[The West Wing] 1.07 "The State Dinner"

I might like this episode more than I have a lot of the ones that preceded it. There's a lot more going on in this episode than in some of the other ones. But really none of the episodes thus far, this one included, have caused me to fall in love.


I love and respect Toby a lot for his integrity, and yes his arrogance, but sometimes I really think he should know better.

Oh, Mandy. I love her a lot this episode. (Including for "You guys want to be alone?")

Oh, Bartlet.... And yes I love Abbey.

Sam continues to frustrate me.

I have sympathy for Donna, but I have difficulty liking her much -- which makes me sad, but the character they're creating just isn't my type at all.

The grey is not a bad look for CJ, but I think she looks better in the blue. I'm also not a huge fan of the reporter.

C.J.: It is fashioned with rubies and gold. Anything else? [No response.] Nothing on the nuclear test ban treaty? [More silence.] No? Okay. Thank you. [gets up and walks to the briefing podium, Josh following]
JOSH: C.J....
C.J.: Man alive, do I love it when In Style magazine is issued press credentials. Mirabella needed to know what kind of wine is being served with the fish course. So, it's a good thing I went to school for 22 years.
JOSH: What wine are we...?
C.J.: It's wine and you'll drink it.
JOSH: Okay.
