  • Bartlet: By the power invested in me by the Constitution of the United States, I hereby pardon you.
  • Morton: Okay.
  • Bartlet: No, it's not okay. Morton, I can't pardon a turkey. If you think I CAN pardon a turkey, then you've got to go back to your school and insist that you be better prepared to go out in the world.
  • Donna: You can't pardon a turkey?
  • Bartlet: No. I'll tell you what I can do. I'm drafting this turkey into military service.
