Leo, Will, Josh, and the Hoynes guy walk to one end of the room. Leo tells them they'll do rock, paper, scissors on three. This is so unrealistic. Everyone knows you're supposed to say "one, two, three, shoot!" (Although I have a very distinct childhood memory of other kids in central New York saying "eins, zwei, drei, shoot!" Which, I don't know -- none of us were German.) And then they shoot. Josh and Will both go for rock, while the Hoynes guy throws paper. Consider yourselves covered, boys.
Josh, Santos, Helen, and Ned are walking through the bowels of the convention venue. Santos wonders how it came about that Hoynes is speaking last, and Josh has to explain the mechanics of paper covering rock. They walk past banners of what I assume are teams that normally play in this stadium. One is for something called "The Stompers." I'll claim that as a shout-out on Miss Alli's behalf. There's another banner for a team called "Damage." Those names seem unusually violent to me. Of course, I got part of my education at a school where all the teams were named "The Violets," so I suppose pretty much anything outside of the flower family might seem violent by comparison. Santos is wondering why Russell hasn't announced that Bundy is his Veep choice, and Josh thinks they're trying to put more distance between the rumors of Santos rejecting Russell and the announcement of Bundy. I guess Bundy doesn't want to be known as Russell's rebound guy. Josh thinks they'll announce after the first ballot and before the second in an attempt to pick up some Hoynes delegates. Helen doesn't sound too unhappy at the thought -- she'd rather not give a speech in front of twenty-five thousand spectators. Santos points out that it's more like twenty-five million. Way to soothe your wife's nerves. Helen's got some kind of Farrah Fawcett hair going on. She's got wings. She can fly. Right now she looks as though she'd like to strangle Santos. And Ned, who confirms the number.
