Dael Orlandersmith ...
Ethel Finney, Impound Clerk


Mike bitterly finds the mayor congratulates Caitlin on three months in his team, not his own 5 years, and ends up with his own perfect gift passed on as if hers. As consolation, he dares her to join him in 'parking' Winston's beloved vintage Mustang throughout Manhattan. Partially due to Paul's ever-miss-parked rust-bin on wheels, that joyride turns into a nocturnal nightmare, with a cruel twist when the mayoral memory kicks in. As Mike temporarily promotes James from his PA to speech writer again, his PA job goes to Deirdre, whom even lover Stuart can't handle so close. Carter and Nikki may deny being vain about the ID pictures, each catches the other red-handed. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


James Hobert: Stuart, Mike told me to fire Deidre. And, ah, I have to admit, I'm a little afraid.
Stuart Bondek: Look James, the thing you have to understand about Deidre is- under her rough and vicious exterior...
James Hobert: She's a sweet and venerable woman?
Stuart Bondek: No, she the scariest bitch I've ever seen.

Mike and Caitlin's joy ride goes horribly wrong.
16 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The main story in this episode, is the Mayor's love for his Mustang convertible. The Mayor has been driving his precious ride into work and one day Mike and Caitlin decide to take the car out on a ride. After their ride around the city, they come back and Paul has parked in the Mayor's official parking space. They park in a councilman's space and before long, the Mayor's prize convertible is towed. Should not be a big thing until they learn that the Mayor has thousands of dollar in parking fines.

In another wild tale, sexy craving Deidre has applied for the position of Mike's secretary. That means that Deidre and Stuart will be working in the same office. Its not long before it grosses out the others.

There is also another story about Carter and Nikki getting their ID pictures made- but that story was less thrilling. But the rest of the show proved to be a immoral ride worthy of the series. Both the car story and Deidre tale was entertaining from beginning to end. One cannot help but laugh when the car problem finally comes to an end. It is a classic moment. A very enjoyable show.
