Goofs

Donna spends the day trying to get someone to change their vote to the president to makeup for her accidentally voting for Richie. She claims that her vote in Wisconsin is more valuable because the state is in play. In season 3 episode 13 "The two Bartletts" Donna tries to get out of jury duty the next day. Donna would need to be a resident of DC to be selected for jury duty, in turn she would vote in D.C. Not Wisconsin. See more »

Who's Officer Cupcake?
20 November 2012 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

As Bartlet wins in a landslide (and romances Abbey to candlelight, Dean Martin, and Commander-in-Chief innuendo), Sam watches the unthinkable happen...a deceased democrat win a heavily-republican district. Debbie's first scenes as Bartlet's new secretary are funny and seamless. Toby's ex-wife finally gets pregnant (using his sperm). He pressures her to re-marry, as she re-wins her congressional seat. Donna accidentally votes for Ritchie, and stands for six hours in the cold trying to get a republican to swap votes. A charming way to meet the charming Jack Reese (Christian Slater - HEATHERS, PUMP UP THE VOLUME), the stranger who finally says yes...just as he's on his way to assume his military duties at the White House. Even though a part of us wants him nowhere near Donna, he's perfect in his role. Bruno couldn't care less when a pollster takes undue credit for the victory...he's trying to get his post-victory mack on.
