C.J. stops by Fishboy's office to ask him something, and then confirms that they're off the record. Then she changes her mind about asking him. Fishboy starts talking about kissing again, and insists that he doesn't mind it. C.J. says there won't be any more kissing. I shout hallelujah. C.J. finally asks, "Is it possible that a father could be embarrassed about his son being gay, even after his son was murdered?" Fishboy tells her that it is. "Possible to the extent that he'd be disinclined to support a law that would impose stiffer penalties upon the perpetrators of hate crimes, including the ones who tied his seventeen-year-old son to a tree and threw rocks at his head?" Again, Fishboy says yes. Sad and baffled, C.J. says, "It eludes me." Fishboy asks if she's going to tell the press about Chad's golf game. She says she'll have the information on Friday. "You're gonna dump it in the Friday trash," Fishboy notes. C.J. says, "He's a C-level aide to the Vice-President, Danny. He's resigning. You want to run a special section?" Fishboy and C.J. say goodbye to each other a few times. C.J. tells Fishboy he should go. And he should. Fishboy points out that they're in his office. C.J. leaves. Without kissing Fishboy. Go C.J.! Be strong!

Bruno says he wants to keep that from happening, and then asks, in his casual, non-confrontational way, "What happened?"
