Aerial shots of L.A. mean we're going to be joining...Kevin? No, Kitty. She and McCallister are pedeconferencing about his schedule. He's bitching that he has to meet with a columnist who once wrote about him that he was "not as smart as Hillary Clinton, but prettier." ...Yeah, and? I don't think anyone's in a position to object to that, sir. He then pulls Kitty into his office and tells her she really needs to stop calling him "Senator" all the time, but Kitty says that now that their relationship has gone public, she has to "reestablish [her] credibility with everyone on staff." Calista Flockhart might want to reestablish her credibility with the makeup and lighting people because she's looking all sorts of washed out in this scene. She complains about double standards, and how she comes off like a "slattern" while he comes off like a Kennedy on horseback or whatever. He tries to make the argument that they're working in a political office, not a high school cafeteria, and that everybody's too busy "making a better America." Robert says that's the new slogan that's been testing well with Americans. Kitty thinks it's "sub-moronic" and that "America is sometimes wrong." Robert says he thinks the Democrats are going with that last one. Zing! Kitty says she has to leave now, lest the rest of the office think they're doing it. Rob assures her she's the only one who's thinking about sex right now, and when she opens the door to leave, he shouts, "Cute outfit!" at her. A passing staffer snickers, and Kitty sighs.
Ojai. Saul's just adjourning a board meeting that was clearly an acrimonious affair, considering how relieved Saul is to be done with it. Sarah offers her insincere apologies to Holly that the vineyard proposal was voted down, and Holly just as insincerely adopts a "win some, lose some" attitude about it, before pointedly congratulating Tommy for "voting with [his] gut." Holy crap, no wonder Saul wanted to wash his hands of this meeting; the passive aggression is stultifying. Holly takes off while Saul laments that this came to a vote at all: "We should have settled this quietly; the board doesn't need to see us divided, that's a first." Sarah snots that it was only Tommy who voted against the family, and Tommy says it's not like he cast his vote as an act of teen rebellion or anything. They squabble for a bit about whose intelligence and business acumen is being underestimated by whom, until Saul calls them both "kids" and begs them to give it a rest. He walks out, eyes heavenward, and mutters, "Peace in our time..." Heh.
