Notes: I really tried to keep this a work in progress, but I'm already done with it. Except for one small thing, adding the lyrics to the song I managed to include. Something I forgot to do in the first two parts, was to thank Dallas and Batman for their help with ideas. And Chelle, for proofing the first little bit.

"Roni, I called them. They said it should be no problem to do that." Sam said as Roni walked into his office.

"Really? Great! So, phase one and two are complete." Roni said with an evil grin on her face.

"What was the first phase?"

"The call you made."

"And the second one?"

"The second one. That was me making mom think that I will be arriving late, and leaving early."

"You didn't?!" Sam asked in disbelief.

"Yeah, I did."

"Well that's just mean."

"Yeah, but it was a lot of fun watching her try to fumble around."

"I have this eerie feeling that the two of you are talking about me." Toby said as he walked towards the President and the First Lady.

"Toby! Just the person I wanted to see. What are you doing in the next few hours?"

"Rewriting all the speeches that Sam wrote. Why?"

"That can wait. I have a special assignment for you."

"Sir, I would rather just rewrite the speeches. Couldn't Sam or Josh do this special assignment?"

"They could, but you are the one that walked into my office when this special assignment was being created. Therefore, you get to do it."

"What is it, sir?"

"Roni has decided that she will not be joining the party right away. And when she does show up, she thinks that she will be leaving shortly after. Now, to get my wife to relax, I need someone to tail Roni, and make sure she shows up at this party, on time."

"Why don't you just have the secret service do this, sir? They already tail her."

"Well, I think it wouldn't be wise to let Roni get out of the White House, cause from there, it'll be harder to get her to come back. And the secret service have no control over that, you could."

"So, we were thinking if you could give Roni something to do in your office, where you can watch her. Something that will take a couple of hours, we'd appreciate it, Toby." Abbey chimed in.

Right around then, Mrs. Landingham entered, "Excuse me Mr. President, Mrs. Bartlet, Roni is here."

"Send her in, would you?" Jed responded as he invited Toby to sit down.

When Roni walked in the room she got an evil look from Toby, and smiles from her parents, "Okay, what's going on in here?"

"Roni, just the person we were looking for." Jed walked to his daughter and kissed her on the cheek.

"This doesn't sound good." Roni said as she walked to the couches.

"Would you like to help Toby write a speech?"

"Would I like to?" Roni repeated after her father.

"Yeah."

"I think I'd rather pass. Besides, I have some things to do...which is probably why you are wanting me to do this."
