It's a bright and sunny Tuesday morning; Toby and Sam are arguing as they cross a tree-lined boulevard. Sam is saying that something is racist and a red herring; Toby understands. Sam says, "It's a way of looking like you're tough on crime without assuming the burden of being tough on crime." Toby still understands, but insists that they do things one at a time. Sam thinks they don't have time to only do one thing at a time. He says he's talking about treatment and mandatory minimums and says again that "it" is a red herring and racist. Toby instructs Sam, "When you speak to the President, I want you talking about treatment. I want you talking about treatment versus enforcement and I don't want you to stray from that." Sam asks, "Toby, is this what you meant when you said. 'Sam, you're completely in charge of this?'" Toby replies, "Yes, I meant you're completely in charge of this, in the sense that you are subordinate to me in every way!" He suddenly stops and asks where "this place" is; Sam asks, "What place?" Toby's looking for the "breakfast place," which Sam indicates is on the last street they were on. Toby wants to know why Sam didn't say anything. Sam says, "We were having a nice conversation." Toby looks mildly annoyed and takes off in the opposite direction.
Leo is seated at a table on a lovely outdoor patio; Margaret is standing up fussing with her #2 pencils. I suddenly feel a strong desire to fix her up with NYPD Blue's Danny Sorenson, who has quite an intense fixation on office supplies himself. She's wearing this Laura Petrie flip with a wide headband. I can't quite decide if she's hip enough to pull off this cute retro style or if it's just weird on her.
