All of Senator Avery's (Nick Nolte) lines, except for sparse words or lines in response to conversation, are real quotes from politicians. See more »
At one point, Senator Avery mentions the people of "my district" but as a Senator, he doesn't have a district as such. A Senator's "district" is the entire state. It is Representatives that have districts. See more »

Give her a chance, she'll steal your heart and soul
This movie has grown on me immensely. The first time I saw it, it struck me poorly. I didn't like the plot or characters. I've seen it twice since then. I was surprised to find how funny it was a second time. Truth be told, Trixie is the sweetest detective ever written. She's obsessed with the truth and lives by no other code, solving the case almost by accident. There is a sexy all star cast to back her up and they all play magnificently. The real joke of the movie is Trixie's ability to get well known sayings wrong, which is explained by her injury as a child from a bowling ball on the head (mentioned very quickly in a hospital scene). She says things like, "Stop right there where you are in your tracks!" Her timing is perfect and Ms. Watson's performance is endearing. Good show, all around.
