This episode takes its title from the Annual Catholic charity dinner named in honor of Al Smith. Al Smith was born and raised an Irish Catholic in the 4th ward of New York City. A Democrat, he was the first Catholic elected governor of any state and was the first Catholic to run for president. Known as The Happy Warrior he was less than happy when he only carried 8 states in the election. He then went on to serve as the public head of the company that built the Empire State Building. Many of the programs started by FDR in his first hundred days were copied directly from programs originated by Al Smith for New York State during his term as governor. 
- Margaret Hooper: They're crushing him like a grape.
- C.J. Cregg: He's doing fine.
