Goofs

President Bartlet promises the Secretary of Agriculture that next year, during the State of the Union, the Surgeon General will be given the duty of being the one person in the Order of Succession who will not attend. The Surgeon General is not in the order of succession. The only non-Secretary in the Cabinet who is in the order of succession is the Attorney General. See more »

...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.
