I'll Try To Lecture You

Maggie and Jim see each other across the room and smile. Happy times! Personal issues are worked out somewhat and they got it right that Giffords was alive and everyone else was wrong. Also, Giffords was shot in the head and is still, to this day, recovering (as are, probably, the other survivors) and also six other people died. SMILE!

Will tells Charlie and MacKenzie that Leona is going to have to pry this job out of his cold, dead fingers. "I'll fucking tell her!" Charlie says. "I'M NOT FUCKING AROUND, CHARLIE!" Will screams. Charlie screams something back. I can't make it out but it had the word "fuck" in it. MacKenzie, too, would like to swear now. "I'm sorry," she starts because women do horrible things like gossip and cheat and sit under hairdryers. "I FUCKED EVERYTHING UP!" she suddenly screams. "IT'S GONNA BE ALL RIGHT!" Will tells her. Thank god she has a man around to reassure her. Don walks in. "What the fuck is going on?" he wonders. "YOU'RE A FUCKING NEWSMAN, DON! I EVER TELL YOU OTHERWISE, YOU PUNCH ME IN THE FACE!!!" I feel like this is what Sorkin's writers' room looked and sounded like when he was in his heavy coke use days. "We go back in 30," Don shrugs. "Back in 30!" MacKenzie sobs because she has womanly emotions.

The graphics guy takes away the Giffords death screen and exhales in relief. Giffords is still alive. Six other people are not. They don't get death screens.

Neal hands a note to Will, who says he wants to check out Neal's stupid Bigfoot presentation. Because believing in things like Bigfoot and forcing everyone else to listen to it is totally cool but talking shit about reality show contestants is wrong.
