Did You Know?


When Leo and Adm. Fitzwallace are sitting in the Situation Room discussing what to do about Qumari Defense Minister Shareef, Fitzwallace states, "I've been a soldier for thirty-eight years." The problem with this statement is that Fitz is a Naval Officer - a distinction in service branch that is apparently overlooked by the scriptwriters: a member of the Navy would actually refer to himself/herself as a sailor, not a soldier. In American military jargon, 'soldier' denotes one who serves in the Army. See more »


Leo McGarry: Toby, an encouraging word from you to Sam wouldn't be totally out-of-line.
Toby Ziegler: Sam doesn't need to be patronized. He'll shake it off.
Leo McGarry: It'll make him feel better.
Toby Ziegler: I don't want him feeling better. I want him feeling mad. Is there anyone you'd rather have as a blood enemy less than Sam? That's how I want him.
Leo McGarry: You know, it was a screw-up. But I gotta say, I love the way he did it full-speed, bam. Like there's a Sam Seaborn-shaped hole in the wall.

Well, I can fire a gun without falling down, if that's what you mean
18 November 2012 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

Shareef is visiting the U.S., but cannot be arrested because of diplomatic immunity. The heart of this episode is a Sit Room scene between Leo and Fitz, in which Fitz argues that the U.S. cannot let Shareef get away. The argument ranges far and wide, about geopolitical issues, the definition of war, and the meaning of modern terrorism. John Amos' most incendiary moment in show history (and perhaps in his career, excepting of course BEASTMASTER). Plans are made to assassinate Shareef on an airstrip in Bermuda. In the middle of intoxicating bliss, the Josh/Amy romance begins to disintegrate as their job agendas collide. The simmer between Simon and C.J. continues off the meter, as she exercises in the Secret Service gym and makes a marksmanship wager with him.
