I felt like popping a bottle of something myself during the cold open, really was nice to see them get a big win that they so richly deserve(and need). And it got even better after that,
Sam: Now we're gonna go in there and we're gonna watch CJ do The Jackal, and believe me if you haven't seen CJ do The Jackal, than you haven't seen Shakespeare the way it's meant to be done.
I concur, though I might give up getting to watch it for Malory. Seeing Toby in such a good mood was nice, and a little odd.
Toby: You on the other hand should turn that frown upside down.
Margaret: I'm sorry?
Toby: Let a smile be your umbrella, Margaret.
Margaret: Okay, now you're scaring the crap out of me Toby.
Leave it to Mandy to find a way to ruin it with her panda bear plan. Bartlet didn't have much time in this episode but he still killed it when he was talking about George Washington to Charlie. Josh's meeting with Breckenridge was interesting, discussing reparations, I agree its the kind of thing that's never going to stop being debated.
Great getting to see the team have something to celebrate, and the plot kept me interested through out the episode.
