Dr. Dr. Sloan finds MacKenzie in the only bar in New York. She asks if she can have a few extra minutes in Tuesday's broadcast for some important economic news: the House of Representatives will be voting on whether or not to raise the debt ceiling. Dr. Dr. Sloan says the vote itself isn't as important as what it represents: the beginning of a whole lot of fighting in Washington that "could end in catastrophe." Or it could end in the stock market going way down, me selling my car because I was moving to New York City, and then me investing the car sale money into the stock market and making 17% in one year! Best catastrophe ever (for me)! I LOVE debt ceilings!
MacKenzie says she can't give Dr. Dr. Sloan the extra time because of Casey Anthony. So now it's Casey Anthony's fault that Americans don't know enough about the debt ceiling. Dr. Dr. Sloan doesn't understand how Casey Anthony can be more important than her precious debt ceiling. MacKenzie tries to explain that ratings are important and you can't tell anyone about the debt ceiling at any point if you don't have them and your show gets cancelled. You also won't get the all-important debate, which she points out that Jim and Neal are in the corner of the bar studying for on a Friday night like a bunch of news-loving losers.
Neal asks Jim Bachmann about the reforms he wants to make to Social Security and Medicaid. Jim says he will reduce benefits and repeal the Obamacare law. Neal points out that presidents can't repeal laws. Jim says Michele Bachmann seems to think they can. He goes to show Neal where he saw her say it on the Breitbart website, only to find it reporting that Anthony Weiner's Twitter account was hacked.
Dr. Dr. Sloan won't give up. She says if they lead with the debt ceiling story and then go to Casey Anthony that will really demonstrate to their viewers how important the debt ceiling story is. No, it won't, because they'll all be asleep. MacKenzie asks the bartender for another drink, and Dr. Dr. Sloan starts talking about how cute Brian is and how MacKenzie should totally hit that. MacKenzie says she's been there, done that. Yes, Brian was the ex-boyfriend with whom MacKenzie cheated on Will, although it takes super-genius Dr. Dr. Sloan way too long to do the math and figure that one out. MacKenzie says she'd been with Will for a year when Brian started to call her again. Dr. Dr. Sloan doesn't understand why Will would pick Brian to do this story. MacKenzie doesn't, either. She also doesn't want to talk about this anymore, so she tells Dr. Dr. Sloan she'll do her best to get the debt ceiling story in -- unless she's forced to shove more news garbage down her viewers' throats. "Anthony Weiner accidentally tweeted a picture of his groin to 40,000 followers," Jim announces.
