When we return, Gordon and Miss World are practically engaged. Toby tells Annabeth that the President's speech is in the printer, assuming there is one. Speech, that is, not printer. Annabeth gazes at the new lovebirds and says, "Don't you just love Valentine's Day?" Her head is incredibly bulbous, which makes me hate her even more. Toby returns to Doc and the Belarussians. Which is totally the name of my new band. Toby basically tells Doc that he's wasted the Belarussians' time by spending the morning discussing a democratic system that will never work for them. Doc says that it's not a waste of time, and Toby tells him that they need to head back to Minsk on Friday with a set of laws. Doc says that what they need is a sense of the rule of law. Toby says, "You're not planning on writing a constitution this week?" Doc uses some example about a lawsuit to be able to teach German in school to prove the point that a constitutional democracy only succeeds if the constitution reflects democratic values already alive in the citizenry. Toby says that the Belarussians don't have those values, and Doc says that these values need to be instilled in their leaders via discussion and debate. He introduces the estimable Belarussians one by one with their credentials, and then says, "If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits eighty-eight miles per hour...you're gonna see some serious shit." End of scene, thank God.
On the balcony, Jed sneaks a cigarette. Leo appears and asks if they are bad for the MS. Jed snots that he has seventeen nursemaids, and says, "She didn't wake me up this morning." He starts to say what he could have done if he was awake, and Leo cuts him off by telling him that the BPM thinks he's a Yankee Doodle Windbag, and that he probably would have made things worse. Leo implies that Jed is micromanaging, and tells Jed to let C.J. do her job, so that Jed can do his.
Meanwhile, C.J. asks Abbey for a moment of her time. Abbey says that she sent Jed back to work. C.J. knows this, and tells Abbey that she needs to stop confusing the staff, and that if Abbey has a question or concern, she needs to come to C.J. directly. Abbey says, "What if I can't find you?" Like, I'm so sure that no one would know where C.J. is. C.J. says, "Find me." Abbey brats, "You want to take away my key to the executive washroom, too?" C.J. sits across from Abbey. The scene is softly lit, and crackling with sexual intensity. Just seeing if you were still paying attention, there. C.J. says that she made a mistake that morning by not making the decision on her own. Abbey says that she can't make the decisions on her own because she's not a doctor, and C.J. says that she's the Chief of Staff, and that it's not a medical issue. The President needs to be awake and filled in on the important stuff, yo. What the President does with that information, and how he manages his disease, are his decisions. Abbey says that he was up until midnight and that he's not managing his disease, and C.J. tells her to take it up with him. Just when it seems that they are about to consummate their long-repressed passion, C.J.'s beeper goes off. Dang!
