Toby asks if they can talk for a second and leads Andi off the little platform they're on. She grabs a cracker or hors d'oeuvre or something as they go. Toby says she won with 85\% of the vote. Andi says she doesn't really understand the 15\%, but what the hell. Eighty-five percent? Wow. Hey, I love Andi, but who was she running against: a jive-talking robot? ["If there were more jive-talking robots, I might start watching again." -- Wing Chun] Toby: "As long as you scraped by with a win. Look, a...a statement." Andi says they've already been through this. Toby reminds her that Roll Call has the news of Andi's pregnancy, and that Toby and Andi have to deal with it. Andi says she doesn't. She starts to wander away. He says, "'Congresswoman Wyatt, are you pregnant?'" Andi: "'None of your business.'" She should say "none of your beeswax" because that's much more effective. Toby says she can't withhold that from her constituents. Andi: "That reminds me, did you hear the rumour that the President has multiple sclerosis and never told anyone?" Toby: "Yeah, did you hear the rumour that there was a Congressional investigation and it almost detonated his Presidency?" Andi can't believe Toby's worried about her: "I just won by 85\%." Toby says he's not worried about her. She knows: he's worried about how it looks to have a senior counsellor fathering children out of wedlock. Toby: "Yeah, you know what? Single moms are a lot more sympathetic than deadbeat dads, so I wouldn't gallivant." Andi smiles, puts her hand up to Toby's cheek, and says, "You're not a deadbeat dad." She lets her hand rest on his shoulder; he reaches up and rests his hand on her upper arm. Toby: "I know that, and you know that, but if I can't protect my kids, their mom, and the President all at the same time, then I've gotta quit my job, so can you help me out?" Andi: "Yes." Toby: "You'll make a statement?" Andi: "No, but when they ask me who the father is, I won't tell them that, either." She wanders away again. Toby: "I'm the father!" Andi: "And of course, you're at your leisure to tell them that." Toby looks around quickly and asks, "Eighty-five percent of what kind of backward population votes for this woman?" Andi: "The good people of Maryland." She turns to the crowd and calls out, "Maryland!" They all raise their glasses and echo her. She smiles and flounces off. Toby drinks.
