In a bar somewhere, Toby waits. Finally, Senator Marino shows up. ["He's played by total Hey! It's That Guy! Mike Starr." -- Wing Chun] Marino already knows about the potential session; he describes it as well-leaked. Toby wryly remarks, "It's nice we found a use for our particular talents." He asks Marino about who they lost and whether it's important. From all the fuss until now, you'd think it was pretty important no matter who it is. Marino says that it was true and that it couldn't be less important. He confesses that he's the one who's changed his vote. Toby's quite confused and Marino says that he hasn't changed his mind, and that he'll do whatever the White House wants in terms of spadework, but that if a session is called now, he can't vote for the treaty. Marino says he's a lame-duck senator, and that the people of Pennsylvania voted him out, and voted Mitchell in. He adds that if Mitchell gets a seat on Foreign Relations, they should all kill themselves. He believes that he was voted out largely because of his support of the treaty. Toby says that's only because "Morgan painted them a picture." Marino says that isn't for him to say, and he chooses not to believe that his constituents feel that way because they were duped. Boy, that's pretty high-minded of ya. Marino says he finds that more and more people expect less and less of each other, and he thinks that should change. He's going to respect the voters and what they want for the ten weeks that he remains a senator. He tells Toby that if they call a session now, he'll abstain from the vote. Toby looks sad, as he does so much of the time.
After the commercials, it's 8:25 PM and Bonnie is leading a tour group around the White House. I guess the assistants have to take turns doing this, or something. Anyway, Toby bursts in and rants to the crowd at large, "Whole damn world's flying apart at the Equator. You know that, Bonnie?" She introduces him to the tourists as her boss. Oblivious, Toby rants on: "Why's the Test Ban Treaty so important? Let me tell ya: in 1974, India set off a peaceful nuclear explosion. Indira Gandhi herself said that they had no intention of building a bomb, they just wanted to know that they could! Twenty years later, India sets off five nuclear explosions. Who gets nervous? Pakistan! When Pakistan gets nervous, everybody gets nervous! You know why? 'Cause we're all gonna die!" All accented with some hysterical laughter and sweeping arm gestures. With that, he wanders out again, leaving the tourists with a good story to tell the folks back home about the crazy guy they saw at the White House. ["Is Toby an alcoholic, maybe? They show him in bars more often than they show anyone else. I hope he's not. That would be so After-School Special." -- Wing Chun]
