Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright was quoted in "Time" magazine as saying this episode had one of the best expositions on foreign policy she'd seen on TV.

As a border war between India and Pakistan poses the threat of a nuclear clash, a flamboyant British expert on the region, Lord John Marbury is summoned to the White House, while Charlie asks for the President's permission to date his daughter Zoey. Josh is subpoenaed to testify on his investigation into substance abuse.


Marbury is described as "former British Ambassador to India". Both India and the United Kingdom are members of the Commonwealth of Nations; the diplomatic representative of one Commonwealth nation to another is called "High Commissioner", not "Ambassador".
