"She's like a sophomore poli-sci major at Sarah Lawrence," Don smirks. Jim says she totally is except for her prestigious awards and stab wounds in the line of duty, and the two guys are all set up to dislike each other for the rest of the season.
Back in Will's office, MacKenzie begs Will to spare the staff she brought over if not her. She says they've all spent money and time moving to New York for this. "THEY FUCKED UP, MACK! THEY TRUSTED YOU!" Will screams. This is audible in the bullpen. Jim facepalms, then looks up at the sound of a news alert on the computer. He tells Don, who glances at it and then dismisses it as being "yellow" and therefore not important. This doesn't sit well with Jim, who can't help but check it out for himself. It's an explosion off the coast of Louisiana, which Jim and Neal, who's been listening in on all of this, know must have come from an oilrig. "April 20, 2010" flashes on the screen, which we all know means the yellow alert was the first indication of what would become the BP oil spill. This is also when we realize that this show takes place two years IN THE PAST (mind-blowing!) and is apparently going to use real-life events for a fictional news show, which doesn't really make sense to me. At the very least, if you're going to insist on doing this, you'd better get them right. Since the explosion actually happened just before 11 pm, New York time, there's no way Will's staff could be discussing it in the afternoon, unless those news alerts are actually warnings from the future.
