Bartlet throws down the gauntlet by naming two reformers to the Federal Election Commission. The debut of Kathleen York as Andrea, Toby's ex-wife. She's fun and spontaneous, and a perfect foil. Al Keifer and Joey Lucas spend time at the White House, providing numbers on Bartlet's campaign against racist drug laws. The Josh/Joey adorableness at its peak. The wonderful Bruce Weitz (Belker, HILL STREET BLUES) growls out a delightful Senate Majority Leader. Leo and Toby have a bang-up scene telling opposition staffers with bosses who have drug records in their families, that hypocrisy won't be tolerated. Another classic WEST WING New Jersey reference.
