Mike's successor as deputy mayor, Washington veteran Charlie Crawford, is late on his first day and finds hi s first job, settling a toll booth workers' strike, problematic as their spokesperson is a long-forgotten x of his who insists on closure, so Caitlin promises to coach him. The mayor misses Mike, so that's how he calls Charlie. The rest of the gang falls over each-other, desperate to get in the boss's good books, which in Paul's case is presumed hopeless, but Charlie proves easy. Written by KGF Vissers

What happened?
9 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What happened to Fox after the Goodbye episode? I mean, at the end of that episode it looked as though he would be making frequent appearances, but in this episode his name is only mentioned in a sarcastic and humorous tone, and refers to him only to put down Sheen. What happened? I've only seen it in reruns, so maybe something happened in the summer of 2000 that changed Fox's mind or maybe he never had in mind coming back? (I'm not sure if this contains spoilers, but it may if you haven't seen the Goodbye episode or this one). The love interest between Fox and Locklear is also conspicuously missing, as if the past 5 years between the beginning of the show and the Sheen era was just filler. Anyone have any insight on this mystery?
