A bit later C.J.'s in her office with her back to the door, still humming the song and shaking her booty, when Danny shows up and leers for a bit before announcing his presence. He's sad that he missed "The Jackal" and congratulates her on the Mendoza confirmation. Danny announces that he was at home listening to his police scanner. This guy knows how to live. C.J. interrupts to accuse him of having been president of his high school AV club; Danny explains that he was not president but vice-president and he doesn't like to talk about it. After some more blather it turns out that he's there to tell her that somebody named David Arbour was arrested outside a frat party, and will be charged with felony possession with possible intent to distribute. C.J. is alarmed: "Is there any chance that David Arbour is not the son of Bob Arbour?" Danny indicates that there is absolutely no chance of that. C.J. says that at least she knows what she'll be doing when she comes into work the next day, and starts taking off her coat and scarf. Danny takes the opportunity to remind her that she should remember that he came down to her office at one o'clock in the morning to tell her about this when he really didn't have to and also that she's secretly in love with him. C.J. tells him to remind her office. Danny suggests that she could do "The Jackal" for him right at that moment but she throws his scarf over his shoulder nicely and tells him to go home. Danny obediently trots off as she gets on the horn. Is it still this cold in Washington in April? ["Yup, yesterday it was in the forties. Today's high will be in the seventies. The entire region is manic-depressive." -- Strega]
After many messages from our sponsors, it's the next morning. C.J. and Carol are talking. C.J. is coaching Carol on what to say to media inquiries about the frat party bust. Carol seems to get it and C.J. is satisfied. Just then Mandy appears and calls out to C.J. as C.J. slips into her office. C.J. calls back, "It's a non-story," and Mandy replies, "Let's keep it that way." She then saunters into Josh's office and asks if he got her message. He's still wondering if she didn't want to speak to him about banana bars, but Mandy confirms that it's about panda bears. "I think we should get a panda bear." Josh replies, "You say that now, but I'm the one who's going to end up feeding him and walking him." Cute. Mandy explains that in the last ten days the White House has gotten more than three thousand letters wanting to know when there will be a new panda for the National Zoo. Apparently the old bear (Lum-Lum) died two weeks earlier. Josh: "Did I kill her?" Mandy: "No." Josh: "Then what are you talking to me for?" Mandy persists in bugging Josh until he tells her that it's Toby she should be talking to about getting a new bear. No doubt Toby will thank Josh. Donna comes in with an armful of files; Mandy asks what all the stuff is for. Josh says, "I have to tell a black civil-rights lawyer why I don't owe him any money." Mandy wishes him luck.
