Mackenzie Allen: Tell me, when exactly did my Presidency turn into a time share?
Rod Calloway: What are you...?
Mackenzie Allen: My California schedule. Looks like you and Dickie are selling me off in 5-minute blocks.
Rod Calloway: No one's selling your time, Mac.
Mackenzie Allen: Really? Lets see.
Mackenzie Allen: [She starts reading from her schedule] "POTUS", that would be me, "will be joined in limo by business man Caleb Talben. On arrival to groundbreaking, POTUS will be escorted by real estate developer, Mike Muller". Ah, my personal favorite: "POTUS will ride in elevator to suite with investment banker Victoria Voles". I just hope for Ms. Voles' sake, it's a tall hotel.
Reporter: Madame President, any chance you'd care to comment on this mornings USA Today poll? You're numbers show you and the Speaker are now tied among likely voters.
Mackenzie Allen: [to Nathan, faking confusion] Mr. Speaker, are you running for something?
Nathan Templeton: Me?... Yes: the door.
Kate Allen: [to Becca and Horace after they decided to invite their friends to the White House for a party] It's been 200 years since the White House burned down, I'd like to keep the streak alive.
Nathan Templeton: False modesty doesn't suit you.
Mackenzie Allen: Nor you.
Syndi Saltzman: [explaining to the President the event they are heading to] After the National Anthem, Lucy Bridges, the President's niece, will read a short poem. Speaker Templeton will make brief remarks and introduce you. Two shovels and some prearranged loose dirt will be stage right. After the speech, you and the Speaker will do the honors. Kelly will have the press pool pre-positioned to make the shot.
Rod Calloway: [enthusiastically] And that's our picture of the day.
Mackenzie Allen: [in disbelief] The Speaker and I flinging dirt?
Richard 'Dickie' McDonald: [On Air Force One while it's being held hostage, talking on his cell phone with Kelly] I'm telling you, Kelly, you know more than I do.
Kelly Ludlow: There aren't a whole lot of details. Aren't you getting anything from the Secret Service?
Richard 'Dickie' McDonald: I don't think the agents like me very much.
Kelly Ludlow: [sarcastically] That's hard to believe.
Richard 'Dickie' McDonald: You're actually enjoying the fact that I may get blown up.
Kelly Ludlow: Our, "cares about pollster" numbers may take a short term hit, but...
Horace's friend: [to Horace, during a party at The White House] Lincoln's ghost... he like lives here, right?
Horace Calloway: Yeah, go check it out man, first room on the right.
Mackenzie Allen: So let me understand this. We have half of the Secret Service at the airport, FBI, SWAT teams, we have a spy satellite that can read a license plate from space, and my major source of information is cable news? What if the Chinese invade? Am I gonna hear it first on talk radio?
