Glen calls the Francis residence, but no one answers. Meanwhile, in the city, the party is getting underway, with ham and bad Christmas music on tap for everyone. The Cranes and Campbells discuss their Christmas plans before Jane, obviously referring to that girl Bethany with whom she set Don up, asks him if he's spending the holiday (he claims he's going to Acapulco) with anyone special, and he somewhat apologetically says no. Peggy then appears with the fetus, and since Don remembers him and not Phoebe I must re-ascertain that he is off his game something fierce.
Elsewhere, a bunch of crotchety types (Bertram is among them, as you might guess) are decrying the perils of socialism, but when Dr. Miller catches sight of Don, she perks up. Joan then gets everyone's attention, and not just by the red dress with the ribbon she's wearing that Roger specifically requested, and tells them that it's time -- "Man your battle stations!" Again, where Lee Jr. is concerned, she's saying a mouthful. Also, Roger asks where Greg is, and Joan casually replies, "Saving lives." I don't know what she's covering up here, but I have this feeling that Greg's in a VA paraplegic hospital somewhere. Just playing a hunch, said hunch being informed by how horribly depressing this show can be. Anyway, Lee Jr. soon appears, wearing a fur-lined overcoat, and again, I wonder if this is another subtle hint that he's queening out a bit these days. I suppose it could just be really cold outside, but if I were Adorable Joey I'd keep a wary eye on him at all times. Anyway, Lee Jr. is his typical blowhardy self as he tells "Red" that he's been drinking all day, and as she leads him away, all the male principals exchange a "What a surprise" look.
Glen and some cohort of his break into the Francis residence and start vandalizing the place with eggs and other random food. I'd prefer they targeted Francis himself, but it's a start.
