Dear Louise...




Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Episode Info

After a particularly grueling day in the studio, Dan (Josh Charles) spearheads an effort to get everyone to go to the bar. Casey (Peter Krause) initially declines the invite, but swiftly changes his mind after learning that Dana (Felicity Huffman) is coming along. Everyone but Jeremy (Joshua Malina) decides to go, prompting Dana and Natalie (Sabrina Lloyd) to try to talk the new guy into joining the festivities. After convincing everyone that he needs to write a letter to his hearing-impaired sister Louise, Jeremy does indeed stay behind and proceeds to recount to his younger sister his first three months on the Sports Night crew. Responding to Louise's previous letter inquiring about his co-workers, Jeremy goes into some of the details he has learned about his fellow staffers -- ranging from Isaac's (Robert Guillaume) extensive experience as a newsman to Dana's upbringing to his new and awkward relationship with Natalie. As he begins to wrap up the letter, Jeremy hears loud music coming from the studio and learns that the gang has returned after getting kicked out of the bar for being unruly -- which leads to an unexpected but very welcome encounter between Natalie and Jeremy.

Critic reviews for Dear Louise...

Yet those moments have a long-term trajectory; everyone knows that if you get some alcohol in Dana she will bust out her-her-her boogie shoes, and boogie with you. It's something to look forward to and something to savor.
