If you’ve never seen “The Apology”, the second episode of Sports Night, you’ve never seen the first great television episode Aaron Sorkin wrote (the pilot of SN is good; “The Apology” is brilliant, devastating, and not at all like anything you’d see in a “classic” sitcom).
It’s good television.
And that’s a quote from the brilliant monologue Josh Charles’ Dan Rydell delivers at the end of the episode, which begins: “I have a younger brother named Sam.”
Yesterday was apparently National Sibling Day. I’ve been meaning to post this quote since Feb 12th, so it seems only appropriate I do it today.
