    7.5
    Not the funniest episode of Veep yet, but arguably the most creative and the most believable with the battle between Selina and the interviewer, and even Amy and the EP behind the camera. Well-done, interesting and a fun break from the usual formula of the show.

    • Cody Marshall: They're expecting a puff piece.
      Janet Ryland: Right.
      Cody Marshall: There's the bluff puff, which we are going to start out with. You're her friend. You went to high school together. You guys like each other. Then we switch right over to rough puff. Nobody does rough puff like you. (Janet growls like a lioness.)

    • Janet Ryland: Thank you so much for inviting us into your home today, Madam Vice President.
      Selina: It's certainly my pleasure.
      Janet Ryland: I thought it might be fun to talk about what's original and what's been augmented over the years.
      Selina: We're talking about the building, right?

    • Mike: Use the Force, ma'am.
      Selina: I don't know what that means.

    • Selina: I was supposed to stress my successes. Instead I'm sitting there, stuffing my face with chicken.
      Jonah: Great stuffing there, guys. Good stuff, thumbs up! It looks good on television!

    • Selina: Sometimes you have to act. Always you have to listen, because in politics a backbone and a heart are only as good as your ears. And my ears are my livelihood.
