Episode Quotes
Kitty: We're not at war yet.
Nora: Oh, please, we were attacked. This country's gonna bomb something. It's the American way.

Nora: David, please don't be a stranger. I don't want you to feel everytime you come here you're required to nail something. I didn't say that right, did I?

Kitty: Thank you Jack. In the interview you are about to see I ask Senator McCallister about his stem cell bill, his position on Iraq, and his aspiration towards higher executive office. What I didn't ask him about was his recent divorce. Now I wish I could say that I didn't ask the Senator about the divorce because of some high-minded notion of journalistic integrity, but it was just the opposite. I have a brother who served in Afghanistan and was recently called back to serve in Iraq. And I did the Senator a favor in hope that he would do me one and use his influence to keep my brother home; to keep him from fighting in a war that I have defended on this very program. Senator McCallister rightly refused to help me, his integrity remains intact, but mine however, less so. "Mistakes were made," President Ronald Reagan said those words twenty years ago in a time when admitting a mistake was perceived as a sign of strength. I made a mistake. I made a mistake in compromising the interview that you are about to see and I made a mistake in continuing to defend a war that is in desperate need of reexamination; Reexamination which cannot come until we acknowledge that the war itself was a mistake. None of this is meant to serve as an excuse for my own conduct, but I do hope that you will find it in your hearts to accept my apology.

Sarah: You're incredible. We come to an Army bar, and you manage to get laid.
Kevin: Well, not yet, but I'm working on it.
