SORKIN - Up until the pilot aired, no one knew that the abbreviation for President of the United States was POTUS. Sam says it at the beginning.

Leo replies, ”I could have done that, Donna.” We did a couple of takes, and afterwards John said, ”You’re going to be here until the curtain comes down. ” He was the first person to say that.

It was the beginning of a tradition of both drinking in Allison’s trailer and being ambushed with a four-page monologue that you’d have to shoot that day after lunch.

JANNEY - Martin was always eating. I think he took the job for craft services, because he always had food in his mouth while they were trying to shoot.

oh, there’s more.
