Trivia

In the SitRoom, Leo asks, 'Let's go around the table one more time. Where are we with this? What kind of day has it been?' 'What kind of day has it been?' has been the title of the first season finale for Sorkin's Sports Night, The West Wing, and Studio 60 On the Sunset Strip. See more »

Goofs

The presidential oath is not taken by the Vice President upon the 25th Amendment's incapacity provision being invoked. An Acting President is not the same as President. The former merely exercises the powers and duties of the President, without actually holding the office of President. See more »

She threw him like he was a bag of potato chips!
1 December 2012 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

The run of non-great episodes that marked the second half of season 4, is resolutely over. As Danny prepares to go public with the truth about Shareef's assassination, intelligence loses track of a terrorist sleeper cell. After rejecting Toby's proposal, Andy's water broke. Ayre Gross (SOUL MAN, ELLEN) plays her wonderfully cheeky doctor. Donna explains Josh to Amy...making Amy realize what we all already knew. And in the most powerful payoff to seeds sown seasons ago imaginable, Zoey prepares to go to France with her smarmy boyfriend. She gets a new security detail, headed by Agent Wesley (a wonderful two-episode appearance by Taye Diggs - CHICAGO, HOW STELLA GOT HER GROOVE BACK). At a nightclub graduation party, Zoey is given ecstasy. One of her agents gets a bullet in the head, and Zoey is kidnapped. The song "Angel", by Massive Attack, provides the emotional texture for one of the most startling, disturbing sequences in show history.
