“These stupid white dudes fighting (with Whitney Houston playing in the background!!) while this black woman waits for them to tire themselves out so she can fix their problems. As ridiculous as it is, it’s my absolute favorite scene of the entire first season…and a fitting metaphor for the moment our country is in.”
