Lewis Rothschild in The American President, played by the amazing Michael J Fox, because of this scene:
( Read it, see it. )
Dan Rydell from Sports Night, for so much, but mostly for how he looks at the end of this scene. I’ve never seen anyone on any show look so happy. In fact, I think this might be my favorite episode of any show, of all time. Video link. And, thanks as always to the amazing sntranscripts for the transcripts.( More. )
C.J. Cregg from The West Wing. Because she’s tall, and smart, and funny, and tough, and vulnerable, and can hold her own most of the time, and she’s endearingly human.
SAM: There are bathrobes at the gym?
CJ: In the women's locker room.
SAM: But not the men's…
SAM: That's outrageous. There's a thousand men working here and 50 women.
CJ: Yeah, and it's the bathrobes that's outrageous.
Isaac Jaffe from Sports Night. Because he’s older, wiser, and just hilarious in his own right. Plus, of course, since Robert Guillaume had a stroke in real life, and was willing to play it that Isaac had a stroke too. But mostly because he is so dry.
( Proof... )
Matt Albie from Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. Because Matthew Perry was a revelation, and seemed happy to play a good, strong, smart and sensitive character who was also a bit of a buffoon and kind of a jerk.
Matt: Thanks, man. I miss her. I really do. I'm dying inside, and I appreciate your support.
Danny: Go up on the stage now.
Danny: You just won.
Matt: Hey, that's great!
