Lewis at the panel discussion.

Lewis was a guest on a panel at Northwestern University, where he argued with Sharon over various subjects such as the appropriation of tax revenue. The debate was cut short when Jenny asked the panel "What makes America the greatest country in the world," prompting Will to launch into a tirade about why it isn't. Lewis sat quietly when Will berated him for his response to the question ("Freedom and freedom, so let's keep it that way"), though after they were escorted into a private room he, and Sharon, confronted Will about his behavior. ("We Just Decided To")
