Goofs

When Toby and Will argue about the car manufacturers' ad against improved gas mileage Toby says "And that Mom was worried 'cause Dad's hauling a yard sale up Kilimanjaro". His mouth moves before you hear anything and the acoustics of the audio sound different. Clearly the line was overdubbed. See more »

Quotes

Claudia Jean 'C.J.' Cregg: The farmers are victims of this Republican Congress.
Joe Quincy: I don't get a vote in the US House of Representatives, but I do go to the grocery store. I know that food is cheaper, and I know that when life expectancy goes up, that's not victimizing undertakers.
Claudia Jean 'C.J.' Cregg: Well argued, though I do hate you and everything you stand for.

Stu Winkle?
1 December 2012 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

On his first day, counsel Joe Quincy uncovers a White House security leak that leads to the Vice President. A torrid scandal forces Hoynes to resign. Powerful work between Matheson, Sheen, and Spencer. Cassie and the Laurens help Will conceptualize a political ad. C.J. has some snappy repartee with Mr. Perry, and talks to Stu Winkle (the greatest unseen voice in show history...the fact that the actor's name is Sam Pancake is an unexpected bonus we're not worthy of). Toby buys a house for Andy, and proposes to her once more. In one of the most poignant Toby scenes ever, she rejects him because he's too sad and angry. We, like he, thought she was just playing hard to get. Searing.
