Psychiatrist Stanley Keyworth (Adam Arkin), the man who treated Josh (Bradley Whitford) for trauma after the shooting incident, is now determined to find out the cause of President Bartlet's post-Iowa insomnia. Also weighing heavily on the proceedings is the possibility that Bartlet (Martin Sheen) will condemn Islamic fanaticism in his upcoming UN address. On this issue, Toby (Richard Schiff) clashes with his ex-wife, Andrea Wyatt (Kathleen York), a congresswoman and foreign policy expert. Elsewhere, C.J. (Allison Janney) asks Leo (John Spencer) to negotiate the release of a White House reporter who has been captured in Africa; Sam (Rob Lowe) quarrels with Republican lawyer Ainsley Hayes (Emily Procter) over matters of feminism; and Donna (Janel Moloney) considers accepting a more prestigious job.
