Scandal s04e15 Episode Script

The Testimony of Diego Mu?oz

- How's that? - Perfect.
- No teeth? - No teeth.
So, after this announcement, you'll kiss the rings of the leaders of the Senate Rules Committee, do a roundtable of soft-ball interviews with the press, and then, come Thursday, Congress will confirm you as Vice President with an overwhelming majority.
Are you excited? More nervous.
Oh, that's only natural.
Susan.
How's my girl? She is great, Cy.
Aren't you, Susan? - Sure.
- Mellie, don't badger her.
- I'm not.
I'm not.
- She's not.
Of course not.
- So, you've been working with Abby.
- Yes.
And what are we telling the press today? Uh, we're starting by thanking the president for nominating me and then greeting the reporters.
And then we are I am pivoting to my relatability to the American people and my academic qualifications, followed by a real-world anecdote about my daughter, Casey.
I think that's all I have.
I think that's all you need.
I could go on and on, but I'll simply end with this she is just what this country needs.
And so without further ado, I'd like to introduce you to the next vice president of the United States Senator Susan Ross.
Go ahead.
Thank you, Mr.
President, for that wonderful introduction.
Now, as President Grant said, I don't have a long history in government, but what I do have is an abiding passion to solve problems and a fresh outlook on what Americans want from their government today.
As the only single mother in congress, I have a unique perspective on what it's really like out there for millions of hard-working families.
And as a tenured academic, I have the tools to analyze those challenges - Nice work, Red - And put real solutions in place.
We might actually get through this.
As my daughter, Casey, once told me A little odd, isn't it, that I'm gonna tell you a cute, little story about my daughter when really I-I mean she's a great kid, my Casey.
But we are talking about the entire government of the United States of America, and this is Real.
And I'm s-standing here talking to you.
And I just Uh, well, uh, anyhoo.
So, that happened.
- What? - I know you're still getting back on your feet My feet? Cyrus, I'm not I was kidnapped and held hostage by a team of mercenaries.
And now you're back.
You did that whole thing with the dad and the shotgun.
I'm not coming back.
There is no back.
I'm not The dad was different.
I'm not back.
This is different, too.
It's for America Her rent was due a week ago.
And she can't pay it because she is missing.
Those are the rules.
She doesn't pay, she's out.
- Rules don't apply when someone is missing.
- I have to go.
You just want to take her apartment, give it to some kid for twice what she's paying.
Lady, I'm just doing my job.
City says I can serve the papers and change the locks.
- So you need to move.
- That's not true.
The law says the notice to quit gives the renter five business days to pay up.
Which means that apartment belongs to Lois for five more days, which means you can't change the locks for five more days.
See? So, you just go away for five more days.
Are you the nice lady that looks in from time to time on Lois? Olivia? - We're gonna be okay now.
- Don't worry.
And I'm beginning to get worried that something's happened to her.
Lois, she really likes you.
Are you all right, honey? I've been sick.
Just got over the flu, but I'm fine, really.
On the mend.
I wouldn't bother you.
But Lois always said, "if ever you're in trouble, you go talk to the black lady across the hall.
" It's Lois who's in trouble, I think.
You and Lois are good friends? Lo calls me every morning to tell me what she had for breakfast.
We meet for lunch, we power-walk in the park, we take turns cooking dinner.
We go way back.
I know Lois like I know me, and I haven't heard a word from her in three weeks.
I went to the police, and they said, "maybe she went on vacation.
" Lo and I go on vacation in August.
I told the police that.
Then they said maybe she needed some time alone.
Look.
This is her wallet.
It was right there on the kitchen counter.
Now, what kind of time alone could she afford without her wallet? Something happened.
Something's not right.
- Say something.
-No.
Liv, you're Here.
That's really good.
Good for you.
Right, Huck? It's good, yeah.
It's good to leave the house, have a routine.
- Lois Moore.
- Routine's great, yeah.
- You okay? - Lois Moore.
- Who's - The neighbor lady.
They shot her, the kidnappers, when they were done using her apartment.
Her friend Rose is looking for her.
The "where's the black lady?" Lady? Lois is dead.
They dumped her somewhere.
Uh, you want us to find the body.
The kidnappers took us out of the building in an ambulance.
An ambulance? How did they they shot Lois, duct taped me, put me in a body bag, and then put Lois' dead body in the bag on top of me to act as a decoy.
They rolled that body bag right through the front lobby of my apartment building, and no one even blinked.
Anyway, the ambulance was the last place I saw Lois.
If I were you, I'd start there.
Huck.
She came in.
That's something.
Well, thank you for alerting me to this situation.
Can't wait to check it out tonight.
You owe me 20 bucks, don't you? He thinks the moon is a hologram being projected by the FBI to hypnotize Americans into submission.
Told you, certifiable.
I am killing it today.
This is my least favorite hour of the month.
You say that every month.
Then why do I keep doing it? Opening the floodgates, giving voice nay, valuable office hours to the crackpots and the crazies? You're the dutiful servant of the American people, and the American people need their pulse taken.
The American people believe the air force is chemically neutering us when it snows, Holly.
- This next lady doesn't.
- No? What's her jam? Tiny aliens running the department of the treasury? She says her husband worked for a super-secret spy agency operating outside the command of the United States government.
- That old song? - Called B613.
Want to bet another $20 she chews her hair? What did you say? Uh, B613.
Why? What's wrong? Uh, nothing.
Send her in.
- How do you know about this, uh, what did you call it? - B613.
B613.
Right.
My husband, he told me everything.
And you husband is? Diego Muñoz.
You know, I don't want to be, uh, disrespectful.
But is it possible maybe that your husband is suffering from some sort of mental illness? Because to be perfectly honest, Mrs.
Muñoz, this sounds Crazy, right? What are these? Files from B613.
B613 files.
Yes.
Yes.
Okay.
It's all in there, things you won't believe assassinations, extortion, coups.
They're even color-coded.
That must have taken someone a lot of work.
"The laugh heard 'round the world" is what they're calling it.
And, oh, what a laugh it is.
Susan Ross' senate confirmation hearings are fast approaching.
We felt we could use some help.
No experience is one thing.
We've had that before.
But this? What you need is a new nominee.
That's a nonstarter.
She's a blathering troll, Cyrus.
- Nonstarter.
- Cackling like an imbecile.
That's the only way describe it.
My answer is "no.
" Abby.
We will give you a very big pile of money.
Why didn't you say so? It was one laugh.
Howard Dean had just one scream.
Dukakis only rode in one tank.
Mark Sanford only hiked one trail.
Okay.
I get it.
How do we fix it? My job is simple to take away the questions, the obstacles in your path to greatness.
From here on out, there is no truth, there is no belief.
There are only polls and votes.
What Leo's trying to say is, we have to get the American people to trust you again.
We manage that, we have a shot at getting you past the scrutiny of the Senate Rules Committee.
We manage that, and we work on convincing both houses of congress to vote you in as vice president.
Three hurdles.
That sounds doable.
If you do everything I say and keep a straight face, it just might be.
Got it.
No more laughing.
How do we begin? With more laughing.
Are you aware that your laugh is now the number-one selling ringtone on iTunes? Oh, my gosh.
No.
- It is? - Yes, it is.
That's crazy! - You didn't know this? - I didn't.
Well, that's not the laugh that's number one.
This is the laugh that's number one.
And I just Do it once for us like that.
- No.
- Please? I can't I don't think I can re-create it.
Don't make me beg, here.
You can re-create it.
Come on, now.
America wants to hear that laugh.
I can't.
- It's your thing now.
- Mnh-mnh.
And now we get serious a full half-hour, no-holds-barred, gloves-off interview with none other than Alicia Thomas.
- She's tough.
- Not that tough.
She is brutal, and she loves to play the "gotcha" game.
So we are going to drill and drill and drill some more till you speak the language of your people.
My people? The core.
They have tea parties in the core, Susan.
Freaky, intolerant tea parties.
Your voice needs to speak the core's language.
You need to believe what the core believes.
You need to be one with the core conservative base.
- Okay.
- Okay.
Let's start with gay marriage.
That's easy.
I mean, who doesn't love a gay wedding? You, Susan.
You.
I believe it's up to the states - to individually decide for themselves.
- Hmm.
The federal government should stay out of it.
Well, let's talk about something a little lighter.
What's the last book you read? "Foucault's pendulum.
" What? No! How about something a little more relatable? Okay, but you said the last book.
For the love of stop telling the truth! Mostly the Bible.
I do love the Bible.
Flash polls have us trending in the right direction.
So it's working? He's good at his job.
I didn't say he wasn't.
You date him? Really, Red? That turns you on? - In our dealings with President Rou-ha-nee - Rouhani.
That's what I said Rou-ha-nee.
It sounds like you're saying Rou-ha-nee.
- Right.
- Rou-ha-nee.
- When it's Rouhani.
- Rou-ha-nee.
- No.
- Better.
- Rou-ha-nee? - Rouhani! Can we just I need a break.
I think that's a good idea.
The committee's not gonna give you a break.
I need to use the lady's room.
Not gonna give you a pee break, either.
Let's get through the Middle East, - then we can all go tinkle.
- Leo, outside.
You are frazzling her.
She is fully frazzled.
Better now than in front of the committee.
We are not going to lose this.
Is this about you or about her? Oh, no.
Please don't break out the freshman psychology.
You lost an election with Sally.
That had to hurt.
I'm doing the job you hired me for.
Can we get back to work? Because she needs to understand international oil markets before she has to pee again.
Do you promise to take it easy? Do you promise not to micromanage me? This is fun.
I know.
All right, break time's over.
What is the difference in our ratio of oil production versus consumption? It was like a movie.
I'm sitting there, and some nice woman comes in and says the single most terrifying sentence I have ever heard "I have B613 files.
" "I have B613 files.
" "I see dead people.
" "We're gonna need a bigger boat.
" I floated up out of my body like I had an out-of-body experience.
Or maybe I just died for a minute.
She's handing me B613 files, my B613 files with my little color-coded tabs.
Where the hell did she get them? - Rowan? Charlie? - No.
Get this.
She said her husband gave her the files.
Well, do we believe her? Is she playing you? She gave me a name, some guy.
Wait.
Diego Muñoz.
- Who the hell is Diego Muñoz? - You don't know? No, but I'll tell you who he's gonna be he's gonna be a dead man.
Please, don't speak about murder in front of the Attorney General of the United States.
These files could bury all of us.
I'm out this door if you talk about murder.
Fine.
Fine.
Let's just find the guy that I'm not going to kill.
What do we know about him? He's married.
What else? W-what does this Diego Muñoz do that he has access to B613 files? He could be in government, high-level security clearance.
He could be a lawyer like his wife.
He's me.
I'm Diego Muñoz.
Was.
Y-your real name is Diego Muñoz.
Why did you give her those files? I had my reasons.
This is just this is worse.
She's on the inside.
She's connected to us.
If she keeps at this, somebody, a journalist, someone from justice is gonna pick it up and start digging around.
I'll take care of it.
You? You got us into this! I'm not saying that critically.
It's just, you know, factually true.
You're taking it critically, aren't you? I'll take care of it.
- Hi.
- They were just leaving.
I found the ambulance, tracked it to an impound lot outside of Wilmington.
Maybe Lois' body is still there.
Come on.
Let's go.
You're not gonna ask me what that was about? You'll tell me when you're ready.
Okay.
Scenario Putin's in trouble, the Russian economy's tanking.
The little bald devil realizes he needs another war and, quick, he invades Belarus.
What do you do? I support whatever the president does.
In this scenario, the president is dead.
Dead? Half the Senate Committee wants to nail you to the wall.
They are not gonna ask you questions about being the vice president, Susan, because any idiot can answer those.
They want to know what you're going to do if you are the president.
- Well, if Belarus were in NATO - It's not.
- I-I know that.
- Then why you bringing that up? I'm just trying to think through your question.
Okay, don't think.
Thinking's for losers.
Come on.
Uh, Belarus is a sovereign country, so first, I'd get the U.
N.
on board.
The U.
N.
Wrong! Half the senators hate the U.
N.
Try again.
Try again, try again, try again! Can we please do this tomorrow, please? It has been a long day, Leo.
The senator's exhausted.
Yeah? Being president's an exhausting job.
Now, Putin is sitting on a tank in Minsk's town square getting a back rub.
What you gonna do, Susan? I'll give you a hint it involves the mightiest military in the world.
Okay, uh, let's see.
According to article 1, section 8 of the constitution, the power to declare war is really in the hands of Congress, so Now half the senators the ones who don't hate you for being a U.
N.
-Loving commie are actually asleep in the senate chambers.
I what do you want me to say? How should I know?! You're the one who's president! Oh, no, no.
No.
Putin's done with the back rub, Susan.
Now he's a getting a tattoo that says "kiss my ass, America.
" What do you do, Susan? You're the president.
- What do you do? - I don't Leo, let's start again in the morning.
What do you do, Susan? What are you gonna do? What are you gonna do? What are you gonna do? At are you gonna do? - What are you gonna do? - I quit! - What?! - That's what I do.
I quit.
- You can't quit.
- Save it.
This isn't about good governance or the will of the people or solving problems that need to be solved.
This is just Theater! It's play acting! Tell the president I'm very sorry, but he needs to find someone else for the job.
What if there was no body to find? You and I both know the best way to handle dead Lois is disappear her, and that's probably what the kidnappers did.
That's what we'd do.
Burn her.
Dissolve her.
Send her to the bottom of a lake.
- In pieces.
- Right? You want to get some dinner, check the morgues together? Uh, no.
I can't.
Can you do it without me? I have someplace to be.
Okay.
I just have something I need to do.
I said, "okay.
" No problem.
You don't just tell anyone about B613.
It doesn't work that way.
I didn't tell just anyone.
I told the Attorney General of the United States.
How did you even find out? It's B613, Kim.
That's the point.
They have eyes and ears everywhere.
But it was good.
It is going to be okay.
David Rosen is on our side, Diego.
He was just as concerned as me.
You need to drop this.
You need to drop this right now.
It isn't safe.
You are not safe.
Think about Javi.
You don't think that the Attorney General will do everything in his power to protect the family of the man who testifies against B613, who who tells the world about everything that they did? You told him I'd testify? Not yet.
But you should in return for full immunity.
I am sorry if I overstepped, but I am on your side.
I believe you now.
Isn't that what you wanted all those times that you kept coming to the house? This group, this B613, think about what they did to you, what they did to us, what they have done to God knows how many other families.
I can't do it.
It's too dangerous.
Listen to me, Diego.
I am going forward with this whether you're with me or not.
Kim's not budging.
She's going forward whether I'm involved or not.
And you explained to her how completely insane that is.
She thinks that the government will protect her.
- No, they won't.
They can't.
- We are so royally Huck, you have to testify.
What? You have to testify.
Say the government never did anything to you, that you're a soldier with PTSD who went AWOL, that you told your wife some crazy story to try to get your kid back.
She'll know that I'm lying.
She'll never speak to me again.
At least you'll both be alive.
Are you kidding me? We have to do this now? Yes, we have to do this now.
Now.
Of course.
I tried to do this before, you may recall, and you refused to talk to me.
So, of course now, even though we could have done this at any point in the entire evening.
No, it has to be now because I want to sleep now.
You were out of line with Susan Ross.
No.
No, Susan Ross needs to toughen up, Abby.
I'm doing her a favor.
I'm doing you a favor.
I'm doing the United States a favor.
Oh, so you were helping America when you browbeat her out of the room? If she can't handle me asking her fake questions, how's she gonna handle the actual job? You were a bully.
A bully? You know who's a bully? Joseph Stalin, Mao, Saddam Hussein.
Those are the bullies American presidents have to deal with.
Harry Truman had to decide whether to drop an atomic bomb.
Kennedy spent 13 days in October deciding whether to go to nuclear war.
That's the gig she's applying for! Maybe she's not the right person for the job.
Or maybe you're not.
You're fired.
Leo.
- Mnh-mnh.
- Oh, come on.
Mnh-mnh.
I would have won this.
Susan Ross.
I would have gotten her over the finish line.
And the fact that you can't trust that - She got that new hip last year.
- I'm sorry? Lois she got that new hip last year.
Right.
Okay, listen.
We haven't found any leads yet, but my team is working as hard as they can.
No, I'm saying this might help.
I was there for the surgery.
And when they showed us the new titanium joint, it had a serial number on it.
Couldn't they use that to track her down somehow? I've got the paperwork right here.
- And another thing I was thinking.
- Rose.
Lois likes to go to the movies.
She went to the movie over on Brighton every Wednesday for half-price matinee.
Try asking there.
And on Saturdays when I go to book club, she watches the rowers on the Potomac.
Rose.
I know what we're dealing with here, Miss Pope.
I know she didn't just get lost.
I know she's gone.
I can feel it.
But I still need to know what happened.
You have a key to her apartment.
You're her power of attorney.
The two of you had a routine, an entire life together.
But you were just friends.
Well, maybe a bit more than that.
But you didn't live together.
We met at 16.
When her parents realized how we felt about each other, they picked up and moved her out of state.
I couldn't blame them.
That was 60 years ago.
It was hard enough being black, let alone black and gay.
I can only imagine.
But I never stopped loving her, even when she got married and had a whole nother life without me.
When John died, she wrote me a letter.
I was on a plane an hour later.
But no.
No, I never moved in.
She kept that damn place way too hot.
I'm going to do my very best to bring her back to you.
But, Rose, if somehow I can't, I don't want you to be waiting forever.
I waited over 40 years for my Lois, Miss Pope.
Believe me I can wait a bit longer.
I'm eating a salad.
I brought you a salad.
But it has bacon on it, so you can't be mad.
What are you doing here? It's the middle of the day.
Susan Ross quit.
I am not working for the White House.
Susan Ross quit, and I fired Leo, which I think means I also broke up with him.
The senate committee hearing's in three hours, and if we don't bring Susan Ross back on board I am not working for the White House.
If we don't get Susan Ross back on board, if she doesn't show up today for the Senate Committee meeting, - her career is over, Liv.
- Abby.
Do you know what a waste that would be? Susan's smart and good.
Actually good white-hat good.
She's smart and she's good and she's Weird, but it's kind of a good weird.
We just have to show the committee that, and to do that, we need you.
You won't even have to set foot in the White House.
I promise.
And it's not for him.
You're not doing this for him.
You're doing it for me and for Susan Ross and for you.
Just because I don't work at O.
P.
A.
Doesn't mean we don't talk.
Huck says you carry a gun around inside your apartment.
Jake and Quinn have barely seen you.
You don't return my phone calls.
Something terrible happened to you.
The bad guys have been winning like crazy.
You could use something good right now.
Yeah.
I don't want to end up a soulless monster like that Leo Bergen.
You can't change my mind.
You want to bow out, bow out.
But do it because you truly believe you're not the right person for this job, not because you're afraid of failing at it.
- Well, who says I'm - It's okay to be afraid.
Sometimes, fear keeps us safe.
Sometimes, it holds us back.
The president asked you to serve, and you said yes.
So before you turn your back on a job that only 47 people have had in the history of this nation, I need to hear why you said yes in the first place.
I have a 10-year-old daughter.
Her name is Casey.
I want her and every other child in this country to grow up in a nation that will allow them to fulfill their dreams just like I'm doing right now.
Well, that's very inspiring, senator Ross.
But the truth is, if confirmed, you will be one horrible tragedy away from the presidency.
With your lack of experience, how do I know that you're prepared to protect us against Russia or the North Koreans? Simple.
You don't.
You can do this job and keep your integrity.
Just be honest.
Be yourself.
Because bottom line here this country, it needs you.
You don't know.
That's the truth.
It's not like selecting a combat strategy or deciding whether or not to launch a nuclear weapon is something anyone can practice.
The world is changing every day.
Like anyone else sitting behind that desk in the oval office, I'd have to take all of the information from the brilliant people around me, process it, and make a smart, thoughtful decision.
And that's what I've been doing my entire life making smart decisions.
That's the skill that's brought me here before you today to this very moment.
So if being smart and informed and thoughtful is the job requirement here, all I can say is, I haven't failed yet.
Yes, Senator Ross was remarkably well-spoken today, but sources tell me Susan Ross will not have enough votes to become our next vice president.
I've spoken directly with a number of senators today.
And from what I'm hearing, they're just not gonna confirm her.
Would you say - that many on the Hill - You watching BNC? Susan killed at that hearing today.
We still don't have the votes? What the hell happened? Because, I'll be honest, I wasn't exactly on board when the announcement was first made.
I don't think the senate has a problem with Susan.
Then who do they have a problem but I will say she was quite impressive Oh.
During the senate rules committee hearing, which is why they voted her through.
But the senate is a much bigger obstacle.
- The democrats are - Please? So the senate hates me? Liv believes that's why they're not going to confirm Susan.
It doesn't have anything to do with Susan.
It's you, and it makes sense.
So, I need to go to Capitol Hill and twist some arms.
Sir, that's not the way we want to go into this.
Olivia Olivia thinks that you need to go over to the Capitol and ask for their forgiveness, beg for it if you have to.
Is that what Olivia thinks? Does Olivia know that the President of the United States does not beg? Sir sir, you burned them.
Congress put their trust in you and your decision making, and then you burned them on west Angola.
Oh, come on! For God's sake! That's why they're upset?! I can't help it if a few democrats got cold feet because we went to war.
It wasn't the war.
It was the way you went about it.
One minute, you say we're never going into west Angola.
Then three days later, U.
S.
soldiers are dying on their beaches.
A week after that, you change your mind again.
All of a sudden, you're bringing the troops home.
Never mind the democrats.
You made a mockery of democracy.
You know why I did it.
Go to the Hill and beg them to forgive you.
Otherwise, you're going to lose the democrats and Susan Ross.
What? We found Lois.
We tracked the serial number on her fake hip.
They dumped her body at Patapsco State Park in Maryland.
We're heading to the morgue now to claim her body.
I'll call Rose.
I also like the crusader because he has this really cool shield.
Plus he can go way up in the sky and then boom! Mm.
What happens after the boom? All his enemies are dead.
Oh, I see.
Hey, mom, can I still go to Jay's house tonight? Sure, but don't stay too late.
You still have homework.
I know.
Bye, mom.
Bye, dad.
Here.
This was nice.
Yeah, it was.
I am so proud of you for agreeing to testify.
It's brave.
You are very brave.
I'm just doing what's right.
And maybe after the deposition, you could come by again.
Javi makes spaghetti on Tuesdays.
He uses different sauces.
He's a pretty good cook.
I'd like that.
I'd like that a lot.
Do you still see Charlie? Sometimes.
We're not, like, a thing or anything.
Just if one of us is out late, had a lot to drink.
Tell him to destroy the B613 files, whatever he has left.
Okay.
No.
Stop.
Look.
I have been patient.
I haven't asked questions even though you've been extra weird and super-huckie.
Look, you're clearly up to something.
But did I tail you or hack you? No.
I waited.
I had this theory you would come to me when you were ready, but screw the theory.
What is going on? Kim gave my B613 files to David Rosen, and she wants him to press charges.
You can't let that happen.
I won't.
Huck, seriously, that would blow back on Liv.
- You can't! - Quinn, it's done.
Okay, don't worry.
I had a choice.
I made it.
I chose Liv.
Let's get started.
Can you state your name for the record? Diego Muñoz.
Mr.
Muñoz, can you tell me your first assignment for the organization known as B613? I, um, don't remember.
You don't remember your first assignment? No.
Okay, how about your second assignment? Let's start there.
Tell me about that, Mr.
Muñoz.
I, uh, can't Recall.
- You can't recall? - You can talk to him, Huck.
How about any assignment, Mr.
Muñoz? Why don't you tell me about any of your assignments for B613? Maybe you could move to a different topic.
A different topic? Okay.
Where was B613 located, Mr.
Muñoz? I don't remember.
You don't know the location of B613? - No.
- Huck.
Who was in charge of B613? - I don't know.
- You don't know?! I don't think this is gonna work, Mr.
Muñoz.
Huck, you need to answer the questions.
Those files are real.
- Are they real? - I don't know.
- Tell him about the hole, Huck.
- The hole? They punished B613 agents by putting them in a hole.
Tell me about the hole, Mr.
Muñoz.
Was there a hole, Mr.
Muñoz? Tell him about the hole! I am the Attorney General, Mrs.
Muñoz, and you're taking me for a fool.
I could have you disbarred.
Yes.
- There was a hole? - Yes.
And you were put in this hole? Yes.
Can you describe this hole? No.
No.
I didn't think so.
I'm done.
It was too dark to see.
It was black.
It was always black in the hole.
I know it was small walls, 6'" north and south.
I measured it every day.
It's important to have a routine in the hole.
If you don't have a routine, you go crazy.
I measured the walls every day.
I cleaned, I exercised, I took walks, a different country every day.
You have to use your imagination.
It's all you have.
I walked through 195 countries in the hole.
I liked I liked being in the mountains.
I liked the snow.
It's important to have a routine.
I ate lunch at the same time every day, even when I didn't have any food, even though I had no idea what time it was.
I built things in the afternoon a bookshelf, a desk.
I watched the sunset.
That was important.
I listened to the birds.
I cleaned up files on my computer after dinner, then I slept.
I tried not to dream.
And every morning after I woke up, I wrote a letter to my wife and son.
And I folded the letter up, and I put it on the bookshelf.
And then I measured the walls.
It was a new day.
It was dark, always dark.
Just pitch black.
It was empty.
It was small.
You couldn't move.
You couldn't see.
But I had my routine.
This was my routine.
This is how I would describe the hole.
Okay.
- Show some humility, but do so with sincerity.
- Cyrus.
You regret.
You're not sorry.
You're taking responsibility.
You're not apologizing.
Cyrus.
Mr.
President.
I've got this.
Of course you do, Sir.
Congress confirming this morning the nomination of Susan Margaret Ross of Virginia Ross' confirmation was surely aided by president's Grant's visit to the Democratic caucus.
I think Senator Ross is exceptionally qualified to be our next vice president.
That's why I voted for her.
The president directly urging democrats to support his nominee.
As the next vice president of the United States.
She'll serve this country well.
Now, it's important to myself and certainly my fellow members of Congress that we support this president in the direction Rachel, push my 8:00 back a half-hour.
This is too good to miss.
In that right direction.
Hey.
Hey.
If you're looking for your mouth guard case, it's, um I put it in the dishwasher.
It was gross, so Abby.
I fired you.
I was right to fire you, and if you can't handle that, if you can't handle me doing my job, me having some power if dating a woman who's one of the big dogs is too hard for you, then I'm fine being dumped.
You can get your petty ass out of my Do it again.
What? Fire me.
Only this time, put on those high-heeled boots I saw in the back of your closet.
you're disgusting.
I know.
"That I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of this office of which I am about to enter.
" "So help me, God.
" "So help me, God.
" You did it, mom! Congratulations, Susan.
Ohh! You are gonna be a great vice president.
Where'd they find her? Miss Pope, what happened to my Lois? They found her on a bench in Georgetown.
Georgetown? Waterfront park the one next to the river.
She had her head tilted up to the sun, her eyes were closed.
The medical examiner said it was an aneurysm.
One of the best ways to go.
It happened so fast.
There's not a moment of pain.
Not one moment? Not even one.
It's like she just fell asleep on a warm, beautiful day with the sun on her face, listening to the sound of the river.
It's just too soon.
it's still too soon.
You left way too soon.
Lo, why did you have to go and do that? Now I'm alone.
I'm all alone, Lo.
All alone.
Things ain't never gonna be the same without you.
things just never gonna be the same.
They're never gonna be the same, Lo.
Never gonna be the same.
Never gonna be the same.
He said all of this? Huck actually said all of this? Yeah.
You need to shut this down, Rosen now.
Of course I need to shut it down.
I go forward, and we probably all go down.
I know that.
But here's the thing, Jake.
I'm not gonna shut it down.
What? I'll do what I can to protect us and Olivia, but I'm going forward.
You gave me those files.
You said, "go get the bad guys.
" I'm going to get the bad guys.
Rosen, we are the bad guys.
Not anymore.
