My Man!
Bullpen / Josh's Office. Josh approaches Donna after returning from the summit in Helsinki.

JOSH: Good morning!
DONNA: My man!
JOSH: Yes.
DONNA: You came back to me.
JOSH: Just like I promised.
DONNA: I missed you.
JOSH: When did you find you missed me the most?
DONNA: The nights.
JOSH: Of course.
DONNA: Did you bring me anything?
JOSH: I did.
DONNA: Where is it?
JOSH: It should be in my office.
DONNA: (sees package on his desk) Wow!
JOSH: Open it.
DONNA: I'm just happy it's not moose. What is it?
JOSH: Moose. It's sauna-smoked moose meat. Nicely packaged in a burnt pine box--the hinges are made from handwoven Lapland ribbons.
DONNA: I missed you so much.
JOSH: Where am I supposed to be right now?
DONNA: The basement, Office C.








If I'm Going To Eat A Moose, There's Going To Have To Be Some Kind Of Prize At The End Of It
Bullpen / Corridor of the West Wing. Josh approaches Donna after she wraps up the assistants' meeting.

JOSH: Jojo?
DONNA: Good morning.
JOSH: Did you try the moose meat?
DONNA: I didn't, and I'll tell you why. I'm saving it for a special--
JOSH: It's up to 180 bucks on eBay.
DONNA: eBay. (laughs nervously) Look--
JOSH: I-I don't understand. I don't need to tell you that you can't sell some--
DONNA: I gave it to an intern.
JOSH: You did.
DONNA: I'm sorry. I appreciated you giving it to me, but if I'm going to eat a moose, there's going to have to be some kind of prize at the end of it.
JOSH: Who's the intern?
DONNA: Well, how about if I'd rather not say.
JOSH: Donna--
DONNA: Come on, I'll take care of it.
JOSH: Fire the intern.








It Was Moose Sausage, Not The Prints To Los Alamos
Josh's office. Donna enters.

DONNA: Hello.
JOSH: Hello.
DONNA: It's wrong of you to make me fire the intern.
JOSH: I'll fire him.
DONNA: No.
JOSH: Why?
DONNA: First of all, it was moose sausage, not the prints to Los Alamos.
JOSH: And this is the White House, and not Williams-Sonoma.
DONNA: He's an intern, he makes nothing. He has to pay rent.
JOSH: He can't do it this way.
DONNA: And I'll make that clear to him. But he shouldn't be fired. And you know why? Because 20 years ago, 75 per cent of the people who graduated from the Kennedy School of Government took jobs in public service. Last year it was a third. We need these people.
JOSH: All right.
DONNA: Look. When Martha--was it Martha?
JOSH: Yes.
DONNA: When Martha came to you and you thought it was me, you wouldn't give her my name, right?
JOSH: Yes.
DONNA: So let me just--
JOSH: I said all right five minutes ago.
DONNA: I was just underlining my point.
JOSH: Nicely done.
DONNA: Okay, I'm through.
JOSH: Excellent.
