When Charlie interrupts Mrs. Bartlet reviewing the State of the Union on a recording, the last line heard from the speech talks about the "blue ribbon panel". When Charlie leaves and Abby resumes the recording, we hear President Bartlet repeat that same line again even though Abby had not rewound the recording. See more »
