Goofs

While Amy and Josh are arguing about a treaty banning prostitution, Amy states that "the more toothless a treaty is, the more toothless it is". Josh refers to this as a "permeating syllogism"; however, Amy's argument is in fact an example of tautology (making an argument by repeating the premise), not syllogism. See more »

Quotes

President Josiah Bartlet: You know, after the Civil War, veterans had to come to D.C. to get their pensions? They had to visit the office personally. They waited for a clerk to look through all the Civil War records until their papers were found. You know what the papers were bound with?
Toby Ziegler: No.
President Josiah Bartlet: Red tape. That's where it comes from.

They're beating the women, Nancy.
17 November 2012 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

The U.S. agrees to sell weapons to Qumar, a country that brutally abuses women. The White House men hide from the women. A C.J. top-five entry. The debut of Mary-Louise Parker (WEEDS, FRIED GREEN TOMATOES) as Amy Gardner, women's issues lobbyist. In 23 episodes from now until the end of the run, she never misses a beat. A mercenary Earth goddess with a razor tongue. She and Josh have a high-powered debate on prostitution. They go on to share some of the most hysterical, resonant romantic moments in the history of the show...all while a part of you silently screams for him to get back to Donna. It's a fine line producers have to walk, when introducing a new romantic interest for a character the audience is aching to see with someone else. They have to be compelling...but only to a point. If the chemistry is too good, the larger arc is derailed. If it's too flaccid, the romance is just an obvious stalling tactic. No matter how good the performers and writing are, it's ultimately a crapshoot...but Amy couldn't have been more perfect.
