With only five votes keeping an important bill restricting the sale of automatic weapons, the staff has only 72 hours to find a way to get the five votes. Toby has to testify when he is accused of manipulating the stock market after one of his stock purchases becomes extremely profitable. Meanwhile, President Bartlet accidentally takes the wrong medication for his aching back and Leo’s long hours begin to strain his home life.
C.J.: Mr. President. Did you by any chance take your back pills?
Bartlet: I don’t mind telling you C.J. I was in a little pain there.
Leo: Which did you take, sir, the Vicadin or the Percocet?
Bartlet: I wasn’t supposed to take ‘em both?
Leo: There are two things in the world you never want to let people see how you make 'em: laws and sausages.
C.J.: Excuse me, Toby. I'm heading out to lunch and I'm a little short. You wouldn't happen to have $125,000 I could borrow?
Sam: Where are you going?
Josh: Where are you going?
Sam: I was following you.
Josh: I was following you. All right, don't tell anyone this happened, okay?
C.J.: Okay, Mr. President, we're going to have someone take you back to bed.
Bartlet: No no no. Sit sit sit. One of you's got a problem, and I'm here to help. You guys are like family. You've always been there for me. You've always been loyal, honest, hard-working good people, and I love you all very much, and I don't say that often enough. (to Sam) So, tell me what the problem is, Toby.
Sam: I'm Sam, sir.
Bartlet: Sam, of course you are.
Toby: There's literally no one in the world that I don't hate right now.
