I love these little moments with Josh and minor characters* around the White House. I missed most of them, or failed to absorb them, the first time through, but they tell you that Josh isn’t just some sarcastic workaholic with few social skills. He’s a charming, likable, loving, loyal guy. He makes friends with (nearly) everyone. He cares about people. It’s easy to forget that about him when you only see him interact with Congressmen and Senators (who deserve all the rudeness in Josh’s arsenal).
*Zoey’s not exactly a minor character, but you get my point.
