Back at the table, Sam, C.J., and Toby are talking. Everybody is a dark, glowing red. Sam is saying, "You gotta ask yourself, multi-million-dollar bonuses are deductible and not tuition?" C.J. says it's because corporations donate to all the members of the tax-writing committees. Sam says it was a rhetorical question: "I knew you knew the answer." C.J. says that Writchie's already coming after them for politicizing the budget: "Plus, Leo hates to make policy through tax code because then we can't do any kind of reform without unravelling it." Josh returns to the table. Sam asks, "Was that Amy?" Josh says it was, and tells them that if the Sullivan decision is upheld, Stackhouse wants to get into the debate and isn't going to endorse the President. Sam: "Had to see that coming." Well, apparently they didn't. Josh gets up to call Bruno. Sam insists that the court will stay the effect and that Stackhouse won't be in the debate: "Josh'll take care of it. Anyway, college tuition." C.J. says: "Another reason not to do it." Toby says there are lots of reasons not to do it, and then begins waxing on about Matt Kelley and tells them the whole story. He concludes: "There are a lot of reasons not to do it, but during the first campaign, the President said there are two kinds of politicians." Sam: "The ones who try to say 'yes,' and the ones who try to say 'no.'" Toby: "We're going to throw these guys out, 'cause they want to say 'no.'" C.J.: "Well, I guess if we're going to get thrown out, I don't want it to be for that. Let's take it to Leo." Sam looks across the room at Josh, who's on the phone, and gives him a thumb up. Josh returns the gesture. Toby wanders off.
We hear a phone ringing as a camera looks down from above a roof into the window of a house. A woman answers and says, "Matt? Matt, it's for you. A man named Toby Ziegler. Do you know him?" Matt takes the phone. Toby says, "Matt? It's me, from last night." Matt growls that if Toby doesn't stop bothering him, he's going to get a restraining order. No, we don't hear what he says, but based on Toby's reply, we can tell he asks if they got home okay. Toby then says, "Let me tell you what we're working on..." as the picture fades to black and Aimee Mann sings, " Oh, let us turn our thoughts today/ To Martin Luther King..." Yes, let's.
