Summary

With the Families First Bill growing increasingly toxic, Gary sets up a clandestine meeting with Dan and Amy to persuade them to lobby against it. Meanwhile, Selina attempts to keep working while ill in bed with the flu.

Quotes

(regarding the children in the kindergarten)
Dan: You know at least three of these kids are probably mine.

Tom James: Everyone, shut your f**king holes!!! The president is not sick! You guys are! You're parasites, you're like an infestation of mediocrity! (to Bill Ericsson) I don't care if you're a 1950s radio broadcaster, (to Mike) you're Fozzie Bear that's been ripped up and used to smuggle heroin, (to Kent) and Nazi Doctor! (to Gary) I don't even know what the f**k you are! This is not about serving yourselves, this is about serving the President. So lets do that shall we?
Selina: Tom... I do the team talks, okay?
Tom James: You're absolutely right, ma'am.
Selina: And I agree with everything you just said, so get it together people!
