Donna: The turkeys came.
CJ: So Carol said.
Donna: Josh and Toby and Sam said they should go in your office.
Donna: These are the turkeys.
CJ: The turkeys for what?
Donna: You weren't here last year.
Donna: Over Thanksgiving. You were sick.
Donna: Every year on Thanksgiving, the President pardons a turkey.
CJ: He pardons a turkey.
Donna: Yeah, and it's your event, so -
CJ: Why are there two?
Donna: I'm sorry?
CJ: Why are there two turkeys?
Donna: Customarily, the Press Secretary decides -
Donna: Which of the two finalists is more photogenic. Their names -
CJ: I don't want to know their names.
Donna: This one's Eric and this one's Troy.
CJ: Eric and Troy.
CJ: And I'm to choose the more photogenic of the two to receive a Presidential pardon.
CJ: Okay, I have actually a Masters degree from the University of California at Berkeley.
Donna: That's a good school.
Donna: They eat grain or really whatever's lying around, and Troy doesn't like to be touched.
CJ: Okay. I'd like to be alone now.
The Indians in the Lobby (3.7)
Bartlet: They want the nickel and dime stuff, I'll tell you one thing we can do.
Charlie: What's that, sir?
Bartlet: This time of the year there should be a hotline you can call with questions about cooking turkey. A special 800 number where the phones are staffed by experts.
Charlie: There is.
Bartlet: What do you mean?
Charlie: The Butterball hotline.
Bartlet: Butterball has a hotline?
Charlie: Yeah. It's an 800 number, the phones are staffed by experts.
Bartlet: Are you kidding me?
Bartlet: God, I'm sorry, I love my country.
Enemies Foreign and Domestic (3.18)
Bartlet: The marketplace will take care of Antares.
Leo: The marketplace will kill Antares.
Bartlet: That's what's supposed to happen.
Leo: It's not like it's unprecedented, sir. We helped out steel.
Bartlet: That was an industry that was hurt by unfair trade practices. Antares was hurt by their own carelessness.
Leo: A loan guarantee doesn't cost the taxpayers a nickel.
Bartlet: Unless they go under. And either way we've just said "We're open for business."
Leo: For a corporate icon that feeds into tech companies, computers, aerospace. The ripple effects, workers losing jobs, it's a blue chip stock that's in every major -
Bartlet: They were huge contributors! How the hell am I supposed...They were huge contributors!
Leo: Carelessness doesn't have to exist for a mistake to be made.
Leo: You said it was carelessness and I don't believe carelessness has to exist for a mistake to be made. Jake was a contributor, and he's never asked for a favor, not even now. He was a contributor 'cause he knows us, and we know him. And we know that if a mistake happened in design or production at Antares it wasn't shoddy, it wasn't on the cheek. You know how many chips have acted up so far? One. Dollars to donuts, he could have gotten away with it. But he wanted to warn people they may have a problem before - I don't even know what happens when eighty million computers stop working right. But tell me this isn't exactly how we want American businesses to behave. I know it doesn't look good, he's a friend of ours. But there is a reason he's a friend of ours.
