Dick talks with William Quandt, one of the people at Camp David, about what that event taught him about how enemies can work together and find a solution. The memory gives him confidence in Egypt in the important days ahead. (View Asmaa Mahfouz's speech on YouTube.)

Marilu talks with Dick about her adventures out West, and how a split made her more whole.
