After the commercials, it's Wednesday morning. Mrs. Landingham greets Charlie as she comes into work, asking if he ever solved the mystery of the uncashed $500 cheque written by the First Lady. Charlie says that he did, explaining that Abby had written the cheque to a woman she read about in the paper, who now lives in a shelter for battered women. Mrs. Landingham guesses that the woman never chased the cheque because it was from the First Lady, and that she framed it instead. She asks whether POTUS knows that he has breakfast with Josh and Sam. Charlie says that he's on his way. He adds that it was a good mystery, and that Mrs. Landingham just solved it fast because he "loosened the ketchup bottle" for her.
As Sam and Josh wander to their breakfast meeting with POTUS, Josh tells Sam that the whole night, at the phone banks, Donna kept pestering him to ask Joey Lucas on a date. Sam says that Josh should. Josh says, "That aside, what do you make of Donna being the one pushing it?" It's as if he knows, but he won't let himself know that he knows it. Or something. Anyway, Sam says that he doesn't make anything of it. Josh asks, "You wouldn't think she'd be jealous?" Sam asks, "She goes out with guys. Are you jealous?" Josh says he isn't. Sam says, "See?" Josh states, "I don't get jealous. I don't like it...and usually do everything within my considerable capabilities to sabotage it. Which is why it's curious that Donna would do nothing to discourage and, in fact, do everything to encourage a date with Joey Lucas, who, quite frankly, is a very attractive woman." He says the last part kind of squeakily. Sam says, "Josh? You know your voice just got really high at the end of that?" Josh gives kind of a wee cough and says, "Yeah. Sorry."
