They reach a little détente, and he asks her what she's working on. It's the usual: "I'm trying to keep China and Russia from annihilating the northern hemisphere over oil in Kazakhstan." Danny's current work isn't so impressive -- he's covering a couple of House races. He asks if C.J.'s heard anything about Doug Westin. It turns out that he's within striking distance of winning the election in New Hampshire, and has asked Jed to campaign with him. C.J. asks why Danny's so curious, and it turns out that he's met Doug and found him fairly unimpressive. C.J.: "Are you implying that success in politics isn't a question of inherent value?" C.J. suggests that they actually proceed to the dinner portion of the evening, and she turns to the menu, proclaiming, "Fish is a stupid thing to get in a restaurant." Danny's response to this is not quite as cryptic: "I think he may be bangin' the nanny." C.J., shocked, asks him to repeat himself, and then asks, "Is that a euphemism?" He says it's not, and then allows that "banging" probably is a euphemism. He tells her that the rumor about Doug and the nanny is flying around quite a bit in New Hampshire, and it's likely to hit the press before too long. C.J., still looking shocked, tells him that she has to go. Danny, the foolish boy, seems completely shocked that this gossip would send her flying off to work. He tells her that she's hungry and has to eat, and she responds, "Get the steak. Tell me how it was." As she's walking away, he calls out, "Can I see you again?" She tells him he can, and when he asks when, she responds, "As soon as we're out of office." Credits.
