As C.J. enters her office, there's a knock at the door. It's Danny, who certainly cleans up well. She's a bit distracted as he enters, not really looking him in the face. Danny apologizes for being early for "the thing," and asks what time it starts. C.J. tells him that it will start at 4:00, and that he's about three hours early. And whatever, with the wandering around in the West Wing without an appointment. Danny's magic. There's a bit of chat about the funeral, and then Danny tells her, "The Majority Leader had his fly down." C.J. seems incredulous, and Danny continues, "I was gonna tell him, except I never really liked him, so I decided it was okay." C.J. apologizes for not seeing Danny at the funeral, and then tells him, "Everyone keeps thinking I have something to say, and I don't seem to be coming up with anything." He's appropriately supportive, as a good boyfriend should be. Danny tells C.J. that he really came early because he wanted to talk. She loses her distracted air and focuses in on him like a laser, telling him that she also wants to talk. They simultaneously step to different doors and close them, with C.J. shooing Margaret away as she does so. Closing the doors kind of placed them in opposite corners of the room, and they face off like gunfighters. Danny tells C.J. to go ahead, and she asks, "Me first? Why do I have to go first?" He hems and haws, and avoids the real reason, which is that he's a coward. So she sucks it up, and begins a little speech: "You know, when I came over Wednesday night, and it was late, and we didn't really talk, we just..." She gradually steps closer to him as she gives this speech. Danny allows as to how he might remember the night in question. She asks, "Did that make you feel bad?" I hope not, since I've heard from a reliable source that C.J. is great in bed. Danny also wonders how he could possibly feel bad about getting with a hottie like Claudia Jean. She thinks he might have felt "used." Danny seems to think he'll get over it. C.J. continues, "I know we have a lot to talk about, and I don't want to leapfrog any of it, but it was kind of wonderful to just..." Again, with the three little dots that conceal everything we want to know. Or at least, everything that I want to know. Because I'm pervy like that. They both smile and laugh, and it's truly heavenly. And then Danny asks C.J., "You wanna do it again tonight, don't ya?" C.J. really, really does. He tells her that he'll leave the door open.
