Trivia

The incident in Saudi Arabia referred to by C. J. Cregg in the opening is a thinly disguised version of an actual incident. On March 15, 2002 it was reported that members of the religious police in Mecca had intentionally prevented schoolgirls from fleeing a burning school building because they were not properly attired to appear in public. Fifteen of the female pupils died as a result. See more »

Goofs

Novaya Gazeta is depicted as a sensationalist and grossly irresponsible Russian tabloid. It is actually a highbrow pro-democracy newspaper, published since 1993 by the Gorbachev Foundation. (It is also pronounced NOV-aya, not no-VA-ya.) See more »

Quotes

Russian Negotiator Nikolai Ivanovich: Why must every American president bound out of an automobile like as at a yacht club while in comparison our leader looks like... I don't even know what word is.
Sam Seaborn: Frumpy?
Russian Negotiator Nikolai Ivanovich: I don't know what "frumpy" is but onomatopoetically sounds right.
Sam Seaborn: It's hard not to like a guy who doesn't know frumpy but knows onomatopoeia.
