Don, Joan, and Pete come into Roger's office, where he and Bertram are already waiting. Roger feeds them a cock-and-bull story about the "reasons" "expressed" to him on his "trip," and then laughs when he hears about David Montgomery, like, are they doing a Dexter-esque thing by making Roger more and more unlikable so we won't miss him when he's dead? I mean, I don't know anything, but I've seen speculation everywhere this week that they're setting Roger up to kill himself, and given how this entire season has been shoving what a waste of space he is in his face, I suppose I can see why.
Roger wanted Lucky Strike all to himself, and Don, despite his words about Glo-Coat earlier, adds that Pete would never have let this happen. Fascinating, isn't it, that Pete and Don seem so solid these days that they can say anything to each other and still maintain mutual trust and respect. Roger tries to play the victim by saying he only even agreed to start SCDP out of friendship, but it's obvious now that Don was only interested in the account, and I barely have the strength to note that it's not even worth analyzing the merits, or lack thereof, of that statement if he doesn't even have the respect to come clean about what really happened with Garner. Roger tells them all to get out and "go chase a hearse," but just then Megan interrupts, and as they're not in the conference room, she's allowed to have good news - Trudy just delivered a girl. Everyone, with the disgustingly predictable exception of Roger, congratulates Pete, and after Joan gives Roger a look that's equal parts pity and disapproval, everyone leaves to go to the meeting. However, with Bertram bringing up the rear, Roger asks where the hell Don gets off, prompting Bertram to turn back: "Lee Garner Jr. never took you seriously because you never took yourself seriously." I enjoyed that more on second viewing, I'm not going to lie to you.
