When we return, all the military advisers are filing out of the situation room, leaving Leo and Fitzwallace sitting alone at the table. The two of them sit in silence for a while. Leo says that this is when Fitz normally says something. Fitz asks Leo whether he's changed his shampoo. "You have, I can tell," he says, "'cause your hair seems bouncy and more manageable." Aww, another romance founded in a crisis. Leo jokes back that he likes to look good for Fitz. Fitz says he appreciates it.
After another awkward pause, Fitz says, "Can you tell when it's peacetime or wartime anymore?" Leo says no. Fitz says that he'd be on any list of top military leaders around today, but he can't tell when it's peacetime or wartime anymore. Leo sort of knows where Fitz is going with this. He reminds him that there have always been certain people that have been protected from attack, since the days of the Romans. Fitz tells the story of the Battle of Agincourt, between the French and the British. He explains that the battles had observers and heralds, and when a soldier surrendered, he was treated humanely. His point is that when the guidelines and ethics for determining valid military targets were created, the difference between "peacetime" and "wartime" was very clear. He adds, "That all changed after Pearl Harbor." Leo tells Fitz that he doesn't like where this is going. That's nonsense. It's very obvious that Leo stayed behind for the exact purpose of having this conversation with him. Fitz works in the episode title by pointing out, "We killed Yamamoto" during World War II by shooting down his plane. They bicker some more about historical precedents. Leo cuts Fitz off and tells him he's heading back to the office. Fitz tells him, "We measure the success of a mission by two things: was it successful? And how few civilians did we hurt? They determine success by how many." He comments that they've got pregnant women delivering bombs, and Leo is trying to bring up international law. He shouts out, "The laws of nature don't even apply here!" Fitz is pissed. He says, slightly menacingly, "I've been a soldier for thirty-eight years. And I've found an enemy I can kill. He can't cancel Shareef's trip, Leo. You've got to tell him he can't cancel it." Gee, I really hope that it doesn't turn out that their intelligence is incorrect and that Shareef is innocent. Leo looks concerned some more, then stands up and leaves.
