Goofs

During the Red Mass, Vivaldi's Gloria is sung by the choir as a processional. However, in a Catholic service (like the Red Mass) the Gloria has a fixed place during the mass (after the Kyrie) and would never be used as a processional. See more »

Quotes

Claudia Jean 'C.J.' Cregg: I can't believe how many times I get asked what would be a win in the debates. At this point I feel like if - and only if - Ritchie accidentally lights his podium on fire does the President have a fighting chance.

Should I use sex as a tactic?
19 November 2012 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

How is this episode not about cancer? The President and staff attend a mass, along with all the leaders of congress. George Coe returns as Senator Stackhouse, whose issue-raising and tentative inclusion in the debates may split the democratic vote. The final scene between he and Jed, on the church steps, is a beaut. Blaming Israel for Shareef's death, the qumaris shoot down a plane containing their foreign minister (Malachi Throne, WEST WING's only direct link to the original STAR TREK, making him the only actor to appear on two of the three greatest shows of all time). Denied the number of debates they want, Sam and C.J. suggest a go-for-broke tactic, with just one no-holds debate. A tantalizing once-only appearance is made by Hilary Salvatore as staffer Emily, who sucks the air out of the room in a silly scene with Charlie.
