Trivia

Josh interrupts Sam in a meeting at a law firm, asking him to leave his job and come to work for the President. This is a direct reference to when we see in flashback Josh interrupting Sam at a similar meeting to leave a law firm and join the first Bartlet campaign in second season episode In the Shadow of Two Gunmen: Part 1.

Goofs

A key plot component involves the NSA not only intercepting but reporting the content of a phone call made by the president-elect, an egregious felony. Yet the White House staff and incoming president simply accept it. See more »

President Elect Matthew Santos: [looks at his watch] Not even for a surgical strike.
Helen Santos: I had in mind more of shock and awe.
President Elect Matthew Santos: Oh, yeah? After 15 years of marriage I'd be shocked if you were awed.

Seaborn! Seaborn! SEABORN!!!
9 January 2013 | by (Estero Island) – See all my reviews

Hold on to your housefrock. He's back. He's back. He's really, really back. Mr. S. Norman Seaborn (Sam, to the uninitiated, also sometimes known as Rob Lowe - YOUNGBLOOD, THE SPY WHO SHAGGED ME). He's actually back. Wheeeeeeee! Josh travels to L.A., to walk in on lawyer Sam in a deja vu scene. He offers him deputy chief of staff. But Josh is unraveling in manic anxiety (and self-destructing his romance with Donna). Helen asks Donna to be her chief of staff. Sam shows up in D.C. and agrees to take the job, on the condition that Josh immediately take a week off on a beach somewhere. Josh finally agrees...and asks Donna to go with him. She agrees. Beautiful.
