We finally learn what the argument is actually about! Toby is asking why the Prez can't admit that the weapons bill they passed has some weaknesses. Mandy points out that if they do that, "It'll infuriate the left, it'll energize the right, and everyone in the middle's gonna feel like they just got yanked around." The Prez offers, "My answer was gonna be, 'Because I said so,' but you did pretty good." Toby and the Prez snipe at each other some more, than Sam interrupts to announce, "my first cheese appointment is here." Sam asks if he can skip the appointment so that they can continue to prepare for the press conference. Leo says no. Sam says, "I think this press conference is about our future." The Prez mumbles through a mouthful of doughnut, "I think this press conference is about we haven't had a press conference in a while." Leo shoos Sam away.
Sam greets his crackpot o' the day, Bob, from "United States Space Command." While Sam makes the obligatory nerd jokes, I'll scope out his office. He's got two super-comfy looking chairs for visitors, a poster of Muhammad Ali and another for Amnesty International, and a Department of Justice baseball cap on a shelf behind his desk. Sam asks what Bob would like. "In a nutshell?" asks Bob. "So to speak," agrees Sam. Bob wants the White House to pay more attention to UFOs, and clarifies that "more" actually translates as "any." Sam says, "Like we don't have enough trouble with the First Lady and her ouija board." Bob hands Sam a big book that United States Space Command has made about UFOs and asks him to give it to the President. Sam says he's not going to do that, "because the President will either yell at me or laugh at me. Either way, it won't work out well for me." Then Bob mentions that something has been picked up on radar heading East from the Pacific, but Sam insists that it would be inappropriate to pass information directly from a radar officer to the Commander-In-Chief without going through the proper channels. Then Sam presents Bob with a White House pen. This scene is just begging for an X-Files reference.
