As they leave Leo's office, Toby asks Josh to get him "everything." Josh protests that they already vetted the nominee for two months; Toby says they're going to vet him four more days: "I want to know every parking ticket, I want to know every girlfriend he stood up for dinner in 1953! Amanda, you're going to roll this guy out in a show that's going to make the Queen's coronation look like dinner theatre." Um, her name's Amanda now, and not Madeleine? ["When was her name Madeleine?" -- Wing Chun] Okay. At least it makes more sense with the fact that everyone calls her Mandy. And they're going to do this in four days? Okay....Toby's still issuing orders: "Sam, you're going to write the President's introduction; you're also going to write Harrison's remarks." Sam opines that Harrison isn't going to like that, which Toby brushes off with, "Show him the robe he gets; he'll like it fine." Toby tells C.J. to make sure there are no leaks, because if the name gets out before he wants it to, he says he's going to blame her and she's going to find that unpleasant. He's wagging his finger at her and raising his voice, too. Personally, it would annoy the hell out of me to be talked to that way in this context but even though she looks slightly taken aback, C.J. keeps her cool and says, "I gotta tell you Toby, you're hot when you're like this." Toby then shouts to the room at large, "I am going to put Harrison on the court! I swear to God I am!" Um, no offense, Toby, but you might have better luck keeping the name from leaking out if you weren't bellowing it all over the place, but whatever. Mandy asks C.J. to come talk with her as Sam and Josh gloat a bit.
