Trivia

This episode addresses the very serious issues of gun violence and war crimes. This is somewhat contrasted by the guest appearances of two actors known for starring in two of the most outrageous comedies of the late 70s/ early 80s. Tim Matheson starred as Eric Stratten in Animal House (1978) and Michael O'Keefe played Danny Noonan in Caddyshack (1980). See more »

Goofs

The FAC (pronounced the way it is spelled) is the Forward Air Controller, not Forward Air Commander. See more »

Quotes

Toby Ziegler: This is the Legal Tender... Huckleberry Bill?
Sam Seaborn: Modernization Bill, yeah.
Toby Ziegler: We can't support it 'cause it'll never get to the floor.
Sam Seaborn: Why not?
Toby Ziegler: Where's the Speaker of the House from?
Sam Seaborn: He's from Illinois, which, by the way, is the only state where you can put pennies in a toll machine. Why is that, do you suppose?
Toby Ziegler: It's because...
Sam Seaborn: [realizing] It's 'cause Lincoln's from Illinois! And... so is the Speaker.
Toby Ziegler: Yes.
Sam Seaborn: Well, that's a good reason. Well, it's a dumb reason, but it's good enough, right?
