Director and Writers
Director: Morgan Sackett
Story by: Ian Maxtone-Graham
Amy: (Reading from President Montez's speech) "Selina Meyer didn't just shatter the glass ceiling, she swept up every single shard so that my daughter and your daughters will never even know it existed."
Selina: Well, that just tickles my twat! Gosh, Montez is actually gonna say that at my portrait unveiling in English?
Amy: Yeah, in front of 200 of Washington's most important people... and Mike.
Greg Morehouse: We do need a bit more of the presidency in there. I mean, the book ends with you going off to college.
Selina: That's right, yes, and the presidential stuff will be in volume two... "Meyer Ascendant."
Mike: And three... "The Meyer Year."
Greg Morehouse: I get that, and if you wanna stick with this book as is, I completely understand. We're just gonna need our advance back.
Mike: There was an advance?
Selina: Catherine, you are not going to be coy or twee about the sex of my grandchild. This is a human being you're making, not some Brooklyn-based, artisanal chocolate bar.
Marjorie: Birth gender isn't even that relevant. She/he will decide her/his ideal gender when she/he is/are ready.
Selina: Okay, is that how we're talking now, Marjorie, like some sort of bi-curious Porky Pig?
Jonah: How come you guys got invited and I didn't?
Kent: Because we worked for the president
Ben: ...and didn't cost her the presidency. And because we don't look like Herman Munster's brother who liked to molest that pudgy werewolf kid.
Kent: Charlie, also played by Fred Gwynne. Season one, episode nine.
Gary: Nobody since Jackie has given as much for their country as you.
Selina: That is true.
Gary: If Jackie Kennedy can go through the day with her husband's philandering brains all over her dress and her head held high, looking stunning, even though they made her ride around in a convertible like an animal, I might add, you can go to the White House tomorrow and forget all about those 15 minutes where he couldn't even unzip the back of your dress.
Selina: Wait a minute, what? How do you know that?
Gary: It was in Mike's notes.
Jonah: A lot of people are saying that I shut down the government. You're damn right, I did! I shut down the government for wasting our money. I shut down the government for interfering with our clocks and watches. I shut down the post office because everybody just uses email anyway. I shut down NPR because they're a total snoozefest, and they said this shutdown was a bad idea. I shut down the national parks so that your parents will have to take you someplace cool on vacation, like Disney World or Cancun or Mexico. Are there any questions?
Shawnee: The congressman will not be taking any questions.
Jonah: The congressman will not be taking any questions.
