As Debbie walks out of the Oval Office, and Charlie closes the door behind them, there's a man standing there talking to some other woman. Sam's standing there in the background, too. McKittridge says, "Debbie?" She says, "Mr. McKittridge?" He wants to know what she's doing there. She stutters that she was interviewing. McKittridge glares at Charlie, asking, "Charlie, how many times do we have to..." Charlie says, "I know, but I brought her in." Debbie says it doesn't matter because she's not getting the job. McKittridge snaps at her, "It does matter. There's a way that it works." Just then, Jed comes out of his office, hollering, "Brian Dweck, CFO of Colfax and contributor to Representative Mark McKittridge, whose brother is the Director of the White House Office of Presidential Personnel, wants a job for his son, David -- 'Wants a Dwink of Wawa.' My powers of deduction are not to be mocked." Way to go, Encyclopedia Brown. You've solved the Case of the Incredibly Atypical Nepotistic Government Hiring Situation. Can you get on the mystery of How Charlie Knows When To Open The Door next? And after that: Why Toby And Josh Have No Cell Phones? McKittridge commences the ass-covering, saying, "Mr. President, whatever she told you, I assure you..." Jed barks that she didn't tell him anything. He ordered her to and...he turns to Charlie and says, "By the way, my powers of ordering are a joke. I can create an agency but I can't get her to..." So long as you know it. He tells McKittridge: "She didn't give you up." He goes back into his office. Sam follows him in. Man, the lighting in this scene just gets more and more orangey. It's as if it's completely lit by candles. Sam closes the door. Jed stands behind his desk with his hands in his pockets. Sam asks, "Was she funny?" Jed thinks, looks up and says, "Have the agents stop her at the door for a second." He runs out. Sam picks up the phone.
