Are You Detecting A Pattern Here?
Josh's office / Corridors of the West Wing / Mural Room. Josh addresses Will, Ed & Larry when Donna enters.

(they reach the Mural Room, and Josh glances inside)

DONNA: Are you detecting a pattern here?
STEVE: Hello, Josh. Everybody.
JOSH: Hey, Steve, how's it going?
STEVE: Good. You all want to come in for a second, say hello?
JOSH: Nah, that's okay. Thanks. (Steve turns to enter the Mural Room) Hey, Steve? Don't get too comfortable in there--you guys won't be back for three or four more terms.
ED / LARRY: (staring at the TV monitor) Hey guys ...
JOSH: (peering at the Mural Room) Do we have any hidden cameras or tape recorders or something in there?
WILL: Not since the mid '70s.
DONNA: Josh ...
(She calls his attention to the TV monitor, where there is breaking news of a bombing in Turkey.)











Come On
Josh's office, late night. He sits at his computer, typing, when Donna enters and pleads with him to leave.

DONNA: I thought Leo told you to go home?
JOSH: Yeah.
DONNA: Come on, get your coat.
JOSH: I have some things I want to finish up. You go ahead, though.
DONNA: Harold says people have been leaving stuff for Zoey by the fence all day long. I thought I might walk by on my way home, check it out. (he ignores her and keeps typing) Josh. (she nods towards the door and he looks up, haggered and weary) Come on.











Oh My God
Outside the White House, late night. Josh and Donna come across the public's memorial for Zoey -- a mass of candles and flags and cards and pictures and stuffed animals and flowers and solemn, sad faces.

DONNA: (softly) Oh, my God.
