The Gallileo V probe is scheduled to land on Mars, and NASA has set up live TV coverage featuring the President. Satellite photographs show a suspicious-looking fire at what the Russians implausibly call an "oil refinery". Leo asks Toby and Josh to decide who should be featured on the next stamp. Sam and C.J. accompany the President to a concert at the Kennedy Center which will also be attended by people they are hoping to avoid for personal reasons. Toby and C.J. disagree over whether a report of the President disliking green beans will turn into a major issue or not. Written by

An Icelandic name finishing in "dottir" is a woman's name (men's names end in "son"), so the Ambassador can't be a he. (In addition, Vigdis is a female forename) See more
Leo, ask me how long a Martian day is.
