The West Wing

Shibboleth - S2-E8

Question: Right before Toby asks CJ if she wants to come over for Thanksgiving, he calls her Toscanini. What does Toscanini mean?

Chosen answer: Arturo Toscanini (1867 - 1957) was an Italian born conductor who was well known for being authoritarian and a bully. Perhaps this is a reference to CJ's commanding nature?

These are enrollment forms, not application forms - it's extremely unlikely that they were filled out over a year before she started school.
