Sloan: I don’t know who told you you’re a bad guy, but somebody did, somebody along the way. Somebody or something convinced you of it, because you think you’re a bad guy, and you’re just not. I’m socially inept, but even I know that. So because you’re a ‘bad guy’, you try to do things that you think a good guy would do. Like committing to someone you like, but maybe don’t love: a sweet smart, wholesome midwestern girl. I could be wrong, I almost always am.
Don: [stares at Sloan] Why are you single?
Sloan: A lot of men are intimidated by my intelligence.
Don: No, seriously.
Sloan: Because you never asked me out.
Alright, maybe it’s just that this is literally the only 30 seconds of The Newsroom that I’ve seen, but am I the only one whose reaction to that “No, seriously” was “Diiiiiiiiiiiiick.”
