She tells him he needs to destroy the tape because she knows he's going to become the Democratic candidate for president and he'll bring the entire party down with him. Novick says that the tape wouldn't be a difficult item to shelve and they could use it later as currency once they're in the White House.

Kim tells him she wishes he'd turn himself in and he says he'd be in a lot of trouble because he's on probation. Kim tells him she wishes they had met before this and they kiss.
Dan's brother walks in and asks how it went last night. Rick says, "fine." Kim says she'll be leaving now and Dan's brother stops her because he doesn't know who she is, his brother isn't there and the money isn't there. He says that no one leaves before Dan comes back.
