At Zoey's campus, Zoey and three other students are sitting in a cafeteria practicing their French. ["It's a lot better than the French that A.J. and his mom were practicing a few weeks back on Dawson's Creek." -- Wing Chun] Off to one side, Gina confers with another agent who informs her that there are some reporters out front. Gina decides to take Zoey out the back. Zoey wants to know why they can't go out the front; when Gina explains, Zoey objects that reporters aren't supposed to be allowed on campus. Gina says security is on its way, but in the meantime she leads Zoey and one of her girlfriends toward the kitchen exit. Zoey and her friend are giggling and gossiping and chattering on in French; as they enter the kitchen, a guy pops out at them pointing a tape recorder, which just seems like a really bad idea. Gina takes a split-second to push him up against the refrigerator. She identifies herself and asks him who he is; he says he's Edgar Drumm from The Charleston Citizen and that he has a question for Miss Bartlet. Bully for you, bub. Step off. Zoey and her friend are standing silently a few feet away with another agent. Why he doesn't hustle the two of them off, I have no idea. Gina tells the other agent to take Zoey to the car, and they do finally start to walk away, but Drumm provokes Zoey with a question about her "partying with drug dealers." Zoey turns around and says softly, "What the hell?" Zoey's friend, who looks familiar (I think she was recently on That 70s Show) says that David Arbour isn't a drug dealer. Drumm asks Zoey why she went to the party and she says that she was invited, and that she didn't even know David Arbour was going to be there. As Zoey and her friend march off, the friend tells Drumm he's a "real jackass." Gina warns Drumm not to ever do that again, and he cracks, "I have to say, if this is how the Secret Service behaves during the Bartlet administration, it's a sad state of affairs." Gina replies, "We're all going to have to learn to live with your disappointment."
