I need to get into the habit of dropping this quote “These things aren’t supposed to happen to me. I went to Detroit Mercy”.
The screen grab above led to a terrible “Vassar Versa” joke… that had a “Vasser Versa” punch line.
It was a rough episode… but it did have a few things of interest.
1.) We finally learned what happened to Maggie. I’m surprised they knocked it out all in one episode tho’. Ya know… it could be that I dislike her character and I’m a little weirded out by her eyebrows, but I just watched the episode and I already forgot why they went to Uganda. The small story arch however was pretty touching. I have to agree with the Uganda orphanage teacher, blondes are trouble.
2.) Jim is being pulled off the Romney Bus Tour, so I guess we’re going to be subjected to him falling for Maggie again. He managed to pick up a mercy fuck from Hallie before going back to New York tho’.
3.) The Red Team - I need to reach out to some of my old Newspaper friends tomorrow to ask if we ever had a “red team”. Mind you… I worked at a small newspaper and we never really worked on any stories where we had to isolate a story before proofing. It was however a term that i had never heard of.
I’ve seen a number of other movies that specifically cover investigative journalism and I don’t ever recall there being a red team.
I’m sure its just something I don’t know about. I’m hoping to discover however after reading some re-caps online that Red Teams are a Sorkin creation.
Lastly… no song drop? What gives?
