Trivia

When Delta Burke made her first entrance on the show, she expected to stop for a brief moment for applause and then continue the scene. Instead she was met with a standing ovation from the audience - which stretched on so long that she broke character, walked off, grabbed creator Linda Bloodworth-Thomason's hand and dragged her on stage to show that they had made amends.

Quotes

Natty: Washington is the only town in America where the appearance of something is much more important than the reality. For instance, if you go into a public restroom and you come out too soon, you didn't wash your hands. If you stay in too long, you molested someone. If you stay in there just the right amount of time, you're slick.

This Was A Truly Terrible Show

I flipped it on once and Delta Burke was giving a speech about 'wive' beating to a bunch of fat-cat male senators. It then proceeds to have violin music or whatever to video of women being beaten that had me confused as to whether it was funny or just plain bad amateur acting. The women's heads were being swung violently and they were bleeding all over the place. It was a truly awful show.
