Storyline

The surgeon general makes some controversial comments about marijuana, leading to an attack by family values groups and an unsolicited comment by Bartlet's middle daughter, Ellie, to Danny Concannon that her father wouldn't fire the s.g. The president summons Ellie from med school in Baltimore to the W.H., and we learn that she, unlike her parents and sisters, is shy and reticent, and has always felt like the family outcast in Jed's eyes. Elsewhere, Sam gives a visiting movie producer a verbal lynching for publicly calling the president a coward after Charlie turns down a W.H. screening of his salacious new film. Written by meebly

Trivia

President Josiah Bartlet tells his daughter, Ellie, played by Nina Siemaszko, "The only thing you ever had to do to make me happy was come home at the end of the day." In the first season finale of Sports Night: What Kind of Day Has It Been? (1999), which featured Nina Siemaszko as a nanny, Casey McCall, played by Peter Krause, tells his son Charlie "The only thing you have to do to make me and your mom happy is to come home at the end of the day." Aaron Sorkin created both series, and wrote both episodes. See more »
