But the president is married and Olivia has just gotten a marriage proposal so the question -- -- their love survive. It's not -- for tomorrow. Listen to me. Whatever is wrong and -- excellent student. Sooner news aren't just an. -- We Elliott laugh one man may have the answer Tony Goldman joining us that it does what to expect to welcome Mr. President and I think -- does it ever get old being addressed that way -- -- -- him in the he's definitely. -- required in the family members from the line you will play -- to the -- every time -- -- And -- -- relationship like between -- that I mean obviously gets complicated as the season has progressed. Is this going to be some that's going to be sustainable. You know looking to tell you all like it is I don't know according -- -- on a sort of -- that I can't reveal what I do know too much but what a but I don't know much your Chanda me. Herself doesn't decide. How until the very last minute now things are gonna go and and his actors and we just don't know until we get the script so a little bit of head of the -- Ryan I can tell you that. Fitz is.

Shot obviously -- very complicated. Dialogue -- a lot of complicated plot twists and turns to you ever gotten a script and said I don't supplement mailed it this believable.

It's never hard to -- your real because that it's outrageous but it's always connected to something. Deeply human. So -- has been so much fun where in a very politically charged charged environment. Do you think the show would be as successful if it -- may be launched four years ago five years ago no I don't because I think people of a real. Sense of how highly charged the political atmosphere is and politics have become their own kind of show business except it's for real. So that informs -- -- such a great way especially being right at the -- election cycle. You know -- the presidential elections past you know falling from best of times per. -- has joked before and you've made you've caught up on this line as well that there is a scandal pace the progress what is the scandal pace.

It works and -- the message is clear and and it's you know it's good challenge audiences -- you do need coming forward when you're watching scandal. Or you'll miss -- management -- Watson to twice. But. You know our brains. Working the and audiences -- it's really Smart kids it's not a casually consumed show you don't you get into it which is why have such a dedicated following that now.
