On the series' first "Big Block of Cheese" Day (nicknamed "Total Crackpot Day" by Josh), staffers meet with reps of various organizations causes, e.g., C.J. hosts a group that wants $900 million for a "wolves only" highway. The president has everyone to the residence for a homemade chili party, we learn about Mrs. Landingham's past, and Zoey is introduced to the group, including Charlie, for whom the intro soon becomes fateful (recurring romantic relationship throughout the series).

Toby mentions that C.J. once called him a paranoid nudnik. "Nudnik" is a real word. It is Yiddish and means "someone who is a boring pest". See more
When Josh is listening to "Ave Maria" he claims that Schubert was crazy. Medically speaking, this was untrue and it's more then likely that the writers were thinking of composer Robert Shumann, who did in fact end up in an insane asylum towards the end of his life. See more
President Josiah Bartlet
I'm sorry, but some of my staff has been waiting and they haven't had the chance to bother me for a couple hours.
