Secret negotiations with the Chinese turn the Christmas break into a classic farce, complete with translators, regifting, and another annoying blonde woman.

In the meantime, Jonah stumbles into the House of Representatives thanks more to other people fucking up even worse than he does.

So good! I cringed so much during this episode. The re-gift circle and Catherine's girlfriend wearing the kimono were awesome. Also mistaking the Chinese president for the cook.

This was one of those episodes of comedy where you could clearly see what was coming and it was so well put-together that I wanted to keep watching anyway.

It was a reverse Gift of the Magi.

I mean, I guess I should have expected that the Chinese premier was going to reveal he spoke English all along, but the nice thing is that there's so much else going on at once that it's not lampshaded (and really only embarrassing in hindsight) that he understood all the ridiculous things Selina was trying to tell the translator.

Always great to see Sally Phillips. This was a good episode.
