Trivia

After Kirkman's TV interview, Seth observes that he "has more lives than a cat." The same comment is made about Jack Bauer, played by Kiefer Sutherland, in season three of 24 (2001). See more »

Goofs

During Kirkman's discussion with Alice in the Oval Office at the end of the episode, it is dark outside (as we can see through the windows when we look from Kirkman's point of view). But when the camera shifts to look at Kirkman's face, the light on the wall behind him is bright sun light. See more »

Quotes

Seth Wright: Man, our boss has more lives than a cat.
Emily Rhodes: Good thing for us kittens.
Seth Wright: So, since we're not burning the midnight oil...
Emily Rhodes: Oh, come by anytime. I'll put out a bowl of milk. We can torture metaphors.
Seth Wright: Sounds good.

Seth Wright: Hey.
[he holds out his hand for a fist bump]

Another example of poor writing

So the story is this. The President insults the whole nation. Everybody is outraged. But then he gives an interview and everybody loves him. End of story.

Really weak stuff...
