"The West Wing" Bartlet's Third State of the Union (TV Episode 2001) Poster

Quotes

Toby Ziegler: ...if you combine the populations of Great Britain, France, Germany, Japan, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark and Australia, you'll get a population roughly the size of the United States. We had 32,000 gun deaths last year, they had 112. Do you think it's because Americans are more homicidal by nature? Or do you think it's because those guys have gun control laws?

Donna Moss: [Joey walks in] Joey...
