Sam slept with a final-appearance call girl
26 October 2012 | by (Estero Island) – See all my reviews

Polling results on favorability are anxiously awaited. On the eve of his prostitute friend's law school graduation, Sam is paparazzi-stalked and photographed giving her a present. Toby sticks up for him. It's Lisa Edelstein's last appearance as Laurie; is there anyone who didn't hope we'd get more? Leo schmooze-intimidates hyper-nervous F.E.C. commissioner Barry Haskell (Austin Pendleton - THE MUPPET MOVIE, MY COUSIN VINNIE). To make room on the F.E.C., Bartlet recalls an ambassador (Lawrence Pressman, DOOGIE HOWSER, M.D.) who is having an illicit affair. His scene while nervously waiting with Charlie, with whom he has a minor history, is classic, as is Jed's "intuitive" repartee with Charlie. An hysterically classic scene rolls by between Jed and a redneck, tell-it-like-it-is senator (David Huddleston - BLAZING SADDLES, SANTA CLAUS, THE BIG LEBOWSKI).
