Storyline

Toby falls prey to a practical joke by the rest of the staff, after which everyone but Leo takes off for the debate in San Diego. Sam makes a side trip to Newport Beach to explain to the congressional campaign manager of the late Horton Wilde why the campaign has to fold even though Wilde is still on the ballot; what Sam doesn't expect is a stalwart named Will Bailey who, determined to keep the ideas of the campaign alive, continues to hold campaign events and do door-to-door canvassing. In San Diego, a nervous w.w. staff readies itself to spin for the president, but when Bartlet and Richie go head to head in a unique debate format, Bartlet tears Richie apart on states' rights, education, taxes, etc., by being precisely the intellectual snob everyone had accused him of being and using it to his own advantage. Back in DC, Leo and Jordon Kendall meet with the Qu'mari ambassador to the U.N., and Leo warns Qu'mar to back off its campaign to charge Israel with the Sharif assassination. ... Written by meebly

Trivia

The character of Will Bailey's half sister is named "Elsie Snuffin". This is a reference to real life actress Elsie Sniffen (who later changed her name to Kayla Blake), who had a recurring role as Kim in Sports Night (1998), also written and created by Aaron Sorkin. Executive producer John Wells was also a supervising producer on the series China Beach (1988), where Sniffen appears in at least one episode. See more »

Snuffin!!
20 November 2012 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

Abbey's funniest (tie-cutting) moment in show history, the funniest practical joke in show history (at Toby's expense)...and a stirring debate victory over James Brolin's Governor Ritchie. Hal Holbrook's final appearance as Albie Duncan, and this time his crustiness is augmented by a moment that may bring a tear to your eye. Joanna Gleason is back as legal consultant Jordan Kendall, as a Qumari ship carrying weapons for terrorists has been seized. Leo has a tense standoff with their ambassador, played by the brilliant Tony Amendola (STARGATE: SG1). John Aniston moderates the debate. Will Bailey's quixotic dedication makes a believer out of Sam, who promises to run in the special election if Will's dead candidate wins. And the debut of...Snuffin!!! Elsie (Danica McKellar - THE WONDER YEARS) is wonderful, funny, and knows how to watch Sam walk away better than anyone in the biz. Sigh. If Sam hadn't left the show...
