* Josh combines this with a CrowningMomentOfAwesome in Season 1's ''Mandatory Minimums''; Bartlet is about to announce a new policy initiative in a speech. Prominent Republicans have promised that, if he does, they'll force through a legislative agenda that will make him cry. As Bartlet makes the speech, everyone counsels Josh - who is about to be bombarded with threats and attacks - not to panic. On cue, as Bartlet makes the announcement, a Republican Senator irately calls Josh, who answers his phone and before the Senator can even speak, nonchalantly says:
--->'''Josh''': Hey Senator? Why don't you take your legislative agenda and shove it up your ass. ''[Hangs up]'' Turns out I was fine.

-->'''Margaret''': You don't usually say, "Hey there, Margaret."
-->'''Toby''': [''chuckles''] What do I usually say?
-->'''Margaret''': You usually growl something inaudible.
-->'''Toby''': Not today.
-->'''Margaret''': I see.
-->'''Toby''': You, on the other hand, should turn that frown upside down.
-->'''Margaret''': I'm sorry?

** In the same episode, the running gag of President Bartlet being told by everyone who works for him not to display an antique map of the Holy Land circa 1790 in the West Wing because "it doesn't recognise Israel", despite having been drawn centuries before Israel even existed. Finally, Bartlet in frustration turns to someone who he believes will back him up:
--->'''Bartlet:''' Let me ask you something; you might be the last sane voice around here...\\
'''Leo:''' Hang on, before I forget; that map Charlie gave you? Make sure you don't put it where people can see it.\\
'''Bartlet:''' ... I don't believe this.\\
'''Leo:''' Recognising Israel's a pretty hot button, wouldn't you say?\\
'''Bartlet:''' In ''Lebanon'', not here! It's not like I'm thinking "God, I was ''gonna'' recognise Israel, but now that I've seen this map..."

* At the beginning of "The Two Bartlets", Amy Gardner swings by Josh's apartment early one morning, where the two have a rather flirtatious conversation about, among other things, how many times Amy has visited or stayed over at Josh's apartment, and whether Amy is going to be calling Josh immediately after she leaves. Immediately as she leaves, Josh picks up the phone, assuming it to be Amy:
--> '''Josh:''' Time number one was on the steps of my apartment when you kissed me. It was snowing. Time number two was when you came over after the State of the Union. Time number three was at your house when you put on your bootleg tape of the [[Music/TheRollingStones Stones]] at Wembley Stadium and put on your feather boa and sang "Honky-Tonk Woman". Time number four [[NoodleImplement involved a variety of hosiery]]--\\
''[Cut to Leo's office, where Leo is listening to all of this impassively while writing something]''\\
'''Leo:''' Josh, I'm gonna stop you right here, okay?\\
'''Josh:''' ... Leo.\\
'''Leo:''' Yep.\\
'''Josh:''' Anybody else in the office?\\
''[Cut to a wider shot revealing Margaret standing next to Leo's desk]''\\
'''Margaret:''' Hey Josh.\\
'''Josh:''' Hey... Margaret.

* Leo's recurring frustration over a certain misprint he believes is in the ''New York Times'' crossword puzzle:
-->'''Leo:''' Margaret, will you please get in touch with the ''New York Times'' crossword editor and tell them that seventeen across is wrong, and that "Gaddafi" is spelt with an 'H' and two 'D's and isn't a seven-letter word for anything?\\
'''Margaret:''' Is this for real, or is this just funny?\\
'''Leo:''' Apparently, it's neither.\\
''[Later]''\\
'''Leo:''' ''[On the phone]'' Yes, seventeen across is wrong. You're spelling his name wrong. ''[Leo gets increasingly irate]'' What's my name? My name doesn't matter. I'm just an ordinary citizen who relies on the ''Times'' crossword for stimulation. And I'm telling you, I've met the man twice, and I've recommended a preemptive Exocet missile strike against his air force, so I think I know how to -- !\\
'''CJ:''' Leo.\\
'''Leo:''' They hung up on me. Every time!\\
'''CJ:''' That's almost hard to believe.
