Storyline

While Vinick and the Republicans deliver a flawless albeit predictable convention, the Democratic convention looks to be more like a pie fight as there is no clear favorite. Russell tries to preempt the floor vote by hinting offers of the vice presidential nomination to both Santos and Governor Baker of Pennsylvania. Charlie and Zoey's relationship is becoming more serious, resulting in different reactions from the President and the First Lady. An air leak on the International Space Station will kill all three astronauts unless a rescue mission can be launched. NASA advises that their shuttles are unfit for flight, but then hints at another solution. Written by Murray Chapman

Goofs

The ISS (International Space Station) develops a problem. It is stated that there are no means for evacuating the astronauts aboard. That is not true. A Russian Soyuz TMA spaceship is always docked to the station. It is capable of carrying three men and reenter into the atmosphere. See more »

Leo McGarry: [resignedly] Wonder who we can get?
President Josiah 'Jed' Bartlet: If it helps, it gives me no pleasure dumping this damn thing on you.
Leo McGarry: There's the pleasure of not having to do it yourself.
President Josiah 'Jed' Bartlet: Which is not inconsiderable.
