Roger is wearing some busy red Hawaiian shirt with the names of a bunch of islands and stereotypical illustrations; as bombed as he is, he's definitely looking like a South Pacific version of spring break. He babbles to an appreciative (or at least indulgent) Scarlett about the genius of Pearl Harbor and I didn't think he had any sense of humor about the Japanese, but this could be thanks to the magic of LSD yet again. Joan emerges from her office and rather archly suggests that Roger keep it down and Roger takes an invitation that isn't there and follows Joan in. Joan claims that she couldn't care less about his blatant hitting on other women, but her tone obviously suggests otherwise and her mood doesn't improve when Roger assures her that it's okay -- Jane's not going to take everything. From here, we learn that Joan has refused Roger's offers to take financial care of Kevin through college, as she thinks that it's better this way for him. "And if you're not careful, you won't even be a family friend." Roger starts to tell her he had an experience and Joan's response of "I know, Roger," makes it official that the writing staff likes poking fun at Roger's LSD evangelism as much as I like recapping it. Roger slurs that the point is they made a baby, but Joan brings it back around to how much she doesn't care by pointing in Scarlett's direction with her eyebrows and icily countering, "And now it's some other lucky girl's turn." I don't think this is all about Roger, given what's to come -- I think she's just over men at the moment. But, as usual, he's not helping.
