Everyone leaves except Will and Donna. She noshes on someone else's leftover French fries while they discuss her trip. She wants to know if they're really going to call Russell's big donors "Bob's Boulders." I'm sorry, but "Bob's Boulders" sounds like a joke that Russell should make about his breasts when he appears in drag at some political variety show. Will doesn't care what they call them, and then tells Donna that half a million is a pretty good result "for two days of rolling with the Boulders."
Donna walks down the hall and enters an elevator. There's an intense close-up of her finger pushing the button for the fourth floor. The elevator door slowly closes, and as it's almost closed we hear a voice calling out for her to hold the elevator. Hmmm, that voice sounds familiar. You don't think that two major characters on the show would have a chance meeting in the middle of Iowa, do you? I mean, what are the odds? It would have to be fate that brought them together. Or maybe contrivance. Those two can be difficult to distinguish. In any case, the mysterious stranger is able to stop the door from closing, and as the door re-opens, we can see that it's Josh. He's talking on his cell phone as he enters the elevator, and it takes him a couple of seconds to realize that he's sharing a ride with Donna. He ends the call, and she awkwardly apologizes for not being able to find the button to open the door. He asks her to push "4," and she points out that it's already been pushed. Close-up shot of the button. This is gripping cinematography. As the doors close and the elevator ascends, there's a lot of tense silence and shots of the two of them in profile. They make awkward small talk about the campaign. Russell is closing in on Hoynes in South Carolina, and Santos is focusing his efforts on New Hampshire.
