Zoey's being interviewed. This whole interview storyline is actually pretty boring and pointless. It doesn't tell us much more about the kidnapping, or Zoey, and surely there must be some other way to dramatize Abby's estrangement from Jed. Zoey uses C.J.'s little "the help's helped" line. Whatever. Diane asks Zoey about what happened at the club with Tartuffe and the Ecstasy: "Now, he says...." Zoey says she knows what he says. Diane: "You sound angry." Except Zoey sounds about as angry as someone who's dropped a cornflake in her lap during breakfast. Zoey says, "I am angry. The only thing I can do, the only thing any of us can do, is tell the truth about what happened to us, and try to find a way to live with the shame...and self-doubt that comes from having trusted someone who then betrayed you." Is that a little shot at Abby? Diane asks if she has anything she would like to say to Jean Paul. Zoey: "Oh, no." Oh, please. You've got nothing to say to that little fuckwad? Abby can't take anymore and she leaves quietly. C.J. follows her. Abby asks, "How much longer?" C.J. says Diane will be wrapping up soon: "That was her big gun." Abby: "Thank you. She did well. You did an excellent job." C.J.: "You, too." Abby says that Zoey needed time up in New Hampshire. C.J.: "I meant, you've raised a remarkable young woman." Abby dismisses this: "Oh, she was always Jed's little girl." C.J.: "Mrs. Bartlet...may I say...we miss you...." Abby: "That's very kind. Please don't be offended if I say I don't miss you." C.J. laughs. Abby smiles a bit. C.J. talks about how busy things have been in the White House. Abby: "We get newspapers up here, C.J. You don't have to apologize for him not coming. I asked him not to." I wonder if she's retained the divorce lawyer yet.
