      C.J: Yeah, that was a troubing moment but he had to get his napkins.

    • Abbey: (admiring a pearl necklace that Bartlet just gave her) These are just gorgeous.
      Bartlet: You can eat them too, they're gumballs.

    • Bartlet: (to Zoey's Secret Service Agent) Before I forget, if something comes up, and you're faced with the choice of killing the boyfriend or not killing the boyfriend--kill the boyfriend.
