At the polling centre, Josh and Donna wait in the dark. Donna, still on her perverse mission to hook Josh up with Joey, says, "Can I tell you something about women?" Josh puts his face in his hand and begs, "Oh God, please don't." Donna states, "We like to be wooed. She wants you to ask her out, Josh." Josh: "She really doesn't." Donna: "You're missing the signs." Josh: "I'm really not." Donna claims, "I know a thing or two about the ways of love." Josh says she doesn't. She insists he's missing the signs. He sure is. I wonder if he would see them if Donna stood in front of him wearing nothing but a big ribbon and a smile. Josh says he's thinking of firing Donna. She says, "You fired me twice already tonight. I'm impervious." Josh says, "Among other things," as Joey and Kenny buzz over. Joey suggests packing it in and starting over tomorrow night. Josh asks why. She points out that it's already 9:30 in California, the power isn't on, and they're missing half the window. He starts to argue but she says, very firmly, "Pack it in." Josh relents and tells the staff to call it a night. Joey and Kenny leave. Donna says, "So you have to wait another day." Josh: "I'm not good at waiting." Donna: "No kidding." She asks why he expects their internal polling to be any different from any of their other numerous forms of polling. Josh says they're asking different questions. Donna gathers up garbage and says she'll get Josh's coat. As she walks away, she adds, "By the way, right there, back when she said 'see you,' that was a sign." Josh wearily says, "You're fired." As she disappears Donna calls out, "Impervious!"
Out on the Oval Office patio, Jed 's playing chess with himself. He's still not wearing a coat. Leo is, however, as he comes out and says, "Mr. President. You understand we've got heating inside, right?" Jed replies, "This isn't cold, it's crisp." Oy, Frink says stuff like that to me. Leo says, "No, it's cold." Jed: "Well, you're a big wussy." Leo sits down next to Jed and says, "Knight to King-4." Jed protests that that will leave the Bishop open. Leo says, "You're going to sacrifice the Bishop for the Queen's Rook." Jed asks where. Leo replies, "Four moves down." Jed moves several pieces and says, "Abby's pretty pissed at me." Leo asks how bad. Jed replies, "Pretty bad." Leo offers, "King's Knight-3." Jed says, "You know, I have this image in my mind of the dead soldiers coming back from Vietnam...caskets coming off the plane, but I don't know from where." Leo says, "Television." Jed asks, "The caskets coming off the plane?" Leo says, "Yeah." Jed asks, "Are they down?" Leo tells him that the Deltas landed in Tres Encinas, and Alpha moved out, and they'll be in Villacerreno at 0700. Jed adds, "Where they wait." Leo confirms this. Jed tells him he'll see him in the morning. Leo thanks him and leaves Jed rubbing his hands together in a mixture of anxiety and hypothermia, studying his chess board.
