As everyone leaves, Jed asks Leo when he meets with Berryhill. It's at 2:00 PM. Jed says he doesn't want to rush his lunch with Zoey. Leo asks how she's doing. Jed says she's doing well, considering. Charlie sticks his head in to say "they" (Abby and Zoey, I guess) are on their way down. Jed asks Leo what the deal is with the bomb scare. Leo explains that Immigration has been encouraging more neighbourhood swearing-in ceremonies: "Most of this group being sworn in are from Arab countries." A glimpse of a coat flip, there. Jed: "We're talking folks who have been interviewed and background-checked by two agencies, taken classes to learn our language, passed exams on our history and government, and been fingerprinted twice?" Why, yes, yes we are. "These are the kinds of Arabs we're talking about?" You hadda go and ruin it. "The kinds of Arabs"? What, are there just the two kinds -- the ones who are "happy" to clean American buildings and drive American taxis and the ones who want to blow them up? Jed tells Leo to find them an auditorium where they can safely take their oath.
Although the sun appears to be shining brightly outside, when Jed walks out of the Oval Office, it's so dark you can only tell that it's Debbie and Charlie there by their voices. I don't think any amount of jibing or pleading is going to get some light on this show. I'd wave a white flag -- but who'd see it? Jed's got a lot of paperwork to sign; he wonders why the autopen was not employed during his hiatus. Why didn't they put Walken to work? Debbie says that it raised some constitutional issues they couldn't parse. Debbie asks Jed to approve a photo from the archives showing Zoey on a horse with Jed and Abby standing on either side. Debbie says that C.J. thinks most media outlets will go with the fireworks shot, but this one is "nice" and "sweet." Charlie: "No, it's not. They were laughing at me." Jed wonders if that was Charlie's first time up at the farm: "It was, wasn't it?" Charlie: "Yeah, I got on and I stayed on." Jed, indifferently: "You were a natural horseman, Charlie." In the background, Debbie answers the phone: "Fidererererer." She hangs up and tells Jed, "She's ready."
