Goofs

When Leo and Toby are discussing the quality of speech writers Leo notes an error in Toby's speech where he mixes up FEMA for FHA. Leo then goes on to say "Yah, 'cause FEMA doesn't insure home loans, they don't insure anything. They're the people who come in after a tornado." In fact, FEMA runs the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). So, Leo has it half right, they don't insure home loans. See more »

No, but could you tell me some more about Jackie Robinson?
26 November 2012 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

A female pilot faces charges for disobeying an order to cease a romance with an inferior officer - an order that never would have been given to a male. Women's groups (and all the women of the White House) are up in arms, as the senior staff dances around the issue. Some prime Fitz, and some nice Amy. Sam is alarmed to find that Will won't lead his campaign, but he makes lemonade by diverting Will to the White House, where he knows Toby is getting nowhere with the inauguration speech, but extremely reluctant to have anyone replace Sam. Will and Toby reject the matchmaking, until they strip all politeness away. It's Josh Malina's finest scene in WW history - before he's even an official regular. The Donna/Jack romance begins in earnest, as she gets Josh to talk her up. The underlying discomfort he feels is so skillfully buried, it feels like only the audience is privy to it. Some prime Bartlet comedy as U.N. diplomats try to get out of paying parking tickets.
