Advise and Consent


With the president's right | to name his cabinet?

Try that line on the members of your | own party. Say, Seab Cooley.

- Hello, Brig? How's the boy? | - Right in the middle of breakfast.

What's on your mind, Lafe?

Just wondered what you think about | the appointment. Crazy, huh?

- Think so? | - Well, it's gonna be a rough one.

I wouldn't be surprised.

- I thought you might be upset about it. | - Why would I be upset?

The trouble he gave you | on your power bill.

- That's right. He did, didn't he? | - You mean it's okay?

- Is that what Bob Munson wants to know? | - You got television on your phone?

Just a second, Lafe.

- You going, baby? | - Yeah.

- You still love me? | - Yeah.

- How much? | - That much.

Time for her bus, Brig.

Have a nice time in school today, honey.

- Lafe? | - Yeah.

Look, I'm not grinding | an ax for Leffingwell...

but I'm not gonna commit myself | right now either.

I'd like to wait and hear what he has to say | at the committee hearing.

Apart from that, I'm just gonna sit back | and watch Seab Cooley light up the sky.

Had your fire and brimstone | this morning, Seab?

Yes, sir, Mr. Majority Leader.

Laced with hot bourbon and branch water.

I expect you can see the flames | coming out of my ears.

Can we have a little talk?

If you mean about | Mr. Robert A. Leffingwell...

- it'd be a fruitless conversation. | - The president, the party and l...

would take it as a favor | if you'd lay off.

I honor the president, I love my party...

and I admire you, Mr. Majority Leader, | except where it crosses with my convictions.

I believe Mr. Robert A. Leffingwell | will lead us straight to perdition.

Come on, we know what's eating you.

Leffingwell made a liar out of you | in a hearing five years ago.
