Someone as talented and prolific who’s written for as many shows as Aaron Sorkin, it’s inevitable that you’re going to plagiarize yourself from time to time. But it’s impossible for me to imagine that a guy whose pet phrases include “I’m really quite something,” “ya think?” and people correcting each other’s usage of “who” and “whom” isn’t incredibly smarmy. He strikes me as either a guy who gets punched a lot, or not enough.
If there was ever a need for a poll, this is that moment. (By the way, if you don't think Aaron Sorkin should be punched at least once, you should read this article, and then prepare to serve him a knuckle sandwich.)
