For Lack of Better Words

Popping his head into his wife's office, Jed found it empty. Not really sure if this was a good thing, or not, Jed turned around and began to walk away. As he was halfway down the hall, he heard his wife talking to her secretary behind him.
Turning around once again, Jed found Abbey, with her back towards Jed. Using this to his advantage, Jed quietly snuck up behind his wife, having a finger placed over his lips, to keep her secretary quiet.
Picking Abbey up, with one very swift move, Jed carried her into her office and shut and locked the door.
"If you want to live to take another breath, you will put me down right now, Josiah Thomas Bartlet!" Abbey shouted.
Conceding to her demands, Jed carefully put Abbey down, on to her feet. Immediately, Abbey tried to take off for the door and get out of her office. She was still very pissed at him, and this just made things worse. Not wanting a huge fight, when they both knew that she was right, Abbey knew that she just had to get out of there...
Why didn't Jed know that?...
Blocking the doorway with his body, Jed said, "No! You aren't going anywhere. Not until we talk." Jed took his wife, and spinned her until her back was facing him. Marching her over to the couch, he sat her down. "Abbey..."
"I won't publicly apologize. I refuse to do it, Jed. I'm right, you know it, they know it."
"Jed, you can't ask me to do this. It would be compromising everything I have stood for in the past few months."
"Will you please expand your vocabulary, Jed?"
"That's not what I meant."
"Tell you what, you do this for me, and I'll do something nice for you and one of your causes."
"Such as?" Abbey asked as she rested her head into his chest, forgetting all about how she was so thoroughly pissed at him just minutes ago.
"You name it, you got it." Jed smiled as he planted a kiss on top of her head.
"Even child labor?"
"You said anything. I choose child labor." Abbey said as she turned around and began to kiss him passionately, denying him the chance of speech.
