Josh is wandering around asking whether anybody has seen some other lost folder of his, regarding "southeast targets." I don't think bombing Ritchie's voting base is going to lead to victory, either. Donna pops in to give him the missing folder and to drag him back into her subplot. They pedeconference around as Donna explains that nothing special needs to be done in order for POTUS to issue a proclamation for Molly Marillo. Josh insists that POTUS can't just go around making declarations just because Donna would like them. Josh claims that they're reserved for truly important causes. Donna informs them that they're smack in the middle of "National Digestive Diseases Awareness Week." Well, if you had a digestive disease, you wouldn't be so quick to dismiss it, Donna. And last week they had "General Pulaski Memorial Day." Josh tells her they haven't vetted Molly Marillo yet. Donna asks if he's worried that Marillo is a lesbian. Josh jokes that if she were, they'd actually consider it. He's more worried that she has some skeleton in her closet. He tells Donna to do a Google search on her and then come talk to him. You know, I did that with my own name last year and about choked when the first match was a gay porn site. After hyperventilating for about an hour, I clicked over to discover that they had illegally posted some writing I had done for some gay press outlets for reasons that still elude me. I made them take it down, but wondered if that was why I never got an invitation to my high school's ten-year reunion. Not that I would have attended.

We cut to VPOTUS's office, where Hoynes is just arriving to meet with Sam. Hoynes asks Sam about the hockey game. Sam says he didn't find it very enjoyable. Sorkin must have found some dialogue from Sports Night sitting around that he never had the chance to use, so Hoynes gives an amusing tirade about how Americans like to "savor" the tension in sports like baseball, but in hockey, things happen too quickly. He mimics an announcer: "LePetier passes to Huckenchuck, who skates past the blue line; Huckenchuck, of course was traded to Winnipeg for a case of Labatt's after sitting out last season -- oh my god, he scores!" I don't know. I'm not much of a sports fan, but I watched Olympic hockey, and there certainly was plenty of tension to savor on the ice. Whereas I've attended baseball games and was bored out of my skull. Now I'm glad Sars isn't editing this recap. Baseball sucks! Bwa ha ha ha! Anyway, they finally get down to business. Sam tells Hoynes the bad news about the Internet Challenge Fund, adding that he's there to help Hoynes save it. Hoynes rattles off statistics about the huge numbers of poor and minority people who don't have internet access, and wants to make some calls. Sam tells Hoynes that the problem is the committee's chairman. Hoynes attacked the chairman over an issue, and he bears a grudge. Hoynes points out that the administration asked him to attack the chairman. Sam is aware of this. Hoynes says that Sam's going to help Hoynes get this taken care of. Sam agrees.
