"Why do we have to go so soon?" Derek asked while CJ was buckling his seat belt.

"I told you not to say anything about, that Baby Story movie."

"It's a TV show."

"Who cares." CJ walked over and got in the driver's seat. "He can't know."

"Why?"

"Because, there's nothing to know."

"I think there is, or you wouldn't be hiding this so much."

"What?"

"I heard of a case like this on Oprah." Derek said.

"She said that you should tell your mate when you think..."

"No more TV for you." CJ looked over at him. "How old are you anyway? You talk like an adult." CJ asked sarcastically. "Are you a 50 years old trapped in a 10 year old body?" She started the car and started driving home.

"What? No more television?!"

"Well no more talk shows," she said a little too sternly.

"Oh. Okay." He looked down. He didn't know why she kept snapping at him like that. He looked out his window as tears started to fall down his face. He didn't want her to see or hear him crying.

Yet CJ, being the perceptive person that she was, noticed something was wrong and pulled over to the side of the road. She put the car in park and got out and walked over to the back door, the side Derek was on. "Hey, I'm sorry," she said softly as she knelt down to his level. "I didn't mean to snap like that, Derek."

He didn't say anything for a minute. Then, "Why do you hate me so much," he asked, no longer being able to hold the tears back.

"Move over," she said as she helped him unbuckle his seatbelt. She got in the car and sat next to him. "I don't hate you. Not even a little. I love you more than anything," she said as she hugged him.

"You do?" He asked as he wiped his eyes.

"Yes. See, I think that I'm getting those mood swings you get when one is...in the condition that I'm in."

"When are you going to tell dad?"

She sighed, "I don't know how to tell him to be quite honest. Can you think of any ways I can?"

"Well, you could tell him that your with child." He said with a smile.

"Where did you learn that saying?"

"Dr. Phil."

"Who's that?"

"He's on Oprah."

"Ok, no more Oprah." CJ shook her head. "Look, you and me will go to the doctor and have them take the test to see if I should have to tell your father anything."

"Now?"

"Now."

"But Oprah is on in an hour. I was..." Derek started, but was stopped by a glaring CJ.

"Ok, I got you. Let's go to the doctor."

"Ok." CJ smiled and kissed him.

Back at the White House....

"Hey Toby, did you meet with Cashman yet?" Sam came in and dropped some files on his desk.

"No, I'm on my way now to the meeting." Toby said while sitting in his couch."

"Anything wrong?"

"Oh, Derek got in a fight today and he's kicked out of school for three days."

"I'm sorry. Is he ok?"

"Yeah, CJ took him home a little while ago."

"Well, if I can do anything..."

"What's the Baby Story?"

"What?" Sam asked.

"A Baby Story. Have you heard of it?"

"Yeah, it's a show on the Learning Channel I think. My mom watches it all the time."

"What is it?"

"It's just a show that follows a woman and a man who are expecting a baby. Then it shows the woman giving birth. I usually pass out after that part, so I don't know what happens."

"You watch it?"

"My mom does. I was visiting her last weekend and she had it on."

"Ok." Toby looked more confused then ever.

"Why?" Sam asked.

"CJ's been getting sick lately and Derek mentioned it had something to do with A Baby Story, I didn't..." Toby's eyes got wide. "You don't think?"

Sam shrugged, "Maybe, I mean if Derek was talking about that show..."

"Yeah..." Toby's voice trailed off.

"Toby?"

"Hmm?"

"You sort of drifted off there. You okay?"

"I'm...uh...yeah I'm fine. Go back to work."

"Alright, just remember..."

"Yeah, yeah, go away now."

Sam left Toby's office, leaving him to think about what Derek had said earlier. Then he remembered. How was he going to get home? He got one of his pink rubber balls out and threw it at the glass window that separated the two offices.

Sam walked back in. "Oh great, again?"

"Shut up. Listen, is it possible for you go give me a ride home today? CJ took the car when she took Derek."

"Yeah, no problem."

"Thanks."

"Anything else?"

"No, that's all. Go back to work."

Sam left again.

Toby sat in his office, completely shocked. Was she pregnant?
