Josh slowly walks back toward his office and along the way runs into Donna, who's still working on Project Avoid Jury Duty. She states, "The trick, obviously, is appearing unsuitable. Not just for this, but for any jury, while avoiding a contempt citation. So wouldn't you think if I just explained to them that my boss is a lawyer, my lawyer's a lawyer, and I'm dating a lawyer..." Mm-hmm. "Dating a lawyer"? Well, Cliff's a lawyer. Josh wearily interjects: "It's jury duty! It's not an appendectomy, it's jury duty. Do it, don't do it, but if you don't do it, you don't get to complain about the O.J. verdict."
Josh goes into his office, closes the door, and sits down heavily, trying to compose himself for this phone call. He grabs the phone and dials Amy. He reaches her at home, lying on her bed with Henry, who turns out to be a dog. A basset hound, I think; I'm not a dog expert. She's reading a book and says to Josh in Tahitian (and I'll be giving you this phonetically because that's all the closed-captioning is giving me): "Ia yo-rah-nah, My-tie oh-ay." She says that means "hello, how are you?" in Tahitian. Yeah, that's not helping Josh. She tells him he would say, "My-tie vah-oo," which means, "I am fine." He blurts out: "I can't go day after tomorrow." She seems unsurprised and says, "Yeah." He explains that he can go another time, but not the day after tomorrow. She says it was pretty sudden for him; he says it was pretty sudden for anybody. She says, "You're the one who asked me." Josh tells her about the problem in Vieques and that the resolution requires a meeting the day they were supposed to leave. Amy asks, "And Leo's making you stay for the meeting?" I wonder whether Josh will lie. Josh says, "Yeah. No, he's not. I want to stay." She says "okay" in such a way that you know it's not really. He explains that it involves a friend of his, who made a compromise, and Josh just wants to make sure his friend's back is covered. Amy tells Josh not to get mad at her. Josh claims he's not. Amy replies, "You're getting pre-emptively angry at me, which assumes I'm other people, and frankly I'd rather be a political asset, if you know what I mean." Josh snipes, "I do, and when you're done comparison shopping, give me a call." Amy: "Well, I'd definitely be waiting by your phone, Josh. Take it easy." She hangs up. Beautiful. Way to go, Josh. Donna -- who I guess was watching the light on his phone -- immediately comes in to say, "I don't know if you care, but you officially won the Iowa Democratic Caucus." Josh's expression doesn't really change.
