Scandal s03e06 Episode Script

Icarus

Livvie?! Olivia Hey I'm leaving.
I'll call you and daddy from Heathrow when I land, okay? It's only for a couple of days, just until my boss gets settled.
And I left casseroles in the freezer.
Time but I had my fun - I love you, Olivia.
- I know.
Time I've been loved and put aside time Good-bye, baby.
Time and my soul has been psychedelicized time time You know her better than I do.
- Is she okay? - Probably not.
Okay, this has gone on too long.
- We need to talk to her.
- Nobody goes in there right now.
- At least tell us what's going on.
- No.
- Huck - No! - What he said.
- Okay, well when you two guard dogs get a chance, please tell Liv that the Marcus campaign and the first lady's office have been calling all morning nonstop.
And she needs to decide right quick which job we're taking or we're gonna lost them both! We just climbed out of a money hole.
It was dark and unpleasant down there and we don't want to go back.
You better get that.
Stupid super spies.
Olivia Where are you going? This theory that Fitz's military record was somehow trumped up to hide the fact he shot down a passenger plane A plane my mother happened to be on? - You know how crazy that sounds? - Where are you going? There's probably only two people in the world who can tell me if this really happened.
One of those people is my father, and I can't ask him because he'd probably kill both of you, or maybe even all three of us to teach me some kind of sick lesson.
And the other's the President.
So that's where I'm going to the White House to ask him myself.
You like football, Leo? Not enough blood for me.
Maybe if they lost the helmets It's hard to say.
I'm more of a boxing fan.
Fair enough.
I look forward to watching you and Sally take home the title.
Now I'll leave you to it.
- All right.
- Bye, love.
Daniel Douglas so fun to say.
Daniel Douglas.
- Leo.
- If I'm Joe voter, is he the charming frat boy - or the emasculated potential date-raper? - Excuse me? And if I'm me, is he an asset or an obstacle to the whole endeavor? He's both.
He can work a crowd with the best of them, but sometimes he's been known to trip over his own two feet along the way.
In any case, I thought we might discuss Yes, okay, step one we build support.
We shave off the religious right, - but we do it quietly before you resign.
- How? We fire a blank.
I'm not sure I we hand out some cable news airtime to disgruntled pastors who say, in so many bitter biblical heartfelt words, how fed up they are with Grant's penis problem.
Cyrus Beene will send me out to deal - to reassure the religious leaders.
- That's right.
You got it.
And I make my rounds to the mega-churches, and instead of appeasing these disgruntled voices, I quietly make my case for a Langston ticket.
Your own multi-state campaign swing endorsed by the President himself.
Olivia's on her way.
You don't haul yourself all the way across town and slog through White House security to turn down a job.
- This is - "Weird" isn't the right word.
"Strange.
" No "Greek.
" Mythic and disturbing.
This is winged horses.
Wait, is it the horses who had the wings that melted? Or I don't know.
I can't remember.
My point is this is a Greek tragedy in the making.
Winged mistresses flying too close to the sun.
- She wins elections.
- She wins elections.
She wins elections.
You're welcome.
Mr.
President? Ma'am? Send her in.
Olivia welcome back.
Welcome home.
Can I have a moment alone with the President, please? Of course.
I am sure you two have things to discuss.
We'll talk later, Liv.
Get the ball rolling.
This is gonna be good.
Icarus with the wings.
It was Icarus who Never mind.
I'm surprised you're here.
Happy, but surprised And grateful.
I know.
I know you and I are not I want us to start over start fresh Did you fly air support for operation remington? What? Were you there, flying air support like you always said you did? Liv or were you flying another mission someplace else? This isn't you talking.
This is your boyfriend Jake talking.
- Just answer the question.
- I don't know what you're talking about.
I need an answer I don't know what you're talking about.
I'm not asking about the details.
I'm not asking you to compromise national security.
I'm asking, is it a lie? Are you lying about your military record? Are you lying to me? Like you did with Defiance? You want to talk to me about life About your boyfriend About how much I've missed you About the upcoming election, about the weather, great! I will tell you anything you want to know.
When it comes to you, I'm an open book.
But if you want to talk about operation Remington, you're not talking to me.
You're talking to the commander in chief of the armed forces.
You're talking to the leader of the free world.
So my only response to you is that Remington is a highly classified military operation, which means it does not exist.
So like I said, I don't know what you're talking about.
I can't work for you.
I did everything but roll your whore up in a rug and unfurl her at your feet! I begged her.
I bled for this! It's done, Mellie.
We find someone else.
You want to win? There is no one else.
Liv knows.
About what? About Remington.
She knows, Cy.
She knows everything.
Oh, morning.
- Got your coffee.
- You're late.
Where have you been? Getting your coffee.
Then there was traffic.
- There's an app for that.
- Oh, is there an app to help you get along with your coworker? - There should be.
- Tell the congresswoman when we know something, we'll call her.
- No, I don't know when that'll be.
- Where the hell is Olivia? - No idea.
- Liar.
I'm here.
What's the word? - Whose campaign are we running? - Josie Marcus'.
Seriously? I thought you'd be thrilled.
I am.
I mean, politically, ideologically, big "d" democratically Believe me, I'm over the moon.
But honestly, I'm also surprised.
- We thought for sure you'd go with the White House.
- Sitting President.
You know the lay of the land over there.
Also, there's the whole, you know, relationship thing.
This is a chance to make history To change the world.
Josie Marcus has the raw talent.
With our help, she could be the first female President of the United States.
With our help, she could win.
White hat, people.
Call Josie's campaign headquarters.
Tell them we'll be there in an hour.
Now this little number right here took first place at the Montana state fair.
Yeah, come on, guys, we can hit the gym together later.
Mmm! Mmm.
I told ya.
I only have two vices Shoes and butter.
Say you're elected the first female President of the United States.
You made it to the White House.
What's the very first thing you do? Change the sheets.
Okay, that's enough.
All right, hold on a second.
Now, you put those clips together like that Back-to-back Like I'm some kind of cartoon character.
All we did was find what's already out there.
Which is exactly what the other side will do.
They'll use this against you.
You can't be out there baking pies when Reston's touring the middle east.
- We're not just baking pies.
- All right, Candi, let 'em talk.
We didn't hire them so they could pinch our cheeks and give us blue ribbons.
We need to re-introduce you to the American public along with your small-town values, play up your military service.
We need more Eisenhower, less aunt Bea.
- And to do that, we need to raise some serious cash.
- PAC money.
We've already got over $6 million and counting $6 million might pay for the gas, but it sure as hell won't buy you the plane.
You want to walk to Iowa? You've done a great job mobilizing the grass roots, but you're getting pummeled by Reston's ads on the airwaves.
And your post-debate spike in the polls It's nearly gone.
It's time to respond with ads of your own Big media buys.
- Reston's already locked up the big donors.
- Then we unlock them.
Those people out there working their tails off, along with the millions of people who have pledged their support one crumpled dollar at a time They believe in me because I'm not accountable to big money.
You want to be mayor of Red Springs or Ralph Nader, turn your back on PAC money and large donations.
You want to win Iowa or New Hampshire and become the party's nominee? All right, line up the fat cats.
Let's just get this over with.
Congresswoman, this is Don Watson.
Don represents the sugar industry.
- High-fructose corn syrup, actually.
- Even better.
I mean, try making a lollipop out of a sugar packet.
Give it to me, baby give it to me, baby I may be from a landlocked state, but I've always been very pro-ocean farming.
I mean, heck, strap me in a wet suit and put me on a tractor and I'm good to go.
Well, I'm not sure increasing ethanol production will end warfare entirely, but I do entirely support it.
Love sugar.
Still sprinkle it on my cornflakes.
Every morning.
The drones have served us so well on the battlefield, why not allow police to use them for surveillance? Wow, that's music to my ears.
- Pleasure meeting you.
- Pleasure's all mine.
Thank you for coming in.
- Look forward to your support.
- You'll be hearing from us.
I need more.
- More what? - More information, more proof, more everything.
If I'm gonna pursue this, I need This is It's your mother, I know.
You need more, I'll get more.
- Jake - Yeah.
Be careful.
We're only digging up dirt on the most powerful man in the world.
How dangerous could that possibly be? Franklin Pierce Alcoholic, marginal war hero A nobody from a state of nobodies.
Next thing you know, the right people get their mitts on him, land on a catchy slogan "We polked you in '44.
We shall Pierce you in '52.
" Meet the 14th President of our great Republic.
Always the Professor.
That was not meant to be a lesson.
It was a warning.
Olivia Pope knows about Remington, and now she's working for Josephine Marcus.
If she thought she needed it, she'd use it against us.
She'd let Marcus use it against us.
She thinks she knows.
She thinks she knows because of Ballard, and he's yet to come across anything concrete.
And he won't.
Time's up.
Are you saying You shut down Marcus, I'll take care of Ballard.
- Kate.
- Hi, Jake.
You changed your hair.
It's longer.
- You like it? - I like it.
Do you still have access to the sub-basement archives at Langley? Why is meeting for coffee never just meeting for coffee? I mean, I was hoping for something more, but Yes, I still have my clearance level.
What do you need? The cockpit recording for this flight.
It's important.
It always is.
You know I live just a few blocks from here if you ever want something more than coffee.
I would love to, but I can't.
You found somebody.
Good for you.
Civilian? No way civilian.
Um Oh I'll call you if I find anything.
You said they loved me, so I bowled them over.
- And you did.
- It's just They don't think you can win.
It's the chicken and the egg.
Donors don't want to spend until they think you'll win, and you can't tip the polls without the money required for a big media push.
It's your image.
They're falling in line behind Reston because they know he's experienced and tough enough to go after Grant in the general.
He did it once.
He'll do it again.
I'm not going negative, Liv.
That's not who I am.
Let's get an interview on the books An in-depth profile in prime time, lots of eyeballs, with someone big, someone experienced, a Diane Sawyer, a James Novak.
We'll use it to convince the donors you've got the heft and the backbone to sit in the oval.
Harrison Wright.
What do you want? Well, since we worked so well together on jeanine Locke, I thought maybe you'd like another chance to serve your country.
The White House would prefer Pope and associates not to work on the Josie Marcus campaign.
Conflict of interest.
You understand.
Who we work for is Liv's business.
I can't get her to do something she doesn't want to do.
No one can.
Well, I'd like you to try.
I mean, you used to sell cars.
Right? I bet you're pretty convincing.
But if not, I understand.
And it's not the only reason I'm calling.
I had a state department briefing the other day.
It seems Adnan Salif has a visa application in.
It'll be denied, of course, given Salif's history and criminal tendencies.
But I did want to give you the heads-up, just in case Salif knows someone with enough juice to pull some strings.
Anywho food for thought.
You had a question for me, sir? Not a question.
An assessment.
You seem calm, Cy.
Do I? Yes, you do.
Olivia feels free to question my military record and all but accuse me of lying about it, and you don't seem the least bit worried.
Haven't brought it up once.
It's being taken care of.
How? Captain Ballard has been in service a long time.
He knows the rules.
He knows what happens when you disobey them.
There are times to obey orders And times to refuse them.
These aren't our orders, Mr.
President.
It's an internal matter outside our domain.
And unless you want B613 crossing into our territory Messing with your national security team, or your campaign I strongly suggest you wash your hands of this.
That'll be all, Cyrus.
These are surreal images we're seeing Almost hard to believe.
Rescue vessels have been circling the wreckage for hours now.
329 passengers boarded this flight which originated in Dulles, connecting in Reykjavik.
Unfortunately, at this hour, there are no survivors to report.
Hey, Olivia.
Uh There's something I There's something I need to tell you.
Olivia? Olivia, are you there? What was the last thing you said to her? - Have you been drinking? - Yes.
What was the last thing you said to her? I said "I love you.
" She was leaving, and I kissed her on the cheek.
And I said, "I love you.
" And did you? What? Love her? Olivia, why are you calling? I have so many questions I want to ask you, but I'm afraid you'll kill my friends if I do.
So, you know Let's just talk about the weather or, uh How I can't form attachments to people because my mother is dead, and my father is that thing that goes bump in the night.
Or You pick a topic.
One question.
What? You can ask me one question.
And you won't kill Jake, or Huck - I won't.
- Or anyone I love? I will answer one question.
Did you give the order to have my mother killed? No.
Did Fitz shoot down the plane that killed my One question.
What did you do?! What happened?! Olivia One thing I've learned in life, Olivia, is that the past is the past.
It's best if you leave it there.
You all set for your interview with Josephine Marcus? - That's tomorrow, right? - That's right.
Hey, have you seen my checkered Thom Browne tie? Oh, thank God.
If you're gonna borrow it I know put it back where I found it.
So - You know what you're gonna ask her? - Who? - Marcus.
- Oh, for the love of James, you gotta be prepared.
We're not discussing this.
Just tell me you'll ask about that bastard baby Cyrus! - What? - It's a fair question.
A lot of people care about adoption.
We care about adoption.
We are not discussing this.
James, I'm trying to help you here.
You're trying to get inside of my head, and it's not gonna work, not this time.
Fine.
That's fine.
Sit with the woman, toss a few softballs her way, become the new poster child for liberal media bias.
You must think I'm a moron.
No, seriously, what do you think I'm gonna ask her? Wouldn't know because we're not discussing it.
Maybe I'll start with her favorite color.
Oh, or what she listens to when she works out.
Whether she likes her eggs scrambled - or overeasy - Whether she never remarried because she's a lesbian.
I'm just saying The woman's almost 50 and still single.
We both know what that means.
Adoption and sexual orientation those are your talking points - for me? - Well You're a shameless monster Who loves you dearly! (Man) President Grant needs to ask himself, what kind of message is he sending to the good, churchgoing folks of this country? 'Cause we thought we elected a Christian, Frank.
And all the President's done is managed to make a mockery of his marriage vows and turn his faith, his God, which is why I'm organizing this rally.
I assume you've seen the news this morning.
Your people are restless.
Frankly, I don't know why they're going after Fitz right now when there's that former teenage whore gaining traction with the democrats.
She's a flash in the pan.
They know that.
What can I do to help, Cyrus? Are you free for dinner tonight? Not with me.
I wouldn't punish you that way.
But with the President and the first lady.
He wants to talk re-election strategy.
I'll let him explain.
I'll cancel my supper plans.
You know I'm nothing if not a team player.
I do appreciate it.
Hook, line, and sinker.
Tell me we don't make a great team.
Where have you been? - We could really use your help on Josie Marcus.
- I can't.
Not today.
I'm working on something secret - For Liv.
- Fine.
Do what you have to do.
But we need you.
So hurry up and get back in the game.
Governor Reston was recently quoted as saying that electing you to President right now would be tantamount to "letting a teenager "with a driver's permit drive a tank through a minefield in Iraq.
" What do you have to say in response? As someone who served in the Gulf war, I have the military and diplomatic experience to deal with any international situation that might arise during my presidency.
Also, I grew up driving a tractor, so I figure a tank can't be that much harder.
Funny.
But don't be funny when talking foreign policy.
Also, this is when you hit back against Reston's lack of military experience.
I've tried that strategy in past debates.
And that whole pivot and attack model It just it rings false.
It's not who I am, so next question.
Congresswoman, there was recently an article in a well-known men's magazine dedicated entirely to your legs.
Oh, no! Tell James novak any questions about my legs or my workout regimen are off-limits.
This is a question you're going to get again and again during the campaign.
Now be funny.
I'll just say, "no comment.
" Next question.
I get it.
You don't want to sling mud or pander to the sexism that will inevitably pop up during this campaign.
But ignoring the attacks on you being likable all the time Does not get you elected President.
You need to show your claws at some point.
Show you have claws.
You're too nice.
Nice got me this far Nice got you a congressional seat in Montana.
Nice doesn't get you President unless you want to be President of Candy land.
Listen, I know who I am, and I know what works with voters.
You don't have any voters yet Hey! I'm the one running for President here, okay, not you.
So stop trying to make me into someone I'm not! I'm sorry.
I'm gonna take a break.
So she's got a temper.
Huck.
What? You and me we're on the same team, right? I mean, I know I get on you about the super-spy stuff, but we're on the same team? Yeah.
And I don't ask you for favors Hacking me out of speeding tickets - Anything like that.
- No.
Well, now I need one A favor.
Adnan Salif is trying to get back into the country, and that cannot happen.
Can you make it impossible for that to happen? Is that something you can do? I can erase Salif's visa application from the system.
And that'll make it impossible to issue an inadmissibility waiver.
Good.
'Cause if Adnan Salif sets foot on U.
S.
soil I'm a dead man.
It's demoralizing Coming at those two hat in hand, begging for help.
We need the base.
Sally and Daniel Douglas are the base, no matter how much it pains you to spend time with them.
Don't play the saint in all this.
You hate those holy hillbillies as much as I do.
And the idea that we have to sit across from them pretending to be happy and normal as they coo at each other like a pair of fundamentalist lovebirds.
They've got problems of their own.
What kind of problems? He's got a wandering eye, evidently.
So Ms.
Bible Bully and I do have something in common after all.
How lovely.
Sally, I just wanted to break some bread and thank you for all your hard work these last four years.
Mr.
President, it's an honor and a pleasure.
I know you've sometimes felt shut out.
Sometimes? I want to apologize for that, and assure you that things will be much more inclusive in a second Grant/Langston term.
I know you've got some great ideas, and I want to make sure they're heard.
There's a spinach salad from the White House garden, and we had the chef find a recipe for South Georgia biscuits, just to give you two a taste of home.
Oh That is awfully kind of you.
Tell me, by inclusive, do you mean amenable to reverend Coles? I would never ask you to Oh, don't be silly.
I'm a team player.
And I'm sure if I were to explain to the reverend what good and God-fearing people you and the first lady really are After all, it's in the man's faith to forgive.
Well, thank you, Sally.
I'd appreciate that.
I've only told you about a hundred times, Mel, those tar heels of yours are never gonna make it to the sugar bowl until their boosters step up Oh, stop.
Shall we eat? That sounds lovely.
Does anybody mind if I say a few words first? Daniel Douglas, I don't think I've heard grace come out of your mouth in years.
Sally does the honors at our home.
Would it be all right, Mr.
President? Please.
Go ahead.
Let us pray.
Heavenly father, we ask that you bless this food to our use and us to thy service.
And keep us ever mindful of the needs of others.
Amen.
- Amen.
- Amen.
Hey, Robin, where's Batman? He's not here.
Oh, bummer.
You know what your problem is? Your shoulders they're all high and tense.
You're probably scared of the kickback You know, the backward momentum Yeah, I know what kickback means.
What are you doing here? Relax.
I'm not stalking you.
Well I don't need your help.
Oh, I think you do.
I've seen your targets.
Deep breath In, then out Real slow.
Then bang.
Now is not a good time.
It's about B613.
Look, I know you don't give a damn about my questions.
But I need your professional opinion here, huck.
In B613, is anyone able to get out and actually be normal? Jake seems sort of normal, but I don't really know him.
Or are you just completely messed up for the rest of your life? No offense.
Now's not a good time.
Welcome, pastor.
Thank you for coming.
Nice woodshed fancy.
- Pardon? - Let's not kid around.
That's what I am, right? The President's woodshed about to get the paddle for speaking out against his sins? Well, on the contrary.
I rather enjoyed your op-ed about the destructive effect of the President's behavior on our nation's moral authority around the globe.
You did? I found it a little over-the-top.
But I'm a man with little to no principles, and you're a man with many ironclad ones.
And I don't intend to bend them, not even for my dear friend Sally here.
Nor would I ever ask you to.
So if this isn't the woodshed We called you here to end your suffering.
To offer you the opportunity to support a President - who shares your strong principles and faith.
- Oh? Mm.
And who might that be? Your dear friend Sally here.
Remember to smile.
If he asks about the economy Tell tell the story about the bison who got drunk eating fermented apples.
- I got it.
- Five minutes, congresswoman.
Thank you.
What's going on over here? Nothing.
How are you feeling? Like my campaign manager is hiding something from me.
Congresswoman Your head's in the game.
I don't want to take it out.
Whatever it is, I can handle it.
A woman in the Reston camp leaked it to us.
On the other side of this door sit the leaders of Syria, China, and Iran.
On the other side of this door is America's future, success and failure, life and death.
Does America really want an inexperienced hand opening this door? Listen I know it's insulting.
I know it's sexist and way below the belt.
And we'll deal with this later, but right now you have to focus on this interview.
So take a minute - whatever you need - I'm fine.
- Josie.
- I'm fine.
Josephine Marcus War widow, first-term congresswoman, presidential hopeful.
Tonight, on "top of the hour," congresswoman Marcus sits down with James novak for her first prime time interview since becoming the breakout star of this year's Democratic primaries.
Is this a real-life cinderella story Or a political lightweight squeaking by on her down-home charm? You decide, on "Top of the Hour.
" Three two Congresswoman Marcus, thanks for joining us.
Or I should say, thank you for inviting me - into your lovely home.
- My pleasure.
Let's get right to it.
The Reston campaign says that you lack the experience to be President of the United States.
What what's your response to that? - Congresswoman Marcus? - Mm-hmm.
Um, there's something my grandmother used to do whenever I'd start dating someone.
I would tell her his name, and then she would say, "oh, what part of town does he live in?" That was her way of asking if my boyfriend was white.
Oh, yeah, my grandmother was an out-and-out racist.
So I know what prejudice looks like.
It's not about experience, James.
It's about gender.
Reston's saying I don't have the balls to be President, and he means that literally.
It's offensive.
It's offensive to me and to all the women whose votes he's asking for.
Uh, I'm sorry, are you are you saying that governor Reston is sexist? - Yes.
Yes, I am.
- What the hell is she doing? And it's not just governor Reston speaking in code about gender, it's everyone Yourself included.
Excuse me? The only reason we're doing this interview in my house is because you requested it.
This was your idea, and yet here you are, thanking me for inviting you into my lovely home.
That's what you say to the neighbor lady who baked you chocolate chip cookies.
This pitcher of iced tea isn't even mine.
It's what your producers set here.
Why? Same reason you called me "a real life Cinderella story.
" It reminds people that I am a woman without using the word.
For you it's an angle, I get that.
And I'm sure you think it's innocuous.
- But guess what? It's not.
You're pr - Congresswoman Marcus Don't interrupt me when I'm speaking.
- I have to stop this.
- Don't you dare.
You're promoting stereotypes, James.
You're advancing this idea that women are weaker than men.
You're playing right into the hands of Reston and into the hands of every other imbecile who thinks a woman isn't fit to be commander in chief.
Yes, governor, I'm talking about you.
Seven years I served in the United States army, which is seven more years than governor Reston ever served A fact you conveniently omitted from my intro.
How about soldier? Lieutenant? Yeah, I That was an oversight.
- I-I am sorry.
- Unbelievable! Let's So what did she offer you? Let me guess gay marriage back off the table.
No abortions for anyone ever.
Yes, and yes, on a silver platter, in exchange for our endorsement.
You were right.
She's planning to run against you.
Well, reverend, I like being married, and I believe in a woman's right to choose.
But how about you get to keep all that righteous indignation that fills your collection plate every Sunday, and President Grant and I go pray on some new tax breaks? The lord speaks through you, brother Beene.
Yeah.
I get that a lot.
The balls on that woman after all we've done for her.
- What kills me is she's right.
- We can't win without her.
Sally has a weakness.
Eh, what is it? Garlic? Silver bullets? Her husband More to the point Her jealousy.
Sally's not practical like me.
Daniel Douglas Langston has a wandering eye.
The man's a little hands-y.
We should use that.
- You got it? - When have I ever let you down? - I owe you one.
- Better make it two.
Someone deleted the catalog entry.
I had to go box by box.
Check her bag.
You're welcome.
That's right, Don.
Now when I'm in the oval office, I promise you there's gonna be a big ol' bowl of lollipops on the desk.
Uh-huh.
Thanks again.
Full commitment.
Strauss and Vasington are in, too.
We'll have enough for the first wave of ad buys in Iowa.
Good work, everyone.
Thank you.
I know you're not a hugger, but screw it.
Oh! My husband always said my big mouth was gonna get me in trouble someday.
- Or make you President.
- Mm.
Mm.
- Congratulations.
- You, too.
So you all you're really full-service, aren't you? You raise money, organize the ground game, bury secrets, and still have time to go out and make fake political ads.
You're wearing the same nail Polish as the shaky hand.
She needed to get angry.
We needed to get her there.
Is there a line you won't cross? We'll let you know when we find it.
Mr.
Wright.
Ah, that's funny.
Here, come in.
Come in.
Sit.
Mr.
Beene Cyrus.
Cyrus Do you understand how long it's been since Liv's been inspired by someone not just fighting the good fight, not just being the best at what we do But inspired? Liv wants to work for Josie Marcus.
I will work for Liv, not for you.
You understand I don't make empty threats? I understand that if you want to issue an inadmissibility waiver, you're gonna have to go tell the state on record that I, Cyrus Beene, want to bring this criminal back into the country.
I don't think you wanna do that.
Good luck with your candidate.
Good luck with yours.
Corey, Cyrus Beene.
I need you to issue a visa not an inadmissibility waiver, a whole new visa for Adnan Salif.
Hey.
What up, Robin? I don't know.
I'm I'm still struggling with the recoil.
So So let me give you a few pointers.
Don't be shy.
Step right up.
Here we go.
Seed is planted.
I'm watering and showing it love and waiting for it to bloom.
Anything else? Just make sure it does.
Bloom it's important.
You got it, sir.
Thank you, Mike.
Mr.
President.
When did you put a security detail on me? When I found out that B613 wanted you dead.
Thank you.
I appreciate the cover.
I can't say I wasn't surprised, though I wasn't sure where we stood.
Really? After all the missions we served together? This isn't about all the missions.
This is about one.
Where were you? What mission were you on when I was on Remington? - Let it go, Jake.
- I'd love to, but I can't.
What is your problem?! Since when do you have a death wish? I am telling you I am ordering you walk away! Whatever it was, whatever you did on that mission It's Command's Achilles' heel.
Finding it out is the only way I can ever be free from B613.
It might be the only chance I ever have of sleeping with both eyes closed again.
Or is it the only chance you may ever have of sleeping with her? I can't help you anymore.
You're on your own now.
Are you here to answer my question about what you were doing during Operation Remington? - You could come on the campaign trail.
We could try to be us again.
try to I don't know.
We could try.
You shouldn't have come here.
There is nothing you could do that I wouldn't forgive not a thing.
We both know that.
We learned the hard way.
Why won't you extend me the same courtesy? Don't do this.
Stop looking.
Stop digging.
Leave it alone.
It's in the past.
Just leave it alone.
Not until you answer the question.
Why is this so important to you? There was a global world airlines plane that went down.
- 329 people were killed.
- Olivia They said it was a mechanical failure something they could never quite figure out how a plane could just fall out of the sky.
That doesn't happen.
That never happens.
So they recalled the engine, but it turns out they didn't need to because it wasn't the plane at all.
Because what nobody knew it didn't crash.
It was shot down, right out of the sky.
Someone killed them all 329 of them.
They fell into the ocean.
And they died.
So I want you to answer the question.
Where were you during operation Remington? Like I said, I don't know what you're talking about.
One of the bodies in the ocean was my mother.
Do you still not know what I'm talking about? Fitz I don't know what you're talking about.
I was 12 When she died.
I was 12.
