** She also comes in utterly pale with no makeup and her hair pulled back in a ponytail. As Janel Maloney notes in the DVD commentary, "you know exactly what happened-she heard the news and threw clothes on and ran out the door."

* Whatever people may say about [[SeasonalRot season five]], the last sequence of "7A WF 83429", which cuts together scenes of the Bartlets and Charlie attending a private mass, Josh and Donna leaving the White House to see hundreds of tributes to Zoey, and the search for her continuing in the situation room, and is set to Lisa Gerrard's song "Sanvean", is heartbreaking for all the right reasons.

** Easy to miss, but the tremble in Toby's voice when he speaks to Andie and asks her to just come home.

* Most everything regarding [[spoiler:Leo's]] death, from Annabeth's reaction when she finds [[spoiler:him]] to the scene where she tells Josh the outcome to the funeral.
** A special mention has to go to Margaret quietly sobbing as she watches [[spoiler:his]] death being reported on the evening news.
** Also the very small moment of Lou greeting Josh with a hug when he returns from the hospital. The two of them usually bicker with each other and don't seem overly fond of one another but at that moment none of that matters.

* The season five episode "''the Benign Prerogative''". Donna, at Josh's behest, is going over 36 files of people who seek presidential pardon, all serving long prison time as a result of mandatory minimums in drug crimes. She meets with the family of one of these people - Donovan Morrisey - his mother and stepfather major contributors to the party. Over the course of the episode the President decides to pardon all candidates - except for Donovan, due to Bartlet and the senior staff worrying it might look like buying favours. They plan on pardoning him at a later time but just before the President gives the State of the Union Donna gets a call from Donovan's sister, telling her he took his own life. As the senior staff gather to deliver the news to Bartlet, Donna walks away. [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Josh goes after her]] and comforts her. She says she knows she needs to toughen up and not take these things to heat, prompting Josh to respond he hopes she'll continue to do just that.

* This little glimpse into Toby's past in "Shibboleth", when he reveals why he's been pushing the White House to start a fight over school prayer legislation:
-->'''Toby:''' I'll tell you why it should be front and centre. It's not the First Amendment. It's not religious freedom, it's not church and state, it's not abstract.\\
'''Leo:''' What is it?\\
'''Toby:''' [[IHaveThisFriend It's the fourth grader who gets his ass kicked at recess because he sat out the voluntary prayer at home room. It's another way of making kids different from other kids. And they're required by law to be there... that's why you want it front and centre: the fourth grader. That's the prize.]]\\
