Trivia

First appearance in the series of Emily Procter playing Ainsley Hayes. See more »

Goofs

Ainsley is alerted to a call from the White House by the phone number 456-1414 showing up on her caller ID. White House phones will not show up on caller ID as anything more than the area code (though the recipient would know it was a White House call, since most blocked calls don't display the area code).

Quotes

Josh Lyman: No. You're listening to me, but you're not understanding me.
Toby Ziegler: No, I'm disagreeing with you. That doesn't mean I'm not listening to you or understanding what you're saying - I'm doing all three at the same time.

Sir?? Sir, you have interrupted me again!!

Ainslie! The debut of one of the show's most beloved characters. Emily Proctor would do twelve episodes as the spunky, conservative White House lawyer. How can a character this great be born of an episode this ham- handed?? Caricaturish republicans spouting amateurish dialogue...a plot line with Ainsley and C.J. that is embarrassingly contrived...here but for the grace of a story thread featuring Zakes Mokae (A DRY WHITE SEASON) as the leader of an AIDS-ravaged African country, would be the first sub-good episode in show history. After Josh and Toby figure out a way to get HIV medications to Africa more cheaply, President Nimbala finds out that he has been ousted in a coup. He returns home, and is shot getting off the plane. Ted McGinley (HAPPY DAYS, THE LOVE BOAT, MARRIED WITH CHILDREN, REVENGE OF THE NERDS) plays the suave, genial host of "Capital Beat", on which Ainslie skewers Sam.
