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!
