But anyway, the highlight of the episode was McCoy's concluding line, "I say let them marry and be as miserable as the rest of us," which sounded exactly like something Adam Schiff would have said while drinking Scotch at the end of the episode and led to the following conversation:
scarcrest: So McCoy has turned into Adam Schiff.
kellinator: Yeah, because Branch is an asshole!
Obligatory disclaimer: Fred Thompson is from the next county over from me. I always considered him not much of an elected official.
