season three (so from either 2000 or 2001). Certainly it's not Jon Stewart's own line, and Aaron Sorkin, who wrote the West Wing, probably deserves a little more credit for it (maybe even from Jon)!

  2. I didn't realise that... though I was referring to the best clip of the week not the best quote.
