Sam's in the Briefing Room with C.J. and a few other people I presume are various assistants and flunkies. Sam says they'll have thirty minutes after the speech "to spin" and also the next morning as well. He's asking them which things they want to emphasize; one guy, munching on a sandwich, volunteers, "America is the world's biggest emitter of carbon dioxide." Sam adds, "We have four percent of the population; we are responsible for twenty-five percent of the greenhouse emissions. How are we going to reduce those levels of greenhouse emissions, you ask?" C.J. responds, "Through the Clean Air Rehabilitation Effort." Sam says, "Yes, which you can read about in bullet points beginning on page eleven. Please don't skip the footnotes and please don't just read what's underlined." C.J. says, "Question: were you able to get girls to go out with you in high school?" Sam says yes. C.J. asks, "Really?" Sam ignores this and goes on rambling about a program of cash incentives for emissions reductions, eliciting dutiful responses from a couple of flunkies. Sam asks C.J. if she can tell them any more about that, and she sasses him, "No, but I can tell you that lumber, cocoa beans, aluminum and petroleum products are the major exports of Cameroon." Sam: "Then you're all set." Josh enters at this point and asks Sam if can "have her" for a moment. C.J. is rightfully annoyed: "Why do ask him and not me?" Josh weakly says, "He looked in charge." C.J. asks, "Of where I go?" Josh, wearily: "Can we please..." She gets up and goes with Josh.
