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.

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.

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.
