Kevin O'Dowd: So these FDU numbers, they're, they're unbelievable.

Maria Comella: They're pretty good.

Kevin O'Dowd: What the hell are we going to do for the next 18 months to keep this going?

Maria Comella: That's a good question.

Kevin O'Dowd: I think we're going to need to do something big.

Maria Comella: OK.

Kevin O'Dowd: Let me bounce a couple things off you. How about another tool kit? OK. A second New Jersey comeback. Everybody loves comeback stories.

Maria Comella: Yeah, we've already had one though.

Kevin O'Dowd: What if we merge every college and university with Rowan? The South Jersey guys will love that.

Maria Comella: You know, seriously, I think we're tapped out. I mean, there's only so many freaking web videos we can do. Town halls?

Kevin O'Dowd: Screw it. Four town halls a week the rest of the year.

Maria Comella: Done. We'll just change the music and the banners. He'll never know.

Governor Christie: More town halls? Are those two kidding me? Easy for them to say. They never even show up at the town halls. I can't take one more question about flooding. I don't want any more questions about being vice president, and these kids, these kids with all these questions. I can't take it anymore. So no. They're going to have to come up with something other than town halls. They got to come up with some better ideas than that. But you know, I can maybe come up with something even bigger than that. I'll come up with something bigger.

Trooper: Governor.

Governor Christie: Hey trooper, how are you doing? You guys got any problems you want me to handle, like a fire anywhere, people trapped?

Trooper: No.

Governor Christie: Like a bad automobile accident where you need me to help some folks?

Trooper: No, nothing like that.

Governor Christie: Maybe a cat in a tree?

Trooper: No, I think we're all set here.

Mayor Booker: Trooper, what have we got?

Trooper: Mayor, thank you for coming. There's a two alarm fire down on State Street. We do have a car broken down on Route 1, and yes, a little girl has lost her cat in a tree.

Mayor Booker: All right trooper, as you were. Governor, I got this.

Governor Christie: Booker!

Governor Christie: No Mr. Senate President, I can't thank you enough. No, no. Well, we'll be able—we'll work it out. Thank you Steve. No, no, I'm not going to hang up. You hang up. No, no, you hang up first. It's your turn to hang up first. Then I'll hang up.

What was that?

Governor Christie: Oh, hey Steve, hey listen, I got to get going. I think we might have a flat tire here. All right, all right, I'll hang up first. Good bye.

Mayor Booker: Hey Guv, Guv, sit tight. I got this.

Governor Christie: Booker!

What do you mean you can't find his guitar? You only have one job and you blew it! What are we going to do?

Mayor Booker: Hey, hey, calm down man. Listen, give him this.

Where did you get this?

Mayor Booker: Hey, I always carry a spare act. You just tell Bruce I'll see him at my house tomorrow for brunch.

Mayor, thank you so much.

Mayor Booker: Oh, you're very welcome.

Governor Christie: Absolutely.

Oh my God! My baby!

Mayor Booker: Governor, stand back! I got this, I got this.

Governor Christie: Booker!

Mayor Booker: Governor, Governor Romney, Governor Romney. Yes, yes that was me running into the fire. Yes, I do shovel snow as well. Yes, you're very persuasive but I'm not a number two guy. I'm not a background singer. Mitt, sir, with all due respect I know you need a big—

Governor Christie: Excuse me Mayor. I got this.

Mayor Booker: Christie!
