The West Wing

The Lame Duck Congress - S2-E6

Plot hole: In order to allow time for a lengthy scene conversing while walking, actor John Spencer is sent on a ridiculous course through the West Wing. See the floor plan at http://www.whitehousemuseum.org/west-wing/west-wing-TV.jpg to follow along. He's first spotted leaving Margaret's area (blank space located just up and left of his "Chief of Staff" office on the plan). The handheld camera is in the Roosevelt room at this point. He turns right, traveling between his office and the Roosevelt room, meeting Donna along this hall. They make two slight left turns, then a hard left, entering the Roosevelt room (at the top/right corner's diagonal door). They walk the length of the room, turn left (down) and Leo drops some of the paperwork he carries onto the end of the table. They then exit the room (bottom left door) which is right outside the doorway where Leo started the scene. Leo isn't wandering. He's quite deliberate in his choices, yet if he'd simply walked straight ahead 6 or so steps from where he started, he'd have been where he dropped the papers.

Mistakes

In Season 1, Episodes 5&6, it's mentioned several times that Zoey is already 19 a few weeks before she starts college. Yet in this episode, Charlie points out to Leo and the President later tells Oliver Babbish that Zoey was 17 when she was filling out her enrollment forms for college, therefore a parent had to sign them. These are enrollment forms, not application forms - it's extremely unlikely that they were filled out over a year before she started school.
