For most guys, watching a girl run away from you in a room full of Senators would be the final straw. But as 1600 Penn fans now all too well, Skip (Josh Gad) is far from  an ordinary guy.

In this exclusive sneak peek from Thursday's episode (9:30/8:30c on NBC), Skip is over the moon about getting mailroom girl Stacey to go on a date with him and is determined to make his last chance count. "I really do have to make this the most romantic night ever," Skip tells Emily (Jenna Elfman).
