Quotes

Leo McGarry: Nobody's happy you lost Carrick, but we're all about moving forward, and we can't do that without you. I do, however, have to take you out to the woodshed and whack you with a 2x4.
Josh Lyman: Carrick was never really a Democrat. Word is he was working the Republicans...
[Leo leans back in his chair in disinterest]
Josh Lyman: I'm sorry. Whack away.
Leo McGarry: [sitting up straight] Maybe the camel's back was already broken, but you gave him the straw. And then you drove over him with a tank.
