West Wing Wisdom

In episode 2x04 In This White House, Toby Ziegler, Deputy Communications Director, meets with President Nimbala, President of Equatorial Kundu, and some pharmaceutical companies about the AIDS crisis in Africa :

You talk to me about corruption. What are your annual sales of Fluconazole alone?

A billion dollars.

ALAN (represents a pharmaceutical company)
I don't understand your point, sir.

I think President Nimbala's saying that there's more money in giving a white guy an erection than curing a black guy of AIDS.
