  • Quotes

    • Jack: I wish this was a fight for ethics. I wish this was a conversation about the integrity of the news, but it's not. It's about preventing ourselves from being a laughingstock.
      Ted: Well, I don't feel like a laughingstock.
      Jack: That's only because you're a moron.
      Ted: (To Wilson, after a long pause) You're backing up what he said?
      Wilson White: Yes, including and especially your being a moron.

    • Hallie: He got your order wrong.
      Jordan: No, this is what I eat while I'm waiting for the food

    • Hallie: (talking with Jordan in Jordan's office) Uh oh, there's another pretty girl at the dance and this one's not pregnant.

    • Tom: What are you doing?
      Lucy: Um, waiting for Simon to come back. The men who work here have a very difficult time focusing on one subject at the moment. They're easily distracted by shiny objects-
      Tom: Would you like to go out on a date with me sometime?
      Lucy: Pardon?
      Tom: I asked if you would like to go out on a date with me sometime.
      Lucy: Really?
      Tom: Yeah.
      Lucy: Really?
      Tom: Yeah.
      Lucy: Really?
      Tom: Yeah.
      Lucy: I'd love to.
      Tom: Thursday night?
      Lucy: Sure.
      Tom: Then my work here is done.

    • Jordan: Danny, you shouldn't be in the studio alone
      Danny: Matt's here
      Jordan: Matt's there because with Harriet gone, it's like someone moved his food dish.

    • Matt: Twelve hundred dollars I gotta give to abstinence people?
      Suzanne: Twelve hundred and one.
      Matt: Alright, do it, and can you find me some non-profit organization that fundamentally does the opposite of what these guys do, so I can donate an equal amount to them, and make it a wash?
      Suzanne: That means an organization that encourages people to have sex?
      Matt: It's L.A. You should be able to throw a rock and hit one.

  • Notes

    • Timothy Busfield (Cal Shanley) does not appear in this episode but you can hear his voice calling for a New Years welcome back meeting near the beginning of the episode when Danny is in his office.

  • Allusions

    • The pitch from a program called "All you need is love" is not really original. There was a programme of that name which aired in European countries such as Holland and Portugal. The programme was a reality tv show, where sets of two unknown people were set on blind dates by the programme producers. The encounters would than be filmed and the participants sometimes followed for a period of weeks. The programme also reunited estranged family members, hurt ex-lovers and people who were for some reason or another apart. Despite the fact that it was not very good, it ran for several seasons.

    • Matt: You guys heard of a book called "The 48 Laws of Power"?

      Matt is talking about the book written by Robert Greene, "The 48 Laws of Power", published in 1998.
