Black screen. 1:20 - President met with Mrs. Walker. 1:40 - President met with Mrs. Harrison. We see Air Force One in the clouds. C.J.'s talking to the press corps in its section of the plane. She says that they've got an addition to their running list of things Writchie's not, after a speech he made that morning, during which he said, "I'm no scientist, but I know a thing or two about Physics." She says they can add that to "doctor," "mindreader," and "Chinese." One reporter asks about the women dressed in aprons and rolling pins. C.J.: "They were dressed in rolling pins?" He says it's from the Milwaukee Sentinel, which is apparently not the correct name of the paper: it's the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. C.J. doesn't know, and asks him to find out. Another reporter wants to know whether POTUS is coming back for questions. C.J. says he'll try, but that he's interviewing potential secretaries. She tells them that there are steak sandwiches for lunch. I'll bet the airline meals are pretty good on Air Force One. Nobody seems to miss Josh, Donna, and Toby.
POTUS is with Ed and Larry. They seem to have moved up in importance. They have some brief, meaningless (in terms of what we can glean about it from this scene) exchange with POTUS, and then leave together. Just kiss already. Charlie brings in a middle-aged woman named Meredith Walker. She's wearing a nice suit and a necklace that is a monument to bourgeois taste. She has kind of a cold, intimidating look about her. She and POTUS shake hands, and he remarks on how their schedule's so crazy that sometimes they have to schedule meetings on the plane in order to get everything done. He asks, "Were you impressed by the plane?" She replies, "It's an airplane, sir. I'm not very easily impressed." Yeah, you so don't get the job, lady. If the President's impressed with the plane, it seems like it might be smart to pretend to be, too. Jed counters, "It's got an apartment and an operating room." And steak sandwiches. She says, "Yes, sir." He says she's met with the director of the Office of White House Personnel, Donald McKittridge, and asks whether she's met with Charlie. She has. He says that Charlie probably mentioned that this job requires the successful applicant to be able to hold a lot of dates, names, and numbers in her head. She knows. He asks if she was told the pay scale. She was. He asks whether she knows about some of the perks. Mrs. Walker: "Like what?" Jed: "Well, for instance, we have our own 747 and it's flown by an Air Force General." She says, "Yes," in a pretty hoity-toity way. All right, lady, that was your last chance. Jed puts on his glasses and says, "Okay, let's talk about your last job."
