Charlie comes into the Oval Office to tell POTUS that Mr. Cravenly, the Director of Special Collections at the New Hampshire Historical Society, just phoned to say that POTUS can't use the Bartlet Bible because it needs to be in a climate-controlled vault or it warps. Bartlet: "Just as the Disciples intended." Charlie says that Mr. Cravenly suggested the Jefferson Bible. Jed wonders if that one doesn't warp. Charlie: "I think it does, and being from New Hampshire, he just doesn't care." Jed: "Probably. Speaking of New Hampshire, don't I own the Bartlet Bible?" Charlie says that it was sold at auction. Jed knows; he bought it. Charlie says he donated it to the New Hampshire Historical Society. Jed: "And they won't loan it back to me so I can be inaugurated?" Charlie says that Mr. Cravenly felt very bad about that. Jed wonders if Charlie's not making up Mr. Cravenly's name. Charlie's not making it up. Jed: "Would you tell him that I'd like very much to use my family's Bible, which my family has bought at least twice now?" Charlie will. Jed mentions that a couple hundred people got killed today in Kundu. Charlie knows. Jed starts to tell him about the Arkutu, but Charlie knows. He asks if the Americans got out; Jed says they did. As Charlie leaves, Jed asks him to get Bob Slattery to come to his office.
C.J.'s briefing the press, in minute and obvious detail, about the swearing-in of the President. The reporters are taking the piss out of her for it, too. Katie gets to be in on it. See, Katie could carry her own storyline. I just know it. You keep fighting there, Spunky Reporter Gal. Someday Aaron Sorkin will notice your cornfed good looks and your sunny disposition.
As C.J. enters the hallway, Carol tags along to tell her Danny wanted to see her for a second. Unbeknownst to C.J., Danny's right behind them. C.J. refuses. Carol starts to object and C.J. tells her, "Stop trying to get us together, okay? If I wanted Danny I could have him. And he's still a jackass from the foreign-ops vote and many other things, so tell him I'm getting my hair done." Danny: "Your hair looks great." It is much improved in this scene. C.J. stops and tells Carol, "There was no way you could tell me he was right behind me? You couldn't fit that in?" She tells Danny to come in her office and Carol takes off with a brief apology.
