Continuity mistake: When Toby is walking back to his office from the press room with his ex-wife, the ex-wife's tag and chain keeps changing through the entire sequence. Sometimes it's over her jacket and the tag's just hanging or it's under the jacket and the tag is sitting just inside her jacket.
Continuity mistake: After President Bartlett sits down (while speaking to CJ and the staff) he removes his glasses. The shot then changes to one from his back where he's wearing glasses. When the angle changes to the original, he's not wearing his glasses again. (00:06:30)admsteiner
Continuity mistake: When Leo asks Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Admiral Fitzwallace about the optics of hiring Charlie, a black man, to carry the president's bags, Fitzwallace's ribbons on his Navy uniform are upside-down. This mistake is very visible because he has two ribbons on the bottom when there should always be three. On his way out the door, there is one shot where Fitzwallace's ribbons have been fixed, but then as he walks out the door his ribbons are upside-down again. (00:25:50 - 00:27:10)
Continuity mistake: When CJ leaves Toby's office and Josh sits town on the couch next to Toby she closes the door as she walks out and we can hear it close. But the camera switches to a different angle as Josh sits down and the door frame is still in picture and is open as we hear the sound of it closing the door frame is still open. (00:20:40)
Continuity mistake: In this episode, presumably set in early 2000, Leo claims that he hasn't had a drink in six and a half years - which would suggest late 1993 - but this is contradicted twice in later episodes. In the Season 3 episode Bartlet For America, we see a flashback to the early stages of the Bartlet presidential campaign (which would be at the latest 1997) in which Leo is seen being in a drunken state. Later, in the Season 6 episode "Ninety Miles Away", there is a flashback to 1995 in Cuba where Leo is again seen in an inebriated state, where he was assisted by Kate Harper.marathon69
