    Summary

    "Alyssa Leah Nelson was exactly one day, one minute, and thirty-two seconds old when she met Joshua Lyman (who was two months, three days, four hours, forty minutes, and seventeen seconds, though no one’s counting) for the first time. He poked her. She looked back at him, determined, and didn’t cry. They’ve been inseparable ever since."

    High school is high school. And every single one of our faves had to go there at one point. And every single one of them dated, and had friends, and had drama because of course they did. And, of course, were obsessive about politics

    Summary

    Danny wakes up before dawn to find his pants and sneak out the door. The sun is just creeping over the Manhattan skyline as he closes the apartment building’s front door behind him, the freezing March air cutting right through his shirt, the same one he wore on his way here the night before. He slides the brass key to the front door back into the pocket of his wallet that he hides it in—not that it needs to be hidden. There’s no reason that he shouldn’t have a key to Casey’s place. They’ve been best friends for nearly two decades. There’s no reason anyone should suspect that Casey didn’t give him a key until they started fucking six months ago.

    Summary

    It’s a Tuesday night and they’re both sprawled out on the couch in their living room watching game six of the 2021 World Series when suddenly a lightbulb goes off in Casey’s head. He sits up abruptly, slapping one hand on Dan’s knee and points to the TV with the other as a picture of the next batter on deck for the Braves appears.

    “Danny.” He says, voice astonished. “This kid looks just like you.”

    Summary

    Casey grabs his son gently by the shoulders when he gets close and looks down into Charlie’s eyes. He sees the same little kid he used to see in the mirror growing up. One who’s fumbling around, trying to seem cool and trying to always make his dad proud but feeling like nothing he’ll ever do will work.

    Summary

    “I don’t have the year wrong nor do I have the person wrong. You, on the other hand, have all your facts wrong.”

    Casey’s glaring at him, he doesn't have to look up from his script to know that.

    Summary

    “If you don’t like working with me, why do you still do it?” Danny asked, halfway under his breath.
    “What?” Casey’s brown eyes raged like a forest on fire. He seemed even angrier to not be able to hear Dan.
    “If you hate working with me—if you hate working with such a shallow, jealous jackass—why do you do it? Why don’t you quit me, once and for all?”

    Or, Danny comes to terms with the real reason he didn’t leave New York.

    Summary

    Dan doesn’t have a car in Dallas, but once he and Casey become thick as thieves (so, pretty much immediately) Casey offers to give him a ride to the office each morning. Sometimes, he lets Dan drive.

    On those days, Dan gets to pick the music. Casey complains loudly about that, but with a smile tugging at the corner of his lips. Dan brings his cigar box of cassette tapes, stashing it in the back seat.

    (Or, 6 times Dan and Casey discussed music during Dan's internship in the summer of 1988.)

    Missing scenes from A Little Respect.

    Summary

    If you were to ask Casey what happened, he would tell you this story:

    Shortly after The Divorce (it is important, in Casey’s stories, that you can hear the capitalization—he assigns emphasis to things, sometimes nouns, vaguely Germanic in his insistence on this appropriate apportioning of weight), he was staying at Danny’s. He was sleeping on Danny’s couch because that was the thing one did when one was undergoing a divorce.
