Trivia

Goofs

The analogy that Josh uses ("Islamic extremism is to Islamic as KKK is to Christianity") is grammatically incorrect. The first half relates a noun to an adjective whereas the second half relates a noun to a noun. The correct analogy would be "Islamic extremism is to *Islam* as KKK is to Christianity." See more »

Quotes

Josh Lyman: I'm going to be here six presidents from now, in my office, Wile E. Coyote and a map.
