President Josiah "Jed" Bartlet: I told you...
Dr. Stanley Keyworth: I don't mean the job. I meant, you know, being inside your head.
President Josiah "Jed" Bartlet: What's wrong with my head?
Dr. Stanley Keyworth: I don't know.
President Josiah "Jed" Bartlet: Of course not, that would be $385 an hour.

Did you see anyone you knew on the plane, Dr. Keyworth?
17 November 2012 | by (Estero Island) – See all my reviews

The transcendent Adam Arkin returns as trauma specialist Stanley Keyworth, thinking he's been called to counsel Josh again. A series of subterfuges plop him into the presidential library, where he's left alone with...a president who hasn't slept in five nights, since Toby questioned him about his father. Could we have an entire season of episodes devoted solely to sessions between Stanley and Bartlet? As the two of them get into father issues, and the size of the ever-growing image Jed is trying to live up to...it's just brilliant. You get the feeling that Sorkin probably had as much fun writing it as the most appreciative fan did watching. As if all that weren't enough, there's a subplot that almost upstages the Emmy- worthy main plot, in which Sam compliments Ainsley on her sexiness, only to be accused of impropriety by an indignant temp (Alanna Ubach - HUNG, POUND PUPPIES). Also, Toby makes a compelling, even scorching, argument for global American interventionism.
