Murray Associates conducts an eavesdropping detection audit and provides a debriefing for James Carville and Mary Matalin. (Executive Producers: George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh, 4:14)
As the show opens, the offices of Bergstrom Lowell are being searched for listening devices.
James Carville and Mary Matalin talk to Kevin D. Murray, a consultant, about increasing their "perimeter security." He points out that none of the offices have locks on the doors, and suggests shredding their garbage and installing a noise masking system to thwart eavesdroppers. When Matalin wonders if they're just being paranoid, Murray tells them to trust their instincts if they feel something is wrong.
Apparently, all these precautions are in response to suspicions about the real-life leak to columnist Robert Novak of the name of a CIA operative.
When rumors start spreading that Matalin may have been the source, Carville tries to persuade her to hire a lawyer. He's worried she'll be subpoenaed, and points out that in Washington, you're "guilty until proven innocent."
At a function, Al Hunt quietly tells Carville that the Justice Department is going to subpoena records from all consulting firms connected to the White House.
Meanwhile, the firm discusses a potential conflict in handling both wind power clients and oil interests. Maggie (Mary McCormack) and Tommy (John Slattery) visit another consultant, Jack Quinn, to see about exchanging clients with him. Tommy has a phone conversation with his dad (Robert Prosky) and it's clear that something terrible has happened to Anna. Tommy is later shown erasing e-mails from Anna from his computer. ~ Josh Ralske, All Movie Guide
