Veep 3.09 – Crate
After Selina is caught badmouthing a reporter, putting the campaign in jeopardy, the team gets some unexpected news. Mike worries about balancing his home and work life. Selina and her staff wonder how to make her seem more down-to-earth, when they learn that Thornhill is leading in the polls.
Dan: Amy, I gotta say, you’re doing a great job. Seriously, you do me better that I do me.
Amy: You do yourself a lot.
Mike: [regarding Selina’s new campaign “platform”] She thinks it looks folksy, but she really looks like Dustin Hoffman on a crate.
Mike: [trying to unlock a cellphone] It’s password protected. Hang on. 0-0-0-1… 0-0-0-2… 0-0-0-3…
Selina: Well, there’s just… there’s just no way out of this. I mean, you know, not for a sitting Vice President… who’s lost Iowa and New Hampshire. You know what V.P. stands for? It stands for “victory perma-fucked.” I don’t deserve this. You know? Goddammit. I don’t, but you do. Because you are all losers! Every motherfuckin’ one of you! [pointing to Amy and Gary] Loser! Loser!
Selina: What are you talking about? What is it? Are we at war?
Kent: Ma’am, we’re America, we’re always at war.
Kent: The First Lady isn’t in a good place.
Selina: Oh. Hospital.
Kent: Mentally. POTUS has decided that he wants to devote more time to looking after her.
Kent: At any rate… he’s gonna resign.
Selina: Uh-uh. What?
Kent: Ma’am, you’re about to become the 45th President of the United States. It’s not a dress-rehersal, not a drill. You are going to be the president.
