It's the next day. Helen and Santos are touring a public school. It's all shiny happy people. The principal reels off info about the makeup of the student body, and we learn that only 8\% of the students receive free lunch. They walk outside, and Helen expresses surprise that there were no metal detectors. The principal tells her, "D.C. doesn't have any metal detectors in our elementary schools." Helen realizes she just embarrassed herself, but the principal is totally gracious about it. There are kids playing in the schoolyard, and one foxy-looking teacher way in the back. She's wearing a beret. I bet all the kids love her. (My favorite elementary school teacher wore gauchos, and once a week we would move all the desks aside and have a dance party. She was awesome, but it was her exotic clothes that really put her over the top). The principal leaves the First Couple, and, as they walk away, it's clear that they both think this is the perfect school for their kids.
Transition HQ. The rude receptionist is still just putting people on hold when Vinick enters. Ronna greets him, and tells him that she'll get Santos.
