West Wing - Which Commandment?
In the Pilot, Josh, CJ, and Toby are sitting with Mary Marsh and two older gentlemen. One of the gentlemen says that "honor thy Father" is the first commandment, Toby then tells him that he is wrong because Honoring thy parents is the third commandment. The President then comes in an tells them what the first commandment is, well he should have corrected Toby as well. The fourth commandment is the one that says you should "honor thy parents". Oops. I guess they forgot to read their bible. This is the best show on earth!!!

Hey, not every religion has the commandments in the same order. Some combine the first two, others separate the "you shall not covet your neighbor's goods and wife" into two different commandments - so you're both right. I've never heard of the "honor your father and mother" as being the 3rd, but i bet is in some form of Judaism or Christianity.

Actually, you might want to check your own bible because "Honor your father and mother" is the fifth commandment and "Observe the Sabbath by keeping it holy" is the fourth commandment. Deuteronomy 5:6-21 is one of the scriptures where the commandments are listed. Andria
