In the wake of his daughter's kidnapping, Bartlet must make a decision between being a father and being President.
Did You Know?
While Toby is in the hospital room with his babies, the television is playing what is supposed to be home movie footage of Zoey as a child with her father. Even though the younger Jed Bartlet in the home movie is only seen very briefly, he is played by one of Martin Sheen
's real-life sons, actor and director Emilio Estevez
. This is the second time in their careers that Estevez has played a younger version of the same character that Martin Sheen was playing; the first time was in Nightbreaker
(1989). See more
The presidential oath is not taken by the Vice President or Speaker upon the 25th Amendment's incapacity provision being invoked. An Acting President is not the same as President. The former merely exercises the powers and duties of the President, without actually holding the office of President. See more

President Josiah Bartlet
Glenn, they've been up all night...
You're relieved, Mr. President.
You're relieved, sir.
