They will go above and beyond to help you.
Not everyone you work with will go out of their way to help you do your job. But when you find that special someone, you gotta "make it official." Even if it means giving them a stapler or something.
While the normal duties of an assistant can vary from office to office, Blake certainly goes above and beyond. During a trip abroad he found out (while covertly socializing) about a secret meeting being held by the German Chancellor that Secretary McCord was then able to crash. Now some will argue that having a blast and partying it up in Brussels isn't your traditional method of going the "extra mile," but it certainly got results. Also it led to Blake being arrested. That's sacrifice, people.
