As C.J. enters her office, she calls to Carol and tells her to contact the State Department and begin gathering statements of support from any Security Council members. "If we get 'em all, it can make a Security Council resolution seem like a done deal." Just then, Toby walks by her office and makes the same suggestion: "We can tell the President it was your idea." As soon as Toby walks away, Josh walks in and makes the same suggestion: "I got your back on this." As Josh walks away, C.J. tells Carol, "This day's going to be an absolute nightmare." You said it, sister.
The hospital. Abbey is reading through Leo's chart and grilling one of the doctors about Leo's condition and treatment. At the end of interrogation, the doctor says, "He was down a long time." Jed: "Time being muscle?" Doc: "Yes sir."
Josh and C.J. pedeconference toward her office. He tells her that he'll be gone for about an hour. She tells him that State already has language drafted for a Security Council resolution, and he says he heard that Russia was on board. She tells him that Indonesia is threatening to vote against it, and "Turkmenistan's banging on cans for no reason I can fathom." Josh tells her not to comment on Turkmenistan, because its leader is insane: "He created a holiday for his favorite melon...He mandated that the Turkmen people gnaw on bones like dogs to strengthen their teeth." This is not far from the truth. Josh advises that they ignore him, and that he will eventually fall in line. When C.J. asks him where he's going, Josh tells her that he's meeting Donna's plane, which is landing at Andrews Air Force base. Again, this calls for a rousing chorus of "bullshit." Donna underwent major surgery approximately five days ago -- there is simply no way she would be in any position to fly that quickly. As Josh turns to leave C.J.'s office, he snags a donut from a tray of them next to her door. She chastises him: "Leo's having his chest cracked open and all morning you've been heading toward a high fructose coma." Josh: "I just eat this stuff when it's around." C.J.: "Which is all the time." She says that she'd like to see him survive past the age of twelve, and tells him that if he can stay off the junk food for one week, she'll cook him dinner that weekend. Josh: "Wearing an apron and one of those floppy hats?" C.J.: "Wearing anything you like." On seeing the look that comes over his face, she backtracks a bit. "I mean...you know perfectly well what I mean." He accepts the challenge, and throws the donut away into the trash can she's holding up.
