"The Al Smith Dinner" is episode 138 of "The West Wing". An independent Republican party organisation releases an attack ad against Matt Santos concerning his voting record on abortion. Arnold Vinick wants the party to condemn the ad, before the entire campaign turns negative. Both candidates seriously consider their positions on abortion, and it is revealed that Santos is actually pro-life.

The real Al Smith Dinner is a fundraiser held for Catholic Charities and a regular stop on the presidential campaign trail.
