Bill is having a meeting with Don in his office, asking him to go over health plan numbers. Don's being businesslike and civil, but it's clear that he still has his doubts about the deal. Might that be because the whole idea is transparently radioactive? Bill tries to smooth things over with Don by presenting him with a little gift. It's a small bronze figurine of Abraham Lincoln, complete with a little stovepipe hat. Bill explains: "He tried to hold things together in a time of great change. He never forgot that he was an imperfect human being, and he knew he couldn't do it alone." Don admits that he still has misgivings about Weber Gaming, but he appreciates the present. Sure, who wouldn't be touched by a memento that serves to constantly remind you that your irritating business partner equates himself with someone on Mount Rushmore? If I were Don, I'd get right online and start looking for bronze figurines of John Wilkes Booth. Sic semper tyrannis, motherfucker.
Margene is at the diner again, and she seems to have struck up a proper friendship with Ana. Well, as proper as a friendship can be between a woman and her secretly-married boyfriend's third wife. Margene's even got Aaron and Lester strapped into booster seats, and I have to say that Lester doesn't look like he approves of the waitress sitting down at the table. If he's anything like M. Small was at that age, he will register his disapproval by leaving most of his lunch on the floor (to be fair, he registered approval the same way, which is why we always tipped very well). Anyway, they're talking about how great Ana's boyfriend is, and how much she likes fooling around with him. Margene looks down as she tells her not to fool around too much, because it wouldn't be right. "You don't want to hurt him," she explains when she recovers her fake objectivity. Margene asks what Ana's looking for in the long run for the relationship. Ana doesn't know yet. If she had been about to speculate, the conversation is cut short when the cook bangs on the pickup rack with his spatula. Ana gets up to go back to work, and suddenly gets the idea that she and Margene should do something fun together, tomorrow. "You're my best friend in Utah," she says, because apparently she just arrived in the country three seconds before the beginning of last week's episode. Margene is touched, and after trying to demur, she decides to accept. Because hell, suddenly Ana is Margene's best friend in Utah as well.
