In a private, late-night, Cliff Calley informs Leo and Jordon he has negotiated a settlement in the Congressional witch hunt over Bartlet's MS: Bartlet can accept a joint congressional censure (House Concurrent Resolution 172, or H.Con. 172); Leo initially refuses to bring it to the president, insisting it will devastate the president and affect him for the rest of his life, but he does mull it over, and consults with Josh and repeatedly with Jordon about it; Josh begins his romantic pursuit of women's issues advocate Amy Gardner, but flubs it a couple of times while she continues dating other men.

When Leo and Jordon emerge from the elevator at the beginning of the episode, the camera lingers on a portrait of Andrew Jackson before they enter the conference room. Andrew Jackson was the only sitting US President to be censured, although that censure was later expunged. See more
When Bartlet is showing Toby the map of the Middle East from 1707, Toby points out Israel isn't on the map. Bartlet explains Israel wasn't created for "another 250 years", it was actually created 241 years later in 1948. See more

Look, I'm really not going to talk to you about my underwear.
That's... disappointing, Mr. President.
