On the plane, Donna is pitching a horrible sketch idea that involves Leno dressing as Vinick to steal some Halloween candy and then being arrested by Santos, who will be dressed as a police officer. Annabeth tells her that they might have to go back to the clarinet. Josh and Lou walk by. Basically, they're going to be really late for the Houston rally, the trick-or-treating photo op was a disaster, and they have no ideas at all for a sketch.
Santos enters the plane, carrying Little Boy Santos. Helen and Little Girl Santos follow. Helen takes LB Santos, and Santos asks...the bartender? Yeah, I guess so. He asks the bartender for some coffee. Otto walks up, and Santos asks where McNally is. (By the way, at this point Santos calls her "NSA," but the closed captioning refers to her as "former NSA." But earlier in the episode, Josh definitely called her "former NSA." So I think it's clear that Nancy has left her post. Does that mean Kate is the new NSA?) Otto breaks it to Santos that McNally had an early meeting in D.C. and left. See, I told you she was the one who bumped you, and not vice versa. Santos is not thrilled, and asks Josh to get her on the phone. Josh raises the problem with The Tonight Show, and Donna explains the issue with the sketch. Santos is clearly on his last nerve, and he does not need to deal with this picayune crap. Santos shuts Donna up by pointing out that he needs to get McNally on the phone, and that he has a call with Waller at 9:00. Josh breaks it to Santos that he canceled the Waller call, in part because the foreign policy section of the stump speech is already done. And isn't five days before the election a kind of stupid time to be messing with your stump speech? Santos is pissed, and starts talking about how the deployment of troops to Kazakhstan is going to deplete the military's ability to keep troops deployed in the West Bank. By now, he's screaming: "We are looking at three or four years in Central Asia. That is an entire presidency!" Santos storms off into his private room. Helen offers to go after him, but Josh tells her that he's got it.
