Trivia

The fountain that Josh and Donna meet Cliff Calley by at the end of the episode is the same fountain used in the opening credits of Friends (1994). This can be seen by the same buildings in the background. See more »

Goofs

After Bartlett and Hoynes finish their conversation in the Oval, the exterior shot into the office shows that it's raining heavily, including thunder. The next scene is happening simultaneously in a park where Donna and Josh are meeting Cliff about the diary. It is dry, and obviously hasn't been raining since Donna and Josh both sitting outside on a bench with dry hair and clothing. See more »

Josh and Donna dance in the fountain (deleted scene only)
16 November 2012 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

How much o'keefe is in this episode?? Well, not miles, but Michael. The delightful Mr. O'Keefe (CADDYSHACK, THE GREAT SANTINI) has developed into a fine performer in his maturity, as he plays a reporter temporarily and begrudgingly assigned to the White House. He chooses integrity over sensationalism, and his scenes with C.J. sparkle. Leo and an old military friend (Gerald McRaney - SIMON AND SIMON, MAJOR DAD

  • in the first of two appearances) debate a new war crimes bill, and
Leo learns he participated in a civilian massacre. After a shooting in Texas, Jed asks Hoynes to publicly reverse his position on gun control. Donna, Josh, and Cliff meet at the fountain used in the opening credits of FRIENDS. Yes, i realize some of you would rather i'd have kept that information to myself.
