I was watching Season 3 of "The West Wing"(# the Greatest show on TV). Episode 9: Bartlet for America.
The premise is that Leo McGarry, the White House Chief-Of-Staff is
under an Congressional Hearing in relation to the President Hiding his MS
And he discusses his alcoholic Past with the Lawyer; below is the excerpt
Leo: My father was an alcoholic, his father was an alcoholic. So in my case...
Lawyer: ...Ain't nothing but a family thing.
Leo: That's right.
Lawyer: Who knows?
Leo: Josh Lyman and the President.
Lawyer: Why nobody else?
Lawyer: That's a little boy's answer.
Leo: I went to rehab, my friends embraced me when I got out. You relapse, it's not like that. "Get away from me," that's what it's like.
Can anyone explain to me what is Implied by that answer. Because. at first glance doesn't answer anything. Or is it something to be gleaned by yourself.
