Is this the real life...

The Fugees doing a cover of 'Bohemian Rhapsody' is weird.

But strangely cool...

Is this just fantasy?
Hey Mads, do you know which west wing episode it is when the grumpy mumbley guy with the beard has to go and talk to a whole bunch of free trade protestors, and the black police woman befriends him and convinces him to talk to them?

That would be the episode "Somebody's Going to Emergency, Somebody's Going to Jail", one of my all time favourites. The 'grumpy mumbly guy' would be Toby, and the black police woman would be Officer Rhonda Sachs. There's talk about how free trade stops war and how globalisation isn't all bad. And quotes like this:

Toby: They claim to speak for the underprivileged, but here in the blackest city in America I'm looking at a room with no black faces, no Asians and no Hispanics. Where the hell is the third world they claim to represent?
Rhonda: A lot of third-worlders in the cabinet room today, were there?
Toby: You're starting to annoy me.
Rhonda: That's 'cause I'm armed.
Toby: No, I like that.

Toby: I hate these people with the heat of a nova, yet here I go.
Rhonda: 'Atta boy.
Toby: Shut up.
Rhonda: I got your back, man, y'know? Or not.

There's also the whole 'Organization of Cartographers for Social Equality' storyline, which is just plain fabulous. Especially the now iconic (well, for me anyway) CJ line:

C.J.: You can't do that.
Dr. Fallow: Why not.
C.J.: 'Cause it's freakin' me out.

Ahhh, the West Wing...

(So, yeah, in answer to your question, 'Somebody's Going to Emergency, Somebody's Going to Jail', season 2, episode 16.)
