The life of one of the USA's Founding Fathers, its second President, and his role in the nation's first 50 years.
During the scene in which Nabby has her surgery and John Adams is nervously pacing downstairs, Abigail says to him, "For god's sake, John, sit down." This is a particularly memorable line from the first song in the musical "1776" (music and lyrics by Sherman Edwards and book by Peter Stone), about the writing and signing of the Declaration of Independence. In his 2015 Pulitzer Prize-winning "Hamilton: An American Musical," Lin-Manuel Miranda also paraphrased this line from 1776 in the song "The Adams Administration" by having Alexander Hamilton sing, "Sit down, John, you fat motherfucker!"
My thoughts are so clear to me... each one takes perfect shape within my mind. But when I speak, when I offer them to others, they seem to lose all definition.
"Nabby" Adams died of breast cancer at age 48, yet in the series she is depicted as being barely out of her twenties when she dies.
