Let Bartlet Be Bartlet

Because you can't have too many sports metaphors, Leo tells everyone, "Our ground game isn't working, we're gonna put the ball in the air. If we're gonna walk into walls, I want us running into 'em." Josh, speaking for the confused portion of the audience, asks, "What are you saying?" Leo directs Josh to say that the Prez has named his FEC nominees. The soundtrack trills with excitement. Leo says that while they'll lose some battles, and maybe the next election, "We're not gonna be threatened by issues. We're gonna put them front and center. We're gonna raise the level of public debate in this country, and let that be our legacy." I had to review this section a few times to hear everything because I kept snickering. Leo asks, "Does that sound all right to you, Josh?" Josh thinks for a minute, then says, "I serve at the pleasure of the President of the United States." C.J. says, "I serve at the Pleasure of the President," neglecting to mention which President, perhaps to save time. Sam says, "I serve at the pleasure of President Bartlet," so none of you other Presidents better expect any help from Sam. Against all of his acting instincts, which are screaming, "Save yourself! Kansas doesn't have this much corn!" Toby finally says, "I serve at the pleasure of the President." ["At this point, I wish to remind you all that Strega wrote this recap, not me, and you should direct your grievances to her." - deborah] Everyone looks at each other smugly until Leo directs them, "Let's get in the game." Everyone marches away, and Leo stops to look at the Prez before we fade out.
