It's at this point that Deborah Cahn gives some crack to the NBC promo monkeys. Toby stands up and tells her that six years is a long time, and that he thinks it's time he moved on. He pulls a letter of resignation out of his suit pocket. C.J. looks stunned, and Will is standing there with his mouth open so wide that my grandmother would have told him, "Close your mouth before a bug flies in." Josh tells C.J. that he doesn't want to pile on, but that he doesn't think he will really be able to work for one of his closest friends. He pulls out his own letter of resignation. Just then Jed walks in: "I don't know if I'm comfortable working this closely with a woman. I think it's time for me to call it a day, give the VP a chance to steer the ship." It takes Toby about one second to start laughing, and Josh is not far behind him. Jed tells Toby that he's weak: "You should have held it, seen if she pulled out the continuity of government plan." Toby tells them that he had a whole speech about spending more time with his kids, but he just couldn't make it. Wait, you mean Toby has kids? You wouldn't know it from any recent episodes. Will says, "On behalf of the Vice-President, and myself, and every man who's ever had a Wonder Woman fantasy, it's a bright day." There has got to be some kind of storyline coming that will explain the crap that comes out of Will's mouth. Like, maybe he has a brain tumor? Or maybe his mother took too much LSD when she was pregnant? Or maybe the real Will was replaced with a duplicate spy from some country that is completely humor-deprived? I'm just asking for something so I can stop questioning my faith in a merciful God. Because there's no way God would create someone who would say the things Will says for no reason. As everyone leaves, C.J. asks Margaret if they are behind. Margaret: "Very."
Toby and Josh walk down the hall. Carol walks up to them, and Toby asks for a list of potential Press Secretary candidates: "Pull some résumés." Carol hands him a thick file, telling him, "This is the list, these are the résumés." Josh seems awed by her efficiency, but she tells him that it's just C.J.'s "in case I get hit by a bus" file. She tells Toby that he has appointments today with the obvious top choices, and then she is called away. Josh offers to help Toby and takes half of the file, but just then Donna wheels up in her snazzy new electric wheelchair a and tells him that Speaker Haffley is in his office. Josh runs off, but then runs back and puts his half of the file in Donna's lap, telling Toby that Donna will help him with the search. As Josh runs away, Donna looks at Toby and says, "Nice briefing."
