Second Kid (as Omar Sharif Scroggins)


When Mike hears Caitlin already exhausted the mayor's senatorial campaign funds, he bids to take over by bringing in major funds contributor Lindsay Shaw. Alas, first she keeps listing demands, then she decides to run against Winston, so Mike's only hope is to dare her to a TV debate which the knucklehead must be trained to win. The staff won't volunteer to chaperon the new intern, until the girls and Carter meet college hottie Scott. After Paul's mother in law kicked him out and Mike forbids his camping in the office, Carter and Stuart put him up a gruesome night for Super Bowl tickets, or so they think. Written by KGF Vissers
