But although Toby says it isn't going to work, the next thing we see is Josh in his office being visited by Toby: "If -- if -- we were going to try this, what would be the plan?" Josh says that they'd give Mulready's name to Jed and Leo, and then Lang and Mulready would both come in. Hopefully, Jed would like them both and agree to the deal "without noticing he's standing in the gaze of history, pantless." Hee. Jokes about the social sciences and underwear are reliably funny. Toby agrees to talk to Jed, because it will sound better coming from him, given Josh's known feelings about Lang. He asks about the committee, and Josh says that Lisa is taking the idea to the chair. Toby isn't talking about that -- Toby is talking about the Democrats. What about Pierce? He won't want to vote for Mulready. "What are you going to do about Pierce?" Toby demands. It's interesting how hard Josh is pushing this idea, considering that it is almost literally true that no one besides himself can stand the thought of it. Just then, the God of Comic Timing returns, bringing Swimtern through the office, singing "Stay" at the top of his voice. "I thought you were firing him," Toby says. "If wishing made it so," Josh sighs. Toby takes off, and Josh hollers for Donna. "Send in Elvis," he says.
