Leo comes out of the meeting, followed by Josh and Toby. Leo barks to Will to meet in the Oval Office and to grab C.J. Josh complains that the idiot thinks he tagged them. Toby: "He did."
In the Oval Office, Jed looks at the list as everyone bitches and complains about it. Josh says that Haffley's an idiot, that he's bluffing, and that they're going to destroy him. C.J.'s worried about their numbers falling as the selection process drags on. Toby rants about the list: "It's a joke. August Adair will bore the country into a stupor, and Starkey is -- forgive me, sir -- more likely to keel over in the next three years than you are." Will says that Diane Frost is a serious name. Josh: "Diane is a serious loon of the left." And the Republican leadership put her on the list? Toby: "I love Diane Frost. I'd marry Diane Frost if I were a member of her stated sexual...preference, but Diane is the definition of unelectable." Josh, still pacing around: "That's their agenda: sniper anyone who looks hard to beat next time out." C.J. says she thought this choice wasn't about partisan politics. Josh: "It is now!" Jed's had enough: "Come on, guys, the door is closed. This has always been about partisan politics. One reason we were dancing on the tables this morning is that Berryhill looks good to take over in three years." Toby says that Berryhill also looks good right now. Will asks who Robert Russell is. Josh says he's the Congressman from Western Colorado: "And I don't mean the state, I mean the mining company." Toby says that Russell is not Presidential. Josh wonders if they're actually discussing the list. C.J.: "We're dissing the list. Wasn't Russell...is he 'Bingo Bob'?" Toby says he is. Josh suggests not even dissing the list. POTUS tells them to listen up: they're sticking with Berryhill, and he wants to announce it tomorrow. Leo says they should check with their friends: "See if they've got our back." Toby asks, "What about the list?" Leo says that Toby and Josh should chat with the people on the list. Josh is pissed: "You want to placate Haffley?" Leo: "I want to try. If he thinks he's getting to advise, maybe he'll consent." Leo suggests that POTUS say hello to Haffley's candidates, too. Jed says that that's about all they're going to get. Leo tells Josh to haul ass on this. As they're all leaving, Jed asks Toby, "When's the bris?" Toby says it was this morning. C.J. seems dismayed: "This morning? You dog!" Toby says they've been a little busy. She says she'll get him later. Jed: "Nice service?" Toby: "For me. I'm not sure Huck enjoyed it as much." Jed: "Quite a way to start the morning." Yeah, get your foreskin cut off first thing and probably nothing worse will happen to you all day. Jed adds, "And, it's just the beginning." Toby just smiles.
