Jed is in the kitchen of the residence. Charlie enters, and Jed greets him: "Charles Young, look at that. Made the effort to come visit the old man." Charlie looks a bit perplexed and wants to know where Curtis is. Jed says, "Who?" and Charlie expositions that Curtis is Jed's new body man. Jed: "Nice fellow, Curtis, but he's no Charlie, Charlie. I gotta tell you, he's no good at tying a tie." And with that, Jed offers up the ends of his bowtie to Charlie's ministrations. Charlie points out that he can't tie a tie either, and Jed says, "That makes three of us."
Close-up on the book. The title, we can see, is Full Disclosure. Mysterious hands open up the book, and we see that it's a signed copy. The inscription reads, "Josh. Time to lead. John." We can still hear the interview going on in the background. The mysterious hands belong to Josh, and he looks pensive as he reads the inscription. There's also a vein in the middle of his forehead that looks as though it could blow at any minute. Of course, that might just be a result of his wearing what looks to be the highest, tightest collar since Calvin Coolidge.
C.J. is in her office doing something with her handbag. (Maybe she had to move the secret launch codes from one purse to another?) Margaret comes in to tell her that she has a call. C.J. asks Margaret to make sure she has Josh's notes from the previous day's summit meeting, and Margaret tells her that Donna already delivered them. C.J. asks Margaret who's on the phone. Margaret: "The Vice-President. The former Vice-President." C.J. has a slight look of alarm on her face when she hears that.
Abbey walks into the residence kitchen, asking what the delay is. Stockard Channing is a total knockout in this dress, with her hair up and a great flashy choker. I can't remember when I've seen her look better. (I know I talk about the women's clothes far more than the men's in this episode, but the men are all wearing tuxedoes and suits. Boooring.) As Abbey walks in, Jed thanks Charlie for his help, and Charlie walks out. Abbey helps Jed get into his jacket as he tells her that he couldn't tie his tie. Abbey: "Yeah, I know that. Can we go now?"
A final shot of the interview (on whose monitor, it's not quite clear). Hoynes is telling Dianne that he would like to return to public life: "I think I can make a contribution."
We see a street with some traffic on it, but not much. There's a restaurant or diner on the other side of the street with some neon in the window. This is clearly nowhere near the White House, although there are many other places in D.C. that it could be. Josh steps across the sidewalk, his back to the camera, and gets into a car. Hoynes is in the driver's seat. He thanks Josh for coming and asks him if he saw the interview. Josh lies (badly) that he didn't. He also says that he didn't look at the book. Hoynes starts to say something to Josh, and Josh interrupts him: "I have no idea why I'm here, Mr. Vice-President." Hoynes: "Yes, you do." Credits, sans Smits.
