Goofs Edit

During the episode Ellie Bartlett meets with and receives a wedding gift from the Bermudian Ambassador. Bermuda is not a sovereign nation, but rather a British Overseas Territory. Bermuda therefore does not and has never operated overseas diplomatic missions and sends no ambassadors to any country, not even to the United Nations. Bermuda's international foreign affairs and representation are handled by the British Foreign & Commonwealth Office by British ambassadors. Bermuda does however head a trade office in Washington D.C., headed by a 'Director', this is a non-diplomatic entity and is not covered by any diplomatic protections.
