The West Wing: Internal Displacement
While Danny tries to have a dinner with C.J. (and tell her about Doug Westin banging his nanny), there is trouble in the Sudan, and C.J. is frantically trying to broker a deal to stop all the death. Danny says that it seems like the Bartlet administration is simply running out the clock, not doing much before a Santos or Vinick administration takes over. C.J. knows he's kinda right, and at one point President Bartlet even asks her about the deals she is trying to make, "is this about the Sudan or about being kicked out of this office?"
Toby is mentioned once by Will ("Toby did it!"), Santos is only seen on a TV screen, Josh pisses off C.J. by making something public that wasn't supposed to be public so soon, and Leo and Vinick aren't on at all. Really cool to see Margaret have a few lines - "The President's waiting for you in the Oval Office - and I have a yogurt." By the way, when C.J. got the promotion, what happened to Carol?
C.J. gets Doug to announce to the press that the President won't be joining him on a campaign stop, but Liz asks her to reconsider - she knows that he was having an affair. But C.J. says that cancelling the appearance is for the best, and Doug will have to win/lose the election on his own.
At a second dinner, Danny announces that he's going to quit journalism. And he knows that C.J. will soon be out of a job, so...he asks her to marry him. But before she can even respond, her beeper goes off. She has to leave and Danny understands. She reaches the White House, where Kate tells her that there has been a nuclear accident in California.
But beyond all the political intrigue and international catastrophes and emotional drama, the really big question is: how the hell can the goldfish Danny gave C.J. several years ago still be alive?!
