Allison Janney: So, I told the President, you have got to do something about gas prices.
Joshua Malina: Everyone knows the President has no control over gas prices.
Melissa Fitzgerald: Uh, not everyone knows that.
Allison Janney: Duffy, do you have the new initiative?
Joshua Malina: New? What initiative?
Melissa Fitzgerald: Initiative? Sounds important.
William Duffy: It is important.
Joshua Malina: So tell us what it is.
Dule Hill: Did somebody say initiative?
Joshua Malina: Actually, a bunch of us said initiative.
Allison Janney: I definitely said initiative.
William Duffy: This initiative cuts the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.
Allison Janney: It says it does the same for breast cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer.
Dule Hill: It prevents depression, too.
Melissa Fitzgerald: And it only takes thirty minutes a day?
Dule Hill: [??] won't like this.
Joshua Malina: What do they have to do?
Dule Hill: Nothing. I just thought someone should say that.
Allison Janney: We need to talk to the President.
William Duffy: I was heading there.
Allison Janney: That's where I'm headed.
Melissa Fitzgerald: I'm right behind ya. Headed there as well.
Joshua Malina: Me too. Coming!
Dule Hill: I had another walk and talk to go to, but I think I'll stay with this one.
Joshua Malina: Did you guys see this can lower risk of heart disease?
Allison Janney: Well of course we did! It's our initiative!
William Duffy: Actually, it's my initiative.
Allison Janney: Yours, mine, what's the difference? [Smack]
William Duffy: Ow.
Allison Janney: Mister President? Mister President. [Thump]
Martin Sheen: Missus Nightingham! Somebody's in the house!
William Duffy: She's dead, sir.
Martin Sheen: Right.
Allison Janney: Mister President, I want you to look at an initiative.
Martin Sheen: I'm a very busy man.
Dule Hill: Sir, we need your help. We need to convince the American people to do something that's good for them.
Martin Sheen: Oh, that's impossible.
Allison Janney: Please, sir. Just have a look.
Martin Sheen: Oh my.
Melissa Fitzgerald: What's wrong? It's not too dangerous is it?
Martin Sheen: Not at all.
Allison Janney: Is it too expensive?
Martin Sheen: Actually, it's free.
Joshua Malina: Does it involve wearing leather gloves and tight pink spandex?
Martin Sheen: I suppose it could, but no.
Dule Hill: The problem is, that it's too simple.
William Duffy: Yes. It's very simple. It's walking.
Joshua Malina: I may be late to the game here, but what is walking?
Allison Janney: You know. Walking. We do it all the time?
Joshua Malina: [Gasp] Am I doing it now?
Allison Janney: Sort of.
Martin Sheen: Look at this, friends. Just one half hour a day, or two fifteen minute walks are beneficial.
Dule Hill: What about three ten minute walks?
Martin Sheen: That'll do it!
Allison Janney: Or ten three minute walks.
Martin Sheen: That adds up to thirty minutes.
Joshua Malina: This will never sell.
Martin Sheen: You're right. We need an idea.
Joshua Malina: What about a show about walking and talking?
All Cast Members: NO!
Martin Sheen: Friends, in the time of Socrates...
Allison Janney: Oh Lord.
Martin Sheen: Philosopher kings would walk round and round the Parthenon to stimulate discourse. Walking increases circulation, generates positive neuro-chemicals in the brain, and this, above all, to thine own self be true.
William Duffy: And more importantly.
Martin Sheen: And more importantly, walking is where I get all of my best ideas. Thank you, Charlie. Come, friends! We're going for a walk!
