In the next scene, Danny and C.J. are in her office. He's letting her know, as a courtesy, that he's going to be asking around about Sam and the call girl. She's trying to convince him that it's "much ado about nothing," but Danny argues that it doesn't look that way. C.J. defends Sam, saying that he knows right from wrong, and while it would make her life easier if Sam weren't friends with this woman, Sam does get to choose his friends. She doesn't get to choose them for him, and neither do Danny's readers. C.J. further asserts, "There's something commendable about Sam's behaviour here. Don't ask me what, but there is. And I'm sticking by him until the President orders me otherwise, and I'm going to look very unfavourably on those who seek only to make us look like fools." Danny tells her that he'll drop it, but warns her that she better get "dee'd up here, because not everybody's a good guy." I have no idea what "dee'd up" means. At first I thought he said "teed up" but being the anal recapping nerd that I am, I listened to it about ten times and it's definitely a "d" sound. Anyway, he figures eventually someone's going to tail Seaborn, and reminds her that he found out about it somehow. C.J. weakly tries to get him to tell her how he found out, but he's not having any of that. He just thinks any opponents who find out will just hang on to the information until the eve of "something big," and then try to use it to blow them out of the water. C.J.'s phone rings and she takes the call; Danny starts to leave but she tells him to hang on; she'll give him a ten-minute head start on something "for being a good guy." When she gets off the phone, she tells him "We're out of Syrian airspace."
Josh is giving Charlie the fifty-cent tour around the White House. "This used to be the White House Counsel's office until Toby and the communications staff conquered and pillaged." Josh points out the Map Room, the Roosevelt Room, the Oval Office, the Chief of Staff's office. "The only thing left to do is say hello to the President." At that, Charlie comes to a dead stop but Josh keeps walking. He's rambling on about how they're about to go on air when he notices Charlie's not at his side any more. He turns around and beckons Charlie with his finger; Charlie doesn't look quite as scared as a deer caught in the headlights, but he's close. I believe they were supposed to be doing this TV appearance in the Embassy Room, not the Oval Office, but it looks like the Oval Office to me. It's hard to tell with all the crap and the people in the room. It's a whirl of activity, with monitors and equipment being set up, POTUS yelling for his glasses, people trying to talk to POTUS, and various people racing or standing around. Josh stands at the edge of the room with a fairly nervous Charlie. POTUS is asking Toby and Sam about the "BDA" again (my guess is, Bombing Damage Assessment? Best I can do ["Sounds good to me." -- Wing Chun]) but Sam and Toby explain that there's a problem with getting the information, since they usually get their information from sources inside Syrian intelligence, and they just blew up Syrian intelligence. POTUS yells, "Oh, for crying out loud! Will somebody get on the phone to CNN and find out if we hit anything?" Just then some guy in a sweater-vest comes in and hands him the BDA. POTUS thanks him and says, "Now, if I only had my glasses..." Mrs. Landingham enters the office tentatively and starts to tell him that the porters have searched his bedroom from top to bottom looking for his glasses. POTUS complains that he hasn't had his glasses all day and that they could have brought in an optometrist by now. Seriously, would this guy not have a second pair? A copy of his prescription? An optometrist who'd have his prescription on file? Any or all of the above? Is there really no money in the federal budget for this? Anyway, he snipes a bit more at Mrs. L. and Nancy. C.J. asks POTUS to familiarize himself with the information on the Phoenix, which I'm assuming is some military craft or other; Jed's very short-tempered with her and says he got the bri
