Charlie asks, "Is Chef Boyardee around?" Zoey wonders why Charlie has to do that. Charlie: "I was asking after him." Zoey: "We were having a perfectly nice..." Charlie: "Sorry." Zoey: "And on tonight of all nights, when we should be thinking about..." Charlie: "Why is tonight different from others?" Slight nod to the Haggadah there? Zoey says it's because Charlie was shot at. Charlie: "Well, not me, personally, but I see all the more reason to..." Zoey interjects that she's going to France for three months after graduation. She explains that Frenchie asked her a couple of days ago to come to his family's farmhouse near Avignon: "No press. No politics. It's what I want to do." Charlie thinks it's a great thing to do: "I just don't know why you're doing it with him." She says he's been out with plenty of women since they broke up. Charlie says he hasn't. I can't imagine when he would have the time. Then again, Donna found time for that second job. Zoey says that every college student in D.C. tells her what Charlie's up to. She adds that every time he's gone out with someone else, she's been supportive. Charlie: "'Supportive' how? I didn't even know you knew." Zoey: "That's how!" They keep bickering, and Charlie tells her he doesn't want her to go to France with Frenchie. Zoey: "Why don't you like him?" Charlie replies, "Because..." Zoey: "It's been four years in the White House. And another being the daughter of a candidate. Eight years as governor. My grades get printed in the paper. My boyfriends are in the paper. I live and die with my parents' successes and failures. And so do you. Sometimes even more than me. And Jean-Paul doesn't. He's happy. He's...just...happy." Charlie: "That's 'cause he's got $500 million and no conscience." Zoey says softly, "No, it isn't. He cares about things. And one of them is me. And none of them are this. And that's appealing to me right now." Sure, but...he can't be the only guy in the world who feels that way. Charlie says he can understand that. She says she has to go study: "Sorry you got shot at again." Now there's a card I bet Hallmark hasn't yet thought of. Charlie watches her walk away. Well, this day just gets better and better.
Jed's back on the phone with Chigorin. There's a lot of yelling going on. Leo's talking this time, too. They're still trying to sell their "taking pictures of coastal erosion" story, but Chigorin ain't buying. He's sent out his own S&R team to get the plane. Leo says they're going to see it: "Because in five minutes I'm telling the President to blow it up." Chigorin retorts, "Feel free." Jed suddenly tries a novel approach: the truth. Ignoring Leo's look of concern, Jed confesses that the U.S. spy planes were taking pictures of Kaliningrad. He explains that they were taking pictures of black-market nuclear materials being transported to nongovernmental elements: "Rogue engineers, unemployed military scientists, ex-KGB...it's just as big a problem for you as it is for us. But you're not dealing with it, so we were taking pictures of Kaliningrad." Jed tells Chigorin that they're going to have to trust each other a little bit. Well, that's rich coming from the guy who's been a lying liar about his spy plane all night. He says that the U.S. will share the pictures they got, but not the technology they used to get them: "Otherwise I'm detonating it, and neither of us see the pictures." Except that according to the GovExec.com Gaffe Report, "UAVs transmit pictures in real-time via satellite, so there would be no need to recover the vehicle to get the pictures. One anonymous but well-placed source says, 'There would be no point in the data being held in the plane because that would defeat the purpose of an unmanned data-gathering platform.'" Jed tells Chigorin again that they have to trust each other: "Our two countries have stopped the world from annihilating itself for sixty years because of conversations like this one." Oh, for...don't get me started. Chigorin says he will talk it over with his people. They hang up and Leo says, "Good. I'd have said, 'We weren't spying on you, we were spying for you,' but..." Jed says that if he calls back, they'll have a deal. In the meantime, he wants to play poker.
