Kate and Will walk down a stairwell. Actually, I think it's the only stairwell we ever see in the White House. He asks if she's the "point man on the Saskatchewan incursion." Will, if you really are interested in Kate, I'm not sure how much it advances your cause to call her a man. Unless you know something about her that the rest of us don't. ["Yay, someone in pop culture said 'Saskatchewan'! I am bursting with provincial pride." -- Wing Chun] Kate asks Will if he really has the clearance to discuss something as delicate as a drunken standoff at the Canadian border, and he tells her that Bingo Bob wanted him to weigh in on the matter. Kate looks exasperated, saying, "Please, tell me this is a ruse concocted to steal moments in my promising company." Yeah, I think they totally did it. Kate asks if the Veep is a snow-gooser, and Will tells her that he actually hunts bear from his cabin near Chinook. (Which he completely mispronounces, by the way.) In fact, the Veep hunts with the Governor of Montana. Will tells Kate that he wants to make sure that "we" don't back down or look weak. Kate doesn't think there is a "we" in this: "It's fifteen drunks in camo vests." Will repeats that Bob advocates a hard line. Kate wonders if this means "a permanent lockout in the NHL, a maple syrup embargo, turn off Niagara Falls?" Oh, that NHL line has gotta hurt. At least, it's gotta hurt the ten of you who are NHL fans. Kate puts her hand on the scanner and enters the Sit Room.
