Trivia

The charge d'affairs at the Italian embassy has the same name as a one-episode character from Aaron Sorkin-written Sports Night (1998). In the previous appearance (Sports Night: How Are Things in Gloca Morra? (1999)), Alberto Fedrigotti was a tennis player playing a five-set match against Pete Sampras. See more »

Goofs

Josh and Leo refer to the Dekalb County DA, pronouncing Dekalb with the "L," but in Georgia, it's pronounced "De-Kab'." The "L" is silent. See more »

Finally, an episode with native Americans as a theme (yes, there actually are one or two of them left). Two tribal representatives (Gary Farmer and Georgina Lightning) who have been waiting fifteen years for a judicial determination stage a stand-in in the lobby. A nervous C.J. has to convince them to leave. Powerful and moving. Josh is forced to defend Georgia's death penalty for minors to an Italian diplomat. More strong work from Mr. Gianelli. Why does WW always loose its best comedic barrages on Thanksgiving? As Toby listens, Jed makes an hysterical, anonymous call to the Butterball hotline, for cooking tips. Bethersonton. Baharnd. Brilliant.
