Donna arrives at the airport, looking for Hardin. She finds Ellen, Hardin's assistant. Ellen pretends to be pleased to see Donna. Donna asks where Hardin is. Ellen plays dumb. Donna says she was supposed to be on Delta 15, but wasn't. Nor was she on two other flights that came out of Atlanta. Ellen says she came in this morning. Donna explains that she's trying to arrange a call to the Senator. Ellen lies through her teeth, saying she's not sure where Hardin is right now, but as soon as she tracks her down she'll set it up. Donna thanks her and walks away; as she does, she notices a guy collecting file boxes from the luggage carousel. She approaches a passenger with an envelope under his arm and says, "Sir? Excuse me, My name is Donna and if you look at me I think you'll know I'm not going to steal from you or waste your time in any way. Can I borrow that envelope for just one moment?" Trusting Guy readily agrees. Well, that was certainly a lot easier than convincing Christian Slater to trade votes with her. Frankly, I don't care how trustworthy her farm-girl ass looks, I wouldn't let a stranger in an airport take any of my belongings and then give them back to me. She grabs it and zips over to the guy at the luggage carousel and says, "Excuse me, is it Rick?" Carousel Guy: "Jason." Donna: "Jason! I'm sorry, I'm new. This needs to get to the Senator. Are you going in the car to Dirksen?" Jason says he's going to Dirksen, but the Senator's at the Women in Media luncheon. Donna: "Right! Stupid, stupid. Thank you." She walks away, and gives the envelope back to Trusting Guy.
