Doing this one reminded me once again how many problems I have with Season 3.  It has a few of the best episodes of the series in it (Bartlet for America, yo), but it also has some of the worst (The Women of Qumar, ugh), and it’s ultimately the second weakest season for me.

H. Con 172 (3.10)
  • Leo: Okay, well, I'll just call the President and suggest to him that he allow a huge bipartisan vote on the floor of the US House of Representatives calling him a liar, and that he welcome the result. Then I'm going to flap my wings and fly to Neverland.
  • Jordon: Leo.
  • Leo: You think that I am so desperate to save my ass that I'm going to roll over on Jed Bartlet?
  • Cliff: I don't think it's a matter of -
  • Leo: I take a bullet for the President! He doesn't take one for me.

  • Josh: I'd like to see her again.
  • Toby: Call her.
  • Josh: And ask her out?
  • Toby: Yeah.
  • Josh: No. No. Cause there's a potential she says no and then I have to move someplace where it'll never be spoken of again.
  • Toby: Yeah.
  • Josh: I need to come in under the cover of business.
  • Toby: Cause you're a straight shooter.
  • Josh: Yeah. I need a point of friction, an issue where the feministas and the White House disagree. That way I can go to her, break the bad news, stand tough, smooth it over and then, you know, I take it from there.
  • Toby: How about the word feministas?

West Wing Quote of the Day
  • Bartlet: [to Leo] I was wrong. I was. I was just...I was wrong. Come on, you know that. Lots of times we don't know what right or wrong is but lots of times we do and come on, this is one. I may not have had sinister intent at the outset but there were plenty of opportunities for me to make it right. No one in government takes responsibility for anything anymore. We foster, we obfuscate, we rationalize. "Everybody does it." That's what we say. So we come to occupy a moral safe house where everyone's to blame so no one's guilty. I'm to blame. I was wrong.

  • Josh: Well, I'm a straight shooter. I think my record's pretty clear on that.
  • Toby: Yeah.
  • Josh: [about Amy Gardner] I'd like to see her again.
  • Toby: Call her.
  • Josh: And ask her out?
  • Toby: Yeah.
  • Josh: No, no. 'Cause there's a potential she says no and then I have to move someplace where it'll never be spoken of again.
  • Toby: Yeah.
  • Josh: I need to come in under the cover of business.
  • Toby: 'Cause you're a straight shooter.

  • Toby: How about the word "feministas"?
