Transcript The West Wing

My wife asked me to put her wedding band in my pocket this night for luck, and it was a lucky night. I thought about not coming—not a good thought. [laughter]

I think I’m the oldest guy in the room, with the possible exception of Robert Altman.


So this is very, very gratifying, to get to a place in my life and a place in my career where these kinds of things are happening. I’ve been nominated recently for a few awards and I’ve prepare myself for an early Passover. [laughter] And there’s one coming very soon, but I’ll accept this on behalf of a brilliant cast and family that Alison went on and on about—and she knows their names better than I do. [laughter]

And to all of you, the players, my thanks, my sincere thanks.
