Josh finishes his run by sliding down the hallway just outside the briefing room. Carol is leading Toby out of the briefing room and telling him that he won't have to brief anymore: "You're better with the written material. We can flood 'em with press releases." As Carol walks away, Josh casually walks up to Toby: "How'd it go?" Toby: "Fine." Josh: "I missed it." Josh tells Toby that he's thinking about the substance-abuse initiative, and he wonders if they shouldn't just "send C.J. to Compton, have her swat at drug lords with her purse." By this time, they've arrived at Margaret's desk. Toby blames his gaffe on the press, accusing them of ambushing him. Will walks up and asks them how things are going. He tells them that he received a call from someone at the Policy Institute who wondered if either Toby or Josh were interested in a new position. Apparently, they've both started receiving calls from headhunters. In response to Will's question about how C.J. is doing, Josh says that she's a pro. Will: "Like a ninja with a Prada clutch." See, Deborah Cahn can even write jokes for Will that make sense. Margaret tells them that C.J. is ready, and they all file into her office.
C.J.'s office. She is standing behind her desk as Josh, Toby, and Will file in. She calls them "men of valor." Quick, call the Secret Service -- someone has slipped C.J. some drugs. Toby starts to apologize, and she tells him that she'd like to move past it. But he keeps going, and she eventually has to tell him to shut up. Margaret comes in, and in response to Josh's question, tells them all that Leo is awake and cranky. She asks C.J. if she's started the senior staff meeting, and C.J. tells her that apparently she has. (Which I think Margaret should know, because she just told the senior staff that C.J. was ready for them.) Josh and Toby take seats in front of C.J.'s desk. Margaret points out that Leo normally likes to glance over the top sheet of the intel reports and circle items about which he has questions so that he can get information before the afternoon briefing. Josh tells her to go ahead: "We can wait." C.J. sits down at the table in the front of the office (against the wall farthest from her desk), and starts circling items on the page. At the end, she just draws a big circle around the entire list. Margaret tells her that they'll set aside some extra time. As Josh and Toby look on (with Will nowhere in sight, although I know he's in the room), Margaret tells C.J. that Leo also likes to order his lunch before the senior staff meeting: "Leo likes a roast turkey sandwich." C.J.: "That's fine." Margaret stands there expectantly, and then asks, "Mayo?" C.J.: "Please tell me we can discuss this later."
