Oval Office. Jed is on the phone with the Israeli Prime Minister, and Kate and Ambassador Nechayev are in the office. Jed is telling the PM that the Palestinians have Nassam in custody and are prepared to turn him over to the U.S., but the PM points out that Nassam has made and broken other promises in the past. Jed claims that Farad is demonstrating good faith and a willingness to address the peace process. Speakerphone close-up! The PM is silent. Jed tells him that the occupation of the West Bank is undermining Israel's legitimacy. Oooh, speakerphone close-up from behind. Such daring directorial decisions. We cut to yet another shot of the speakerphone as the PM tells Jed that Farad is not truly willing to give up his claim to all of historic Palestine. In response to Jed's claim that Israel cannot go on oppressing other peoples, the PM points out that Israel's Arab citizens enjoy greater political and social freedom than in any other country in the Middle East. Kate jumps in at this point to note that Farad knows that the security fence is nearly complete. Jed promises the PM that if both parties attend a summit and Farad rejects an agreement, the U.S. will support Israel's actions to defend itself, including the construction of the security fence. After a moment of silence, Jed gets personal: "Eli, why not sit down and talk again?" The PM agrees that he will raise the offer with his cabinet after Nassam has been turned over to the U.S. With a super-close-up shot of the hold button, Jed hangs up the phone. Ambassador Nechayev leaves, and Jed whispers to Kate, "I think we got ourselves a ballgame."
Helicopter alert! Hit the deck! Toby and Kate are walking out to Marine One. He asks her if she's been to NSF Thurmont (the official name of Camp David) before, and she says no. He asks her if she's flown in Marine One before, and she says no. He asks her if she likes helicopters, and she says, "No, not really. I get a little airsick." Toby: "In that case, you're sitting with Will." And that make sense, because Will is the chief resident, so he can provide her with some medical care if she becomes ill. Toby is so considerate. Jed is talking to Leo, telling him to stay behind and keep an eye on things. Jed: "You still think this is a mistake." Leo: "Yes sir, I do." Jed tells him that when the Palestinian delegation has landed at Andrews, Leo can give General Locke the go to hit the camp in Syria. But he doesn't think the intelligence supports an attack on Iran. The President boards Marine One, and it takes off. I've seen the promos for next week, so I know that it won't crash on top of Leo. Yet. Commercials.
