We open with a shot of the Roosevelt Room from above. Toby and Babish are sitting on the same side of the long table, but facing each other. We can see a bit of the chandelier, and each man has a lamp at his end of the table. Babish asks Toby, "Were you the sole individual involved in leaking this?" Toby: "Yes." Babish asks a series of questions aimed at finding out whether anyone even hinted that Toby leak the story. Partway through, the shot switches to a close-up of the back of Toby's head, with Babish out of focus in the distance. Babish asks whether anyone gave Toby a "nudge" or a "wink" to indicate that he should leak the story. To each question, Toby responds, "No." Eventually, he tells Babish, "It was conceived and executed solely and completely on my own." Babish's fuzzy head moves on to a series of questions designed to determine whether Toby let anyone know that he was going to leak the story. Again, Toby's response to each question is "no." After a few of these questions, the shot switches so that Babish's out-of focus-head is in the foreground and Toby's in-focus face is in the background. Toby asks, "We're gonna be here for quite a while, aren't we?" Babish asks him to answer the question. Toby: "No, I didn't speak to anyone at any time of any scenario involving myself or someone else thinking, planning, dreaming, or having an out-of-body experience related to the making of this sort of leak." Babish thinks Toby's answer was cute, but he suggests that he avoid being cute when he's speaking with law-enforcement agents about the leak. I know there are at least a few posters who think it's impossible for Toby to be anything but cute.
