The scene begins with Carl Webb going into a dark room. He wakes up Barry for a little chat. As Barry dons a bathrobe, Carl brings up a nasty rumor going around about Palmer's children. Carl wants to know where it started. Barry denies any knowledge; dirty scandals aren't his department, as he's simply the Senior Domestic Advisor to Hodges. Barry tries to end the conversation, but Carl suddenly brings up Barry's son Steve, who has a full ride to Michigan State for excellent sports skills. Barry demands Carl leave, but Carl intimates that he can ruin Steve's college aspirations very shortly since he knows about the young man's drug problem. Barry grabs the phone to call security, but after a long moment of consideration, puts the phone down to cooperate with Carl and protect his son's reputation.
