Season 6 Trivia

  • Episode 21 - This episode's title is taken from a part of a line in the poem "The Second Coming" by William Butler Yeats. The phrase was also famously used by Chinua Achebe as the title of his 1958 novel.
  • Episode 02 - Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): General Alexander says that the U.S. has bombed a terrorist training camp "in the Kingdom of Syria". Syria is not a kingdom; it is a republic (nominally a democratic one).

  • Episode 02 - A running gag amongst The West Wing is that senior staffers fly backwards when firing a gun. This happens to Toby when trying to shoot a shotgun, and CJ with a pistol in an earlier season.
  • Episode 04 - The representative from the Republic of Georgia refers to "President Rustaveli." Shota Rustaveli (1172-1216) is the author of Georgia's national epic, 'The Knight in the Panther Skin'.
