Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs Bryce Lilly: Are you rewriting the section?
Will Bailey: Yes, sir.
Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs Bryce Lilly: Dramatically?
Will Bailey: Well, I like to think I have a certain flair.
President Josiah 'Jed' Bartlet: I can't remember your name, but are you asking me out on a date?
Toby Ziegler: I throw a rubber ball against the window; that means you come to me. As my frustration level grows, so does the velocity of the ball against the window.
Will Bailey: Don't you ever worry about the window breaking?
Toby Ziegler: During moments of peak frustration: when the Speaker of the House threatened to repeal the 16th Amendment, a couple of Yankee games, and when Congress censured my boss... but it's always held up, that window; that window is a game-day player.
President Josiah 'Jed' Bartlet: Some of which have my name on them. So tell Jeff Tomlison and Baby Bob to take a deep knee bend, would you? I'm just as big a cotton candy ass as they are.
Josh Lyman: Yes, sir.
President Josiah 'Jed' Bartlet: You're just going to let that hang in the air?
Josh Lyman: Of course not, sir. You're a much bigger cotton candy ass than they are.
President Josiah 'Jed' Bartlet: Damn right.
Will Bailey: You and Leo McGarry and Josh are his senior counselors. And it's not like he doesn't already want to go there.
Toby Ziegler: This language proposes a new doctrine for the use of force. That we use force whenever we see an injustice we want to correct. Like Mother Teresa with first strike capabilities.
President Josiah 'Jed' Bartlet: Why is a Kundunese life worth less to me than an American life?
Will Bailey: I don't know, sir, but it is.
Archbishop Zake Kintaka: Patrick, you may pray all you wish, but thousands upon thousands of African children will die unless the U.S. intervenes. Tens of thousands of Kundunese children and their parents slaughtered.
Cardinal: Well, I don't control the armed forces Zake.
President Josiah 'Jed' Bartlet: No he was talking to me, Your Eminence. Your Excellency, I got a very sketchy intelligence report on the violence in the capital about an hour ago.
Archbishop Zake Kintaka: The violence isn't limited to Batang sir, it has spread to the countryside.
President Josiah 'Jed' Bartlet: I didn't know that.
Archbishop Zake Kintaka: May I ask you something, sir, with all due respect.
Archbishop Zake Kintaka: If mass genocide had broken out in a small European country, would your intelligence briefing this morning have been quite so "sketchy"?
