Goofs

Sam tells Charlie that the Steel Worker's Organizing Committee has a new name - The AFL-CIO. In fact, the SWOC disbanded in 1942, and was incorporated into the newly formed United Steel Workers of America union, which was a member of the CIO. The AFL & CIO merged in 1955. See more »

onomatopoetically, sounds right

The unassuming start of the most awesome four-episode run in the history of the show. A new Russian President, caught between ideals and conservative hardliners, communicates a major initiative through a protocol meeting between his aides and Sam. One of the negotiators is played by irresistible heavy Ian McShane (DEADWOOD, SEXY BEAST). Leo and Jed fret over a recall disaster that befalls a major computer company. They give its CEO (the uber-wonderful Peter Scolari - BOSOM BUDDIES, NEWHART) an unorthodox bailout. Then, in the final minutes, the quiet jolt of adrenaline arrives, in the form of secret service agent Simon Donovan (Mark Harmon - SUMMER SCHOOL, CHICAGO HOPE, NCIS), who has been assigned to protect C.J. after she receives death threats. They have an instant, electric Lucy/Desi chemistry.
