Trivia

On the DVD commentary for this episode, Aaron Sorkin recalls that during a break from the filming of Yo Yo Ma's performance scene, in an attempt to help his performance and "get into the rhythm" of the scene, Dulé Hill (who plays Charlie) started to tap dance to the cello piece. Hill is a highly accomplished professional tap dancer who has performed with Savion Glover and other tap luminaries. See more »

Goofs

(at around 15 mins) President Bartlet says, "When I was in tenth grade, me and my friends took my father's Country Squire out on a joyride to Vermont." He should have said, "...my friends and I..." A man of Bartlet's education should not have made such an elementary mistake in English grammar. See more »

Quotes

Josh Lyman: You're not going to understand it.
Stanley Keworth: I'm a fairly well-educated guy.

Probably my favorite WW epi...
7 April 2019 | by robbscott-1See all my reviews

Much as Iove IED, this is probably the defining epi of WW. Brad Whitford's greatest performance.

& Maybe the Sork's best writing, ever.
