Storyline

In a private, late-night meeting, Cliff Calley informs Leo and Jordon he has negotiated a settlement in the Congressional witch hunt over Bartlet's MS: Bartlet can accept a joint congressional censure (House Concurrent Resolution 172, or H.Con. 172); Leo initially refuses to bring it to the president, insisting it will devastate the president and affect him for the rest of his life, but he does mull it over, and consults with Josh and repeatedly with Jordon about it; Josh begins his romantic pursuit of women's issues advocate Amy Gardner, but flubs it a couple of times while she continues dating other men.

Trivia

Toby Ziegler says he watched the President's favorite movie the night before. He does not name the movie, but his description identifies it as The Lion in Winter (1968). See more »

Goofs

What Leo McGarry says, speaking with counsel Jordan, "This would be the first time ever a president has been censured" is incorrect. In 1834 the Senate censured Andrew Jackson ( in 1837 however the censure was expunged ). However, Leo corrects himself twice over the course of the day, once when talking with Josh about history's judgments and again when the president says he'll "make history" this way. See more »

Quotes

Larry: [reading from Ron Burkhalt's book] Bartlet was playing a round of golf with Toby Ziegler, the prickly, mumbling communications director whose inner bitter darkness spelled the break-up of the one marriage we know about.
C.J. Cregg: It was miniature golf, wasn't it?
Toby Ziegler: Yeah.
