The White House staff and the President deal with the disastrous hypothetical poll results but are torn away from the national broadcast announcing his condition when the newly elected Haitian president flees and requests sanctuary in the U.S. embassy. C.J. and Leo discuss the keeping the news under wraps while Babish talks to Abbey about her treatment of Bartlet's MS. Meanwhile, Josh has to deal with two Senators who aren't supporting the Bartlet Administration's lawsuit against tobacco companies; and Mrs. Landingham buys a new car, but her excitement soon turns tragic.
Toby: If everybody out there takes it the way she did, we may be okay. If a few more people in here took it the way she did, that'd be all right, too.
Josh: Was that for me?
Toby: That was for me.
Mrs. Landingham: (about her new car) When you get inside, there's this --
Mrs. Landingham: How did you know?
Bartlet: It's the smell of freedom ... and the chemicals they treat your dashboard with.
Mrs. Landingham: You know I could beat you up anytime I want, sir.
Bartlet: Secret Service would have you down like a calf at a rodeo.
Leo: We're not going to stop, soften, detour, postpone, circumvent, obfuscate or trade a single one of our goals to allow for whatever extracurricular nonsense is coming our way in the next days, weeks and months.
Toby: When did we decide this?
Leo: Just now.
Reporter: You didn't answer my question.
C.J.: How about that.
Leo: Dessalines is in the trunk of the ambassador's car!
Dessalines, the name of the Haitian President-elect, is a possible reference to J.J. Dessalines, a Haitian military general.
