Awesome / The American President

Go To

  • The screenplay is written by dialogue maestro Aaron Sorkin, so when any character — especially Shepherd — has to get a big emotional speech off their chest... well, it's pretty awesome.
  • President Shephard gives an amazingly awesome rousing speech that just about turns everything on its head. The whole speech is awesome (it's fairly easy to find on Youtube if you're interested), but the crowning moment has to be the Ironic Echo, "I am the president."
    Lewis: He's got the whole White House Press Corps asking each other how to spell 'erudite'.
