Storyline

The surgeon general makes some controversial comments about marijuana, leading to an attack by family values groups and an unsolicited comment by Bartlet's middle daughter, Ellie, to Danny Concannon that her father wouldn't fire the s.g. The president summons Ellie from med school in Baltimore to the W.H., and we learn that she, unlike her parents and sisters, is shy and reticent, and has always felt like the family outcast in Jed's eyes. Elsewhere, Sam gives a visiting movie producer a verbal lynching for publicly calling the president a coward after Charlie turns down a W.H. screening of his salacious new film. Written by meebly

Quotes

President Josiah 'Jed' Bartlet: Retaliatory tariffs on steel imports are a disaster. Anyone wants to check my math they're more than welcome to. Anybody wants to shove the Golden Gate Bridge up Japan's ass they're more than welcome to do that too.
