"The West Wing: The White House Pro-Am (#1.17)" (2000)
[the President and Zoey discuss her college courses]
President Josiah Bartlet: On the other hand, I would definitely put my shoulder into "Intro to Cinema". "Intro to Cinema" is what got me where I am today.
Zoey Bartlet: Did you call me over to make fun of me?
President Josiah Bartlet: That was going to be a big part of my day.

"The West Wing: Mr. Willis of Ohio (#1.6)" (1999)
[the President's daughter chafes at her Secret Service protection]
President Josiah Bartlet: My getting killed would be bad enough, but that is not the nightmare scenario. The nightmare scenario, sweetheart, is *you* getting kidnapped. You go out to a bar or a party in some club and you get up to go to the restroom and somebody comes from behind and puts their hand across your mouth and whisks you out the back door. You're so petrified you don't even notice the bodies of a few Secret Service agents lying on the ground with bullet holes in their heads. Then you're whisked away in a car. It's a big party with lots of noise and lots of people coming and going, and it's a half hour before someone says, "Hey, where's Zoey?" Another fifteen minutes before the first phone call. It's another hour and a half before anyone even *thinks* to shut down all the airports. Now we're off to the races. You're tied to a chair in a cargo shack somewhere in the middle of Uganda and I am told that I have 72 hours to get Israel to free 460 terrorist prisoners. So I'm on the phone pleading with Be Yabin and he's saying: "I'm sorry, Mr. President, but Israel simply does not negotiate with terrorists, period. It's the only way we can survive." So now we got a new problem because this country no longer has a Commander-in-chief, it has a father who's out of his mind because his little girl is in a shack somewhere in Uganda with a gun to her head. Do you get it?
Zoey Bartlet: Yes.

Charlie Young: Respectfully, no.
Zoey Bartlet: Why?
Charlie Young: 'Cause I'm in love with you, and that's the way it goes.

"The West Wing: Evidence of Things Not Seen (#4.20)" (2003)
Zoey Bartlet: It's been four years in the White House, another being the daughter of a candidate. Eight years as Governor. My grades get printed in the paper. My boyfriends are in the paper... I live and die with my parents' successes and failures.
