All right.
I washed the dishes this time, but next time it's your turn.

- [SIGHS.]
Should we still have the barbecue? I don't know.
I was thinking about that.
I don't want to ask Nancy, with everything that's going on, you know? Well, we have it every year.
- Yeah.
- I mean, we can't talk to anybody but each other.
I know, but with Richard being fired? Ah, they'll have him back.
- Are you sure? - Yeah.
I'll drill down on it tomorrow.
You know, these people are being very unreasonable.
I know.
Makes me really miss the Obamas.
- Yeah.
Tell me about it.
Oh, man.
I really hope they let him come back.
Oh, they have to.
That entire department will fall apart without him.
I know.
All right, when I go back to work tomorrow, I'll start dropping some hints, too.
I love you, Sam.
I love you, honey.
No, listen.
I just love that you're such a good man.
- Baby.

I don't tell you this enough.
- Thank you, baby.
- You're welcome.
Don't get it.
Don't get it.
I don't want to.
I don't want to.
It seems like I'm gonna get some tonight.
Ha ha ha! Ah, I know, but you have to get it.
I know.
Oh, just one night, I'd like you alone to myself.
Yeah, I know.
What is it? Sir, it's Yuma.
The sparrow is not nesting, sir.
Where is she? We don't know, sir.
What the hell you mean, you don't know? She slipped us.
Get Kyle and Max.
I'm on my way.
Yes, sir.
Damn it.
What is it? - That girl.
- What did she do now? They can't find her.
She is trouble.
I know.
Just another reason for me to hate her, ruining our only time together.
I'll be back, okay? See you tomorrow.
Sir? Said I didn't want to be disturbed.
Uh, well, sir, I, um Yeah, no, go home.
Uh, yes, but, sir, um Are you really gonna try to have these people keep me out of here? Think I would do better with a guard dog.
You are a guard dog.
Ooh, I should bite the hell outta you.
Bite me.
Please bite me.
Go to bed.
I would, but we have a problem.
Yeah, I know.
You're still breathing.
That little bitch you call a daughter is missing.
What? She's gone.
That's not possible.
It's the White House.
She can't just leave.
Okay, fine.
I knew you wouldn't believe me.
Yeah, you know what? I don't believe you trying to get my attention.
Ask your man.
What man is that? Max? Hmm.
I'll call him.
He's not on-site, is he? I don't know.
Where is he, Hunter? I don't know.
No, you do.
Did he go to get that girl? Would you just go to bed? Don't you dare pretend to be working.
Can't you see these intel briefs? I see the porn reflecting in your glasses, asshole.
I swear, if you bring that girl into this place again, you will regret it.
So will you, darling, so will you.
I regret the day I met you every second.
- Max? - Yes, sir? Do you have her? - Yes, sir.
- Yeah, well, um, that dog is still on the hunt.
Yes, sir.
Hold her somewhere for a second, okay? Yes, sir.
- Max? - Yes, sir? Is my daughter here? Sir? - I knew she was lying.
- About? Victoria said that Gayle wasn't here.
As far as I know, sir.
I'll get right back to you.
All right.
Figure it out.
Call me back.
Max to Kyle.
Hunter to Kyle.
It's the asshole.
Come back.
POTUS is asking if the sparrow is out of the nest.
The sparrow's out.
What? You heard me correctly.
Well, what are we doing about it? I'm doing my job.
I need to brief POTUS.
- I will.
- I am his lead, Kyle.
And where are you? I'm on assignment.
Off-grounds? - Yes.
- Then you can't brief him.
- This isn't radio chatter.
- Kyle I will brief him when we have more information.
Until then, you may want to stay off the radio.
God, I can't stand that asshole.
What is it? Sir, apparently your daughter has left.
But how the hell is that possible? I don't know, sir.
I can return immediately and get into it.
No, no, just Stay with her.
Are you sure, sir? - Yeah, I'm sure.
- Yes, sir.
Damn it! How the hell did this happen? - Now look who cares.
- Oh, shut up! - No, you shut up! - What in the hell is going on? Ask your son.
He won't talk to me.
You knew about this? I helped her get away from here.
No she tased her like a wild animal.
She was behaving like one.
And what do you think you do every day? You keep talking, and you'll be next to get the taser.
Look, stop it! Both of you! [SIGHS.]
Where did she go? I'm not talking in front of her.
I Victoria, go.
- No! - [GROWLS.]
Victoria! Fine.
Where did she go? Dad, she's wicked.
I know, but she's your mother.
I don't care.
She's evil.
Putting that aside, where is Gayle? She left.
How did she leave? It was easy.
You gonna tell me? She dressed as a maid and she got in the trunk of Jean's car.
Who's Jean? She's a maid.
And where did she go? Dad You know where she went.
Yeah, to see that boy.
All right.
Thank you, son.
You know, dad, if I can pull one over on the secret service, they're not very good.
Yeah, you, uh You got that right.
Go to bed.
I knew it.
I just told you to go to bed.
You had better get that little bitch in line.
Or what? I will.
Is that what you were doing when you tased her? If this gets to the press What, you'll look like the evil mother that you are? You get that girl in line, and I mean it.
Why are we just sitting here? We've been delayed.
Let me go, please.
Come on.
Sorry, ma'am.
I can't do that.
You know what he's into? I don't care to know, ma'am.
You should.
You work for him.
Ma'am? He likes me up on all fours, and my legs up like this.
Come on.
You're a man.
I am.
Let me go, please.
I can't do that.
This is kidnapping.
- Ma'am, please.
- You think I'm sexy.
I see how you be lookin' at me.
I see.
Ma'am, how about we just sit in silence? I'm getting out of this car.
- Ma'am, please just relax.
- You think you can just do this? I'm not a slave.
I will go to the press.
Hey, that wouldn't be wise.
Watch me.
Don't do anything stupid, ma'am.
There have been others, and I assure you, they all regret it.
Is that a threat? [MAX SIGHS.]
That's truth, ma'am.
How does this happen? Well, sir - You in charge? - No, sir.
- Who, then? - Max, sir.
- Max? - Yes, Max.
We realized that your daughter left in one of the employees' cars.
We have an agent en route to talk to that employee now.
How the hell does this happen? What's going on? Permission to speak freely, sir? Go ahead.
Well, your lead, sir, Max I know that he is very trusted and has come with you from the governor's mansion, but I've worked here for two administrations.
Now, there are certain protocols that have to be adhered to that Max isn't aware of, and I'd like - Max is my guy.
- Yes, sir, I understand that, but I think that it may be wise to perhaps let Max continue to be your guy, but under our supervision.
What's your name? Kyle Flint, sir.
All right.
I'll talk to Max.
You, uh, go find my daughter.
I'm on it personally, sir.
She's got this guy that she likes.
His name is Leon Stevens.
Goes by the name of Picky.
Permission to pay him a visit, sir? Yeah.
Yes, sir, Mr.
Thank you, Kyle.
Good? Yes.
How is she? - The new maid? - Yeah.
You seem quiet.
I'm fine.
Come on.
Tell me.
Donald, how am I supposed to deal with this? What do you mean? I mean I shot a man.
- Mm-hmm.
- And you haven't said one word about him.
Am I just supposed to pretend like nothing happened? Yes.
But what if I can't do that? You can and you will.
What if I can't? You must.
What happened to him? That is a matter of Do not tell me that it's a matter of national security.
But, honey, it is.
So I guess I'll never know.

Plausible deniability, you know.

Didn't have sex with him, but I could have.
Then I started thinking about Richard and Barry and How much it would hurt 'em.
So I stopped it.

How is that even possible, huh? Uh, well, she dressed up as a maid and she jumped into the back of one of the employees' trunks.
No, no, no, no, no.
It is impossible for her to get past all of those security checkpoints.
Yeah, well, sir, it's possible with Max.
I tried to warn you that he is not capable of running the family's detail.
So you want to run it, huh? You know my reputation, sir.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Listen, where's the president? Uh, he's in the residence [SIGHS.]

Honey, it's Just go.
Don't scream.
Don't run.
Next on "The Oval" - What do you want? - You.
Can you believe those idiots lost my daughter? I find that very hard to believe.
Then maybe you shouldn't have hired Max.
That idiot.
So you're his trained monkey? - That's offensive, ma'am.
