Despite the warnings, David can't keep away from Elise. Big bad Thompson is called in to put an end to it. He warns David that his future is as the President, while Elise will become a world class dancer and they both don't need the distractions. At her rendition he uses his power so that Elise falls and sprains her ankle. David sees how much dancing means to her, so he leaves her in the hospital and walks out of her life.
Almost a year later, his campaign is back on track and going well - but he sees a wedding announcement in the paper that Elise is to marry her ex-boyfriend. Harry shows up again, feeling guilty, and teaches David to use the power of 'the hat' to walk through doors. David plans his route. He gets to the courthouse in time to stop Elise, and together they make a run for it. At the Statue of Liberty, they decide to put an end to it and see The Chairman.
They enter the secret Bureau building by turning the doorknob to the left and make it all the way to the roof - but are trapped by Thompson's men. They kiss - but then suddenly things are ok. Harry shows up to tellsThompson that he has been sacked, and that the Chairman has had a change of heart afterall. Great, it was all a waste of time.
Pity things didn't turn out quite so well for the poor guy ditched at the altar!
