    So.. it all gets closers and everyone is working for the election but Qumar does not give president no easy time and now they have started to think that Israel is behind it all and it does not go well.



    Most of the other action goes about Stackhouse and Amy and Josh have some great conversation to sort out their differences and reasons why Amy got fired on her previous work. Donna in the Richie's conference and later.. it was funny..



    But on the overall, this episode was nothing too special and somehow it was in some points confusing as I could not get what they were talking. Maybe it is my language barrier.. who knows.. Anyway, the end.. the church.. it was greatmoreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Leo: Then you've read that Qumar's reopened the investigation into Abdul Shareef's plane going down.

      Qumar is a made-up country.

    • Sam: What do I know? Shareef was a bad guy. Feels like he had money in the Bahji cell.

      The Bahji terrorist cell is not real.

    • The same man walks through the hall in the background during two sequential shots of Donna and Josh as they discuss the self-help book.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Susan: I don't know why you think the Committee to Re-Elect needs us to protect them. And if Ritchie's strategy is what you say it is, won't Josh Lyman figure that out in five minutes?
      Amy: It'll take his assistant Donna five minutes. It'll take Josh half that time.
      Stackhouse: Really?
      Amy: Maybe a little longer because the Mets lost last night, and he'll need to focus.
      [Cut to Josh's Office. Josh is reading his newspaper]
      Josh: Just throw strikes! I don't understand why that can't happen. You have a three-run lead, just throw strikes. I mean, my God!

    • Janet: This was his fourth one by the way.
      Sam: Fourth what?
      Janet: Heart attack.
      Sam: The Democrates have nominated someone who's had three heart attacks?
      Janet: Yes.
      Sam: And you think I don't care enough about---? What kind of signal does that to---? I have to talk--- (pauses) No, this isn't gonna to be part of my life.
      Janet: Wow. You just did a whole thing all by yourself.
      Sam: Yeah, I do that.

    • Charlie: Can you make a run to the staff secretary's office? Ella's not there, but someone should be. Make sure you just take what needs to be signed today. They're gonna try to give you a whole stack, and right there's where you become a man-animal.
      Emily: Should I use sex as a tactic?
      Charlie: If you need to. Hell, even if you just want to.
