While the doors of Sports Night shuttered after only two seasons, the show helped launch the television careers of several actors and became an early indicator of what Aaron Sorkin could do on TV. When the cast came back together for EW‘s reunion issue, they discussed some of the show’s most memorable moments.
The cast name-drops a number of the show’s biggest episodes during the EW photo shoot. Josh Charles describes a “The Weight” musical cue from season one’s “The Quality of Mercy at 29K.” Joshua Malina recalls one the of the show’s last episodes, “April Is the Cruelest Month,” in which his character Jeremy puts together a Seder dinner in between episodes of the show within the show, also called Sports Night.
Peter Krause and Felicity Huffman talk about some of Casey McCall and Dana Whitaker’s romantic history. Particularly memorable for them is the long-awaited kiss from the beginning of season two in “Special Powers.”
