Storyline

Bartlet and Leo debate on how to deal with the impending visit of the Qumari Defense Minister, whom U.S. intelligence officers have conclusively linked to terrorists. Sam dismisses an ingenious idea to trap Republican presidential opponent Robert Ritchie in an unsavory position over the Everglades, but comes around after talking to Toby. C.J. begins to develop a relationship with Secret Service agent assigned to her, Simon Donovan. Josh and Amy are locked into a battle over a welfare reform bill, whose outcome will cost one of them their job. Written by timdalton007

Trivia

Originally, Jessica Yu was set to direct 'We Killed Yamamoto,' however Thomas Schlamme, anticipating a late delivery of the script before production and thus less preparation, offered to take her place instead, and reschedule her directing for the next season. Yu accepted and Schlamme ended up having less than two days of prep before shooting. See more »

Goofs

When President Bartlet is leaving the cemetery at the beginning of the episode, the window in the limo is down. It is clearly a standard issue window, even though the President's limousine has bulletproof windows, which are anywhere from 2 to 5 inches (508-1270 mm) thick. Also, the President would not ride with the window open. See more »
