Episode Summary

EDIT
Miss Sugarbaker Goes to Washington (II)
AIRED:
After her botched appearance on Crossfire, Suzanne is ridiculed by the press, who say that it's hard to tell if the "flamboyant, zoftig Miss Sugarbaker" is "playing Miss Kitty or Miss Ellie from The Beverly Hillbillies." They also accuse Suzanne of selling her brother's spoon-rests in the White House for a profit, which they refer to as "Knick-KnackGate." Natty attacks Suzanne because she publicly "diminished all women as sexual commodities, slandered homosexuals, insulted blacks, and bragged about being rich. . ." Suzanne turns in her resignation, but her decision is altered after a heartfelt talk with her daughter and brother who also want to return home. So she goes and speaks on the House Floor, and points out that even though she's different, that's what being an American is all about, resulting in several references to Jimmy Stewart's movie "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington". After over-using her time, as she's drug from the podium, she looks out into the crowd and sees Jimmy Stewart blow a kiss to her, so she blows one back. In the end, Suzanne decides to prove everyone wrong and stay on. She even agrees to go jogging with the President--using her own special methods.moreless
