After the commercial, we're in C.J.'s office. She's talking to two women about something to do with science and technology; I can't tell whether the women are reporters or secretaries, but since I don't think I've seen them before, I'm going with reporters. Sam comes up to the door and knocks; C.J. dismisses the other two. Sam says he thinks he knows why she wanted to see him. C.J. says, "Do you? You sussed it out, huh?" She starts to lay into him about the media figuring out what's going on, to which he replies that there's nothing for the media to figure out. She tells him he can't spend time with a call girl; he'll get caught. Sam maintains his innocence, but C.J. tells him not to get cute with her. Sam points out that he didn't know Laurie was a call girl when he went home with her; C.J. counters that he went back to see her after that. Sam argues that he went back to see her, not to solicit her. C.J. tells him that it doesn't make any difference; Sam insists it does. C.J. begins to read him the riot act about how he works fifty feet from the Oval Office and he's consorting with a prostitute. Sam takes great umbrage at the word "consort" and talks about how he likes this woman as a friend, and she poses no threat to the President. Okay. But then he goes on to say that as a result of his friendship she may start living within legal bounds and ensure herself a greater future, and isn't that what they're supposed to be doing in the White House?
