Trivia

The company that Eileen works for, and which she eventually sues for sexual discrimination, is referred to throughout as "D,C and H." We learn those letters stand for "Dewey, Conham, and Howe" - an ancient joke-name for a law firm (along with its variations "Dewey, Cheatam and Howe" and "Cheatam and Steele"). See more »

Awful, Revisionist history-banal-trite infested-Pathos...etc..

Dont waste your time with this pathetic NBC attempt to boost lagging ratings, it is very much a Hackneyed rif-off of Forest Gump-type rememberances and pathos driven, late baby boomer sentimentality. Yuck! Even the actors are B A D, way too old to play college kids; not to mention the annoying and obvious 'Ally MacBeal'-'Melrose Place' type personalities and pretty bourgeoisie faces here. Vapid and Insulting. Click over to History channel instead.
