An eccentric, unconventional woman whose naive aspirations to rise from her job as a security guard to full-fledged private eye lead her into a tangled PL: mess.
All of Senator Avery's (Nick Nolte) lines, except for sparse words or lines in response to conversation, are real quotes from politicians.
And when you get tired of being stupid in public, then we'll talk!
Senator Avery talks about going for his 8th term but this is impossible. Even assuming the shortest possible time in office (serving only one day of a vacated Senator's position as his first term plus 5 full terms of 6 years each and he is speaking on the first day of his 7th term) this equals 30 years and two days. He directly states he is 52 and you cannot become a Senator unless you are at least 30 meaning he must be an absolute minimum of 60 yeas and two days old.
