Sam and Josh burst through a door as they pedeconference. Sam states, "The guy threatened to blow up a theatre in the name of God!" I don't know who they're talking about, but Josh tells him not to bring it up at the meeting. Sam says, "It might slip out." Josh: "Shove it back in." Someone should have given a certain real-life President such good advice about his, er...never mind.
As Sam and Josh enter the room, they exchange pleasant greetings with the Reverend Al Caldwell and some other guy. For a moment I think Caldwell is Richard Dysart, except a little older and more jowly, which he would probably be by now, except I can't remember whether Dysart's even still alive. Then I realize it's not him anyway. Josh and Sam say good morning to Mary, whom we remember from Josh's run-in last season with the Christian right. She doesn't stand, shake their hands, or greet them; she just launches in with, "Josh, the White House will face considerable embarrassment if the President continues to maintain his stranglehold on indifference when it comes to persecuted Christians around the world." Josh looks at Sam and says, "We're done with...'good morning.'" She says POTUS has to grant the asylum request. Josh says the President doesn't grant asylum requests, the INS judge does. Mary counters that the INS judge will do what the President urges him to do, and adds, "If the President doesn't urge the INS judge to grant asylum, he's going to wish he had." Josh says, "Mary, I swear to God, you're not going to get anywhere in this building by threatening me." Sam asks if it's known for a fact that they were persecuted in China.
