The West Wing: Gone Quiet

When a United States submarine "goes quiet" of the coast of North Korea, Bartlet is forced to decide between contacting the enemy or launching a risky rescue. Meanwhile, Abbey learns that past malpractice suits against her might damage the President's criminal investigation; C.J. is thrilled when a presidential candidate is indecisive while speaking in public; and Toby meets with a committee about Congress' controversial funding of avant-garde artists.

Episode Quotes
Tawny: The artist destroys all his belongings in front of a Starbucks in Haight-Ashbury.
Sam: I've done that a couple of times ... didn't know there was funding for it.

C.J.: Why do you want to be president?
Bartlet: I've been thinking about that for the last few hours ... I almost had it.

Toby: Does $105 million mean anything to you?
Ginger: I'm a simple girl, Toby.
Toby: Yes, yes you are.

Leo: We've got to meet with Albie.
Bartlet: He's going to scold me. He's been at the State Department since Truman. He thinks I'm a kid and that he outranks me.
Leo: You'll be fine.
Bartlet: I've got to tell him I lost a submarine. Can I make something up like say "what if a friend of mine hypothetically...?"

Donna: That's why somebody wants to become President? Medical research and the internet?
Josh: She's got a point.
C.J.: Sometimes you get your face on a coin.

Josh: Why do you want to be President?
Bartlet: I don't.
Josh: Well, we'll put that in the hopper and show you a draft.
