Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Richard Schiff hated the shuttle leak storyline, as he felt that Toby would never betray the President like that. He justified his character's actions by deciding that Toby was really covering for someone else.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Bartlet: But the one thought that hits the hardest is that this was somehow inevitable; that you've always been heading for this sort of crash-and-burn. That self-righteous superiority; not that you were smarter than everyone; that you were purer, morally superior.
      Toby: Due respect, sir, I don't think I'm morally superior to everyone.
      Bartlet: No, just to me.

    • Babish (to Toby): Someone should thank you for your service.

    • Bartlet You would seriously consider not getting married at the White House?
      Ellie: Where, at the moment, is the less pressing concern. There's another consideration that may need to take precedence, as far as scheduling goes.

    • Toby: Well, you certainly earned your fee today.
      Elana Waterman: I'm deeply gratified that you decided to heed my guidance.
      Toby No, I just meant it was the first time tonight he used the word 'please'.

    • Bartlet: Toby, when you walk out of here, there will be people out there, perhaps a great many, who will think of you as a hero. I just don't for a moment want you thinking I'll be one of them.

  • NOTES (1)

    • Alan Alda & John Spencer do not appear in this episode. Kristin Chenoweth, Dulé Hill & Janel Moloney also do not appear and are therefore uncredited.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Episode Title: "Here Today"

      The title "Here Today" refers the old saying "Here Today, Gone Tomorrow" highlighting the staffing changes that took place in both Bartlet's White House and the Santos/McGarry Campaign.
