Storyline

A rapidly-escalating international crisis involving Iran and the UK requires C.J. to wake the President, triggering a confrontation with Abbey about allowing him enough rest to properly manage his MS. British Ambassador Lord John Marbury is summoned, and proceeds to wander the halls looking for "Gerald" while threatening to bomb Iran. Toby and Professor Lawrence Lessig meet with a delegation from Belarus to discuss a new constitution, and disagree on whether to base it on a parliamentary or presidential system. The latest Miss World makes a traditional visit to the White House to discuss a cause. Written by Murray Chapman

Trivia

When Korean Air flight 007 was mistakenly shot down in 1983 by the Soviet Union, aides of elderly President Reagan chose to not wake him up. See more »

Goofs

During their phone call the President addresses the British PM as "Madam Prime Minister". While this is obviously an analogue of "Mr. President" the correct form of address for the PM (regardless of gender) is simply "Prime Minister" with no prefix. See more »
