Storyline

Trying to participate in a late-night staff poker game proves difficult as news arrives that an unmanned U.S. spy plane has crashed in a remote part of Russia, and Bartlet and Leo have to deal with an incensed Russian President Chagorin and convince him via phone to let the military go in and recover the plane; C.J. obsesses over the fact that on the exact moment of the spring equinox (today), you can stand an egg on end; Toby and Will have a card-flipping contest in the press room, during which someone from the street fires several bullets into the room; Debbie must "crash" the West Wing for the first time when the bullets fly; at the same time, Josh is interviewing associate counsel applicant Joe Quincy, and there's something about the well-qualified lawyer that bothers Josh, which he deduces during the lock down.

Quotes

Joe Quincy: You know, I though I heard what sounded like gunshots when we were talking before, but I didn't.
[pauses]
Joe Quincy: Did you hear the shots?
Josh Lyman: No, but I heard a brass quintet playing "The First Noel," so I just assumed somebody somewhere was locked and loaded.
Joe Quincy: You know, not for nothing, but the people I talk to don't believe that story, and the people you'd like don't care.
