At the wake, C.J. walks up to Danny, who offers her a drink. She accepts, but nervously tells him, "Before you spend your time getting me liquored up, I should tell you..." Danny: "You're a virgin?" No, that's not it. He tries again: "Terminally ill?" Again, not it. C.J. tells him that she won't be able to do that thing she told him she was going to do, because she has an unexpected houseguest. Danny doesn't see the problem, since C.J.'s coming to his house would just give Donna the run of C.J.'s place. But C.J. doesn't know what she would tell Donna if she didn't sleep at her own place, and claims to be a terrible liar. While they are speaking, Donna keeps glancing over at the two of them. I think she might be on to them. C.J. tells him that the problem is not what to tell Donna, but that if she commits to going over to Danny's, she's going to obsess about it -- both what to say to Donna and what to say to herself -- all afternoon, making it impossible for her to do her job: "We've put this off for seven years. This'll keep another night." Or until the inauguration. Donna walks up to them, and Danny sarcastically tells her, "Good to see ya."
Santos and Josh enter the room, and Jed loudly proclaims, "All hail the conquering heroes!" He leads a round of applause. Jed shakes Santos's hand and congratulates him. Santos leans in, and tells Jed, "I am so sorry for your loss, sir." Jed deflects his own pain, responding, "It's a loss for the entire country." But that doesn't make it any less of a loss for his best friend. Jed's voice nearly breaks as he asks where Helen is. Apparently, she went back to Houston to be with the kids. Jed tells him, "Lots of changes coming into your lives." Although I'm hoping that Santos won't have to worry about his personal body man sleeping with his daughter.
