The clip camp david vacation from The American President (1995) with Michael Douglas, Annette Bening Good God. What? I'm looking at your college transcripts. This isn't human. Nobody gets this many A's. You were like a Stepford student. Are you still reading that ridiculous biography? No, I finished Andrew Shepherd: Road to the White House. Now I'm on to Shepherd: The Early Years. Seven trillion dollar communications system at my disposal... and I can't find out if the Packers won. Oh, Andy. C minus in women's studies? That course wasn't about what I thought it was gonna be about. President Shepherd was in Maryland this week... for his routine physical exam. Doctors at Bethesda Naval Hospital pronounced him in excellent health. Who cares! Just give us the scores! While the president spent the day at Camp David... GOP presidential hopeful Robert Rumson... continued his attacks on President Shepherd's character. During the Saturday news program, Capital Review With Kenneth Michaels... Senator Rumson suggested that G.D.C. political director, Sydney Ellen Wade... whose close personal relationship with the president... has been causing the White House headaches over the past two months... may have traded sexual favors... for key votes in the Virginia State Legislature... while lobbying for the Virginia Teachers Association. Wait a minute, Senator. That's a heck of an accusation to make. Let me be very clear about this. I am not making an accusation. I am saying, when you hear one thing, you dismiss it. You hear two, you dismiss it, but when several- several well-respected members... and former members of the Virginia State Legislature- Can you give us names? My God. He's making this up as he goes along. I'm so sorry, Sydney. I don't know what we call her. The First Mistress? Oh, man. My father heard that. He's just gonna have to turn a deaf ear. My father doesn't have a deaf ear. He hears fine out of both.

The clip prioritizing bills from The American President (1995) with Michael Douglas, David Paymer Tomorrow morning, the White House is sending a bill... to Congress for its consideration. It's White House Resolution 455... an energy bill requiring a 20% reduction... of the emission of fossil fuels over the next ten years. It is, by far, the most aggressive stride ever taken... in the fight to reverse the effects of global warming. The other piece of legislation is the crime bill. As of today, it no longer exists. I'm throwing it out. I'm throwing it out and writing a law that makes sense. You cannot address crime prevention... without getting rid of assault weapons and handguns. I consider them a threat to national security... and I will go door to door if I have to... but I'm gonna convince Americans that I'm right, and I'm gonna get the guns. We've got serious problems, and we need serious people. If you want to talk about character, Bob... you better come at me with more than a burning flag and a membership card. If you want to talk about character and American values, fine. Just tell me where and when, and I'll show up. This is a time for serious people, Bob, and your 15 minutes are up. My name is Andrew Shepherd, and I am the president. You don't see that every day. He's got the press corps asking how to spell "erudite. " Better call the printer. Gotta rewrite the State of the Union. Every word. It's a whole new ball game. You have exactly 35 minutes. Oh, good. I thought I was gonna be rushed.

The clip enlisting sydney from The American President (1995) "Global Defense Council" Good morning. Global Defense Council. You wanted to see me? I just spoke with A.J. Maclnerney. Did the president read the letter? The president's pissed as hell. That letter was a stupid move. It was aggressive, and I think we should stand by every word- This isn't the guy who needed our help. He's incredibly popular. He's gonna win reelection, and he could give a shit what we stand by! If the president passes history's most important environmental legislation... despite our negative endorsement, our future political weight... will rank somewhere below the Save the Spotted Owl Society. I'm bringin' in some help. We don't need another environmental expert to confirm what every other- Not an environmental expert. A professional political strategist. We're playing hardball with Andrew Shepherd, and we need a heavy bat. Who? Syndey Ellen Wade. Christ, Leo! That woman doesn't know anything about the environmental lobby! She's a closer, Susan. She gets the job done.

The clip not a prank call from The American President (1995) with Annette Bening, Nina Siemaszko Richard, it wasn't funny. I acted like a college freshman at a protest rally. Tell him the part about walking out the wrong door. Oh, God, I forgot about that. No, Richard, I don't want to hear your Andrew Shepherd imitation. I want to hear it. I'm hanging up now, Richard. Tonight I was gonna go to bed early and wake up where there's a new president. The president must think I'm a third-rate jerk. If he thinks you're a jerk, I'm sure he thinks you're a first-rate jerk. I tell you one thing, boy. I regrouped. You gotta give me that. I pulled it together at the end. I stood in the middle of the Oval Office and made it absolutely clear... that he who doesn't take the G.D.C. seriously, does so at his peril. And then you walked out the wrong door. Are you gonna be throwing that back at me the rest of my life? That's my current plan. That's gonna be Leo Solomon. He said he'd call at 9:00. Hello? Yeah, hi. Is this Sydney? Leo? No, this is Andrew Shepherd. Oh, it's Andrew Shepherd. Yeah, you're hilarious, Richard. You're just a regular riot. No, this isn't Richard. This is Andrew Shepherd. Oh, well, I'm so glad you called... because I forgot to tell you today what a nice ass you have. I'm also impressed that you got my number since I don't have a phone. Good night, Richard. This isn't Rich- This used to be easier. I don't believe this. Do you want me to deal with him? No. I may choke in front of Shepherd. Richard Reynolds I can handle. Hello? Sydney?

The clip meeting the french president from The American President (1995) Thank you. Miss Wade? Good evening. The president would like you to join him in the residence. May I show you the way? Of course. Sydney! Come on in. You look beautiful. Thanks. I have no idea what I'm doing here. I promise you, there's no hidden agenda. This is my wife Esther. Oh, sure. It's nice to see you. Sydney, Andrew Shepherd. We spoke on the phone. Yes, sir. I remember. Excuse me one minute. The president told me how you two met, Sydney. I think it's priceless. I don't know what happened. One minute, I was calling him a mockery of an environmental leader. The next minute, I had a date. Men like being insulted by women. It makes them feel loved. Don't ask me why. Mr. President, would you allow me to introduce to you... Sydney Ellen Wade of the commonwealth of Virginia? Sydney, this is President Rene-Jean D'Astier... and his wife Monique Danielle D'Astier of France. A great pleasure to meet you. It's an honor to meet you both. I'm so pleased to meet you. Mr. President, I'm sorry to interrupt. The receiving line is in place. Sydney, I think our table's ready.
