Danny pushes both of their now-empty plates to the side. She asks him if he's going to do a magic trick. He tells her that he has no idea if what he's about to say will come out right, and she reassures him that she'll forgive any mistakes he makes. He tells her, "Incrementalism is not an option. I'm forced into a heroic posture." She reassures him again that things will be fine. Nervously, he starts what sounds like a pre-planned speech: "We're both about to fall off a cliff. And I don't know what I'm going to do with the rest of my life, except I know what I don't want to do. And on Inauguration Day, you're going to be released from that glorious prison on Pennsylvania Avenue with…" C.J.: "No human skills?" He thinks that sounds right. He continues, "So, if I'm gonna jump off the cliff, and you're gonna get pushed off the cliff, why don't we hold hands on the way down?" Thud. Oh, sorry, I just swooned again. There's a long pause, and suddenly C.J.'s beeper goes off. Danny, frantic, tells her, "Oh, turn it off." She can't, of course, and when she looks at it, she solemnly says, "Oh my God." She has to go, and immediately stands up and starts heading for the door. He tells her to go, and after she's gone, he looks at her empty chair and says, "I'll see you later." He quietly repeats himself, seeming near tears.
C.J. walks into the West Wing. There are a lot of generals and other important-looking people standing around. C.J. finds Kate and asks what's going on. Kate tells her, "Some kind of nuclear accident." It happened at a power plant. C.J. asks if it's a plant in Russia, and Kate responds, "San Andreo, California. They think it might blow up." Credits.
