* EstablishingCharacterMoment: In [=SE01=] E03 "A Proportional Response", Toby is enraged when a hostile Democratic congressman questions the President's patriotism and hints that people in his district want Bartlet dead; however, Leo reminds him that they can't arrest the congressman just for being mean. So, Toby manoeuvres himself into a position where the White House press corps ask him about the congressman's remarks, and casually replies that the Secret Service investigates all death threats made against the President, and it's White House policy not to comment, thereby a.) sending a reminder to the congressman that you threaten the President of the United States at your peril, and b.) politically emasculating the congressman by depicting him as a irresponsible and borderline criminal wack job.

** Leo's instincts are less overt than his best friend's, but he is not any less caring. He personally welcomed and oriented [[BlondeRepublicanSexKitten Ainsley Hayes]] into the White House, and reinstated the girl who turned over his drug-treatment files to his political opponents.

* BenevolentBoss: He even allowed the staffer who leaked his history of painkiller addiction to keep her job after he finds out why she did it.[[note]]The other characters assume that she did it because she was believed to have a crush on Hoynes and wanted to gain favour with him, but on talking to her, Leo finds out that her father was an alcoholic and she was genuinely frightened at the prospect of so much power being in the hands of someone with Leo's history of substance abuse. He tells her that although she's caused them a lot of problems, he thinks she was brave to do what she did.[[/note]
