A pair of skinheads open fire as the President leaves a lecture theater, causing panic, chaos and injury. As the drama at the George Washington Hospital unfolds, C.J. and Leo field questions about exactly who is in charge while the president undergoes surgery, and Toby is asked about Secret Service protection measures. Flashbacks show the birth of the "Bartlett for America" campaign: Josh is courted by Leo; on his way to see Bartlett speak in New Hampshire he stops off to visit Sam at his Manhattan law firm; Toby is drinking at a bar, convinced he will be fired for advice he's given Bartlett.

The news reader for the special TV report on the President's shooting, as seen on TV in the White House by Mrs. Landingham and Margaret, mispronounces the shooting location, Rosslyn, Virginia. He says "ross lin" as if he had never heard of it. It is the current or former home of one of the three D.C. network TV stations, the Gannett publishing company, USA Today, and the Newseum, among others. Any local or network news anchor would know that it is pronounced 'Rosslyn /rozlin/. See more
Leo, the-the Democrats aren't gonna nominate another liberal, academic former governor from New England. I mean, we're dumb, but we're not that dumb.
Nah-I think we're exactly that dumb.
