Margaret comes in to tell Leo the Chairman's here. She asks whether he has any idea why there were women with aprons and rolling pins at Mrs. Bartlet's Madison event this morning. Leo asks how in the blue blazes he would know. No actually, he just asks Margaret to elaborate, which she does, being Margaret. A friend of hers went to hear Abby speak and there were twenty women in back wearing aprons and holding rolling pins. Maybe they thought they were at the Pillsbury Bake-Off. Leo doesn't know: "Maybe they were making pies?" Margaret wants to talk about it, but Leo just wants her to send in his appointment. Fitz comes in and closes the door. He says, "The tracks are covered." Leo: "Yeah." He doesn't sound convinced. Fitz: "We did a legitimate SAR with the UK and Royal Qumari Guard." (I believe SAR is search and rescue.) He adds, "This is a plane that went down in the Bermuda Triangle. Plain and simple." Leo wonders whether these Bermuda Triangle things really happen. Fitz seems amazed that Leo would ask. Leo says he thought it might be like Toscanini landing in a corn field. Fitz cites the many conveyances that have disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle. Leo wonders whether there's a chance that they could find the plane. Fitz says, "We dismantled the ELT, left the plane in twenty-seven pieces, scattered among other wrecks, buried in underwater landslides and limestone cliffs. And if they find the plane, there's still no evidence of anything being anything." Fitz says that there were SEALS and Special Ops doing the job who knew what they were doing. Leo accepts this and suggests that they stay in touch during the day. As Fitz nears the door, Leo asks, "Just out of curiosity, what do you think would happen?" Fitz says, "I don't know what would happen to you and me, but I'm pretty sure the President would be invited to see the inside of the Hague." Leo's all tough-guy, and says they can invite all they want; he isn't going. Why, exactly, should POTUS be exempt from the same consequences as leaders of the other sixty-one member states? Just because he's the P of TUS? Oh, okay. Fitz suggests that this might be a good time for Leo to reconsider their position on an international war crimes tribunal. Leo: "Perhaps this would be a good time for you to..." Fitz: "Get out of your office." He leaves saying he'll talk to Leo later.
