The Crackpots and These Women (1.5)

Margaret:
We do it at the first of every month.
Cathy:
We’ve missed a few months.
Sam:
But generally speaking, we try to do it on the first of every month.
Toby:
We’ve done it twice in twelve months.
Sam:
We’re a little behind.
Mandy:
I still don’t know what we’re talking about.
Toby:
It’s Throw Open Our Office Doors To People Who Want To Discuss Things That We Could Care Less About Day.
Mandy:
Well, that sounds goofy, doesn’t it?
Sam:
It’s not so bad. You talk to them for a minute. You give them a souvenir pen with the Presidential seal on it.
Mandy:
This isn’t a waste of time?
Margaret:
Oh, it’s definitely a waste of time, but it’s one of Leo’s pet office policies.
Mandy:
Why?
Leo:
Good morning.
Toby:
Sadly you’re about to find out.
Leo:
Andrew Jackson, in the main foyer of his White House, had a big block of cheese.
Toby:
Hmm.
Leo:
I am making a mental list of those who are snickering, and even as I speak I am preparing appropriate retribution. The block of cheese was huge. Over two tons. And it was there for any and all who might be hungry.
Toby:
Leo, wouldn’t this time be better spent plotting a war against a country that can’t possibly defend itself against us?
Leo:
We can do that later, Toby. Right now I’m talking about President Andrew Jackson.
Sam:
Actually, right now, you’re talking about a big block of cheese.
Leo:
And Sam goes on my list!
Sam:
What about Toby?
Leo:
I’m unpredictable. Jackson wanted the White House to belong to the people, so from time to time, he opened his doors to those who wished an audience.
Mandy:
And then he locked the doors behind them and made them eat two tons of cheese.
Leo:
It is in that spirit -
Sam:
Hang on. Mandy doesn’t go on the list?
Leo:
Mandy’s new.
Sam:
So it’s just me on the list?
Leo:
Yes. It is in the spirit of Andrew Jackson that I, from time to time, ask senior staff to have face-to-face meetings with those people representing organizations who have a difficult time getting our attention. I know the more jaded among you see this as something rather beneath you. But I assure you that listening to the voices of passionate Americans is beneath no one, and surely not the peoples’ servants.
Josh:
Sorry we’re late. Is it Total Crackpot Day again?
