Leo is meeting with the Ghanaian representatives. Nzele is demanding that American troops leave Bitanga immediately and he'll continue peace talks with African countries. Leo says no. First Guy says it can't be argued that Nzele is a sadistic madman, but he's not stupid: "He knows where CNN is on his television. He's betting the first dead American soldier, and you lose...." Leo: "Our stomach for it?" First guy: "Yes." Leo tells Thomas and Robbie that they have to find a way to let Nzele know he has twenty-three hours before he loses that bet.
Will wanders into the meeting room, where he finds four attractive, trendily dressed young women. They explain they're the speechwriting staff interns. Will asks where the staff is; the woman who's been speaking isn't sure. He asks one woman her name; it's Lauren Chin. He asks her to find out where the staff is. Cassie, the first woman, says that Toby left a message for Will to call him. She introduces herself as Cassie Tatum, and the other two women as Lauren Romano and Lauren Shelby. Will grasps that three of them are named Lauren and recites their names. He steps into an adjoining office and calls Toby. While he's waiting for Toby to pick up, he remarks, "You're all pretty dressed up." Cassie says there's an intern party tonight but Toby told them to stay. Will reaches Toby in the back of a limo with C.J. Toby complains that it's 74 degrees in February and there's no civilization there. Isn't he a Lakers fan? Wouldn't being so close to them make him happy? Will asks where the staff is; Toby explains that he fired some of them. Well, all of them. Toby says he'll have a new staff just as soon as Will hires one. Will says he'll get it done himself. Toby says he can't, and that's why he left him a staff. Will complains, "That isn't a staff, Toby. Those are the Robert Palmer girls." Toby says they're bright young women: "Show some leadership skills. Get it done." Will figures out that they actually quit because of him. Toby admits it.
