Read my nametag, buddy.
–And here we have the Oval Powder Room.

–Skip that, skip it, let’s get to the good stuff.

–This is important. The Oval Powder Room is a secret refuge in times of difficult Oval Office meetings. It comes complete with a Keurig Brewing system, Laz-Z-Boy Recliner…

–The codes. Where’s the codes?

–If I can turn your attention to the built-in hair dryer, this was put in for Kennedy and it has stood the test of time.

–Screw tests, I got stuff to do. I’m very busy.

–Please align with our time-honored system for transferring the mantle of power.

–I don’t need a mantle, I got my mandate.

–Forty-six to forty-eight, I mean, hardly a mandate.

–You libeling me?

–I’m saying, if you consider the popular vote…

–‘Cause I’ll sue you right now. Don’t think I won’t. I’m a firecracker.

–Very well…

–I’m president, right? I get that code. It comes included.

–You are correct.

–That’s better.

–You are in the right.

–We’re gonna get along fine, you do what I say.

–Okay then. Do you have a pen?

–I’ll remember it. I have an excellent memory. Very smart.

–Very well. It’s m-y password.

–My password? That’s it?

–All lower-case.

–My password, my password, that’s easy, I got that memorized already.

–You are a marvel.
