  • Episode Description
  • Rumors abound that a "ratings guy" is being brought in to raise the show from its third place status. To Dana's surprise, Isaac announces the rumors are true. Dana has an "epiphany" that she and Casey should date other people for six months. Dan is invited to a Hillary Clinton fundraiser, and in his efforts to impress the First Lady, confuses secular with non-secular in a conversation about schools. This causes him no end of distress, and he proceeds to obsess about it to Casey.moreless

    • Casey : I'm known in some parts for my first date. In certain parts I have a rep. There's such a thing as street cred, Dan. Dan : Listen to this. Casey : Tell them about my street cred. Dan : Haha, seriously. Casey : Tell them about my rep. Dan : You don't have a rep, you don't have street cred. Your last date was 14 years ago and you ended up with marriage and a divorce. Casey : In some parts. Dan : There are no parts.

    • Casey: What about Sally? Dana: That wasn't dating. Casey: Well, we slept together almost every night for three months. Dana: Thanks for reminding me. Casey: Dana...! Dana: That wasn't dating, that was two lonely and pathetic people slinking off after a crappy little 2am show getting drunk and using each other for sex! Casey: (stops dead in his tracks) That's not dating?

    • (after Jeremy has told Dana that 9 people have heard a rumor, and Isaac has just confirmed the rumor is true) Jeremy: Dana, this may not be the right time, but.. that's ten.
