Sean goes on an emotional journey to the White House. Which is a block away and means less than nothing. Of all the symbolic places in our nation's capital, I've never found the White House to be anything other than kind of creepy. But Sean needs everybody to feel his drama about how the White House is there just for him, and with that extra desperation you get in situations like these. "No, really, I'm having a significant moment! Believe in my significant moment!" They nod, and they try. Andrea tells him that the whole team is excited he gets to have this moment. Me too. I just wish he'd locate himself in it, instead of watching it happen to him, because he isn't going to remember it. Andrea interviews the salient point that they are all living the American dream, and to see Sean appreciate the American part of that was nice. That's true, I'll give him that. I just don't respond the same way if I'm having a significant moment, because if you talk, it ruins it, because it makes it not significant. And why do you need to convince people of the intensity of your significant moment anyway? It's not for them, it's for you, and besides, it's not like they're ever going to care as deeply as you do about it. I just think it cheapens it. Patriotism is a deep burning and if you talk about it, you sound like a fool. Sean stares and cries and gets significant moment all down his slacks. I told you I was in a bad mood. Tomorrow I'd probably write this same part all "And that's how I remembered what being an American really is like" or whatever.
