Scandal s03e15 Episode Script

Mama Said Knock You Out

Noah! Olivia! It's been a while.
Too long.
I saw that sit-down you did on Dominique Strauss Khan.
- Nicely done.
- Thank you.
- What's going on? We're gonna have to push the interview.
- Olivia.
- We just need an extra hour or so.
It's live.
I'm not at liberty to discuss it, but the President is in an important meeting, and it's running long.
Uh, w-we'll start with the rest of the family.
Oh, I'd like to, but the deal was for a sit-down with the whole family.
In a live prime-time interview that we've been promoting for weeks.
I'm asking you to work with me, to be flexible, to give me at least an extra half-hour.
Okay, while I what Read the phone book on national television? - Olivia, you know how this works.
- Noah, listen We are going live in 64 minutes, either with the members of the first family or with me wildly speculating on why the Grants are suddenly unavailable for an interview they committed to weeks ago.
It's up to you.
Where are they? They're in the bedroom.
Jerry, Karen.
We need to talk.
Be nice.
- What do you mean, "be nice"? I'm nice.
Be nice to them.
Ask Jerry about lacrosse.
He scored a goal that won the game.
I know that.
I read the e-mails.
And I am nice to them.
Karen was the lead in the play.
Make sure to say something about that.
I know how to do this.
They're my kids, too.
Just be nice.
Mellie.
It's gonna be okay.
- Is it? - Yes.
We are happy.
We are together.
We are a family.
Everything's fine, okay? Happy, together, family.
Yes.
Okay.
We can do this.
We can do this.
- What was the name of the play? - What? Karen's play What was it again? - "Our town.
" - "Our town.
" Okay.
You ready? Let's do this.
Honey, I didn't know if you were still a vegan.
I think it's something made with nuts? I'm fine with salad.
Well, as long as you're eating.
So, I heard your big goal means big green looks good for regionals, Jerry.
That's fantastic.
Thanks.
And, Karen, I bet you were terrific in "Our town.
" Dad.
I want to tell you that your mother and I really appreciate you guys coming down here to help out with the campaign.
We know it's been tough these past few months.
And it means a hell of a lot to us, so don't worry about this interview, all right? You'll be prepped.
It's gonna be easy.
And at the end of the day, let's all just remember that we love each other.
Yeah.
Fine.
The department of education budget from the past decade.
Picked it up on my way from the office.
You wouldn't believe how much Ohio allocates for chicken nuggets.
- You can scratch healthcare off the list.
- Nothing? Our government spends $20 mil a year on penis pumps.
Any of that going to B613? I don't think so.
Any luck finding Adnan? None of the hotels I showed her picture to recognized her.
I left her another voicemail, but knowing her, she's probably in the wind.
What's going on here? Liv thinks if we separate B613 from their money supply, we can starve them to death.
A reasonable plan.
Except we can't find the money.
We've been through the budget of almost every department Defense, homeland security Agriculture, healthcare.
Why don't we call it a night? First thing tomorrow, we work our contacts Justice department, congressional budget office, C.
I.
A.
See if there are any line items they're not supposed to touch.
Any luck, we can narrow our search.
We shouldn't be doing this.
It's suicide.
What are you talking about? Taking down B613.
You don't take down B613.
You run you hide.
Or you die.
And B613 survives.
- It always survives.
- Not anymore.
- What about Quinn? - What about her? We have to get her out first.
I tried that, Huck.
She pulled a gun on me.
But we have to try.
Huck.
You miss her.
I miss her, too.
But she made her choice.
She walked away.
- Tell me again.
- I already told you.
Just want to make sure I got it.
What's there to get? I come home.
Huck was there.
He pushed me against a wall, we argued, and he left.
And that's it? That's it.
What'd you argue about? What? You said you argued.
We I don't know, mostly about how I didn't appreciate him slamming my face into a wall.
- Why was he there? - What? - Why was Huck waiting for you in your apartment? - I don't know.
- He had to want something.
- I don't know.
- I'm not his keeper.
- He didn't say? Look, I don't care why he came.
What does it matter, anyway? I am done with Pope & associates.
I am done with Huck.
You want me to kill him? 'Cause I'd do that for you, Robin.
I'd kill Huck in a second if you wanted me to.
No.
Don't.
But thank you.
That's sweet.
Come on.
We have a job to do.
Let's get to work.
Hi, Dmitri.
Dmitri Belenko Former Ukrainian organized crime, now believed to be an advance man for Ivan Yushkin.
Ivan was behind the 2011 Kiev market bombing that killed three British tourists.
I remember.
SZRU had Dmitri in bucharest in late 2012, but he went off the grid and apparently inactive until he showed up outside Baltimore three days ago.
- Baltimore? - We had eyes on him, Mr.
President.
He's gone? He is gone, sir Disappeared.
See if he was picked up by another agency.
- We've asked.
- Ask again.
Dismissed.
Cyrus.
Sir.
Good to have you back.
It was a beautiful funeral, Cy.
I'm going to need more prep time with Jerry and Karen.
Why? Just want to make sure that they're ready, that everyone's on the same page with their answers.
Fitz, when Don't worry.
We'll be lucky if he gets two words out of 'em.
I don't want Noah Baker to trip them up.
They can handle it.
I wouldn't have agreed to the interview otherwise.
There's a lot at stake here.
Fine.
Take whatever time you need.
It's just that this might be the most important interview of the campaign.
I said fine.
Can we not discuss my kids right now? Bullfrog, Utah.
I go there tomorrow.
Also Possum Grape, Arkansas.
Apparently, the goofier the name of the town, the more the campaign needs me there.
Mm.
- Andrew.
- What? My children are here.
I don't see them.
Mm! You like it there? Or there? Mellie? Both.
I like both.
The interview will last for 48 minutes, with two commercial breaks of three minutes each.
So, how many people are actually gonna watch this thing? We can't know for sure, but previous interviews with your parents have had audiences of up to 15 million viewers.
Adding the two of you should give that total a solid bump.
So maybe 17? Maybe.
And when you say it's live, do you mean live live, - or is there gonna be a tape delay? - Jerry.
Sorry.
I-I just want to know, you know? If I say something stupid, can I take it back? It's going to be live live, so no.
But I'm sure you'll both do fine.
Just be yourselves.
Will do.
Change of plans I need you to look into the kids.
Do we think they're funding B613? They're about to go on national television.
We need to get to know them a little better before America does.
Andrew.
Olivia.
Busy day.
Always.
There's no rest in a Presidential campaign.
Andrew.
Yes.
Stay away from her.
What? She's the first lady of the United States, and you are trying to be vice President.
Stay away from her.
What's your point? Andrew.
Do you have a point? The last thing this campaign needs is another sex scandal.
Stay away from her.
Glass houses, Olivia.
Jerry works on the school paper, plays lacrosse 'cause that's what rich people do.
Karen does theater, gets straight A's.
What are we looking for here Drugs, cheating on their SAT's? - A preggo townie? - I'm not sure.
All I know is that when I talked to them this morning, something was off.
I can't say what it was exactly, but it was definitely something.
So you want us to stay on this.
Even though we're kind of in the middle of a war with a top-secret spy organization? - That can wait.
- Good.
But only until tomorrow.
Tomorrow, we pick our swords up again, - and we're back in the game.
- Copy that.
Olivia Pope.
Stop digging.
I don't know what you're talking about.
You're looking into B613, and you may think that your inquiries look harmless or that they don't draw attention, but they do.
B613 has trip wires in every computer system in every building in this town.
Two days ago, your people were traipsing through the DOD's redacted budgets.
This morning, you were poking around the files of the congressional budget office.
If I hadn't called in some favors with some old associates of mine, men more loyal to me than they are to Jake Ballard, well, we both know what B613 does to its enemies.
Don't play this game anymore, Olivia.
Then tell me.
How do they do it? How do they get their money? How are they funded? You told me I'm supposed to drag everyone into the light.
That means B613, too, dad.
Help me.
Goodbye, Olivia.
For this interview, we need to go for "sweet, wholesome.
" How about the blue? You want to wear the blue? Why are you still with him after everything he's done to you, to us? Your father and I are fine.
Our marriage is stronger than ever.
- He's a cheater.
- Karen.
Nobody is perfect.
Nobody.
Headed out tomorrow morning.
You know the drill.
No news, stick to the speech, rally the base, and keep the spotlight pointed directly at you and your agenda.
Wish I could go with you.
To rural Arkansas? Are teenagers really that rough? They're barely speaking a word to me.
Just means they're independent.
I envy you.
Yeah? You want to trade for a while? Guess the grass is always greener.
- Hello, Olivia.
- Andrew.
I'll let you two talk.
When you get back, I want to see you on the tennis court.
You seem to love getting your ass kicked, sir.
Oh, trash talk.
Sad.
Good guy.
Yeah.
I want to go over the interview questions one more time.
Don't get cold feet on me, Ivan.
If you do, I promise you're gonna regret it.
Dmitri never showed up for the meet, and Ivan is spooked.
He thinks someone's onto us.
Maybe it's time we put the brakes on all this.
I mean, it's gotten a little out of hand, don't you think? You're scared.
No, I just don't like it when people go missing.
Oh, honey.
You're looking for a way out of this but there isn't one.
We're moving ahead You and me.
At least until I decide otherwise.
So, Huck was already inside when you got home? Charlie! I just want to be clear.
Huck was already inside? Yes.
- And? - And what? What happened? I told you what happened.
I come home, Huck's already inside waiting for me, then we argue, and he slams me into a wall, and he leaves.
So you argue, and then he slams you into the wall.
Yeah.
I don't know why this is such a big deal.
Before, you said he slammed you into a wall, - then you argued.
- Same difference.
No.
Very different.
Look, it it's not even worth discussing.
I don't even know why I bothered to tell you about it in the first place.
You bothered because you know you don't ever keep things from me, right? Right.
Yeah.
I'm sorry.
I just He was there, and he was yelling, and he slammed me into a wall, and it all happened so fast.
I was mixed up, Charlie.
Maybe you should move in with me.
Huck's been breaking in.
You're not safe.
No, I'm fine.
It's fine, really.
I'll change the locks, I have a gun, and I made it pretty clear to him this time that he'd better not mess with me.
After he slammed you into the wall.
Right.
Or before? You're not sure.
Can I I-is it okay if I drill for a bit? Go ahead.
You ready to tell us where Ivan is? Go to hell.
You first.
I want answers, you son of a bitch! Tell command to return my calls.
Abby.
What do you need? What is it? It's Jerry, Liv.
Huck found out he's been running an anonymous anti-Grant Twitter account.
"Dozens die in east Sudan riot.
" "Fuehrer Fitz's response Working on his serve.
" "Fascist, warcriminal, " You get the idea.
The latest post is from this morning.
What kind of damage are we looking at? How many followers? A couple thousand peanuts.
Huck tied the account to a dummy IP address before taking it offline.
None of them will ever know it was him.
- Thank God.
- Oh, there's something else.
Seems he did a little online shopping last week.
You want to explain this? Seriously? You're searching through my stuff? What is this, North Korea?! What, are you gonna tweet about it? I didn't say anything that isn't true, and you can't stop me from posting.
See, that's where you're wrong.
Your account's been shut down.
This little stunt of yours is over.
You can't do that! Grow up, Jerry.
Does mom know you barged into Jerry's room without asking? I hope you know there's no way in hell you're wearing this tonight.
Karen! Ohh! Mellie.
We are not talking about this.
Mellie.
We are not talking about this.
You have an interview that's going out to the entire world, - and - I am aware of the schedule.
Everything will be fine.
Do you think Karen's fine? I think Karen is my daughter, and I will take care of it.
Harrison.
Liv, you need to come to the office now.
I received a phone call from a colleague who asked if I transported Marie Wallace from Mongolia to the States.
I'm not above getting a little dirt under my nails to make a buck, but this has gone too far.
My mother is wanted by every intelligence agency in the country.
Why not go to the FBI or the CIA? So I can swap what I know for a life sentence in Guantanamo? That's if I make it there before she has someone slit my throat.
You have the means and the access to ensure my safety.
This firm is not a haven for criminals who want to flip on their bosses because they suddenly realize they're in over their heads.
Liv.
Can I have a minute? I wasn't as innocent back then as you think.
And, yeah, she skipped town on me, but I I owe her.
Details, contacts, everything you two were planning, and who you were planning it with.
You and your mother have a lot in common.
You both want what you want on your own terms.
But I'm not saying another word until I have what I want Immunity.
Find David and see what he can do.
I didn't say you could come in here.
Karen, I don't know what you think you saw, but believe me, you are very much mistaken.
The only mistake, mom, was that I saw you.
- Karen - What, mom?! You were on your knees with Uncle Andrew.
I saw you.
It was disgusting.
And you know what the worst part about it is? This whole time, I've been blaming dad when you were the liar, you were the cheater, you were the one doing everything.
- You are being dramatic.
- Shut up! Karen! Shut up and stop lying and get out of my room! I'm not staying here.
I'm going back to school.
- You can't.
- I said get out of my room! Give him to me.
Who? Dmitri Belenko.
I don't know who that is.
You know exactly who it is.
We had eyes on him.
You took him.
We know you took him.
And now you want your ball back.
This is not a game, Ballard.
No, it's not.
But let's suppose I did know who this Dmitri was A terrorist maybe working for Ivan Yushkin who popped up in Baltimore three days ago Just making this up, obviously.
But if someone like that did exist and I had him, why on earth would I give him to you? So you can puff out your chest and announce his detention at a swing-state pancake breakfast? I am the commander in chief.
And I am command, which means you don't tell me to do anything, because I'm not your bitch.
You are the President.
Your job is to shake hands, hold babies, pose with prime ministers, and sit down to interviews with your family.
You comfort people, and you look pretty, and you talk tough.
You don't do anything.
I decide if there is a war.
I decide if a world leader dies.
I decide what to do with the Dmitris and the Ivans.
I decide if America sleeps at night.
I decide if America endures.
This is not a game, Mr.
President, and you're not getting your ball back.
You forget that I Lauren, who's in there? Jake Ballard, sir.
Cyrus.
Cyrus, do you need something? Cyrus! Jake.
Jake, let him go.
Jake! I'm gonna let you go now, okay? You calm down, all right? Cyrus, you okay? Cyrus! Cyrus! He killed my husband! - You let me go! - Cyrus! He killed James! He killed James! - Let me go! - Stop! Let me go! - Let me go! - No! Back off! I said back off! Cyrus! I should go.
Jake.
I'm sorry for your loss.
It could be argued that James did this to himself.
He's a grown-up Was a grown-up.
It could be argued that he knew what he was getting himself into.
But the man I married, the man I had a child with, he was foolish enough To think he lived in a world where Where the vice President of the United States shouldn't be able to murder her husband in cold blood and get away with it.
Silly.
He believed in fairy tales.
But if James had lived, if he had gone public, he would have brought down Sally and our administration and the entire executive branch of the U.
S.
government, so I suppose Jake was just doing his job Serving at the pleasure of the President, just like the rest of us.
Morris.
Ms.
Pope.
Ohh, no cupcakes? Couldn't get to the bakery today, sorry.
Hello.
Olivia.
How are you? What do you want? I want Adnan back.
So you can kill her? I know you think you're on the right side of this, but you're not Believe me, you're not.
What I know is that you are a terrorist, a traitor to your own country.
Maybe.
But I'd rather be a traitor than what you are, Livvie.
Cleaning up those people's messes Fixing up their lives.
You think you're family But you're nothing but the help.
And you don't even know it.
You don't know what you're talking about.
Oh, I do.
I do.
And if that's all you want out of your life, baby I guess it's none of my business.
So I'm gonna stay out of it Just as long as you stay out of mine.
Rosen's talking to his people at justice.
He'll come through with a deal.
Ratting out your partner to save your own hide How long does that horrible taste remain in your mouth? If it weren't for Liv, I would've done eight years - Federal.
- When Clearwater imploded, I ran.
I was scared.
I expected you to do the same, not pile all of your sins You expected me to lay down, - roll over, and play dead! - I never would have turned on you.
I did what I had to do! We could have started over Together.
Together? Us? Maybe this is it This immunity deal.
Maybe it's our chance to start over.
Stop.
We could be good for each other.
Wouldn't that be a nice change of pace? All this deal means is we're even.
Are we even? What? You're on camera in about an hour, so we're gonna need to switch you to coffee.
It's not happening.
The interview You need to cancel it.
I can't just cancel it.
Then what are we paying you for? For another four years in this house, which is not going to happen if you don't put the scotch down right now and do something about your children, because believe me, it's going to be much worse for them if they don't do this interview.
The media attention, the press speculation, Facebook, Twitter They won't get a moment's peace, and you know it! It's not four years ago.
They're not children anymore, so the best thing for everyone would be if you Would be for you to cancel the interview! I will see if I can push it.
We're gonna have to push the interview.
We're going live in 64 minutes.
Where are they? We need to talk.
I'm not going on TV and lying.
Why don't we just sit down and talk this thing out? Okay, you talk, I'll listen.
Okay, why am I the only one dressed here? Uh, something's come up.
I'm trying to push the interview.
What? What's come up? Is this more of your political crap? I thought we put that to bed.
We're not doing it, dad.
You don't pull a stunt like this just before we're supposed to go on the air.
Put on your clothes now.
- Fitz.
- No! Put on your clothes.
You don't want to do it for me, at least do it out of respect for your mother.
Respect for our mother? Why? She doesn't have any respect for you.
What are you talking about? She's doing it with Uncle Andrew, dad! I saw her! Fitz.
Fitz! I need you to stop right now.
I need you to stop and think about what you're about to do.
Were you gonna tell me? After the interview, Fitz.
Let's just talk.
- I'm done talking.
- Oh, now, wait Mr.
President.
Mr.
President.
- Did you get anything from Dmitri? - Lots.
Actually, it was agent Perkins who got him to talk.
I'm telling you, boss, the kid's a natural with a drill - Where's Ivan? - It's all in there.
Time of the meeting.
Name of the hotel.
Nice work.
Agent Perkins, a word.
Why did you call me here? Command sent me to find out what you want.
I need to talk directly to Jake.
He won't talk to you.
And beating up B613 agents isn't going to make him talk to you, so I'm here to find out what you want.
What do you want, Huck? I want him to let you go, to set you free.
I want you out of B613.
I want you safe.
Oh, so now you want to rescue me? Last week, you wanted to kill me.
What's changed? What's changed? You know what's changed.
No.
See, I'm confused, Huck.
How does this go? What are the rules? When you licked my face, when you put your tongue on my cheek, apparently that was just what you needed to get in the mood to rip out my molars, right? But your tongue in my mouth, that's different? You put your tongue in my mouth, and now I deserve to live? That's a thing? That's how it goes? Yeah.
Yeah.
That's how it goes.
Not an awful way to kill some time.
Not at all.
We got a thing going on mm.
I never would have turned on you.
We both know that it's wrong but it's much too strong To let it go now We meet every day at the same café But now let's call it even.
6:30 and no one knows she'll be there holding hands - What are you doing here? - Oh, I figured you'd be free.
This fake job of yours can't keep you too busy, now, can it? Actually, I am busy.
I'm preparing a lecture on the great auk.
Thanks for dropping by, Jake.
Do I need to call security? What you need to do is stay out of my business.
Your business? Yes.
You're not command anymore.
That's my title.
And when I find out that you've been in touch with my agents, that you met with some of my people at the DOD And CBO, "A," it makes me curious about you're up to and, "B," makes me wonder if the terms of your retirement need to be revisited.
Do they need to be revisited? It's hard, isn't it, being the man who makes the decisions, having that burden, bearing that cross? Most people have family and And loved ones to talk to.
But people like us, we only have each other.
Well, that's the reason you're here, yes? I-I mean, the real reason To look in my eyes and remind yourself that others have walked this path before you.
Well, not that you ever admit it.
God forbid we should show weakness.
Better to say that you're here on business, to threaten me and flex your muscles.
But all that's just pretense, isn't it? A way to feel less alone in the world, to see that I, too, have stood in your shoes? Well, guess what.
Look.
You're alone! The path that you walk is not my path.
The shoes that you stand in are not my shoes.
We are not equals, nor will we ever be.
You are a-lone.
Or is there something else you wanted to ask me? No.
But thank you For reminding me that when I decide to kill you, I need to do it all by myself.
Mm-hmm.
I'm going in there.
That's a mistake.
This is not just some sleazy affair, Mellie and I.
You need to leave.
Your campaign trip it starts now.
There's a plane waiting for you.
I'll leak to the press you got that shiner playing tennis with the President.
When a reporter asks, run with it.
Olivia.
Go! We should get some ice for your hand.
Let me look at it.
Fitz.
How long? What? How long have you been screwing Andrew? How long have I Are you serious? Does it matter? It matters.
So, you can cheat and I can't.
Is that it? Well, that is one hell of a double standard.
- It matters! - Seriously? Fitz, let's not pretend that you are the victim.
You turned me away.
What? After Jerry was born, you turned me away.
- You stopped wanting me.
- Fitz.
You wouldn't let me touch you.
And when I asked you about it, what did you say? We don't need to go into that.
What did you say, Mellie? What did you say? That having a baby changed me, that I wasn't a sexual person anymore.
That having a baby changed you, that you weren't a sexual person anymore.
You made it clear that that part of our marriage was dead, that you were dead inside.
I said that because There were reasons.
You turned me away.
Were you screwing Andrew when you told me that? That's not But you're screwing him now.
Are you screwing him now? Are you?! Yes.
So you're not dead inside.
So you are a sexual person.
Because you're not turning Andrew away.
- I don't see what that has to do with - You don't get it.
You really don't get it? If you are saying that I am to blame for your affair with Olivia I am saying you ruined our marriage.
What?! You! You ruined our marriage.
You shut me down.
You locked the door.
You killed us.
I would never have cheated.
I would never have gone looking elsewhere, but I'd spent 10 years with a wife who wouldn't let me touch her.
And I never blamed you.
It wasn't your fault you didn't want me.
"Poor Mellie.
My poor wife's dried up.
She can't control her body or her libido.
" But it turns out that was a lie.
It wasn't that you didn't want sex, it was that you didn't want me because you're all hot and bothered for Andrew.
And I have spent all this time feeling guilty, feeling like a monster, feeling like I broke us! And it was you.
You did this.
You ruined our marriage.
You killed us! You killed us, Mellie.
Don't you see that? Don't you see what you did? We never had a chance.
Those kids never had a chance at growing up with two loving, happy parents.
Don't you dare put this on me.
I have given my life for you.
If you knew what I have done to get you where you are What have you done, Mellie? All you've done is deny me love and scheme to have power.
You tell me one thing you have done, one thing that you have sacrificed, one thing that you have lost because of me.
Because I lost my marriage.
I lost my wife.
What have you lost? What have you lost? I'm sorry to interrupt, but we need to focus on the problem What have you lost, Mellie? We have to sit down with a reporter in less than - What have you lost?! - Fitz.
I'm talking to my wife! Liv, I'm sorry.
Where are you going? - Home.
- Home? - Home, Cyrus, I said home.
- You can't.
- No, no, no, you can't! - Why? Because if you go home, I can't I don't mean to play the "dead husband" card, Liv, but I can't see through the fog right now.
And if I can't see through the fog, I can't do my job.
The sky will fall.
And I won't be able to stop it, but you can.
Like it or not, Olivia Pope can play through the pain.
Tell me we're not the help, Cyrus, that I am not some maid with a mop in my hand cleaning up messes whenever they ring the bell.
If you can do that for me I'd be lying.
You know the job, Olivia.
You know what we do.
Don't you resent it? Of course I resent it.
But somewhere in this head of mine, behind the fog, behind the anger, is my faint recollection that what we do is important, that my husband died for a reason, that his death matters.
So, instead of going home and crying about it like I'm going to do, I need you to get back in there, back in that little white building with all those miserable people inside of it And do the job for both of us.
Because it's not just that family you're putting back together.
It's the whole damn country.
Olivia.
I am so sorry.
I let my anger spill over.
- I should have never - I'm working.
I am at work.
This is my job.
- I didn't mean what I said.
- No.
Listen to me.
All of this your regret, your apologies You need to direct it towards your children, - towards your wife.
- Livvie.
We are 20 minutes away from a live interview with a very important journalist that will be seen by tens of millions of people around the world.
So right now, you are going to fix your family because it is not my place.
I am at work! This is my job.
If this interview turns into a disaster, then I will have failed at my job, and I cannot afford to fail at my job right now because it is all I have left! Go.
Can we come in? Are you here to yell at us? No.
Sau mein.
The Chinese make it on new year's.
If the noodles stay unbroken, you live a long life.
- What are you doing here? - What do you mean, what am I doing here? I live here.
I moved in just a couple hours ago.
Called my landlord, broke my lease.
The bastard kept my security deposit.
But, well, if that's the cost of keeping you safe Safe? From Huck.
In case he decides to stop by again.
You get to keep the apartment, and I get to keep my eye on you.
How great is that? To unbroken noodles.

Fresh from Olivia Pope's computer.
The President's campaign schedule, complete with a make-up of his security detail, secret service shift changes, exit routes, contingency plans, and the contingencies to the contingencies.

The interest in this interview is just epic, Tanner.
Ella.
As much as the Grant family has been scrutinized in the press, still very little is known about the children.
And with Sally Langston's massive lead amongst the family-values voter, this interview could have serious impact on who takes the white house in November.
