I don't think it should take three pages to describe the first six minutes of a show. ["It shouldn't, but it does, sometimes." -- Wing Chun]
After the commercials, C.J.'s holding a press briefing, describing the ceremony by which people are made ambassadors to the United States. She basically explains everything already covered in the Sumatra scene above, so I'm not going to reiterate it here. One reporter asks if there's a particular order in which ambassadors are received; basically, they're taken according to the order in which they arrived in Washington. Sumatra arrived from Thailand first; then POTUS will be seeing Peter Hans of Sweden, followed by Her Excellency Renee Ernesto of Argentina, then Noah Jola of Burkina Faso. She adds, "The newly named British Ambassador will be arriving in the United States just as soon as he's been newly named." The reporters are confused, thinking that someone had already been named, but he withdrew due to family obligations. His replacement withdrew due to severe illness. Since we've already seen Roger Rees in the previews and his name in the credits, I think we can pretty much assume that Lord John Marbury has a new job. (And yes, I'm aware that it should probably be John, Lord Marbury, but this is what the show's calling him, so that's what we're going with.) C.J. says as soon as she knows who it is, she'll tell them. She basically dismisses them, but as they leave, she wants to know whether any of them want to know who's been here the longest. "The dean of the diplomatic corps, anybody? Guys, you know, I study these things just for you." Everyone chatters amongst themselves as they disperse, ignoring C.J. She announces, "It's Prince Bandar bin Sultan of Saudi Arabia."
