C.J. is pedeconferencing with Carol, who has booked C.J. on several shows. Just then Josh walks in behind them. C.J. lets out a sappy "heeeey," and then gives him a very warm and sincere hug. She immediately asks him how Donna is doing. Josh: "She threw me out. Her mother's driving her crazy, and her I.R.A. boyfriend is plotting sedition. Or maybe it was seduction. Probably both." C.J.: "Dashing photojournalist?" Josh: "I believe the professional term is 'wanker.'" Josh expresses some surprise that Leo is at the White House and not up at Camp David.
Josh knocks on the door of Leo's office and enters, asking, "So, where do you want me?" Leo also immediately asks how Donna is. See, I told you Toby was being a dick last week. Josh tells him that she's doing better, and that she may be able to fly in a few days. Leo tells Josh to "get up to Camp David. Toby's climbing the walls, he thinks the President's going to give away the store." Josh asks how Leo is doing, and Leo just starts talking about the outrage being expressed by the Syrian government. Well, Leo, you did drop some bombs on their country. I think Emily Post would agree that's a good reason to express anger. Josh leaves to pack a bag and head to Camp David, and Leo calls for Margaret. He asks her if they've heard anything from the President that morning. She hasn't, and he declines her offer to call Debbie for an update.
Suggestion #2 of a better way to spend your time instead of watching a bad episode of The West Wing: check out the Utah Baby Namer. You can easily kill way more than an hour there. Just beware that you are going to laugh out loud.
C.J. is in the briefing room, giving a...briefing. She's just going over the schedule of the activities at Camp David. She also starts going over the menu, which includes Maryland crabcakes. That's just lovely. Why don't they also serve some ham and some cheeseburgers. And drench everything with a lovely burgundy sauce while they're at it. Unless they're serving Maryland genuine imitation "crabcakes." That would be acceptable. Otherwise, I either have to believe the people who produce this show are stupid, or that the producers want me to believe that the White House staff is stupid. Can you guess which one I think is more likely?
Camp David. Groups of people are sitting around different tables, carrying on discussions, while waiters deliver beverages. The camera pans over to a group of sofas and easy chairs near a large fireplace, where Toby, Josh, Will, the Israeli PM, the Israeli Defense Minister, and the Palestinian PM discuss possible post-withdrawal security arrangements. The talks seems to be going nowhere, as the Palestinian PM insists that Palestinian sovereignty is meaningless if Israeli troops remain in the territories, and the Israeli Defense Minister insists that Israel must be allowed to keep troops in the territories to protect itself.
