Back in her office, C.J. asks Margaret to move the President's wake-up call back to 8:30 AM, and also says that she'd like to take a look at his schedule for the following day. We hear voices discussing something boring involving the words "constitutional bait and switch," and then Toby appears along with Doc Brown from Back to the Future. Toby introduces him as "Professor Lawrence Lessig," a constitutional writer who is helping the folks from Belarus to...er, write their constitution. And how great would it be if he introduced his assistant, Martin McFly? This show totally doesn't have that much of a sense of humor, though. Anyway, Doc is actually helping the Belarussians to re-write their constitution, since the original was the work of some big pinko commies. Frankly, I'm just relieved that he's keeping away from the Libyans these days. Jed enters, asking C.J. for a copy of some report, and Toby introduces him to "Professor Lawrence Lessig." Jed says, "The future of ideas? That Lawrence Lessig?" Jed calls him a founding father for hire and says, "Have quill will travel..." He certainly will travel. THROUGH TIME!
Doc says that he is more of a midwife than a founding father. Jed is looking for excuses to stay up late, and starts asking Doc a series of questions about constitutional drafting and history, which makes Doc quite happy. C.J. tries to interrupt and send Jed to bed, but he rationalizes that he can spare five minutes for Doc and says, "Come then! Let us sit as men do and discuss important things," and I think that remark is totally gendered given that C.J., the freaking Chief of Staff, is, like, trying to put him in footsie pajamas. Doc and Jed head off, so don't be surprised if some plutonium is missing tomorrow. We finally get the opening credits, thank the Lord.
