It doesn't matter if most voters don't benefit, they all believe that someday they will. That's the problem with the American Dream, it makes everyone concerned for the day they're gonna be rich.

PRESIDENT JOSIAH "JED" BARTLET, "Ways and Means" (2001)

The President was at the debate site walking the stage. A podium is a holy place for him. He makes it his own, like it's an extension of his body. You ever see a pitcher work the mound so the dirt does exactly what his feet want it to do? That's the President. He sees it as a genuine opportunity to change minds, also as his best way of contributing to the team. He likes teams.

LEO McGARRY, "Bartlet for America" (2001)

I'm an alcoholic. I don't have one drink. I don't understand people who have one drink. I don't understand people who leave half a glass of wine on the table. I don't understand people who say they've had enough. How can you have enough of feeling like this? How can you not want to feel like this longer? My brain works differently.

LEO McGARRY, "Bartlet for America" (2001)

I like it when the guys tease me. It's an inadvertent show of respect that I'm on the team and I don't mind it when it gets sexual. And you know why? I like sex...I don't think that whatever sexuality I may have diminishes my power. I think it enhances it.

AINSLEY HAYES, "Night Five" (2002)

In my house, anyone who used one word when they could have used ten just isn't trying hard.

PRESIDENT JOSIAH "JED" BARTLET, "Dead Irish Writers" (2002)

It's an election year...we'd rather people didn't exercise common sense.

PRESIDENT JOSIAH "JED" BARTLET, "20 Hours in America" (2002)

More than any time in recent history, America's destiny is not of our own choosing. We did not seek, nor did we provoke, an assault on our freedom and our way of life. We did not expect, nor did we invite, a confrontation with evil. Yet the true measure of the people's strength is how they rise to master that moment when it does arrive.

PRESIDENT JOSIAH "JED" BARTLET, "20 Hours in America" (2002)

How can justice that has to be served in secret be justice?

JORDAN KENDALL, "College Kids" (2002)

I'm a fan. I'm a sports fan. I'm a music fan. And I'm a Star Trek fan. All of them. But here's what I don't do: Let's list our ten favorite episodes. Let's list our least favorite episodes. Let's list our favorite galaxies. Let's make a chart to see how often our favorite galaxies appear in our favorite episodes. What Romulan would you most like to see coupled with a Cardassian and why? Let's spend a weekend talking about Romulans falling in love with Cardassians and then let's do it again. That's not being a fan. That's having a fetish. And I don't have a problem with that except that you can't bring your hobbies into work, okay? Except on Star Trek holidays.

JOSH LYMAN, "Arctic Radar" (2002)

They love us. I think they really like it when we come to town. When we were there last month, we were working the crowd and some young boys, worried, possibly, that I couldn't afford fruits and vegetables on a government salary, tossed me some of their own.

CLAUDIA JEAN "C.J." CREGG, "The California 47th" (2003)

You trapped people at Disneyland, told the French they could stick a loaf of bread up their ass, had a meeting with a Communist...and things are looking up 'cause my new campaign director just made bail?

SAM SEABORN, "Red Haven's on Fire" (2003)

He's a Democrat from Idaho. They use Democrats for target practice up there. Sometimes he's got to lean to the right.

LEO McGARRY, "Constituency of One" (2003)
