Out in the hall, Josh runs into Donna, who's just arriving at work. We already knew she cleaned up well, but she also cleans up quickly, too: she looks way less rough around the edges than the guys do. She asks, "Did you sleep all right?" He says he did, but then he read this thing..." Donna's caught up to him at this point and is standing in front of him; she makes a subtle, impatient gesture that reminds him to at least act as if he gives a damn about her welfare. Josh gets it: "How are you doing?" She says she's well. As they walk to her desk, Josh asks what's on for tonight. Donna says he's having a meeting with the state party chair and saying energizing things to the staff. Josh: "Are we in any danger at all of losing Massachusetts?" She says no. He wants to know why he's doing this. She says, "Because." Josh: "I can't just go straight to the event?" Donna says, "'Cause everybody's going to the campaign first and we just spent twenty hours trying to get out of Indiana." Josh: "Who's at Rock the Vote?" Donna: "Aimee Mann, the Barenaked Ladies, Chrissie Hynde, Sixpence None The Richer, Aaron Neville, Diamondback Whale, Daisy Chain, Next Big Thing, The Cruel Shoes, and Single-Cell Paramecium." Josh: "You've just been practicing for when I asked the question, right?" Donna: "Yes." Josh: "And you made up 'Cruel Shoes'?" Donna: "No. 'Single-Cell Paramecium.'" We hear the sirens of the motorcade arriving outside and see C.J. arriving through a doorway down the hall. Donna starts waving her arms, jumping up and down, and hollering, "We're here! We're here!" just like Josh did in Indiana. Josh asks her, "Would you stop?" She doesn't. Josh: "You know, everybody's really over that now." Behind him, C.J. calls out: "Admiral Scott! Your expedition's returned." Josh mutters "All right" to himself as he turns to face her. C.J.: "Let me take a look at you, Don Quixote de la Mancha." Josh says Don Quixote wasn't an explorer. C.J.: "No, but he rode around on a horse. You sleep?" Josh: "I did better than that." C.J. jokes: "Well, keep it to yourself." As she walks toward her office she says, "I need you to weigh in on Ritchie and Title IX." Josh says he wrote a memo. C.J. thanks him.
