MacKenzie ushers Will into his office, gets all angry at him for dating a "student," and accuses him of using the cheerleader to get back at her. Yes, it's all about you, multiple Peabody winner. MacKenzie lets Will on a little secret: the cheerleader may want to sleep with Will because he's famous. Will seems perfectly okay with that. "I loathe you right now," MacKenzie says. Ugh. And just when she's nearly stormed out of Will's office, screaming and with her hands balled into fists like a tantruming child, Charlie pulls her back in to congratulate the pair on the show and encourage them to keep talking Tea Party. Will asks what "the 44th floor" has to say about the show's new direction. Charlie assures him that they're fine with it.
As Jane Fonda peers ominously over her Glasses of Power, Matt Long (whose name is finally revealed to be Brad) says things went from bad to worse when Will went after South Carolina senator Jim DeMint.
June 18: Will tries to nail a spokesman for DeMint on his comments about gay marriage. Shockingly, DeMint is against it, saying homosexuals spread disease through their sinful sexual activities. Maggie runs into the control room and tells Jim: "18,000." MacKenzie relays the number to Will through his earpiece. Will asks the spokesman if he thinks WWI US soldiers were "good, moral people." Of course they were, spokesman says. Will informs him that 18,000 of them had to be treated for STDs -- a day.
Post-show, MacKenzie and Maggie, a duet of disaster, walk into the bullpen and see another one of Will's dates waiting for him. It's not the cheerleader, so I guess that didn't work out. MacKenzie, of course, heads right for her as Will runs over to try to rescue his poor date from having an encounter with a crazy person. He's able to grab MacKenzie away, and she asks if the woman is a spinning instructor. Will says she's actually a brain surgeon. Ha ha! Suck it, MacKenzie! Pretty people can be smart, too.
