Josh runs into Toby and Sam in the hallway, and tells them about his nominees. Or potential nominees. Toby tells Josh, "It's our turn with the boys," and Josh continues on his way as Sam and Toby enter the meeting room. A large number of men in uniform, and some men in suits, take their seats as Toby and Sam sit down at the table. Toby explains, "We feel a little hamstrung because of the policy inherited regarding gays and lesbians in the military, and we'd like as much informed input as possible before making recommendations to the President." A major asks what consequence their recommendation will have. Sam says, "Bearing in mind that the President seldom, if ever, listens to my recommendations, I would imagine the consequences to be little." Then he adds, "If the Commander-in-Chief orders that gays can serve openly in the military, that's the way it's gonna be, and anybody who chooses to disobey that order can stand court-martial under the Uniform Code of Military Justice." Unnamed Major #2 opines, "It takes an act of Congress to amend the Uniform Code, and the Uniform Code makes sodomy a crime." Toby smiles grimly and says, "I guess it's gonna be a pretty short meeting."
Donna gives C.J. some facts about the egg roll, which is an Easter event at the White House and not a tasty Chinese appetizer, and mentions that Mandy is in C.J.'s office. C.J. goes to her office, confirms Mandy's presence, and closes the door. Mandy hands C.J. a manila envelope containing the memo. C.J. asks who else has it, but Mandy doesn't know. C.J. says she'll read it now, and tells Mandy, "Go back to your office and don't answer any questions." ["Mandy has an actual office? We've never seen it." - deborah] Nervously, Mandy asks, "You'll call me when you're done reading?" C.J. looks up and says, "I'd count on it." Mandy exits, perhaps stopping on the way to her office to pick up some empty boxes so that she can start packing.
