"Did you do NO oppo-research on on our own candidate? How did this not come up??"
"The same reason it didn't come up that he moisturizes with minotaur-semen -- it's not one of the standard questions that you ask!!"
Jonah + running for POTUS + married to his step-sister + Woody Allen incest-jokes = awesome.
This first episode was just wow. They are not holding back anything. They have gone completely apes***-crazy.
In the previous episodes, I probably really enjoyed, understood 2-3 jokes that I wanted to quote. In this episode I was counting like 8-9 great jokes in just one minute. It was totally crazy, probably more than 40 great quotes compared to 2-3. They crammed an entire season into one episode. So many jokes that I can't even remember which one I want to quote.
- How are things on the Hill?
- Crazy as ever.
- Did Senator Isles try and... grab your ass?
- Oh, yeah.
- He used to say that mine was like a candy apple.
- Actually, Senator Isles is under investigation right now, so...
- For what?
- For the inappropriate...
- Oh, yeah, right. 'Cause that's bad now.
Selina's two-in-one burn on Amy and Dan was magnificent. The writers of this show are seemingly determined to make us miss the crap out of this when it's gone.
And yes, we're definitely cannonballing toward a Jonah-presidency, here. The only question is if Selina craves the spotlight so much that she's willing to become his veep once her campaign falters. Also great seeing Rhea Seehorn join the cast this season -- and it's clear that her character is gonna play a major role in Hugh Laurie's campaign's downfall very soon, for obvious reasons.
Ah, I did not think about that at all. Selina becoming Jonah's veep would be a great idea. Unless they want to make a spinoff with Jonah which seems the logical thing to do, they might not make Selina his veep.
