Goofs

A map in the Situation Room shows the disputed South Asian region of Kashmir. The map identifies the Pakistani-controlled portion of Kashmir as "Jamu" (sic) and the Indian-controlled portion as "Kashmir". Jammu (the correct spelling has two M's) is a region completely within the south western part of the Indian-controlled territory, which is why the official Indian name for the entire state is "Jammu and Kashmir". The Pakistani-controlled regions are known as "Azad Kashmir" and the "Northern Areas", and the Chinese regions are known as "Aksai Chin" and the "Trans-Karakoram Tract". The name "Kashmir" collectively refers to the entire territory, including the Pakistani-, Indian- and Chinese-controlled territory. See more »

Quotes

Lord John Marbury: When we had a particular problem with someone, one solution we would try is to make him a maharajah. That's a kind of a regional king. We would pay him off with an annual tribute and in return he would be loyal to the crown.
Leo McGarry: Lord Marbury, under our constitution the President is not empowered to create maharajahs.
Lord John Marbury: Yes, thank you for clearing that up, Leo. Having been educated at Cambridge and the Sorbonne I am, as you know, exceedingly stupid.

...in the 321st century
21 October 2012 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

On the eve of the State of the Union address, Bartlet collapses in the Oval. Abbey rushes home. Leo figures out that there's something they're not telling him...and the multiple sclerosis plot line, one of the most compelling in show history, is off to the races. Some strange magic is in the air, as Mallory kisses Sam in appreciation for his President's letter of support for Leo, then C.J. gets Danny into her office and kisses the hell out of him. The final scene is one of the best in show history, as Jed tells his secretary of agriculture (Harry Groener, BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER) what to do in case he has to assume the Presidency. As if that's not enough, we've also got a little Fitz and some Lord John M.
