The President returns from Tokyo and is met by a wave of controversy after Surgeon General Griffith says that marijuana should be legalized. Things are made worse when the President's daughter, Ellie, tells reporter Danny Concannon that her father would never fire the Surgeon General. But Bartlet has much more personal things to worry about after he confronts Ellie about her statement. Meanwhile, Toby is forced to ask his ex-wife, a Maryland Congresswoman, for help regarding the Social Security panel; and Charlie's choice of movie for the President to watch ends up creating more controversy than expected.
Josh: All right. First things first - what time is it in Tokyo?
Toby: They're fourteen hours ahead.
Josh: I thought it was thirteen.
C.J.: Guys, there are clocks on the wall.
Charlie: Well he would have especially enjoyed the scene where the Prince Myshkin character has a seizure while engaging in an erotic fantasy in a Long Island church.
Mrs. Landingham: Charlie, please don't say the word "erotic" in the Oval Office.
Charlie: I'd be perfectly happy never to say any of those words anywhere ever again.
Andy: I find that when I skip over the first step and move right to the second step, it becomes a lot harder for people to say no.
Toby: I bring you here, and we sit, and we have coffee, and we have Danish, in the hope that calmer and, dare I say, prettier heads prevail.
Andy: Oh, I miss patronizing, sexist Toby.
Toby: I was referring to myself.
Josh: He's gonna land in Washington an hour before he took off.
Josh: That story doesn't beat the Surgeon General?
