Donna tells Josh that Carrick held up another fifty-six promotions, and that the Army Secretary wants a meeting. Josh: "Unless the meeting is to strap Chris Carrick to his idiot missile launcher and fling him head-first into an ICBM -- which he'll miss -- then I'm not...." Donna interrupts to say that the Army Secretary is concerned about this becoming public. Josh says he's making it public: he's planning to leak it to "every newspaper in the known universe." Donna's wondering if Josh is sure that's a good idea, but Josh is already marching off, saying that he's calling Carrick's bluff: "I'm making him crawl down here on his knees." Josh says he'll be in the press office. Donna glances back at Josh's door, where Amy's standing forlornly, like the last preschooler to be picked up from day care.
Toby comes back to the bullpen and says to Will, "Sorry about before." Toby seems really uncomfortable and resigned as he tells him, "You have a future...here. Uh...we should talk about it." Will says he'd like to, as they go into Will's office. Toby says, "My portfolio, the speeches, the day-to-day...I'm gonna give it to you." Will: "You're leaving?" He says it more like a statement than a question, though. Toby says he's stepping back to do "big-think" and "work on the legacy." Will: "You're never going to give up the job. You're not capable of giving it up. You could move from Pennsylvania Avenue to the state of Pennsylvania, and...." Toby: "It's a Commonwealth." Will: "Fine, I'm trying to...." They talk over each other a bit and Will says, "I don't want your job!" Toby wants to know why not. Who wouldn't, with all the obvious joy it brings Toby? Will: "'Cause Bartlet's never going to finish the job he started. Name an issue: you're still clawing your way back. Someone has to be ready to take the handoff." Toby looks sad and not terribly surprised: "You took the Russell job." Will doesn't answer in words. He just looks at Toby, who says, "This isn't a line on a résumé. None of us...." He drops his hand and says, "You don't walk away," as he walks out. Will says, "We're on the same team!" Toby definitely does not see it that way: "Yeah, well, maybe we'll print up t-shirts."
