TOBY: What are you still doing here?
CJ: Josh can't do the briefings. Anyway, I missed the last flight to Dayton, so it's moot.
CAROL: No, there's one at 7:50. You're booked on it. [C.J. gives Carol a look] Well, there is. I dont make the schedules.
TOBY: Go. I'll do the briefings.
JOSH: Good luck.
CJ: You can't. It's not your schtick. You don't know who to call on, where to look, when to smile and interrupt...
TOBY: Are you scared of that promise thing?
CJ: Yes.
TOBY: No, that can't be it. It's your dad. I, sorry. I... uh... How's he doing?
CJ: You're not allowed to use the words "Alzheimer's" or "doctors".
TOBY: Nevertheless, those are the relevant words.
CJ: His wife scares me. The woman who takes care of him scares me. Molly, she was my English teacher. Believe me, she was a very tough grader.
TOBY: You're scared of your high school English teacher.
CJ: Well, she's also now my stepmother, so it's just a little bit fraught.
TOBY: Did you ever not get an "A" in her class? Nevertheless, Dayton awaits. [Toby begins to walk out, but turns around.] Psst. Finish your speech.

CJ: What do you got?
WILL: Nothing.
CJ: He didn't do it?
WILL: No, I mean I didn't get anything.
CJ: I told you to...
WILL: To what, casually call people in New Hampshire and ask them if they think the President's son-in-law is committing adultery with the nanny?
CJ: You'll have to be a little more artful than that.
WILL: There is no art in trying to find out if somebody slept with someone else. You ask it straight out, or you don't. Art?
CJ: I didn't say it would be easy.
WILL: The segue hasn't been invented that takes us from "how's the weather" to "Is Doug Westin hammering the nanny?".
CJ: So you have nothing?
WILL: No. I found out it's really cold in New Hampshire.

VINICK: I want to give him back his briefcase.
BRUNO: I figured.
VINICK: "When in doubt, do the right thing."
VINICK & BRUNO [together]: "The rest of the time, get away with whatever you can."
VINICK: Who said that? It must have been one of those Louisiana governors.
BRUNO: Yeah, probably from his jail cell. You know, Santos never got the vetting a front-runner gets. He was never supposed to get the nomination. The press gave him a free ride in the primaries. Until now, he's been running way behind you, so the press still hasn't done their digging on him. But they will now. So, it really doesn't matter what you do with that briefcase. It's going to come out. If it comes out while Santos is in the White House... I don't know what happens. All hell will break loose.
VINICK: He wouldn't be the first President with an illegitimate child.
BRUNO: How far do you think he's going to get with that defense?
VINICK: You know what, if I agreed with a candidate on the issues, and I was ready to vote for him, and something like this came out about him, I'd still vote for him.
BRUNO: Good. That's you. And that's maybe most Santos voters. And it is every voter in France. But it is not this country, not yet. I don't want people wishing they could change their votes after this comes out. The voters have a right to know about it before making their voting decision.
VINICK: Come on, Bruno. This is me you're talking to. Please don't try to turn mud-slinging into a "Respect the Voters" spiel.
BRUNO: Don't tell anyone, but I don respect the voters. That's why I win. I find out what they care about. I don't try to tell them what they care about.
VINICK: That's not exactly my idea of leadership.
BRUNO: It's my idea of democracy. The voters get to set the terms of the elections, not us. They get to decide what's important, not us. That's why I think voters have a right to this information now instead of six months from now. They could be electing a President who's drowning in scandal when he's supposed to be trying to stop World War III from starting in Kazakhstan. And that is not the kind of guy most of the country wants to be the next Commander-In-Chief.

MAN: Governor Bartlet, when you were a member of Congress, you voted against the New England Dairy Farming Compact. That vote hurt me sir. I'm a businessman. That vote hurt me to the tune of maybe, 10 cents a gallon. I voted for you three times for Congress. I voted for you twice for Governor. And I'm here sir, and I'd like to ask you for an explanation.
BARTLET: Yeah, I screwed you on that one.
MAN: I'm sorry?
BARTLET: I screwed you. You got hosed.
MAN: Sir, I...
BARTLET: And not just you. A lot of my constituents. I put the hammer to farms in Concord, Salem, Laconia, and Elem. You guys got rogered but good. Today, for the first time in history, one in five Americans living in poverty are children. One in five children live in the most abject, dangerous, hopeless, backbreaking, gut wrenching, poverty, one in five, and they're children. If fidelity to freedom and democracy is the code of our civic religion then surely, the code of our humanity is faithful service to that unwritten commandment that says "We shall give our children better than we ourselves had." I voted against the bill 'cause I didn't want it to be hard for people to buy milk. I stopped some money from flowing into your pocket. If that angers you, if you resent me, I completely respect that, but if you expect anything different from the President of the United States, I suggest you vote for somebody else. Thanks very much. Hope you enjoyed the chicken.

BLAIR: The steam pipe trunk distribution venue.
QUINCY: This White House doesn't like lawyers very much, do they?
BLAIR: Really, they hold them just one rung above being a Republican.
QUINCY: Well, then we've won the jackpot, haven't we?
BLAIR: Oh, don't tell me you're one of those people who group up with the parents...
QUINCY: You know what, Law School, let's just settle down. Do I have briefing memos I have to read?
BLAIR: What do you think that these were?
[She points to a bookshelf loaded with paper boxes.]
QUINCY: I thought that was Xerox paper.
BLAIR: You're Associate White House Counsel, Mr. Quincy. We're not going to store Xerox paper in your office.
QUINCY: Sure. We'd never want to compromise the aesthetic integrity of the steam pipe trunk distribution venue.

Hey guys,

Just in case you were wondering where today's post is/when it will turn up -- between too much travelling, Christmas, and various things which are Made of Fail, the mods find themselves unable to compile this week's newsletter. So tww_full_lid will return next Friday.

Hope you're all having a good holiday season.

BARTLET: Why are you doing this? You're a player. You're bigger in the party than I am. Hoynes would make you national chairman. Leo! Tell me this isn't one of the twelve steps.
LEO: Yeah, that's what it is. Right after admitting we're powerless over alcohol and that a higher power can restore us to sanity, that's where you come in.
BARTLET: Leo.
LEO: Because I'm tired of it year after year after year after year having to chose between the lesser of who cares? Of trying to get myself excited about a candidate who can speak in complete sentences. Of setting the bar so low, I can hardly look at it. They say a good man can't get elected President. I don't believe that, do you?
BARTLET: And you think I'm that man.
LEO: Yes.
BARTLET: Does it matter that I'm not as sure?
LEO: Nah. Act as if ye have faith and faith shall be given to you. Put it another way, fake it till you make it.
