Donna meets with Ivan Perez at a restaurant. He's giving her chapter and verse on migrant workers' rights as someone suddenly comes up and takes their picture without asking. Donna comments that that was weird. Ivan says that happens to him sometimes. Donna asks if he's also a rock star in addition to being a farm labour leader. She goes on to ask him his opinion of Richard Sutter. Ivan says he's the enemy and starts to elaborate but Donna's heard enough and says she'll try to get him in to see Josh while they're there. Ivan seems pleased.
Outside the restaurant, Donna runs into Sam, who seems happier to see her than he has anybody else so far. He's with Scott and his other campaign guy and some aides and introduces her to them as one of his best friends. Sam and Donna kiss on both cheeks. Seriously, Donna. Josh? When you could have Sam? You mystify me. They all walk along as he asks where she's coming from. She tells him who she just met with and that Josh wanted her to find out if he's legit. Sam hasn't heard of him but asks the rest of his entourage about Perez. Turns out the guy ran for Governor of California under the Communist Party. Donna's shocked to learn he's a Communist: "I thought he was a farmer." Scott: "They're all farmers!" (Psst, Donna...Google. Sam tells him to take it easy. Man, she hardly seems to be able to get out of bed without putting her foot in something smelly. She just seems to be involved in one perception problem after another with this administration. Sam asks Donna if anyone saw her having coffee. Donna tells him about the photographer. Scott: "Oh, my God!" He and the other guy pull out their phones as the Other Manager says, "Honest to God, lady, how stupid can you be?" Wrong move, buddy. Sam: "Hey! Out of here. You're fired." He just loves to fire obnoxious men as a chivalrous gesture. Okay, maybe twice doesn't constitute a pattern. ["I would have been more impressed if Donna had told him to go blow herself. She doesn't work for his ass." --Wing Chun] Scott's on the phone but says, "I need him." Sam: "I don't care. He's out of here." Other Manager obnoxiously says, "You're gonna get creamed." Sam: "Like I'm not used to that."
Will notices Leo walking around and catches up to him. As they walk through the halls, Leo says he heard his staff quit: "Because we promoted you to deputy?" Will: "It would appear so." Leo: "Well, that's a little small." Will brushes it off and asks if there's anyone around with speechwriting experience he could borrow for a day or two. Leo says a lot of people went to California, and the Treasury Secretary's staff is in the Midwest. Will asks if there's anything he can do for Leo, with regard to whatever's happening right now: "I feel a little responsible." Leo: "You are." Will asks if Leo needs him to prepare remarks at all. Leo: "I hope not." Leo walks into the Sit Room.
