Elsewhere, C.J. and Simon are walking home from some sort of party that was two blocks away. Simon mutters that he wishes C.J. had taken the car there, I imagine for security reasons. They banter a little more, and Simon points out that C.J.'s walking on the wrong side of him (she's on the outside, closest to the street). C.J. moves to the inside and brings up Rosslyn. She asks him what his job was during the assassination attempt. After some hemming and hawing, he tells her that he was the one who shot and killed one of the shooters. C.J. stops short at this news. After some more banter, C.J. tells Simon, "I just like your smile, is all. I wouldn't mind seeing it more." She starts leaning in. Simon starts leaning in. Leaning. Leaning. Oh, kiss denied! Simon pulls back and says that he can't. C.J. immediately agrees, and they're both very flustered, and if the stalker were anywhere near them right now, they'd both probably be dead. Simon starts to explain why he can't do anything, but C.J. already knows, of course, and they arrive back at her house. There's another Secret Service agent waiting for them outside. Surely, she must have seen what happened, but she says nothing. C.J. heads up to her apartment, and the replacement agent follows her. A black SUV pulls up to the curb, and Simon gets in and rides off. Only the acting and chemistry between Allison Janney and Mark Harmon keep these scenes from being ridiculous. As it is, they're merely predictable.
