Zoey Patricia Bartlet is the third and youngest daughter of President Josiah Bartlet and Dr. Abbey Bartlet.

Biography Edit

Zoey became romantically involved with presidential aide, Charlie Young. Their relationship continued intermittently, though the fact it was interracial prompted a white supremacist organization to target Young for assassination. The attack was unsuccessful, though both President Bartlet and Deputy Chief of Staff Josh Lyman were injured in the shooting.

Zoey attended Georgetown University and was briefly kidnapped by Qumari terrorists on the night of her graduation. This precipitated President Bartlet's invoking the 25th Amendment, transferring presidential authority to Speaker of the House, Glen Allen Walken, as Acting President. Later, in the sixth season, Charlie and Zoey are shown to have resumed their relationship, with Charlie even considering asking Zoey to marry him. No mention is made of the relationship, or her occupation, in the seventh and final season.



  • Georgetown University Graduate.

Notes Edit

  • Zoey's secret service codename was "Bookbag".

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Initially, Zoey's age was 19, but this was changed to 17.
