Josh comes over to C.J.'s office, where she's packing stuff into her briefcase. He wants her to look at the transcript of Surgeon General Millicent Griffith's online chat. He directs her to page eight. While C.J.'s reading, Donna comes up and tells Josh that Toby's headed to his office and that Sam's on the phone. Josh says that he can't talk to him right now; Donna says he (I'm assuming Sam) says it's important. Josh says he'll be there in a minute; Donna trots off. C.J. says, "The Allman Brothers?" Josh says, "It gets a lot worse." C.J. repeats fragments of the sentences Josh read above, concluding, "And...I quit!" Josh says, "Let's go."
As C.J. follows Josh, she asks, "Is she kidding me with this?" Gosh, I hope not. I couldn't agree with the Surgeon General more. As they pedeconference, Josh tells C.J. that she just finished the chat five minutes ago, and asks C.J. to talk him through "the next twelve hours." C.J. says, "Well, these people got a story. I guarantee they called AP already." As they breeze past Carol, C.J. asks her to get her the wires. C.J. rushes along, thinking out loud, "It's too late for the [New York] Times and the [Washington] Post, but L.A. and San Francisco will have it, and it will be above the fold. The Today show will lead with it. Russert's gonna do a segment..." Just then they see Toby and Josh hails him. Toby says, "Guys...I'm in the Blue Ribbon meeting, I got Labour yelling at me. I got a real situation developing over there." Josh indicates that they've got a situation of their own. C.J. shows Toby page eight and they walk off together as Toby reads and C.J. asks Josh why he didn't call her while it was happening. Josh asks, "So you could do what?"
