In the beginning part of the episode the President (Martin Sheen)'s motorcade heads northwest on Pennsylvania avenue with the Capitol in the background when the President is in transit to the National Cathedral. The motorcade would not travel by the Capitol on its way from the White House to the National Cathedral. See more »


During a flashback where Mrs Landingham is attempting to convince Jed to tackle the pay difference between male and female staff she mentions that "Mr Ryan gets paid an additional $400 a year to coach the rowing team." Jed corrects her use of "team" to "crew." When she asks for clarification of what he means he says "it's not rowing, it's crew." While one might think Jed is correcting her description of a "team," the sport is usually only referred to as "crew," with no mention of "rowing," so he's correcting her description of the sport itself, not the athletes who participate.

Young Mrs. Dolores Landingham: Look at you. You're a boy king. You're a foot smarter than the smartest kid in the class. You're blessed with inspiration. You must know this by now. You must have sensed it. Look, if you think we're wrong... if you think Mr. Hopkins should honestly get paid more than Mrs. Chadwick, then I respect that. But if you think we're right and you won't speak up because you can't be bothered, then God, Jed, I don't even want to know you. Come inside.

Young Mrs. Dolores Landingham: I'll call Triple A.
