Actually, it’s an old favorite, but I’m rewatching the show.
From Sports Night, episode 6, “The Head Coach, Dinner, and the Morning Mail”.
Natalie (played by the sparkly Sabrina Lloyd) has been receiving death threats from fans for making public that she was assaulted by a favored football player. Jeremy (lovable nerd Joshua Malina) hasn’t been sleeping out of concern for her. At the end of the episode, he’s tried to create a late-dinner picnic in the office, but he’s so exhausted, he’s fallen asleep while waiting for her. Natalie wakes him up briefly, they chat, and then we close on him back asleep, head in her lap.
It’s so touching and unusually meaningful. I loved those two as a couple.
