Yeah, I canYeah, I can't fall off, you know. I don't want to break a tit. They weren't cheap.


On the campaign trail, Selina is annoyed by press reaction to her running mate's effortless charm and decides to attend a pancake-brunch fundraiser without any of her team on hand to help. When news arrives that a major hurricane is about to hit North Carolina, it looks like it could be good news for her image. In DC, Amy tries to adjust to her new post-White House life, and Jonah gets bizarrely ambushed at what he thinks is a job interview.

Ben: It's like a morgue full of dead librarians.

Selina: I can't fall off, you know. I don't want to break a tit. They weren't cheap.

Selina: Your bike is a lot bigger than mine. I should be riding in a basket in the front like ET.

Mike: Great. Another hate text from Amy. "You looked sweaty on TV yesterday. Are you going through the change?"
Kent: I wish I understood vendettas. They're so time-consuming.

Selina: I'm going commando at tomorrow's pancake brunch.
Gary: What? No underwear?
Selina: What? No. Jesus Christ. Yeah, that'll win me the election. A nice shot of my beav.

Jonah: Jesus f**king Christ. You all look like me. This is a nightmare.

Mike: Okay, ma'am, what if you said this? Who's achin' for some bacon?
Selina: No.

Tom: Fun fact scopolamine was first used as a truth serum by the Czechoslovakian state police.
Mike: How is that fun?

Selina: Fun fact about the honeybee. Do you know how much honey a honeybee produces in its lifetime?
Beatrice: I do not.
Selina: Well it's either surprisingly little or surprisingly a lot.

Gary: You listen to me. You are Beyonce. He is backup bootie.

Tom: Sometimes you have to gamble. Unfortunately, our horse did not win.
Selina: No, it certainly didn't. It fell at the first fence and it got shot. And now some French f**ker's got it in a baguette.

Mike: Ma'am, we've also set up a tour of an egg plant. I mean a plant that packs eggs, not the big vegetable.
