The West Wing: H. Con-172

Leo rejects Congressional Oversight Committee's offer that would end the investigation into Bartlet's non-disclosure of his illness. The rest of the staff deals with a revealing book published by a former White House photographer. Meanwhile, Josh plots to meet with Amy Gardner, an attractive women's rights leader; and Bartlet decides to give Charlie a 1709 map of Palestine as a gift, but the staff warns him of the political ramifications of doing so since the map does not include the nation of Israel.

Episode Quotes
Larry: I'm Larry, he's Ed.
C.J.: I usually don't know that.

Josh: Press hold, and I will pick up the phone in my office.
Donna: I'm sorry, how does a telephone work again?

Leo: You think I am so desperate to save my ass I'm going to roll over on Jed Bartlet? I take a bullet for the President. He doesn't take one for me.

Leo: This is five hundred and thirty-five Congressmen and Senators standing up and saying the President lied and should ashamed of himself. And this is us, standing up and saying 'You're right.' This would be the first time in history a President has been censured. Congress isn't talk radio - it's the seat of democracy, their opinion matters, and their condemnation doesn't have to come with handcuffs to be devastating to this President. That is the force and effect. And it's not gonna happen 'cause of me.

Bartlet: I'm really not going to talk to you about my underwear.
Sam: That's ... disappointing, Mr. President.
