A dramatic incident in the White House leaves the President shaken, while Tom James's "mis-speak" at a Q&A looks like it could make her day even worse. As Mike tries to sell the press on Selina's Families First bill, Sue and Gary prepare for the President's White House dinner with old friends. Jonah and Richard inadvertently reveal a terrible secret, while Dan and Amy find themselves at a lobbying event for the concrete industry.

Ben: So, uh, any other psychotic things we should know about you?
Tom: I think we should sterilize everyone in New Jersey.
Kent: Good idea!
Tom: I'm in favor of assisted dying to anyone who talks in a movie theatre...
Ben: That's forward thinking.
Tom: ...and I think we should legalise drugs.
Ben: Oh, yeah! I'll get the bong!
Tom: No, no, that last one, that's actually not a joke.
Jonah: (laughs) Set it up, knock it down! Tom James! (no-one else is laughing)
Tom: I'm serious. I think we should legalize drugs; having seeing what my son's been through, I think it's the only way.
Mike: F**k my face.
Kent: Okay, uh...
Mike: If this gets out, my life's hell!
Tom: Guys, guys! Everybody, calm down.
Bill Ericsson: Yeah, let's just smoke a doobie and pop some ludes(!)
Tom James: (after hearing about the data leak) Y'know, I could kick over chairs and scream "How in the risen f**k did this happen". What's the point? It's done. I say we move on. Together, the Magnificent Seven!
Kent: He's really good.
Richard: It's cause there's seven of us!
Kent: I meant as a politician.
Richard: I know, I know.
