God, don't you hate it when they have re-runs..I mean, when you've already missed every single wednesday night activity to watch the West Wing and then they give you old ones?!!! Guess I'm just gonna have to depend on the archive for my weekly dose. <Cat

P.S...you're probably wondering where Toby is, and I actually forgot about him in Wild Nights 1 and 2..so let's just say he's off in Bermuda for vacations.


CJ was sprawled on the couch with an ice pack on the gowing bump on her head. Sam was sitting on the arm chair while Mallory rubbed the back of his neck.

"God, my head's pounding," CJ said while Danny kissed her to try to ease her pain.

"I think I pulled a neck muscle," Sam complained.

"Don't worry, I'm a doctor!"

Abbey rushed down as CJ and Danny quickly disentangled and she licked her lips.

"Uh, we're great! Cured, fine! Wow, I can feel my neck getting better," Sam lied.

"No, no, no, no. CJ and Sam, stay right there....or I'll call Jed and ask for some facts."

"No! I mean, ok," CJ answered.

Abbey nodded as she raised the ice pack from on top CJ's head and shook her own head.

"That is gonna look black and blue in the morning," she said, "and there's nothing I can do about it except get you a skiing lesson and some asprins."

"Great," CJ answered as she took the ice pack and put it back on her head.

"And you, Samuel," Abbey said while walking over to him.

"Did you stretch?"

Sam shook his head no as Mrs. Bartlet rubbed his neck muscles searching for something.

"Well, you spend most of your time hunched over a desk writing, don't you think you should've stretched?"


"Nothing I can do for you either, except tell you to always stretch before doing sports."

"Ok," he said, as Mal continued to massage his neck muscles.

"Thank you Mrs. Bartlet," CJ and Sam said as she walked back up the stairs.



Danny and Mallory left CJ and Sam to cope alone in the living as they both rummaged through the bathroom to find asprins for their loved ones.

"You know, they're taking a long time," CJ casually announced to Sam.

"Yeah, and they were in a hurry to get there."


Both stared at each other before coming to a concensus and dashing to the bathroom to see what they were up to.

CJ opened the door slightlyto find both of them on their hands and knees with their heads in the cabinet under the sink.

"Uh-huh. Yeah. There. Lower. There Danny!"

"Excuse me!"

Sam tried to calm himself down as they both popped their heads out form the cabinet and stood up.

"Wh-what," Danny stuttered.


"Mallory? What were you and- and Danny doing?"

"Sam, it's obvious what they were doing," CJ put in before dashing out the bathroom and running upstairs to her room.

Danny stood dazed before following CJ upstairs.


Josh walked down the stairs after watching CJ storm up with tears as Danny followed her.

"What was that?"

"She saw Danny and me in the bathroom," Mallory said.

"You and Danny?!"

Josh's expression turned to shock and disbelief.

"No! We were looking for asprins for Sam and her in the cabinet under the sink...long story."

"Oh. Well, I had a great nap," he said yawning as he pulled a deck of cards from his pocket.

"And I'm now ready to suck all of your money out of your pockets," he said while Sam, Mallory and Donna sorrounded him.

"Poker. Deuces wild, 7 card, peek."

"Okey-dokey," Josh said beginning to deal.



"Can I come in," Danny asked as he stood outside the door.


"CJ, you didn't see what you think-"

"I saw exactly what I think!" she answered as as thrusted the door open.

"Thank you," he said smiling.

"Listen up, fish boy, I've always gotten hurt, and I seriously thought that you would be the person who wouldn't do that to me! Why did you, Danny?"

CJ took a breath as she sat down on the bed.

"CJ, we were looking for asprin in the cabinet. Mallory could see where my hands where and I could reach that far. She was telling me where the bottle was. CJ, I would never hurt you, you know that," he said sitting next to her on the bed.

"Danny, I'm- I'm- so sorry. I've just always gotten hurt, you know how I am. I run, that's my philosophy. I'm sorry for thinking you would do that to me."

"So we're ok," he said smiling.

"Yeah, we're great."

Danny took her hand as he smiled and kissed her.

"Thank you," she said.

"No problem. Anytime you need me to kiss you, just yell."

CJ smiled again as he pushed her down on the bed.

"I love you," he told her.

"I love you too, Danny."


"Damn it!"

Leo grinned as he rose up from his chair to take the money in the pot.

"How come Leo always wins," Sam asked Mal.

"He cheats."

"I do not!"

"Call CJ and Danny down, CJ always knows when someone's lying."




CJ sat up on the bed as she heard her name. Danny continued to kiss her softly on her neck as she listened to who was calling her.

"Danny. We should go down."

"Uh-huh. Yeah," he said while he moved from her neck to her lips.

"Danny...mmm...Danny! Let's go down."

"Ok, ok," he said getting off the bed and smoothing down his t-shirt.

CJ thanked him as she was about to walk out the door.

"CJ," he said.


"Come here."

Cj shook her head as Danny led her to a mirror.

"Oh god," she said noting her make-up smeared all over her face.

She walked to the bathroom as Danny helped her wash her face.

"There," he said looking her over.

"Wait. You missed a spot," he said leaning in to kiss her.



Josh tapped his foot against the table.

"Josh, stop. Go up and see if they've worked it out," Mallory said.

"Ok, ok."

Josh stood and walked upstairs to their room. He found the door open so he knocked softly and looked around.

"God. CJ?"

He walked into the bedroom and noticed the bed looked as if someone had jumped on it and saw items on the floor.

"Uh-oh. This looks like a bad fight," he said about to enter the bathroom.


Josh swung the door open as he looked in and saw CJ and Danny kissing.

"Oh, come on. We've been calling you forever. We need to know if Leo's been cheating."

CJ softly pushed Danny away and looked confused.

"Cheating in what?"


Her eyes lit up as she smiled, grabbed Danny's hand and dragged him downstairs.


"Who decided to play poker and not tell me," CJ asked as she walked downstairs.

"Well, it was Josh, and we didn't think you were up to playing."

"Come on Sam, I'm always up for playing. Besides, I'm the only one in this room who knows where Leo and the President keep the alcohol in this room," she grinned.

"Leo's right there," Mal said pointing to her father who was on the floor grabbing his money that Sam had thrown after losing.

"Oh. Well, he didn't give you it, so, here I am."

Danny and Josh jogged down as CJ reached over the fridge and was able to grasp the bottle of Jack Daniel's.

"Told you so. And even if Leo had known, he couldn't reach it."

"Whatever, just come here and play," Danny said.



"I'll, uh, s-see your 5 and bet 10," CJ stuttered.

"Well, I-'m, I'm out."

Josh, CJ, and Leo sat playing while Sam, Mal, Danny and Donna were stretched out on various couches and arm chairs.

"See, I love this. I love that when you two get drunk and still play cards, me, being sober, always win."

Leo showed his cards as CJ hit the table with her fist at her losing.

"Ok, ok. Well, we'll see if you survive after I-I deal next," Josh said.

"What is happening here?"

President Bartlet and Mrs. Bartlet walked down the stairs to find the trio playing cards and the rest asleep.

"We're just playing cards, Abbey. Well, I'm just taking their money."

"Leo, you should be ashamed of yourself."

"Hey, just trying to buy that new suit I saw."

"H-Hi Mr. President," CJ said asJosh waved.

"CJ, what on earth are you doing playing cards drunk with Leo?"

"I honestly d-don't know."

Abbey shook her head as CJ held her head in her hands.

"I think I should go to bed," she said standing up and trying to walk.

"Yes," Leo answered, just holding on to one of her arms before she almost fell.

"You should try and get the rest of these people up into bed," he said while passing by the President.


Bartlet scratched his head as he thought of an idea.

"I'll be a moment," he said going to the kitchen.

He came back holding a plant 'mist sprayer' that was full of cold water.

"Watch this."

He casually walked up onto everyone and sprayed them with water, and slowly they would wake-up.

"Wait, watch this, Sam," he said to his groggy deputy communications director.

Bartlet walked up onto Danny and unscrewed the top and merely poured the remaining water on to his face.

Danny jumped up to the cold water as he noticed the President's practical joke.

"That was for all of those mean-spirited articles in November, Daniel."

"Yes, sir," was all he could say before rushing up to his room.



CJ awoke in the bed and noticed her monstrous head ache and the chest where her nose was buried in.


CJ looked up at the red-head and noticed he was awake.

"Could you get up and grab me a bottle of-"

Danny gasped at CJ's head.


"Well, you have this big blue bruise on your forehead."

"Oh, God," she said, quickly sitting up.

"Ok, that was to fast, and now I'm gonna be sick."

CJ paced herself to the bathroom before she recycled what she had for dinner last night. Danny patted her back as he knew how bad her hangovers could get.

"You stayed up after I went to sleep on the couch didn't you," he asked while she washed her face.

"Well, I dozed off with you on the couch for a bit then I kept on playing poker."

"Uh-huh," he said as she examined her bump in the mirror.

Danny smiled as he saw her squint to see herself.


"Nothing, I just like it when you squint."

"Uh-huh, no wonder you like to hide my glasses all the time," she grinned before popping an asprin into her mouth.

"This is gonna be a great day," he said, looking her over.

"Oh yeah, I love hangovers and a flight back home," she said sarcastically.

"I knew you did."
