Marjorie Palmiotti, Veep
Marjorie Palmiotti (Clea DuVall)
On the political satire Veep, Marjorie was introduced in Season 5 as a secret service agent and president Selina Meyers’ body double. In 5×06 it is revealed that she and the presidents daughter Catherine had fallen in love and were in a relationship. Marjorie resigned as an agent and the two of them spent the rest of the season as a couple. They’re both minor/secondary characters with short appearances.
Catherine and Marjorie are still together, with Marjorie heading up the Meyer fund, and have short appearances as a background/side plot in each episode. In episode 2 they announce they want to have a baby and they ask regular character Dan to be their sperm donor.
In episode 4, while at the gynecologist with Dan, they started considering a natural method of conception because artificial insemination didn’t “feel organic”.
Dan: “Why don’t we just puppy pile, okay? Then we’ll all get a bite to eat afterwards, you know. See a movie or something. You know, we’ll make it nice.”
Marjorie: “It could be interesting. He does have very delicate features.”
The idea is scraped because Dan has very low odds of being able to conceive. In episode 5 they ask their last resort, regular character Richard, former campaign aide and later Chief of Staff, who agrees.
