Toby and Mandy work together to get a commerce bill with a census counting provision approved. In order to do this, they have to convince Mr. Willis, a congressman who took over his wife’s office after her death. Sam helps C.J. understand what stance the administration is taking on the random census in 2000. Meanwhile, Zoey gets herself into a dangerous situation when she goes to a Georgetown bar and President Bartlet approaches Leo after learning that Leo’s wife left him.
Josh: The president's daughter, the chief of staff's daughter, a Georgetown bar, and Sam. What could possibly go wrong?
Sam: You see how good it feels to know what you're talking about?
C.J.: And you see how I'm able to do it without being patronizing?
Sam: What happened to "You look good today."?
C.J.: I got over it.
Toby: I met an unusual man. He didn't walk in with a political agenda. He didn't walk in with his mind made up. He genuinely wanted to do what he thought was best. He didn't mind saying the words 'I don't know.'
Toby: Do you call or raise, sir?
Bartlet: There are three words in the English language and three words only that begin with the letters dw.
Josh: This is a pretty good illustration of why we get nothing done.
Josh: Donna? How much were the sandwiches?
Josh: I gave you a twenty.
Donna: Yes, as it turns out, actually, you gave me more money than I needed to buy what you asked for. However, knowing you, as I do, I'm afraid I can't trust you to spend the change wisely. I've decided to invest it for you.
Josh: That was nice. That was a little parable.
Donna: I want my money back.
Frat Boy: You know, I ain't done with you, Sammy.
Charlie: My name is Charlie Young, jackass, and if that bulge in your pocket's an eight-ball of blow, you're spending spring break in a federal prison.
Zoey: The hooker!
Sam: Ok. She's not a hooker, she's a call-girl. And how do you know about this?
Zoey: Mallory told me.
C.J.: How does Mallory know about that?
Sam: I told her.
C.J.: You told our boss's daughter you slept with a call girl?
Sam: I didn't know she was Leo's daughter at the time; I thought she was a school teacher who came in with her class.
Josh: So you thought you were telling a complete stranger you slept with a call girl?
Josh: Sam, I'm taking Charlie for a beer tonight before the vote. Zoey and Mallory are coming.
Sam: Sounds good.
C.J.: I like beer.
Josh: If you want to come I guess that'd be okay.
C.J.: Why, Josh, you've swept me off my feet.
Congressman Willis: I think the problems that we’re going to face in the new century are far beyond the Wisdom of Solomon, let alone me.
In The Bible, Solomon was a king that was renowned in ancient times for his wisdom and ability to solve problems fairly and sensibly.
