Josh: I was heading up to the residence. You coming?
CJ: I was just thinking about Leo sitting over there in that chair. Weird, isn't it? People are here one minute, and then they're not.
Leo: Yeah, it sounds like you're getting tripped up by 1783.
Charlie: Which is?
Leo: HR1783; it's a tax rebate from last year.
Charlie: Why would that affect my return for this year?
Leo: Did you get a tax rebate last year?
Leo: There's the answer.
Charlie: Where's the answer?
Leo: Your rebate came off of this year's taxes. That's how we paid for it.
Charlie: Hang on. The money I got back last year has to be paid for?
Charlie: That's not a rebate; that's an advance.
Leo: Well, technically, I guess.
Charlie: Not technically. This is like getting a Christmas bonus and having it deducted from your January paycheck.
Leo: This doesn't sound like very patriotic talk to me, Charlie.
Separation of Powers (5.7)
Donna: There was a guy named Matt Kelley and he was making $50,000 a year. His daughter got into Notre Dame.
Donna: So, the Bermuda Corporation gets a deduction when they buy off their CEO for a hundred million a year. Why not pass a break for a guy like Matt? You don't think so?
Angela: If his daughter had needed braces, would Josh and Toby have come up with a plan for universal orthodontia?
Donna: Not a chance, huh?
Angela: We can still get tax-deductible tuition. We can get a lot of things. We gotta get them to give it, that's all. How do you think we're doing?
Donna: Me? I don't -
Angela: You're an American citizen, you pay taxes, consume government services.
Donna: I think... our side has done a bad job explaining that what we're fighting for is important. It's not about abstract programs and endless acronyms, but real things that affect real people, like affording college.
Institutional Memory (7.21)
Toby: I've missed you.
CJ: Yeah, we had it good there for a while.
Toby: Yes, we did.
Let Bartlet Be Bartlet (1.20)
CJ: The Easter egg hunt and the Easter egg roll are two different things. The theme of this year's event is "Learning is Delightful and Delicious." As, by the way, am I.
Five Votes Down (1.4)
Leo: Mr. President, I thought you were staying in bed.
Bartlet: Oh, I feel fine.
Leo: Maybe you should get back to the residence.
Leo: I said, maybe you should get back to the residence. Maybe you should lie down.
Bartlet: Absolutely no need. I'm fine. What's going on here?
Sam: Nothing you need to concern yourself with, Mr. President. Merely a perception issue regarding Toby and the financial disclosure.
Bartlet: I like to roll up my sleeves and you know... get involved.
CJ: Mr. President, did you by any chance take your back pills?
Bartlet: I don't mind telling you, CJ, I was in a little pain there.
Leo: Which did you take, sir, the Vicodin or the Percocet?
Bartlet: I wasn't supposed to take 'em both?
