The always-good-for-a-laugh Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden, seems to have had quite a blast hanging out with his favorite TV counterpart at Tuesday night’s White House State Dinner. 

According to a White House pool report, “Veep” star Julia Louis-Dreyfus told the press that her favorite part of the dinner honoring French President François Hollande was that she got to sit next to Biden. The (real) Veep quickly, who was within earshot of the conversation, quickly chimed in, quipping “Hey, stop screwin’ around, she’s my date! Just kidding.” before bursting out in laughter.

Louis-Dreyfus, who attended the function with her father, French-American businessman Gérard C. Louis-Dreyfus, also tweeted about her fun with Biden.

Biden has acknowledged on several occasions in the past that he is a fan of the show, which comically portrays the daily workings of the United States’ second most powerful politician. Louis-Dreyfus, who plays Vice President Selina Meyers on the show, told the media that the former Delaware senator congratulated her via phone on winning the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series in 2013.

“[Biden] was in touch with me to congratulate me on winning the Emmy for this part, and he was very funny about it, which led me to believe that he may have seen a couple of episodes,” she said.

A few weeks later, the duo met up in person for lunch and to film an episode of the real vice president’s online audio series “Being Biden.”

“This is hilarious. I can’t believe, alright — I’m Julia Louis-Dreyfus, let me tell you about this picture.  This is a picture of two vice presidents hard at work in the vice president’s office in the West Wing,” Louis-Dreyfus said in the episode titled “Two Vice Presidents.”

The third season of Louis-Dreyfus’ hit HBO show premieres on April 6. You can watch the official tease trailer for the upcoming season below.
