The West Wing: The Women of Qumar

C.J. goes up against the rest of the staff, including the President, over whether or not to publicize a mad cow disease outbreak. Later, C.J. takes a negative stance on the administration's decision to renew the air base lease in Qumar, a country known for its poor treatment of women. Meanwhile, Josh works with a women's group lobbyist concerned with the wording of a treaty concerning prostitution; Sam deals with a lawsuit against the administration by a woman angry with Bartlet's remarks about a national seat belt law; and Toby meets with WWII veterans protesting a Pearl Harbor exhibit at the Smithsonian

Episode Quotes
Josh: Amy Gardner's always irate about something. I wouldn't give it a lot of thought.

Bartlet: Did the Celtics win last night?
Charlie: No, they got crushed.
Bartlet: 'Kay, when I say 'Did they win?' you can just say yes or no.
Charlie: They got pretty well crushed.

C.J.: You know, if I was living in Qumar, I wouldn't be allowed to say 'Shove it up your ass, Toby,' but since I'm not: Shove it up your ass, Toby!

Amy: Are you dating your assistant?
Josh: No.
Amy: 'Cause I heard you might be.
Josh: I'm not.
Amy: Are you dating Joey Lucas?
Josh: No.

Amy: Water balloon!
Josh: What are you, like 15?
