Storyline

White House press secretary C.J. Cregg has granted television news magazine "Access" permission to film her on a typical day in the office. On this particular day however, news of a standoff involving a terrorist and the FBI breaks, forcing C.J and the White House to operate in full crisis mode. This episode is presented as the end product of the "Access" documentary, with interviews, stock footage, narration, and "unscripted/live" events captured on camera as they unfold.

Goofs

At the end of the teaser, the documentary narrator says "Tonight we go behind the podium" as CJ takes her place in the press room. This is an extremely common mistake. The podium is the platform on which a speaker such as CJ stands. The thing they stand *behind* is a lectern. See more »

Quotes

C.J. Cregg: One of the hardest things to learn: There are so many true crises, so many lurking situations that could be dangerous for the President, its hard not to get caught up in the adrenaline and make everything lethal. It's more than picking your battles, marshaling your energy. It's about grace under fire. All war metaphors. I guess that's it; being able to tell when its a matter of life or death.
