Donna is sitting on a little settee just inside the entrance to the West Wing when C.J. walks by and greets her. C.J. sits next to her and tells her how good it is to see her. She notes that Donna must be having a great day, and then asks, "How's Josh?" Donna: "What do you mean?" C.J.: "Which part tripped you up?" Donna realizes that when C.J. asked "how's Josh," she wanted to know how Josh was doing. It's true, love does make you stupid. Donna tells C.J. that Josh is thrilled about the poll numbers. C.J. asks her, "What's going on?" Donna denies that there's anything unusual happening, but C.J. doesn't believe her, asking if there's "a Josh thing going on." Donna: "No, no, no, no, no." How did she get to be the press spokesperson for Santos again? She can't fool C.J., who is now convinced that something happened. Donna continues to deny it, and C.J. tells her, "Oh come on, you've got a useless poker face. I spend my whole day talking about election monitors in Central Asia. Throw me a bone." Donna sighs, and then tells her that she and Josh had "an odd moment," which she describes as being "just another in a long series of odd moments, meant to be ignored." And then C.J. sees Vinick and entourage (including Sheila, Bruno, and Bob) arriving at the entrance. Debbie greets them, and they follow her into the building. Bruno glares daggers at C.J. as he walks past.
Debbie lets Vinick and company into the Mural Room. She tells them to make themselves comfortable, and then as she's walking out the door, she mutters, "Not too comfortable." Vinick, who is the only one near her as she says this, asks, "Excuse me?" Debbie, all innocence and light, responds, "Hmm?" They do this a couple more times before Vinick decides that he must be imagining things. Debbie rolls her eyes as she closes the door.
And then we see Carol ushering Josh, Donna, Bram, Ronna, Santos, and Leo into the Roosevelt Room. Donna is telling Josh about Vinick's arrival. As the crew starts to settle in, Debbie enters through a different door and offers them beverages. Santos declines on behalf of all of them, and then Debbie asks Leo to come with her. Santos gives Josh a look, and Josh tells him, "I have no idea."
Back in the Mural Room, Vinick and Sheila sit down on a sofa. Vinick is wiping his nose with one of those little tissues that someone stuck in all his pockets. And then he puts the dirty tissue back in his pocket. That's kind of gross, but I can also see how there's probably not a lot of trashcans sitting around the Mural Room for trash like that. I think it's better to stick a dirty tissue in your pocket than to drop it on the floor of the White House. As the Vinick crew is sitting around, they realize that they can see Debbie walk into her office through an open door at the end of the room. And then they see Leo follow her in and get admitted to the Oval Office. Vinick asks Sheila, "Why are we sitting here while the Democratic V.P. candidate's being ushered into the Oval Office?" Someone's a little cranky. I bet he didn't get the Vicks VapoRub that Josh sent him. Debbie walks up to the open door through which they saw all of this, and closes it. Commercials.
