Betty and Don, dressed to the nines, unsteadily enter their bedroom, seemingly having just come from a ceremony at which Don won an award. Apparently jinxes don't affect this show, considering Jon Hamm went on to win a Golden Globe. Don notes that no one wants to look like they care about awards, but Betty giggles that he does, in fact, and Don admits it's true with an "Isn't that sad?" They talk about Roger for a moment before Betty extends her hand to Don, and he tells her "Enchanted," before kissing it. They move in for a smooch but end up hitting foreheads, which is a hilarious touch, and one they both take as a sign to give up and get into bed without any further undressing...
...and then it's five to eight in the morning, and Don and Betty groggily lift their heads, both looking like hell. Do you remember on The Jetsons, how in the age of videophones, people used what they called "morning masks" to hide their scary just-woke-up faces and hair? Tell me 1960 couldn't have used those. Don and Betty barely have time to hack up a lung before their kids start running in, and I know the show takes a pretty dim view of marriage but I didn't expect it to be quite so obvious in its anti-children bent as well. I do give Betty points for her succinct "Shit" at hearing the time, though. Anyway, Ethel is apparently downstairs and making them breakfast, and I expect it from Don, but I have to admire Betty for not hurling on the spot at the mention of food. Sally notices the award, and we learn that both Roger and Don were honored, although we don't hear what for, exactly. I'd guess Best Ad Campaign for Don, and Best Hiring Decision for Roger. Betty, showing that she's got her priorities in order, heads for the Alka-Seltzer. Don: "Just do it in the kitchen. I don't want to hear the bubbles." Don coughs again and closes the bathroom door, and the horseshoe on the award falls off its mount in response. Heh.
Don appears almost human as he enters the office, and if it's still the A.M., I'm certainly impressed. The girl at the front door congratulates him, saying she heard Advertising Age ran a picture of him. Don self-deprecatingly says that fortunately, no one reads it, although if people who look like him keep winning awards, that's bound to change.
Ken has just shown something to Peggy that she terms "amazing," and then when Don appears, Peggy tells him she'll get Pete and Paul.
