Charlie comes to speak to C.J.. He says he heard she "burned down the place last night." C.J. says, "I can bring it." She wants to know what's up; Charlie says Zoey called. Charlie tells C.J. about her run-in with Edgar Drumm of The Charleston Citizen. C.J. tells him that Edgar Drumm isn't a reporter, he's a professional Bartlet-baiter, and that the The Charleston Citizen isn't a newspaper, it's a fund-raising newsletter for the radical right. She wants to know what he asked Zoey. Charlie tells her that he asked whether the President's daughter should be partying with drug dealers. C.J. asks if Zoey talked to him; Charlie only says that Gina put Zoey in the car. He tells C.J. that the thing Zoey wanted him to talk to her about is that David Arbour is a good friend of hers, and that he's not a drug dealer, and wondered if C.J. could nip that story in the bud. ["Except I think he said 'nip it in the butt,' which was just adorable." -- Wing Chun] C.J. says she could talk to a couple of people. Charlie further explains that the guy uses drugs, but doesn't deal, and that Zoey and her friends are trying to help him. Zoey was planning to give David back the car keys she had confiscated from him a week earlier. C.J. calls Carol in as Charlie mentions that David drives a Porsche. C.J. tells Carol to alert Danny that she's coming to see him. She then mentions to Charlie that she drove her boyfriend's Porsche once and backed it into a pond. Charlie says, "Lost your driving privileges?" C.J. responds, "And the boyfriend." As Charlie leaves, he remarks, "It's a good car, though." C.J. says, "Yeah."
