Josh visits Leo in his office, who tells him that the meeting with Billy is set up. Josh is relieved: "This is great. Good is going to come from this." Leo's got his coat on and is leaving for the day. He says, "Maybe." Josh agrees, "Maybe. But how often do you get to...." He asks when the meeting is; Leo says, "Day after tomorrow." Josh: "You're kidding." He's not. They wanted to do it right away. He senses Josh's dismay and asks what the problem is. Josh doesn't want to say, but Leo pulls it out of him: "There's a woman I've been --" Like he couldn't have guessed that from this morning's phone call. Leo says, "Amy Gardner." Josh seems surprised that Leo's aware of it. Leo says, "I hear things. I try to forget them quickly, but..." Josh babbles out that they were supposed to go away together the day after tomorrow. Leo says, "Go," and keeps on trucking down the hall. Josh says he can't. Because he's gotta be da man on everything, and can't stand to be left out of this Vieques thing. ["Maybe he just wants to stay because it's fun to say 'Vieques,' and he doesn't have a good reason to do it very often." -- Wing Chun] Leo says he doesn't need to be here for it, and Josh is all, aw shucks, don't worry about it. Leo says, "My wife lives in my house. I live in a hotel, and this is why." I love Leo's way with words. He wastes very few. But: his wife? They're still not divorced? Hmm. Anyway, Leo trots off down the hall, and Josh says he's glad the meeting's arranged. But you just know he's going to call Amy and cancel.
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.
