"The Long Goodbye" is episode 78 of The West Wing. Due to its unconventional story located mostly outside of the White House, it is the first episode of the entire series not to feature Martin Sheen as President Josiah Bartlet or Janel Moloney as Donna Moss. John Spencer appears in the background of one scene in the role of Leo McGarry, but he does not talk.
C. J. Cregg goes home to Dayton—and finds herself in the middle of an achingly sad family crisis—in this poignant change-of-pace episode. She's making the trip to speak at her 20th high-school reunion, but when she arrives at her father's house, she discovers that his new wife (her old English teacher) has left him. That is troublesome enough, but the fact that her father has Alzheimer's makes it almost unbearably heartbreaking. C.J. does find a soulmate at Dayton's airport, though, a classmate named Marco, who was a punk rocker in high school and now repairs watches.
