Mile High. Emma is on her cell phone, speaking to new hubby Ian. As she hangs up the phone, she sees James passed out on the floor of the plane. Apparently, he's only partially passed out, because we do a quick cut to him sitting in a seat, drinking a glass of water, and apologizing for, you know, fainting. John tells him not to take the return flight, but to stay in Spain and see a doctor. James thinks that's a good idea, and tells Jackie and Emma that they'll have to work one person short on the flight to London. Jackie immediately jumps to the conclusion that, with James out of the picture, she'll be in charge, but he tells them both that Emma is his choice to take over as purser. Which I guess is what they call the head flight attendant. Jackie tries to argue, pointing out that she has seniority, but James, like George Bush, never changes his mind. Hmmm. Do you think Jackie will take this lying down? If you do, you've got another think coming.
TWW. Vinick walks out of his dressing room and starts walking down a backstage corridor with Bruno, who is giving him last-minute tips for the debate. Bruno reminds Vinick about the rules, which allow for answers, rebuttals, and possible re-rebuttals. All with set time limits, and a system of lights, buzzers, pulleys, and levers to make sure the candidates don't go over on their time. Vinick is totally petulant as he complains about the rules. Bruno tells him that Santos's people insisted on them, to protect Santos. Vinick asks, "Well, why the hell did we agree to them?" Bruno: "They protect you, too." Vinick thinks that all the time limits will just make him feel self-conscious and stiff. Bruno tries to go all Zen master on Arnie, telling him to relax and be himself. He reminds Vinick that Santos is more scared of Vinick than Vinick is scared of Santos. Vinick tells him, "You have no idea what this feels like. 'Terrified' doesn't begin to describe it."
