C.J. is meeting with Chet, who seems kind of pissed. Everyone is always in such a foul mood around this place. He says that the U.S. has to control the British, because they are jeopardizing more than just the nuclear talks. Chet says that people are rallying around the Ayatollah, and that the President (of Iran) is worried about the future of their reform movement. C.J. says that's good enough reason to apologize, but Chet says that with the impending threats from the BPM, the Ayatollah is not going to apologize, nohows. He asks why he would consider an apology, and C.J. says, "Maybe to avoid compromising a potential relationship with the United States." Chet asks if the U.S. apologized when its Navy shot down an Iran Air flight and killed 290 innocent people, and that kind of makes C.J. shut her piehole. He says that even if an apology were in his best interest, the Ayatollah is a very proud man when it comes to his air force. C.J. asks Chet to do his best, and he says that he will, but the U.S. must control the British. Maybe they should introduce the Ayatollah to Miss World.
Leo enters and asks if things went well. C.J. gives a negative "yeah." She asks how talks with the French went, and Leo says, "Like talking to Madame Defarge." Or, as I like to say, like talking to El Debarge, because I have no idea what he means. C.J. says that the U.N. is scared to death of an Iranian nuke. Leo says that maybe the U.S. should just fall in line. C.J. says that the reform movement has gained a lot of ground in ten years, and that you've gotta love Iran and their newfound Western-loving ways. She notes that, if he refuses to apologize and the British retaliate, the Ayatollah can rebuild the nuclear plants with the added benefit of anti-American sentiment. Blah blah blah. I hate when they talk politics. Can't we just concentrate on whether Josh and Donna are ever going to fuck each other?
