In the Oval Office, everybody's cooling their heels waiting for Jed and Leo to return. Toby's perched on the desk fiddling with a pen. C.J. comes up and stands behind Toby's right shoulder. She asks if he knows anything about as story going around about the Secret Service investigating Bertram Coles. Toby says he doesn't. C.J. tells Toby that Maggie Greeenwald is quoting him as saying the Secret Service investigates all threats made against the President, and that it's White House Policy not to comment. "Did you say that?" Toby says, "Yeah. Hey, you don't suppose that's how the story got started, do you? You know what, C.J., you tell Bert Coles that Toby Ziegler said there's a new sheriff in town." C.J. says nothing but smirks at him. Ride 'em, cowboy! ["deborah, for heaven's sake. You're a married woman!" -- Wing Chun]
Charlie's standing in what looks like an anteroom, and an extremely yellow one at that, wondering what Josh has gotten him into. Josh comes up behind him and apologizes for how things have been going, saying it's been a bad day for the President: "I have to tell you, he's ordinarily an extremely kind man, placing a very high premium on civility. Today...it's just been a very difficult few days for him." Charlie seems unmoved and says, "I think I should probably go," probably wondering about now whether Burger King is hiring.
