S05E02 - Nev-ah-da
No: 40 | Season: 5 Episode: 2 | Air Date: 1-May-16
Amy, Dan, Jonah and Richard travel to Carson City, Nevada in an attempt to force a judicial recount of the state. Meanwhile, back in Washington D.C., Selina brings in Bob Bradley (Martin Mull), a respected Washington fixture nicknamed "The Eagle", as an advisor. Tom James has been moved aside to his role as the leader of the banking task force, and for some reason he is suddenly agreeable about everything. Selina meets billionaire banker Charlie Baird and suddenly decides he is "spongeworthy", much to the chagrin of Gary. Mike goes on a master cleanse, in an attempt to get healthy before his adopted baby arrives. However, his blood sugar dips dangerously (and humorously). Kent is fascinated by Sue's age, as he perceives she is much older than she appears. After successfully forcing a judicial recount in Nevada, Amy and Dan share a "will they or won't they" moment.
Director and Writers
Director: Chris Addison
Story by: Lew Morton
Ben: What in the lunatic f**k is the master cleanse? Sounds like Nazi domestic policy.
Kent: Little known fact about the Nazis. Their polling numbers within Germany, through the roof. Unbelievable numbers. (pause) Though also tragic.
Ben: The Jewish demo couldn't have been that good.
Bob: Lookie here. Ben Cafferty all grown up. We used to have a million nicknames for this guy. We called him Fatty Dicksuckle and B-B-Benny and the Jizz. Buttf**ker.
Ben: Buttf**ker, that's me. I can't believe you remembered my nickname.
Ben: Ma'am, I don't think right now would be the best time for another banking task force.
Selina: No, I just want to have a quick banking task force.
Ben: With all due respect, ma'am, you know, the banks will still be, you know, raring to go for a task force, you know, when you're safely reelected.
Selina: I'm human, okay? I just I just sometimes need a little banking task force.
Ben: Well, ma'am, if you want, I can arrange a more discreet banking task force.
Selina: I don't want that kind of banking task force. I want the banking task force that I want.
Kent: What about Patty Driscoll from Deutsche Bank? She's very good. Might be nice to throw a woman in the mix.
