Goofs

Amy and Josh are debating a rider to a bill about abortion and Amy says to him "I also don't think you have a reproductive system" to which Josh agrees. And, of course, men do have reproductive systems. They don't, however, give birth - which was her point. See more »

I'm Marion Cotesworth-Hay!
29 November 2012 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

And the post-Seaborn era starts with a lift from...Marion Cotesworth-Hay! A dowdy new englander (Helen Slayton-Hughes) is organizing a boycott of Zoey's induction into the Daughters of the American Revolution, because Abbey's ancestor was a pirate. C.J. can't keep a straight face. Charlie refuses to stop pursuing Zoey. Amy gets liberally hazed her first day. A corporate whistle blower (the thoroughly competent Jeff Perry - WILD THINGS, NASH BRIDGES) uses his friendship with Toby to get immunity, a bit disingenuously. Is it a coincidence that Sorkin left his post as head writer only six episodes after Sam leaves? Probably. Did Sorkin only stay through season 4 to ease that transition? Probably not.
