Storyline

Rumors circulate in Washington yet again about the state of Fidel Castro's health. As C.J. begins to look into the issue she uncovers some dark secrets regarding the United States' relationship with Cuba which appear to involve Leo, the President, and Kate Harper. Despite how closely guarded and potentially explosive this information is, a startlingly large number of government agencies and officials appear to know bits and pieces of the story. This results in undercover political maneuvering to avoid what is expected to be an enormous political disaster. Meanwhile, Charlie calls in different professionals to deal with a suspected termite problem in the White House. Written by Murray Chapman

Goofs

The pest controller says to Charlie, of termites, "you know these fellas outnumber us a thousand to one. Pile all them up, and all us up...ten times the weight of all the folks in the world". This would imply that the average weight of a human is only a hundred times the average weight of a termite, which is clearly wrong. In fact, that ratio is closer to ten million to one. There are no realistic estimates for the number of ants in the world, but though they vastly outnumber us, we seem to have them pipped on weight. See more »

Quotes

C.J. Cregg: You sure the country's ready for this?
Jed Bartlet: Who knows who's gonna be sitting here next? Who knows what will happen after Castro? All I know for sure is there's a moment here. Before I'm gone and he's gone, I am not going to let it pass.
