CJ : Come here
Will : What's wrong?
CJ : Close the door
Will : I didn't do it
CJ : Clooooose the door
Will : Toooooby did it

I had to pause and laugh for a while...VERY well played =)

PS - Yes, I'm watching it live to avoid studying...

Spoiler from the preview, but not really since it came up in the VERY last scene:

Well, that's one sure way they can end the series without worrying about the new administration...just make the whole US a nuclear wasteland, hee hee

Very good episode. Fanagling with the security counsel was a great story line.

For those of use that don't have dual tuners (come on Series 3) and were watching/recording 24, anyway to get a synopsis on what happened?

Buried in this forum someplace at least a few times is my suggestion for that end-of-series scenario.

Eh. I just didn't enjoy this one as much as I'm enjoying the campaigning episodes. All my favorite characters (other than perhaps Will) are outside of the West Wing.

Let's see.

Danny asks CJ to dinner and tells her that Bartlet's son-in-law who is running for congress in New Hampshire is banging the nanny. Bartlet has a campaign appearance with him next week, and CJ calls the s-i-l in to tell him he needs to cancel that appearance, with the excuse that he wants to run on his own merit. They don't tell Bartlet the truth. He's surprised. Liz comes in and wants CJ to convince s-i-l to change his mind and reschedule the appearance with Bartlett. CJ says the date has already been given away.

CJ told Josh that some new biotech plant will be built in Austin, but don't tell anyone because they don't want to piss of the democratic Senator from Kentucky who wants it in their state. Santos makes a speech and says something along the lines of "good news coming to Austin." CJ is pissed at Josh. The Senator from KY is pissed at the WH. But then CJ tells Josh that the president is going to announce that the plant is opening in Austin, and will then go to Kentucky to campaign for the senator there. Would Santos like to join? "I don't know, I'll have to check with him." "Go to hell, Josh."

Something to do with the Sudan and the Chinese and the security council.

Danny asks CJ to dinner again. Says he wants to give up being a reporter. The whole banging-the-nanny thing made him realize he's tired of it. He's about to ask CJ to marry him (something about jumping off the cliff holding hands) when CJ's pager goes off and she has to run out. Back to the White House where the national security advisor chick says there's been a nuclear incident. Weapon? Power. Russia? California. Fade to black.

I really enjoyed this episode and the dialogue within the episode. I liked Will and Kate a lot, and am always glad to see Danny. I noticed this was written by Bradley Whitford and wonder if that has anything to do with the quality of the dialogue.

Great scene with Will and CJ about the nanny. Paraphrasing a bit (maybe somebody can come up with the actual lines):

Will: He's banging the nanny.
CJ: But he's got children!
Will: Good thing, if you you're gonna have a nanny, particularly one that looks like that.

:D

I liked:

Danny: "He's banging the nanny"
CJ: What?!
DC: "He's banging the nanny"
CJ: "Is that a euphamism?" (or was that "metaphor"?)
DC: "No... well, I guess 'banging' is."

:D

Actually, lots of good 'banging' exchanges in this one :) (paraphrasing):

CJ: "He's banging the nanny"
Kate Harper: "Get... out!"
CJ: "No, really"
KH: "Is she cute?"
CJ: "What does that matter?"
KH: "I grew up around uniformed men; biology kicks virtue's ass everytime"
CJ: "She's 26"
KH: "Right... so she doesn't have to be cute"

when Kate said "get out", I totally wanted her to shove CJ, a la Elaine in Seinfeld. There's prboably a gag reel out there with her doing just that. :)

I watched the entire episode and thought it was very well done. I really enjoyed the quality of the writing -- it had subtlety and an interesting, complex plot that set up numerous plotlines that all came together nicely. I felt that it was a lot like the old Sorkin episodes. It made me really miss the old West Wing.

Then I went back to the beginning to find that Bradley Whitford wrote it. Nice. He should write more of the eps! Great job in my opinion.

Ironically, I found Bradley's character to have the least compelling dialogue in the entire episode, though. Josh was kinda boring! It's interesting that he wrote an episode that had very little to do with the election stuff (which his character is so involved with) and more to do with White House stuff. I wonder if that was a concious choice or if he was asked to do it that way.

I "liked" how CJ got a pager message that had her running back to the WH muttering "oh my god..oh my god..." and then arrives and seems to have no idea what's happened. The pager can only say "nuke accident" and has no room for "in California"?

Yup, great episode. I knew that the wife knew about the affair as soon as she came to see CJ. It's too bad Doug didn't tell CJ about that himself. And I really loved the "I didn't do it! Toby did it!" exchange. Very funny.

would it have really mattered? She still would have told the President not to go and campaign for him.

Maybe, maybe not. Tough to say. If everyone knows about the affair it's not really a secret. Sure the press will run with it, but if the wife comes out and says she knows about it, they're working through it, etc, it loses a lot of its power.

I guess I'm not sure. It just seems like something CJ would have wanted to know. If for no other reason than to see if who she had to lie around.
