Over in Josh's office, C.J.'s voice in on the speaker phone. Josh is standing against the wall behind his door, in what looks like a slightly uncomfortable posture. C.J.'s saying, "It's not going to be Sir Christopher Nealing-Roach." Josh says, "I heard." She repeats this, and Josh repeats that he heard. C.J. replies, "But I like to say, 'Sir Christopher Nealing-Roach." Josh wants to know who it's going to be; C.J. doesn't know. She's waiting to hear from the State Department. She adds, "Maybe it will be Sir Christopher Nealing-Roach." Josh asks, "Can I stop talking to you now?" C.J. asks him what he's doing; he explains he's standing with his back straight against the wall, because doctors told him it would relax him. If you can't tell that Donna's about to come busting in and crash the door against Josh, I just don't know if I can help you. She does, and C.J. hangs up. Josh just stand there in his long-suffering way, closing the door behind Donna and asking what she wants. She wants to know if Leo can't stand a guy named Lord John Marbury. Apparently some reporter asked her. Josh, in his usual tactful way, wants to know, "What's a reporter doing talking to you?" Donna says it's a friend of a friend. Josh says, "Leo McGarry has nothing but respect and affection for John Marbury." Donna says that's what she said. Josh replies, "Good, because Leo thinks he's a lunatic." Donna says he's very handsome. Josh replies that may be so, but reiterates Leo's opinion.
Donna: Are you threatened by [Marbury's] brilliance?
Donna: You seem threatened by his brilliance.
Josh: How do you know he's brilliant?
Donna: I saw his picture.
Josh: I'm not threatened by his brilliance, nor am I threatened by his good looks.
Donna: How about his charm?
Josh: I'm not threatened at all.
Donna: I'm sorry, I meant Leo.
Josh: Neither Leo or [sic] I are threatened by his brains, his looks or his charm. He is, however, a lunatic Brit and we're grateful that there's an ocean between us.
Donna: There isn't anymore.
Josh: Please...don't tell me...
Donna announces that he's the new British Ambassador. Josh exhales very heavily. He gets up to go stand against the wall again, as Donna adds that Marbury is "dreamy." Her taste in men generally leaves a lot to be desired. He leans against the wall, as Donna hustles out, heaving the door against Josh again.
