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

Fitzwallace (John Amos) claims that if Bonhoeffer had been successful, the Germans would have built a statue of an assassin. However, pacifist theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer had nothing to do with the July 20 attempt on Hitler's life (although he was falsely accused of this by the Nazis). The key conspirator and would-be assassin was Claus Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg. See more »

Goofs

Leo says that the US government spent millions of dollars developing a pen that could be used in space while the Russians simply used a pencil. The US also used a pencil. The Fisher Space Pen was developed privately with no funds from the US government. See more »

Quotes

Leo McGarry: Toby, an encouraging word from you to Sam wouldn't be totally out-of-line.
Toby Ziegler: Sam doesn't need to be patronized. He'll shake it off.
Leo McGarry: It'll make him feel better.
Toby Ziegler: I don't want him feeling better. I want him feeling mad. Is there anyone you'd rather have as a blood enemy less than Sam? That's how I want him.
Leo McGarry: You know, it was a screw-up. But I gotta say, I love the way he did it full-speed, bam. Like there's a Sam Seaborn-shaped hole in the wall.
