Trivia

Bartlet (Martin Sheen) promises Tribbey (Harry Groener) that next year it will be the Surgeon General who stays away from the State of the Union in case it is attacked. This is a mistake as the Surgeon General is not part of the Presidential Line of Succession and as such cannot assume Presidential powers. See more »

Goofs

President Bartlet promises the Secretary of Agriculture that next year, during the State of the Union, the Surgeon General will be given the duty of being the one person in the Order of Succession who will not attend. The Surgeon General is not in the order of succession. The only non-Secretary in the Cabinet who is in the order of succession is the Attorney General. See more »
