Thank God for cable television. While the networks are happy to let reality and reruns rule the airwaves, outlets such as HBO, TNT and USA are giving us not just scripted programs, but ones that are better than a whole lot of what the big guys have on tap. Last night’s POLITICAL ANIMALS featured a great cast delivering some top-notch dialogue. Wanna listen in on a few snippets? Here are five of the many, many great lines uttered during the pilot!
“Of all the industries available to you, looking the way you do — porn, reality hosting — you chose journalism. Why?” — Seasoned journalist Susan Berg to busty blogger
“I go on TV to try and communicate a vision and America collectively turns me off to watch drunk housewives and singing competitions.” — President Paul Garcetti
“Giving a drug addict that kinda money is like buying a blind man a gorgeous hooker. It’s plain stupid!” — Former President Bud Hammond
“There has to be a rule about talking about my mother while I’m inside of you.” — First Son Douglas Hammond to girlfriend Anne Ogami
“Never call a bitch a bitch. Us bitches hate that.” — Secretary of State Elaine Barrish Hammond
