C.J. enters an office where Leo is going through some documents. Apparently, he's still reviewing all those classified files he left sitting around. He's also been making some calls to Democratic members of the conference committee. They talk about how annoying it is that folks try to cram unrelated stuff into the budget. Leo asks C.J. how she's doing. She tells him, "I'm feeling a little over-interpreted." He tells her that when he was Secretary of Labor, "The National Enquirer ran a story that [he] married Elizabeth Taylor while sky-diving over New Mexico." Elizabeth Taylor should be so lucky. And then C.J. goes off on a long rant about the dilemma of the successful single woman. Since I'm not recapping Bridget Jones, I'll just cut to the chase: men weren't interested in C.J. when she was young and emotionally needy, and now that she's older, stronger, and independent, they're all too scared of her. She's also fretting about the fact that Tommy has not called her: "Maybe he has even less of an idea of how to deal with my alleged and fictitious lesbianism than I do." C.J. also describes her young self as "an exquisite collie." At the end of this speech, she looks at Leo as though she expects him to respond. He draws in his breath, and then asks her if she has any more call sheets for him. Heh. Not so much with the sharing, our boy Leo. As C.J. is leaving, she turns back to him: "I need you to stay, Leo. So does the President." And then Margaret interrupts to tell C.J. that Toby needs her.
