On HBO’s Veep, Amy Brookheimer (Anna Chlumsky) and Dan Egan (Reid Scott) have more in common than they have in opposition. Both are cutthroat, both are ambitious, and both are terribly, terribly attractive. So why can’t they just doooooo it already?

The answer, of course, is that Veep isn’t the kind of sitcom that’s based around a will they/won’t they relationship, which is something that—in general—we should be grateful for. And yet...

Dan and Amy are both dickheads. Charming, good looking dickheads who don’t necessarily deserve happiness, but—for viewer satisfaction— should definitely make out a few times on camera.
