The Reunion


Episode Info

As Christmas nears, the Sports Night staffers participate in the hallowed Secret Santa holiday gift exchange -- though for most, there is very little secret involved. Natalie (Sabrina Lloyd) corners Casey (Peter Krause) and asks him what he wants for his gift, which in turn inspires Casey to ask Isaac (Robert Guillaume) what he'd like. As the holiday preparations continue, Dana (Felicity Huffman) anxiously awaits the arrival of her younger brother Kyle (Eric Bruskotter), a professional football player who has been recently revealed as a participant in a doping scandal and faces league suspension. Meanwhile, Natalie asks Dan and Casey for advice in regards to her audition tape, as she has had ongoing aspirations for an on-air position. Dan gives her an overly enthusiastic response that he nearly immediately regrets, forcing him to come clean later in the day. As the entire crew sets about to come to a consensus about whom they'd name the greatest athlete of the last century, Dana's brother finally arrives in the studio and gets a somewhat different reception than he'd been expecting.


Critic Reviews for The Reunion

Caring enough to pretend like they are-well, as frustrating and unproductive as that is for all involved, is wonderfully sweet, as Isaac acknowledges in that lovely moment where he replaces an award plaque on his shelf with Casey's cheese grater.
