Trivia

In The West Wing: Mr. Willis of Ohio (1999), during the President (Martin Sheen)'s kidnapping speech, Zoey (Elisabeth Moss) pointed out that she was starting college in a month and that she was 19 years old. In this episode Charlie (Dulé Hill) states that Zoey was 17 when she applied for college and her health form required a parent's signature. She would have been 17 when she applied to college and 19 when she started attending. It is also said in that episode that she is starting Georgetown in the spring, leaving at least a semester if not more (say, since she was still 17) in between graduating high school and starting Georgetown. She may have started at a different university, perhaps one that didn't give her the college experience she wanted. It is unlikely that she was held back enough to graduate high school in January at 19. See more »

Goofs

Charlie notes that Zoey was 17 when she started college, however, in Ep 1.6, Mr. Willis of Ohio, he tells the men at the bar that she is 19. See more »

Quotes

President Josiah Bartlet: I'm confident in your loyalty to me; I'm confident in your love for me. If you lie to protect me, if you lie just once, if you lie just a little, if you lie 'cause you can't stand what's happening to me and the people making it happen, if you ever, ever lie, you're finished with me. You understand?
Charlie Young: Yes, sir.
President Josiah Bartlet: Say you understand.
Charlie Young: I understand, sir.
