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."
Toby is wandering through the hallway when Margaret catches up with him and says, "Hey, Toby." Her hair is looking a little strange in this episode; it's pulled back, and I think she might be growing out her bangs. I like her hair better with bangs. Toby says, "Hey there, Margaret." Margaret is slightly taken aback and asks Toby if he's okay. Toby: "Yeah. Why wouldn't I be okay?" Margaret explains, "You don't usually say, 'Hey there, Margaret.'" Toby's pretty jovial and asks, "What do I usually say?" Margaret: "You usually growl something inaudible." Toby says, "Not today. You, on the other hand, should turn that frown upside-down." Margaret says, "I'm sorry?" Toby continues: "Let a smile be your umbrella, Margaret." She stops dead and says, "'Kay, now you're scaring the crap out of me, Toby." He keeps walking and singing some lyrics from "Put On A Happy Face" as he breezes down the hallway, brightly greeting people who seem stunned to be acknowledged by Toby at all.
