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 he's 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 The West Wing: In the Shadow of Two Gunmen: Part I (2000).

Goofs

Just before the scene where Matt & Helen Santos discuss their transition housing in their hotel room, the screen shot is of the outside of the Joseph Smith Memorial Building, obviously setting this as the Santos' hotel, although the building is actually in Salt Lake City, UT, and not Washington D.C.

Quotes

Louise Thornton: Rough day?
Josh Lyman: Nuh, typical.
Louise Thornton: You love it, you live for it, you were born to do it, I'm the same way. Everybody tells me to get a life, although I don't know why... I find life to be terribly overrated. It's actually quite boring when it's not disappointing. Say what you will about what we do, but boring it is not.
Josh Lyman: I know that you can parlay the Santos win into a doubling of your fee.
Louise Thornton: Tripling, if it figures into your memoirs.

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.
