Storyline

On a typical night in the west wing, Sam returns from a hockey game and Josh asks him to meet with V.P. Hoynes about saving an education bill. Back at the W.H., Josh, Toby, Leo, C.J., Larry and Ed all meet about the prospect of replacing Hoynes on the ticket in the next campaign. Bartlet helps Charlie do his federal taxes, and while both think Charlie should expect a refund, thanks to last year's so-called economic stimulus, he instead owes money to the IRS. A security emergency occurs when two trucks, one stolen and containing nuclear waste, crash in a tunnel in Idaho, threatening to explode and wipe out a nearby town. Donna asks Josh to ask the president for a special proclamation recognizing her favorite h.s. teacher. Bartlet can't oblige, but he comes up with a very uplifting consolation for Donna to let her teacher know how much she appreciated her. Episode title refers to James Bond's preference for "shaken, not stirred," which Bartlet insists results in a weak martini; this ... Written by meebly

Trivia

The reason a martini would be stirred is not to avoid chipping the ice, but to prevent air from being dissolved rapidly into the gin causing it to taste bitter. Regardless, James Bond prefers a vodka martini which is indeed supposed to be shaken so that it will get colder faster. See more »

Goofs

Toby says that Bartlet must carry "the Northeast, Pacific Coast, and Industrial Northwest" to win re-election. There is no such area as the "Industrial Northwest" - perhaps he meant "Industrial Midwest". See more »

James is ordering a weak martini and being snooty about it
18 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

The writers display deftness by not having two working class African- Americans who unexpectedly provide Charlie a moment of consolation, tell him they "know who he is", though they must have. Donna asks Josh for a presidential proclamation honoring her favorite teacher. In a Seaborn meeting with Hoynes, it's revealed that the President doesn't know John is an alcoholic, something that astounds the V.P. John tells Jed and his staff. All the while, the staff has been pondering the electoral math, and replacing Hoynes on the ticket. Wonderful work by Mr. Matheson. Look for Randy Oglesby, another of the only four actors to play seven different characters on STAR TREK.
