Trivia

Amanda Peet was still performing in the play "Barefoot in the Park" when the episode was filmed and would not abandon it. Her hair was still in a 1960s style, necessitating having it pulled back for the episode. See more »

Goofs

As Felicity Huffman is reading from the cue cards (filmed from behind the card holder) during last-minute rehearsal, she "reads": "Which isn't how we'd do it on Wysteria Lane. On Wysteria Lane we'd invite the suspect over to our book club . . ." The card holder then moves a card from front to back of a stack of three cards. The camera angle changes to the front of the cards, and only one card can be seen, rather than three. That card reads "Which isn't how we'd do it on Wysteria Lane. On Wysteria Lane we'd invite the suspect over to our book club . . ." -- the same words Felicity Huffman had just "read" from the card that was then moved to the back of the stack. See more »

Quotes

Harriet Hayes: What went on in the control room?
Cal Shanley: [sighs] We got word the sketch was cut. Next thing I knew Wes was up on stage, Standards blew into the room, and I waited 53 seconds before I pulled the plug.
Harriet Hayes: There had to be a lot of confusion - it's not like there are rules or procedures for this kind of thing.
Cal Shanley: No, there are strict rules and procedures for this kind of thing, I just didn't follow any of them.

Bravo!
15 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Aaron and Thomas (and even Snuffy) back together again and creating another smart-funny-visually exciting show. Television is always better with Sorkin. The characters are compelling. And after the first appearances of Bradley Whitford and Matthew Perry you forget about their previous roles. DJ Hugley (I hope I have't misspelled his name) and Amanda Peet and Steven Weber are all excellent. And Judd Hirsch was brilliant as the beleaguered creator of Studio 60. I believe that this series should be a hit (if middle America is at all interested in what makes television run) Already some of the lines have stayed with me as was often the case on West Wing. Looking forward to this series.
