On what criteria is the decision made to intercalate the month?  One of the criteria is that it needs to be done by those who are chosen by the Nasi.  A case is brought where one extra came and Rabban Gamliel asked him to leave.  Shmuel HaKatan, so as not to embarrass the one who did it, took the blame.  From here the gemara digresses to other similar stories.
