Will's in Toby's office, reading somewhat angrily from this speech he just got. "'America needs a new doctrine for a new century, based not just on our interests but on our values across the world.'" Toby: "Find those values for me, please." Will says he doesn't have to: "The President of the United States already has: 'We are for freedom of speech everywhere; freedom to worship everywhere; freedom to learn for every child...'" Toby wants to know how he plans to enforce a universal, global right to education. Elsie pipes up: "The same way the U.S. enforced anything it wanted in the middle part of the twentieth century: somebody called our father." Toby asks her what, exactly, she's doing here anyway. We'd all like to know. Elsie says that FLOTUS likes her jokes. She comes off pretty snot-nosed saying it, too. That's because she can't do this dialogue; she's simply not in the same league as the other actors on this show. Also: I'm really quite surprised to hear that FLOTUS is even remotely conscious of Elsie's existence, much less a member of her fan club.
