Josh walks over to Marla's desk and says, "I need you to make me a plane reservation as quickly as you can. I need to go to Houston." Marla: "Texas?" Josh confirms his and starts to walk away. But the shoe woman does not just jump when you tell her to: "Hold on, hold on, let me get a pen." Josh just yells to another assistant to get him on the next plane to Houston. He gives Marla a really cold look and stalks off. Some posters on the forums have complained that we finally get an African-American administrative assistant on the show and she turns out to be much less competent than all the other (white) assistants we've seen. I can see the point, but I think the real reason Marla is not a good assistant is because she's a temp. And we all know temps suck.
Air Force One. The posse is walking down a corridor, and C.J. is quite thrilled with the agreement, telling Jed, "I could kiss you on your married mouth." Abbey tells her to watch it. They discuss some of the details of the agreement. C.J. tells Jed, "You got potential, sir. You oughta think about running for office." C.J. is looking for a phone so that she can call Leo: "I want to tell Leo McGarry that this sonofagun just blasted us a North Korea summit. The man is a force of nature." Toby is just upset that there is no recording of the negotiations for posterity.
In Jed's office (the Flying O, I think I'll call it, assuming we ever see it again), Millie tells Jed, "They're planning a ticker tape parade out there." Abbey notices that Jed is soaked: "You've sweat right through your clothes." She asks Curtis to help Jed out of the chair, when Jed weakly tells her that he needs a minute. Abbey calls to Millie, and the two of them start loosening Jed's tie and collar.
In the main cabin, C.J. is on a phone filling Leo in on the details of the upcoming multilateral North Korea summit. She's laughing and talking about how great Jed was when she sees what look to be flight officers (and perhaps the unseen flight doctor?) walking into the Flying O. She tells Leo that she'll need to call him back. As she and Toby look down the hallway and into the office, they see medical personnel hovering over Jed. Abbey walks to the door of the office and closes it.
Josh walks up a walkway of a house in what the subtitle tells us is Houston, Texas. What, no street address? Or maybe the relative humidity? Josh knocks on a door. Through a window, we can see a Happy Holiday Family Scene (trademark, the Hallmark Corporation). From inside the house, we see Matt Santos walk to the door. He sure has a lot of kids. Because, you know, he's Hispanic. He's totally dumsquizzled to see Josh at the door: "Wow. Hi. You lost?" Josh: "Could be. Could be." Santos invites him in, and Josh apologizes for disturbing him at home: "I'm on a bit of a deadline. It's a filing deadline." Santos tells Josh that he's not running for Congress again. Josh: "I'm not talking about Congress." Josh and Santos stare into each other's eyes as Mrs. Santos asks her husband if he knows where the tinsel is. I'm sorry, Mrs. Santos, but I think your husband knows exactly where the tinsel is now, if you know what I mean. Fade to black.
