Nasim gets a date through an agency, and Mavis can't believe he'd
waste his money on a dating service. Courtney buys Rita a power
suit to wear at that night's campaign meeting. Rita wonders if Courtney's
worried that she won't fit in. Courtney says it's just that the
group is extremely conservative. Mavis thinks Rita will look ridiculous
in the outfit, but Rita assures Mavis that she'll make it pop. That
night, Nasim introduces his date to Mavis. Olenka is a Polish woman
who resembles Jadwiga. Jadwiga enters, and the two women stare at
each other and then begin exchanging barbs. In an aside to Nasim,
Mavis observes that Olenka reminds her a lot of Jadwiga. Nasim says
that's nonsense. They couldn't be more different. Like Zsa Zsa and
Eva, says Mavis. Exactly! Olenka and Nasim exit, and Rita enters
in the suit that she's "Ritafied" into a short skirt and jacket
over nothing. Mavis makes a few additional adjustments and sends
Rita into the bar. Rita makes her entrance, and Courtney asks what
she did to her outfit. Stan, Courtney's boss on the Bush campaign,
is talking with Courtney about new ways to reach the young voters.
Rita joins the conversation, and Stan finds her fascinating. He
loves the ideas she contributes. He asks Courtney where he found
this treasure. Rita has native intelligence that's missing in this
campaign. Stan tells Courtney he'd like to take Rita to the focus
groups in Miami the next day. She'll help connect with the young
voters. Too bad Courtney can't go as well, but he'll be busy pamphleteering
in Harlem. They'll go in Stan's Gulfstream IV. Courtney beams proudly
when Stan says he sees Courtney and Rita as the new power couple.
Nasim and Olenka are at a Polish restaurant, and their date is going
very well. But after a passionate kiss, Nasim pulls back and sees-Jadwiga.
He runs out of the restaurant. When Mavis finds out about Rita's
trip with Stan, she wants to know if Courtney's okay with it. She's
cynical about Stan's intentions, but Rita assures her that Courtney
isn't worried. Mavis tells her poker group that Courtney is clueless.
Later, Nasim accuses Mavis of corrupting his mind. On his date with
Olenka, all her could see was Jadwiga. Mavis says that anyone can
see what's going on with him and Jadwiga. Nasim protests that Jadwiga
has a husband. he left her years ago, says Mavis. Rita is getting
ready to leave for Miami when Mavis takes Courtney aside. Rita's
getting on a man's jet without him. Then they'll be by the pool
in Miami… Stan comes in to say goodbye to Courtney. Rita will be
back in a couple of days. Tomorrow, says Courtney. When Courtney
asks Stan for more details about the trip, Stan asks him if he's
Rita's daddy. Courtney smacks Stan in the face, and he goes down.
Mavis asks Stan if this will affect Courtney's job. When he says
no, Mavis hits him too. Later, Nasim tells Jadwiga that it's over
with Olenka. They trade insults, their eyes lock and they kiss.
Nasim goes out with Olenka, a Polish woman, who, Mavis tells him,
is the spitting image of Jadwiga. And Mavis is cynical about the
intentions of Courtney's boss on the Bush campaign who wants to
fly Rita to Miami in his private jet without Courtney.
