Episode Info

It's Thanksgiving time at the Bartlet White House, and the spirit of the holiday is in the air when a group of Chinese Christians wash up in the United States seeking asylum. As the president considers what to do with them, CJ has a struggle of her own on her hands when she's assigned the task of picking which of two turkeys will have its life spared in the traditional presidential pardon. Meanwhile, Charlie struggles to find a carving knife to fit the president's fickle taste and Leo protests against the proposed appointment of his sister to a high-profile government job.
