Veep 3.05 – Fishing
Amy and Dan compete for the role of campaign manager: Dan is nice and Amy invites everyone to her home, while Selina meets with a third candidate, Bill Ericsson (Diedrich Bader); Mike causes a stir collecting his semen while at work for IVF purposes; Gary worries that his shoulder pain may prevent him from keeping his job; Selina, Dan and Gary travel to Virginia to persuade George Maddox (Isiah Whitlock, Jr.) not to run for president. Meanwhile, Jonah got a job working for Maddox through his uncle, who controls a major vote in New Hampshire.
You know, Dan, watching you try to be nice is like watching a baby smoke a cigarette. It’s kind of cool, but also very disturbing.
How much would I love to speak my mind on this campaign? Can you imagine if I did that? “Mississippi is chock full of assholes, I don’t trust the Chinese, and I gotta tell you something. I’m not gonna be able to pass a single piece of legislation that’s really gonna make any fuck of a difference in your life.” So how’s that for my platform?
