    • Bartlet: It's Jed Bartlet, Mrs. Morello. I've got a few questions. When you taught Beowulf, did you make the kids read it in the original Middle English or did you use a translation? Morello : We used a translation, Mr. President. Bartlet : Okay. We're going to call that the James Bond version.

    • Bartlet: I love doing this. Charlie: Really? Bartlet: Yeah. Charlie: Filing tax returns? Bartlet: Yeah. Charlie: Okay. Bartlet: What? Charlie: I was just thinking about the plurality of Americans who made the decision to pull a lever that had your name next to it. Bartlet: Suckers.

    Trivia (2)

    • The reason a martini would be stirred is not to avoid chipping the ice, but to prevent air from being dissolved rapidly into the gin causing it to taste bitter. Regardless, James Bond prefers a vodka martini which is indeed supposed to be shaken so that it will get colder faster.

    • Bartlet says that Beowulf was originally in Middle English, but it was in fact originally written in Old English.
