* Josh in "The Warfare of Genghis Khan".
--> Josh: Voyager, in case it's ever encountered by extra-terrestrials, is carrying photos of life on Earth, greetings in 55 languages and a collection of music from Gregorian chants to Chuck Berry. Including "Dark Was The Night, Cold Was The Ground" by '20s bluesman Blind Willie Johnson, whose stepmother blinded him when he was seven by throwing lye in is his eyes after his father had beat her for being with another man. He died, penniless, of pneumonia after sleeping bundled in wet newspapers in the ruins of his house that burned down. But his music just left the solar system.

** Worse still, anyone who knows anything about ships can tell as soon as Harold starts listing off the problems with the ship that there is no way they are getting out of it. The real kicker is when he notes that because of some of their system failures they are practically invisible, and they’re all but waiting to be run over and destroyed by the nearby aircraft carrier. Everyone in the room and most viewers at home knew at that point it was just about making sure this terrified crewman doesn’t die alone.

** Earlier still, Toby's return from the hospital to take charge of the message in the immediate aftermath of Zoe's kidnapping. He straight away redrafts Josh's rather boilerplate language into something much more personal and moving; ensures that nothing is going to be leaked and that the White House, not the intelligence agencies, will be doing the briefings; praises C.J.'s performance, sorts out who is going to do what, and then tells everyone to get to work. And ''then'', he fumblingly tells them that the reason he wasn't there earlier is that he was at the hospital because his kids were being born ten days earlier, and everyone is stunned. Toby is probably more upset than he's ever been, because of Zoe's kidnapping, but he's also happier than he's ever been. The emotions passing across his face would tear your heart out.

* Josh telling Toby in "Holy Night", that he "would give anything to have a living father who was a felon, or a sister with a past..."

** 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.
