Mandy shows up just as Toby is arriving. She asks if he has a moment and Toby says, "Madeleine. You are charming and you are brilliant and for you I have all the time in the world." Now you're scaring the crap out of me, Toby. Were those cigars you were smoking last night, or crack? Even Mandy is puzzled and asks the support staff what's with Toby. Ginger says, "It's the day after his day of jubilee." Bonnie adds, "He never sustains a good mood this long." Toby pauses at his door and says, "Bonnie, you are dedicated and you are beautiful. And Ginger, you are other nice things." Mandy shoves him into his office. Toby says he feels like he's lost one hundred and eighty pounds, and he's smiling, and laughing, and enjoying the people he works with, and he's gotta snap out of it. He plops into his chair and asks Mandy what's on her mind. Mandy: "I want you to help me get the Chinese to give us a new panda bear to replace Lum-Lum." Toby: "Well, that did the trick." Thanks, Mandy. Some of us were enjoying Toby's good mood. ["It was kind of unnerving." -- Wing Chun]
Out in the hallway, Zoey runs into Charlie. She's on her way to see C.J.; Charlie says he spoke to her and that she's going to speak to Danny. (C.J. never actually mentioned Danny by name, but I guess Charlie can put two and two together.) Zoey complains sweetly that Charlie could have kissed her hello. Charlie says, "That's what your dorm room is for." Zoey calls him a chicken and Charlie replies, "You better believe it. When I kiss you I want a good two, three miles between your mouth and the Oval Office." Come on, Zoey -- he's at work, and you may recall that he works for your father, the President of the United States. Cut him some slack, already. Zoey, however, hassles him about it, saying her friend Stacy claims that Charlie has a problem with public displays of affection. Charlie's unfazed and responds, "Tell Stacy to meet me in the middle of Union Station and let's see how it goes." Zoey then asks if C.J. has a problem, because she doesn't understand why C.J. wants to see her. Charlie's still going on about how he's not afraid of being affectionate in public. Zoey pushes him up against the wall and kisses him for five seconds before zooming off to C.J.'s office. Charlie kinda nods as he walks away, saying to himself, "I see."
Zoey arrives at C.J.'s office; C.J. thanks her for coming by. Zoey says she knows she should have just walked away from Edgar Drumm, but C.J. understands that he pushed Zoey's buttons. Zoey starts to say that David isn't a drug dealer, but C.J. interrupts to ask Zoey if she told Drumm that she didn't know David Arbour was going to be at the party. Zoey says that she did; upon hearing this, C.J. says she needs to know why Zoey lied to Drumm. Zoey says she didn't. C.J. then says, "And I need to know why you're lying to me right now." C.J. asks why, if Zoey didn't know he was going to be there, she had his car keys. Zoey doesn't say anything as we go to commercials. Couldn't she have been bringing the keys just in case David happened to be at the party? I'm not sure why this has to be such a big deal.
