TV Guide's Ask Ausiello answered a question relating to this week's episode:
"Question: I've waited patiently for I don't know how many years, so if you can't promise me that Josh and Donna will share a long, slow, wet kiss that lasts at least two commercial breaks, then I'm done with The West Wing. — Nate
Ausiello: Two commercial breaks? That's asking a lot, don't you think? Josh and Donna will finally smack lips this Sunday, but Jimmy Smits interrupts them before they can make it to second base. [J]osh isn't giving up, though. Something happens at the end of the episode that suggests it won't be long before they start makin' babies."
