Storyline

President Bartet's attack of multiple sclerosis requires hasty reorganization of the summit in China. Unable to endure the long meetings, he becomes frustrated when the Chinese take advantage of his absence to drag their feet over North Korea. Back at the White House, Josh is told by NASA that a large asteroid is on a collision course with earth; staffers are unsure whether to prepare for the end of the world or not. Donna becomes frustrated when Josh continually postpones what she says is an important conversation. With the New Hampshire primary looming and Vinick looking like a formidable opponent, Josh and Leo try to find a Democratic presidential candidate they can believe in. Written by Murray Chapman

Trivia

The title refers to the possibility of a large asteroid hitting the planet and ejecting vast quantities of dust and ash into the atmosphere. This would significantly reduce the amount of sunlight reaching the earth's surface and cause a long global winter, resulting in failed harvests and famine. A large asteroid is theorized to have caused mass extinction amongst dinosaurs about 66 million years ago. See more »

Quotes

President Josiah 'Jed' Bartlet: I'm in one meeting the whole day. All they did was feed me tea made with Tienchi Ginseng and deer horn glue. You see, it's the thing for the nerve damage. But that meant I had to piss every twelve minutes, which is more of an ordeal than it was when I could stand without assistance. The new kid, Curtis, and I are becoming very close.
