Bob enters Vinick's outer office, and tells Sheila that he has the exit polls Vinick was asking for. Sheila: "Great. Now he can really obsess about why he lost." Vinick's attorney emerges from his office and tells Sheila that she has to talk to him about money; by refusing to sit on any boards, Vinick is seriously undermining his earning potential.
Transition HQ. Agent Butterfield apologizes to Santos and Helen for the interruption, and tells them that if Helen and the kids are going to live in Houston, the Secret Service is going to shut down the entire street -- no one will be able to enter the block without passing through a security checkpoint. Helen prepares to start pitching a fit when Santos pulls her away. Santos asks Helen whether she's okay, and with some honesty, she tells him that she's not. He starts to tell her that the agents are just trying to do their jobs, and she cuts him off: "This is not gonna work. We should all move to the White House with you in January." He accepts that, and suggests that they start looking at schools.
Non-Transition HQ (aka Vinick's office). Bob and Sheila enter Vinick's office, and Vinick asks whether Bob has the exit polls. He does, and he tells Vinick that they lost Nevada because of the nuclear accident. Vinick dives into the numbers, but Sheila immediately starts haranguing him about not sitting on any boards and not planning on earning enough to support himself. Sheila suggests that Vinick take a job with a D.C. law firm. Vinick tells her, "I won't do any lobbying. It wouldn't look good." Sheila keys in one part of that answer, pointing out that he wouldn't have to lobby. Bob keys in on the other part, wondering what Vinick means by saying "it wouldn't look good." Sheila notes that Vinick only wants to lecture in Pennsylvania, Florida, and Ohio, and realizes that he's thinking about running for President again in four years. Sheila clearly thinks this is a bad idea, and Vinick starts to get petulant. Vinick wonders who will be the frontrunner for the Republican nomination in four years: "One of the seven dwarves I just beat?" Bob calmly points out that Ray Sullivan is the presumed frontrunner, and that thanks to his role as Vinick's Veep candidate, he has a real chance. Vinick thinks Sullivan wouldn't run against him. Sheila's not so sure: "You wanna bet on that?" Vinick thinks that he would have won if it wasn't for the nuclear accident, and that the accident will have been forgotten in four years' time. Sheila and Bob are struck silent. He accuses them of thinking he's too old, and then tells them, "I feel great. I'm telling you, seventy is the new sixty." Commercials.
