The West Wing: War Crimes

Testimonies begin in the non-disclosure investigation and Donna is first to give her deposition to the House committee. There she is questioned by none other than Cliff, the Republican she's been dating. Bartlet and Vice President Hoynes argue over gun control when Bartlet asks his Vice President to speak at an anti-gun rally in Texas. Meanwhile, Leo and Alan Adamley, an Air Force General have it out over the War Crimes Tribunal; Sam is perplexed by legislation that would eliminate the use of the penny; and C.J. informs Toby that Will Sawyer, a reporter, overheard one of his comments that doesn't shed good light on the President.

Episode Quotes
Adamley: Sultan Bin Abu Azir ain't what he used to be. Last time I was in Kuwait he gave me a gold-inlaid Gadara sword originating from the Bin Hamar tribe.
Leo: What'd you get this time?
Adamley: Nothing.
Leo: Wanna go down to the Situation Room, blow 'em off the face of the earth?
Adamley: Yeah.

Sam: If you're in the middle of something, I can come back.
Adamley: We're eliminating genocide. What are you doing?
Sam: Eliminating the penny. So, I'll come back.

Bartlet: Texans don't like that you have the courage of your convictions?
Hoynes: They're not my convictions, they're yours.
Bartlet: Oh, yeah, I forgot.

Abbey: You are an oratorical snob.
Bartlet: Yes, and God loves me for it.
Abbey: You said he was sending you to hell.
Bartlet: For other stuff, not for this.

Bartlet: It sucked.
Abbey: You're talking about church.
Bartlet: Oh, like I'm not already going to hell.

Bartlet: It's not easy being my Vice-President, is it?
Hoynes: No, sir.
Bartlet: I wouldn't think so.
