  • If all my reviews sound the same, it's because this show was top quality and consistently solid. This episode was no exception, because it was just as awesome as the rest of them!

    • Featured song: "Sloop John B" by the Beach Boys.

    • The "previously on Sports Night" contains a scene of Jeremy talking to Natalie about taking a couple days off to go home, due to his parent's impending divorce. This explains Jeremy's absence at the start of the show. The scene in question never occurred in the show, however. Instead, the news of his parents impending divorce was revealed during Jeremy's voice-over letter to his sister Louise during the previous episode, How Are Things in Glocca Morra? and the scene, apparently shot but elided, appears only briefly in the teaser.
