Jim can’t deal with her ish; he has to tell Mackenzie…who wonders why Mike Tapley is hitting on both of them. I can’t. Neither can Charlie who has to break it down into small words for her that Tapley’s saying he’s available for interviews. Jane Craig would never say something so stupid. She’d just sit in her hotel room for five minutes to get out a good cry then produce the shit out of the breaking news because she was just that good.
Tiny clusters…just exploded…in my brain…from so much stupidity.
He recovers to remember his phone call at the top of the episode just in time to get the White House email letting them know to get to the studio because the President is addressing the nation regarding a matter of national security. Charlie pieces it together and realizes that Kaley was the deus ex machina this week and asks her to re-read the Rock’s tweet confirming that the Rock has a cousin who’s a Navy Seal.
This all magically coalesces with him thinking, through the benefit of hindsight, that they got bin Laden. Charlie rallies the staff to go down to the newsroom to…sit around and wait for someone to give them the story?…and Lonny’s still there to drive Will. Nice continuity? Then Lisa sets Jim up to exposit that whatever it is it’s either very good or very bad news.
SQUEE! The people I actually like are still on the show. They’re having ridiculous conversations about Maggie and whether or not cell phones interfere with a plane’s navigation system and they still manage to sell that pabulum like it’s Noel Coward.
More chemistry than Will and Mackenzie.
Don left his phone on the whole (one hour) flight from DC and it’s dead so he wants to know what he missed. Elliot’s cooing over an email from his daughter while Sloan reads a “fan” email both telling her to be a lady and cover up and to spill water down her shirt because hahaha Sorkin’s not a sexist…he just writes like one. Finally Elliot gets to the WH email. They all stop cutesying because this is serious. Don wants Sloan to switch seats with the doofus next to him but the grim flight attendant will have none of it, because she’s a stereotype who probably once refused to give Sorkin that fifth bottle of Jack on a commuter flight to San Francisco and he swore he’d get her back.
Flying the friendly skies.
Lonny and Will are stuck in traffic in Hollywood while Will hectors some guy named Andy to confirm whether or not it’s bin Laden. Will’s “high” so he’s working a second phone while talking about All the President’s Men and badgering Lonny about the traffic, whining about what a great city New York will be if they ever finish building (like LA isn’t riddled with potholes and construction) proving that he’s insufferable at a cellular level.
