    6.5
    A very Washington-heavy episode of Veep, proving this show can still dedicate itself to comedy while not overshadowing what the premise of the program is supposed to be. The highlight had to be Jonah at the metal concert though. Funny scene.

    • Selena: I'll tell you something else too, this is deliberate, Amy. The President knows how uncomfortable I am made by fat people. You want to know the secret to keeping weight off, shut your fucking pie hole. How about that, it's not rocket science. I'm not a nutritionist am I? No, I'm not. But I do know one thing you gotta put the corndog down. You gotta get up off your dead one. You gotta get movin'.
      Amy: You need to get movin' might actually be a good slogan. Damn thing.
      Selena: Oh my God it's weakness, that's really all it is. Pure and simple. It's weakness it's about self control you don't masturbate in the subway do you, Amy?
      Amy: No.
      Selena: No you don't. Do you shit in the street Amy? No of course you don't because you've gotten a hold of yourself. And now I've gotta say what, I've gotta say 'I'm the Vice President of the United States, put the cupcake down', that's now my job.

    • Selena: We should send POTUS a postcard from Paris. What's French for shove it up your ass?

    • Selena: Dan, did your boyfriend know anything about this?
      Dan: I was trying to use Jonah for intelligence

      Selena: That's like trying to use a croissant as a fucking dildo.
      Dan: I thought...
      Selena: No, no let me be more clear. It doesn't do the job and it makes a fucking mess.

    • Mike: Did she fall for that?
      Dan: I doubt it, but it's the thought that counts, she appreciates the gesture of me trying to trick her into believing that.
