I don't know.
I feel like...
I feel like these shoes are at a different party.
You know? One where fun goes to die.
So less corporate, more red carpet?
I think so. Great.
I really appreciate you jumping in.
Ali usually helps me with big events,
but she's doing an internship abroad and...
No problem. Okay.
These should put the fun in fundraiser.
Oh, yeah. See?
This is why women have a thing about shoes.
Well, that's news to me.
Oh, hey, handsome.
I love you in that old thing.
- It never gets old. - That's why it's a classic.
It certainly is.
Okay, I got to go over and work on my remarks.
No, d-don't touch.
好吧 见到你很高兴 罗克珊
All right. Good seeing you, Roxanne.
Well, I think we got a winner. What do you think?
There's just one other wardrobe issue
we should discuss moving forward.
It's about your husband.
So you'll at least want to get a drive-by with Senator Wagner.
He has a sweet tooth, so target the dessert table.
And, uh, Senator Langston might be a little harder to pin down.
Oh, Sydney and Louise Winters's winery
had a great harvest coming off an award-winning year,
so you can lean on them
- to up their grant. - Just for one night,
can we not think about fundraising or votes?
Come on. This event actually has the potential to be fun.
You might be in the wrong profession, ma'am.
I said "One night," Blake. I'm not having a vocational crisis.
- Good to know. - But this is Henry's night to shine,
so I am perfectly justified staying out of the spotlight.
Oh, it's the McCords, in glamorous formal wear.
- I feel itchy. - Oh, you feel itchy?
Well, y-you look really g... that looks great.
You have on writer's face.
什么... 不 我之前是摆的作家的面孔
What... No, I had writer's face before.
This is public remarks face.
Oh. Well, okay.
- Let's do this. - Okay.
Ladies and gentlemen, President Elizabeth McCord
and First Gentleman Dr. Henry McCord.
Madam Secretary, it's a pleasure to see you.
And you, too, Madam President.
Is Minister Chen playing nice on the Taiwanese negotiations?
Oh, I've got his number. I think he misses you.
-你好啊 -不出所料 啰里啰嗦和
- Hi, you. - Senators Windbag
and Expediency are here as expected.
Good to see you.
Good evening, Mike.
Not if we can't get your wildly unrealistic,
giving-me-palpitations legislative meatball
- over the finish line. - Thank you.
你还得去拉票 夫人 不对 女士
You have votes to whip, lady. I mean, Madam.
- President. - I was sort of hoping
to take the night off.
So, Wagner likes to feel important.
So just act like you're there seeking his brilliant counsel
and actually give a crap
about his spectacular blowhardery.
That and he likes to brag about bringing home the bacon
to his constituents.
Langston is an idealist but responds to power,
so just pummel her.
Isn't it a bit unseemly for the president to pummel?
Failure is unseemlier, and your hundredth day in office looms.
Now, see, that's something that we can all reach consensus on.
We ought to chocolate-cover every bill
that comes to the floor, Madam President.
Thanks for coming out tonight, Senator Wagner.
Any chance to hear that scholarly husband of yours talk.
Well, that's nice to hear.
Be even nicer to hear
if I had your support for the ESI bill.
I support the infrastructure piece,
but some of my colleagues and I have concerns
about the education handouts.
Well, we can't have next-gen infrastructure
without innovations in science, and we can't lead in science
without investing in education...
The hip bone's connected to the thigh bone.
I've heard your pitch, ma'am, but the people of Alabama
don't care about the body politic.
They care about runaway spending.
Do you think
that those concerns might be allayed if we make sure
contracts for rebuilding Alabama's schools
only go to local construction companies?
That might be just the chocolate fix they need, Madam President.
Before you all knew him
as the First Gentleman of the United States,
he was known in many circles for other things.
战斗机飞行员 宗教学者 著名作家
Fighter pilot, religious scholar, acclaimed author,
White House advisor.
Clearly, he did the best he could
with the limited talents he had.
Please welcome Dr. Henry McCord.
Thank you, Patricia. Thank you very much.
Well, it's true, I've had a blessed and weird life
and I've pursued some challenging paths.
But what you probably don't know is that
I could never have been any of those things without poetry.
I mean, here I was, this goofy, working-class kid
from Pittsburgh without a single interesting thought in my mind.
And then, in high school, I had this great teacher,
who made me read Gerard Manley Hopkins
and Emily Dickinson
and Langston Hughes and Blaise Pascal.
他们是神学家 哲学家 创新家
These were theologians, philosophers, innovators
And suddenly, my mind caught fire.
I... the way they used words just lit up my imagination
and expanded my concept of the divine.
They ignited all my passions and put them in one place.
