Margaret is leading Ainsley...somewhere. Ainsley spots C.J. on the lifecycle and stops dead. Margaret turns back, and Ainsley asks if she could have a moment. She steps into C.J.'s office and says, "I was going to see Leo McGarry. He asked me to come back and see him at the end of the day." She introduces herself, and C.J. says it's nice to meet her. Ainsley says, "I'm not taking the job, C.J." C.J., understandably, has no real response to that news. Ainsley starts to leave, then stops and says, "Rule 6(e) of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure says you can be prosecuted for even confirming that a grand jury's been impaneled." C.J. asks how Ainsley knows about it, and Ainsley explains that she talked to Bill. Ainsley asks who told C.J. about the grand jury, and C.J. says, "One of the witnesses who was called. What could happen?" Ainsley quietly answers, "Eighteen months, medium security." C.J. stops pedaling. Ainsley smiles and says that she's kidding: "You didn't break the law. Attorneys and jurors are under a gag order. Witnesses are free to say whatever they want, and anyone is free to repeat what they've said." C.J. sighs with relief. Ainsley continues, "I'm not sure that laying low and hoping nobody noticed was the best strategy here. Next time, you should really run it by someone in the Counsel's Office." With that, she leaves.
Nimbala is watching the rain. Toby enters and says to him, "I'm gonna put a deal together, and I want you to agree to it." Nimbala asks what the deal is. Toby says that he'll get the companies to lower their prices, "but you have to commit your military, your customs bureau, and your Ministry of Health; you have to commit them to stopping the influx of black market HIV drugs from Korea and Pakistan, and from wherever else they're coming." Through his translator, Nimbala says, "Thirty-five percent of our adult population is infected. Sixty percent of our hospital beds are occupied by people who are HIV-positive. Our Institute of Policy Analysis says [that] in the coming decade, 50% of all households in our country will have at least one member infected with HIV. To think I would care about International Patent Law at a time like this is unrealistic." Josh explains that if they don't honor the patent regulations, their country will be on a watch list, which is the first step toward trade sanctions. Toby, the good cop, says that if Nimbala plays ball, they can get Congress to forgive the debt on loans to the Republic of Equatorial Kuhndu. He adds, "We believe the Import-Export Bank will offer a billion dollars in loans to finance the purchase of American AIDS medication." Nimbala says that Congress wouldn't approve such a loan. Josh says that Congress won't have to: "If we spread the loans out over several countries in your region on a case-by-case basis, and if none of the loans exceed $100 million, we don't need Congressional approval." After a moment, Josh adds, "That law might change soon." Way to undercut your argument there. Nimbala thinks about this and finally says (in English), "It's a terrible thing to beg for your life. Terrible." He says, "My father was a proud man. He built homes. He wouldn't like what I came here to do." Toby replies, "Yes he would, Mr. President. I swear to God, he would." Nimbala thanks Toby, and Toby gets up to tell Leo that they've reached an agreement.
