The guy doesn't get to say much more before Will shows a clip of Romney from a recent debate saying we shouldn't chose our leaders based on their religions, only to later say that he will fight to "preserve America's traditions." Will demands that we be able to ask the candidates questions about their weird religions. "Well, like what?" the guy asks. Will says we should make sure we all have "the definition of 'creator.'" The guy says both Romney and Santorum "plainly meant God." "That's not plain to everybody!" Will says.
Speaking of god, thank god that we don't have to watch this anymore because we cut to Nina (yay!) watching the show with Will in his living room and advising him on how he could come across more likeable. "A smile would've make it folksier," she suggests. Also, he probably shouldn't bring up religion. Will asks what else he's supposed to talk about with the president of the league of Catholic voters, as if the guy got a chance to actually talk at all. Nina suggests that he not have that guy on in the first place. "You want guests that don't make you look so combative," she says. So … not conservatives or anyone at all related to conservatives? Or people from OWS. Or that Anthony Weiner woman. Or anyone. Maybe he should just stop having guests on News Night for a while, hmm?
Will says he thinks he's plenty likeable. "I think you're loveable!" Nina says. "Thank you," Will says. I think she kind of just said she loved him and he said thank you. Oops. "Your numbers are problematic," she says.
Jim and Neal arrive at dinner. Jim tells Neal that he wants this double date to be over as quickly as possible so he can move on to the hotel sex part of his evening. Here comes Taylor to ruin everyone's good time! Except mine. I like her. I hope she ends up on Terry Smith's show. "God, it's you," Jim says instead of "hello." Taylor scolds him for spending way too much time on Romney's advisor's Etch-a-Sketch comment. Jim introduces her to Neal, and she says she hates him due to his ACN association.
And then she drops the bomb: she'll be joining them for dinner! "I know you had a special night planned, so of course, I'm coming along," she says. Jim says no way. Then Hallie shows up in the cocktail attire we've heard so much about. Jim is very happy to see her. He's less thrilled about Aubrey, who is already drunk. Or "wicked hammered," as she puts it. She seems fun. Hallie also informs Jim that Taylor is "sad tonight" so she invited her along to dinner because she is the worst girlfriend ever. She hasn't seen Jim in a month and she's inviting the entire world to their first dinner together? I mean, I love the comedic possibilities but it doesn't make much sense. Aubrey says she's ready to "boot and rally," and they're off to the best worst dinner ever.
