Donna comes up to Josh in the hall. Josh says he's sorry and that it's not what it looks like. Donna says it's fine. Josh says it's the HHS budget, it's a hard deadline, and it's important to POTUS. Donna says it's really okay. She takes off her coat and asks where to start. Josh tells her to call the policy councils.
Charlie passes a TV with the Weather Channel on. Will stands at the door and introduces himself. Charlie says the president is set to see him. Will freaks out and says he's supposed to be meeting with Toby. Charlie says Toby got called to the Hill by Leo, so Will has to meet with POTUS, sans Toby. Will wants to reschedule and rushes out just as the door opens and Bartlet emerges. He asks about Toby. Charlie introduces Will, who was trying to scurry out of the room. POTUS asks Will to come in. "Oh, no, no...no no no," Will sputters. POTUS says he sent some notes on the Congressional session. "Did you?" Will asks. What is with him? POTUS asks if that's not why he's here. Will says he was there to meet Toby. "To see me," POTUS says. "Yes!" Will counters. Are we there yet, dad? POTUS asks if Will would like to come back with Toby. Oh, yes, he would. Will says thanks and calls him, "Mr. Justice, Mr. Bartlet, Mr. President." POTUS nods. Will is crushed. Charlie says he's seen worse. "Really?" Will asks. "No," Charlie says. Ba-dum bump!
Will runs into Toby in the hall. Toby is just coming in. Will asks if he was at the Hill. "On the Hill, you're not at the Hill," Toby corrects. Toby asks how it went. Will says it didn't go very well. "Presidential flameout?" Toby asks. "Flameout"? Finally, something I can relate to from recapping Smallville. Toby asks if it feels like he'll ever know the love of a real woman, whatever that means. "Could we not talk about it?" Will asks. Yes, let's all please not talk about anything for a moment. Toby asks what POTUS said about the Congressional session. Toby deduces that they didn't get that far. Toby goes on about looking in the mirror and how this defeat will be on Will's mind the next time he tries to make love to a real woman. I hate that this makes me have to think about whether Sorkin got laid right before or right after he wrote this. Will says this is important. Toby asks an assistant to set up some time for himself and Will with POTUS. Toby notices some Sam posters on Will's office walls. He makes a general announcement about campaigning in federal buildings. He says they should use something else, like maybe shaving cream.
