Trivia

Mary-Louise Parker appears for the first time as Amy Gardner, but this isn't the first time she and Bradley Whitford appear on the screen together. They both played in the movie The Client (1994). See more »

Goofs

The F-117 is mentioned as part of an arms package to Qumar in exchange for base rights. Considering it spent much of its early career as classified and even in real life never had any foreign users, this is highly unlikely. See more »

They're beating the women, Nancy.
17 November 2012 | by (Estero Island) – See all my reviews

The U.S. agrees to sell weapons to Qumar, a country that brutally abuses women. The White House men hide from the women. A C.J. top-five entry. The debut of Mary-Louise Parker (WEEDS, FRIED GREEN TOMATOES) as Amy Gardner, women's issues lobbyist. In 23 episodes from now until the end of the run, she never misses a beat. A mercenary Earth goddess with a razor tongue. She and Josh have a high-powered debate on prostitution. They go on to share some of the most hysterical, resonant romantic moments in the history of the show...all while a part of you silently screams for him to get back to Donna. It's a fine line producers have to walk, when introducing a new romantic interest for a character the audience is aching to see with someone else. They have to be compelling...but only to a point. If the chemistry is too good, the larger arc is derailed. If it's too flaccid, the romance is just an obvious stalling tactic. No matter how good the performers and writing are, it's ultimately a crapshoot...but Amy couldn't have been more perfect.
