Trivia

The last Congressman on Leo McGarry's list at the outdoor restaurant is "Sugarbaker", a reference to Suzanne Sugarbaker of "Designing Women" and its spin-off "Women of the House" where the character was elected to Congress. See more »

Goofs

When Leo confronts the congressional staffers he says that Vicodin and Percocet are Schedule II drugs, in the same legal category as opium. Percocet is Schedule II, but Vicodin is in the slightly lower Schedule III. See more »

Bartlet throws down the gauntlet by naming two reformers to the Federal Election Commission. The debut of Kathleen York as Andrea, Toby's ex-wife. She's fun and spontaneous, and a perfect foil. Al Keifer and Joey Lucas spend time at the White House, providing numbers on Bartlet's campaign against racist drug laws. The Josh/Joey adorableness at its peak. The wonderful Bruce Weitz (Belker, HILL STREET BLUES) growls out a delightful Senate Majority Leader. Leo and Toby have a bang-up scene telling opposition staffers with bosses who have drug records in their families, that hypocrisy won't be tolerated. Another classic WEST WING New Jersey reference.
