The West Wing: On the Day Before

With the State Department dinner nearing, Bartlet vetoes the "death tax" bill, throwing the staff into a frenzy when they learn that the House of Representatives will have enough votes to override the veto. Meanwhile, Josh talks to a governor who is debating running against Bartlet in the next Presidential election; Charlie is urged to ask for immunity in the upcoming testimony concerning Bartlet's non-disclosure; and C.J. singles out an entertainment reporter, Sherri Wexler, for retribution.

Episode Quotes
Josh: He can have a member try to attach an amendment to the override vote.
Donna: What kind of amendment?
Josh: Doesn't matter. To qualify for the estate tax repeal the estates have to have Astroturf.
Donna: And still it's hard to figure why Congress can't get anything done.

Bartlet: You know what we're starting with tonight?
Josh: No, sir.
Bartlet: Hot pumpkin soup with cheese gnocchi and a chèvre brioche.
Josh: Was anything you just said food?

Josh: I wouldn't know a spotted owl if he walked up and introduced himself.
