Trivia

Toby (Richard Schiff) notes that C.J. (Allison Janney) was the focus of intercessory prayer "a few months ago". In fact the prayer was first mentioned in an episode that took place a few months earlier. but the events in question occurred during a flashback. The prayer happened the week of the first inauguration, four years earlier. See more »

Goofs

Charlie Young calls the Pentagon on the phone and asks for "Sergeant Major Moreland." He is transferred to several offices, but to each subsequent person he asks for "Sergeant Moreland." Sergeant Major is the top enlisted rank in the Army and Marine Corps, and people who hold that rank are always addressed as "Sergeant Major," not "Sergeant." Charlie Young would deal with military personnel on a regular basis, and mentioned that he knew that Sergeant Major personally, as he played basketball with him. He would know the proper form of address. See more »
