Trivia

The Equatorial Kundu story line and its atrocities are based on several real life African civil wars, notably Rwanda (1990-1994), Sierra Leone (1991-2002) and Mozambique (1977-1992). See more »

Goofs

During his conversation with Asst. Secretary of State for Public Affairs Brice Lilley, Will Bailey refers to the non-existent "clause in Article One that says not every president gets the full powers of Commander-in-Chief." Article One deals with the creation of the Legislative Branch. Any clause dealing with presidential powers would be in Article Two, which deals with the creation of the Executive Branch. See more »

Quotes

President Josiah 'Jed' Bartlet: Why is a Kundunese life worth less to me than an American life?
Will Bailey: I don't know, sir, but it is.

I don't know your name, but are you asking me out on a date?
27 November 2012 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

A fine episode that lacks sharpness. As the staff prepares for the inauguration (and the speechwriting thereof), tensions mount as genocide erupts in Africa. The high point is an hysterical scene between Will and Asst. Sec. of State for Public Affairs Bryce Lilly (Granville Van Dusen - SOAP, JUDGING AMY). Malina's strained respect is the perfect foil for Van Dusen's unctuous snobbery. Will also has a great scene with Jed. In the big picture, Malina will never quite fully leave Sam's shadow, but that's of course no fault of his own. Danny returned several episodes ago, but this is the first one in which he REALLY returns, in an office scene wherein C.J. demonstrates what she would do to "have" him.
