Josh asks C.J. why she wanted to see him, and she tells him that Ainsley approached C.J. about being appointed White House Counsel. I guess she just spent six years as Deputy White House Counsel, so maybe she's qualified. But I really don't think so. They chat about it, and Josh agrees to get Ainsley a meeting with Santos. Josh asks whether C.J.'s coming up to the Residence, and she responds, "I was just thinking about Leo, sitting over there in that chair." We get a close-up of the chair. It has a seat, and legs. C.J. continues, "Weird, isn't it? How people are here one minute, and then they're not."
Up in the Residence, Jed is regaling a small group with more stories about Leo. Will, Charlie, and Annabeth are there, and Josh, C.J., and Donna arrive within seconds. Jed's telling a story from the first campaign, about him and Leo fighting over whether Jed could wear a parka in front of the press, with said fight ending up with Jed falling ass over teakettle in front of said press. Jed places Josh squarely in the middle of the story, but Josh denies being there. Jed tells him to shut up and accept his reality. Everyone gets into a little chatter about Leo being a clotheshorse. And then we learn that Leo used to tell people more and more outrageous lies about his past, waiting to see when they would stop believing him. People talk about the stories he told of being a train conductor, or playing Davis Cup tennis, or being a chess hustler, or playing minor league baseball. C.J. tells them, "My favorite was how he almost made the Olympic luge team in 1962." Annabeth: "He didn't make the luge team in 1962?" C.J. tells Annabeth that she bought some of the stories herself at first. Josh calls C.J. on her gullibility. Will tells Josh that he bought the line about Leo being a dance instructor. Jed interjects, "No, no. That one was true. He taught me to foxtrot." C.J. asks, "Really?" and Jed gives her a look. They all laugh at how she got taken in again.
OEOB. Otto admits Fields to Santos's office. Fields tells Santos that Sellner is working twice as hard to get votes, and hints that maybe he's doing it because he thinks Santos is going to go to bat for Fields. Santos tells him that Sellner probably doesn't think that, because it's not true. Fields thinks Santos must have convinced Sellner to back lobbying reform, but Santos disabuses him of that notion. And now Fields gets angry, thinking that he's being sold down the river without Santos getting anything in return. Santos points out the real reason he can't help Fields, which is that the Democrats in the House won't have any credibility if everyone thinks they're just Santos's puppets. Fields leaves, but not before calling Santos a snake. Or a dog. Or something insulting.
