Sally is telling Glen about a flying dream she had, and she nonchalantly tells him it felt like she was going to heaven, "except I don't believe in it." Even world-weary Glen is thrown by that one, but Sally says she's only bothered when she thinks about death being for, you know, forever. "Like the Land O'Lakes butter has that Indian girl sitting holding a box, and it has a picture of her on it holding a box, with a picture of her on it holding a box." I cannot believe this conversation is occurring in the sixties and acid isn't involved. Anyway, Glen smiles as he admits she just freaked him out a little, and then Sally takes off with the promise that she'll save her Fritos for him. Aw, cute! And I never thought I'd say that about a scene involving Glen!
Don's having a drink in his office when Pete barges in, having ignored Megan on the way. Don tells her it's all right, and after she's closed the door, Pete tells him that Morris only agreed to the meeting with them to leverage a better deal with Burnett. Don doesn't know why Pete is bothering clarifying the method in which they just got fucked, so Pete gets to his real point, which is that he doesn't know why he's "being punished" (I assume he's referring to the fifty grand) for being practically the only one with any accounts left. Less heatedly, he confesses that he doesn't have the money, but Don tells him he's doing everything he can. "Get me in a room." Megan then buzzes that Peggy is there, and after she and Pete trade places, she tells Don that all the employees are waiting in the conference room, as they didn't know if they should leave or what, but Don replies that it doesn't much matter what they do at the moment. Peggy asks what he thinks of SCDP changing their name, invoking his advice to Caldecott Farms, but Don tells her it's pointless - they have no new direction in which to go, and they can't do anything anyway because they're Creative, "the least important most important thing there is." Dismayed by his feelings of powerlessness and pessimism, Peggy leaves without another word, and I notice that Don is not exactly charging anyone with stopping him drinking today. Fair enough, not handing out fool's errands in this environment.
Pete arrives home, and Trudy greets him with the news that the bank called about a loan application. Pete is none too pleased that they called his home, and with good reason, as Trudy has jumped to conclusions, thinking that he intends to buy them a house in Greenwich. However, Pete's "none too pleased" pales in comparison to Trudy's "lividly disappointed," as when he tells her about the price it's going to take for him to remain partner, she expressly forbids him to put in any more money, even adding that he'd better not even think of asking her father for it. And given that her diatribe includes awesomely dismissive statements like "When you bet big and lose, you don't double down!" and "You'll lose your stateroom on the Titanic?", I think we need to get Trudy mad more often.
