In April of 2003, Warren Keith wrote: Last night on the TV series " Alias " Joni popped up again. A few months back they used the song "River" as the backdrop to a scene. Last night a very " by-the-book" CIA operative was sitting at a computer terminal wearing headphones and weeping, another operative who was sweet on her shyly got her attention and offered a tissue. As she removed her headphones he asked if she was O.K. Flustered, she hesitantly replied, "I'm listening to Joni Mitchell ... please don't tell anyone." The conversation continued breifly and the scene ended with her saying, "Joni always makes me feel so fatalistic." The episode's title was "Apocalypse Later." Greg also let us know about this one. Thanks, guys!
