C.J. emerges from the Mural Room (I think) and runs into Charlie. He tells her that Margaret called -- the committee had more questions for her, so she's still testifying. Charlie offers to get C.J. some coffee, but she just wants thirty minutes for a nap. Charlie seems happy to oblige, but she stresses how much she needs some sleep: "I'm starting see weird colors, so no people, no calls." Charlie tells her that Charles Frost called again. She still doesn't know who he is. C.J. draws the blinds in the windows and tells Charlie to close the door as she settles onto the couch for a nap. Just as she gets into what I think is an incredibly uncomfortable-looking position (her head shoved face-down into a pillow and her butt stuck up in the air), there's a knock on the door and Toby enters. He asks her if she's busy, and she tells him through the pillow (but with some grump in her voice), "I'm reading." Toby starts to talk about a meeting he's going to have with Speaker Haffley on the education bill, but C.J. clearly thinks Toby can handle it on his own. And then he tells her, "And I want you to reconsider getting a lawyer." She gets up and calls for Charlie. He enters, and she tells the two of them, "Can't you see that I'm losing my mind? And if I can't sleep, I need at least ten minutes of quiet time to myself. Quiet time! My time! I'm going out to get coffee." She has thrown on her jacket and is getting her wallet out of her massively large purse. She offers to get them something. Charlie offers to get the coffee for her while she takes her nap. He asks her what she'll have. C.J.: "I want a double-shot light on the soy cinnamon chai mocha-chino, no whip, sprinkles, and another shot on top." I am really confused by that order. Chai is a blended tea drink, and a mocha-chino is presumably an espresso/chocolate drink. I'm really not sure those things go together. Of course, I come from that part of the country where there are more Dunkin' Donuts than Starbucks, so what do I know? Charlie and Toby are as confused as I am, based on the looks on their faces. C.J. stops for a second, and says, "I'll write it down."
