1:00 PM CST. Josh and Donna lie in bed, next to each other but not touching, each looking a bit weirded out. This moment is totally brought to you by When Harry Met Sally. Josh asks if she wants some water. But Donna -- not realizing that she needs to say "Sure" so that he can go to the kitchen with a blissful smile on his face -- asks, "You have a bottle over there?" "Tap...water," he replies. Not for Donna: "No thanks. But thank you." With that, she gives him a great little smile and he then looks inordinately pleased. Oh good, he didn't need to go to the kitchen for water to do it. They both seem to relax a hair. He asks to turn on the TV and remarks, "At least I didn't bring my Blackberry to bed." That's a good thing, Josh, especially since you've been using a Treo. I only beat this like a dead horse because the Treo owners I know are very particular about their brand. You don't mix those two up. Josh: "It could be worse. Less romantic." "Got it," she says, but she's smiling. Dude, you're working for the same campaign. It's all good -- anyone can watch TV at any time. No judgment. There's a shot of Bartlet voting.
Donna then starts a new conversation, with the time-honored "This may sound silly." Josh is encouraging: "No, what?" It turns out Donna's worried about some Minnesota law. "That's certainly less romantic," he quips. Josh, just ride out the giddy and fun for now -- the talking can come on some day that isn't the biggest of your political career. But he actually isn't upset that the subject matter is work at all. I guess that must come with being Campaign Manager. She goes on, worried about the exit polls there and then brushes it off to paranoia, but Josh immediately makes a call to have it checked out and have the numbers sent over. Aw, workplace romance! That's really kind of sweet. Immediately, there's a knock at the door, and both Josh and Donna freeze and remark, "Speedy..." Josh's voice completely cracks as he calls out, "Hello?" It's Ronna, and she and Josh "hello" a couple of more times until she asks, "Do you have Donna?" Josh's quick-thinking response is a brilliant "Uh, what?" "Do you have Donna?" "Have her?" he squeaks. "Know where she is," Ronna specifies. Josh and Donna are trying to keep their giggles silent as she artfully hooks his boxers with her toe and gracefully hands them across the bed. I'm smitten with these two right now. My cold heart has melted at the Cute. Edie's walked up outside, in the meantime, and Ronna calls through the door to tell Donna that Lou needs her for MSNBC. Edie and Ronna totally realize what's going on -- it's their chance, since they didn't have a big reveal themselves the night before over scotch -- and giggle and run off as Edie drops the Minnesota numbers Josh had requested. There's lots of rustling from inside the room as they giggle and hurry away before Josh gets the door open.
