For Catholics, "Honor Thy Father and Mother" is the Third Commandment -- and Bartlet is Catholic.

According to this page, that is traditionally the fifth amendment and in Lutheranism and Roman Catholicism is the fourth amendment. I can't find anything legitimate (other than this episode) to suggest that it is the third amendment.--Tim Thomason 22:53, 28 August 2006 (UTC)
As a lifelong Cathloic I can assure you that it is not the third commandment, as the first three commandments in Catholic teaching are about man and God, while the final seven are about man and man (meaning something directed at elders could not be until the fourth ammendment). - User:Willo 65.43.84.98 04:07, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

Hi,

could anybody tell me what "A3C3" means? It obviously refers to a bill or a law, but I'm not sure what the "A" oder the numbers stand for. Does anybody no? Feel free to contact me directly s.leunig@uni-jena.de. Thanks!

Florida Governor Edit

"The Governor of Florida is named as Pat Thomas, but later on the series it is established that Robert Ritchie is Governor of Florida, having been elected in 1996."

Is there anything in the episode (this one or whenever "later on the series" is) that prevents the possibility that Gov. Ritchie was elected to non-consecutive terms? MrItty 19:43, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
