Peggy's working late when Ginzo turns up. No sooner has he taken off his ear-flap hat when he blabs to Peggy about doing some work for Roger and I know you told Roger you couldn't keep a secret, guy, but that wasn't exactly an unbreakable vow there. At least look ten percent guilty about it. Ginzo doesn't notice Peggy staring quizzical daggers at his back as he goes on that Roger wants something to make him look smart at the meeting. Peggy: "And he asked you?" Heh. But Ginzo's unfazed, saying that he has gifts and is grateful and Peggy's like, I'm working way too late to deal with your bullshit, thanks. I wonder if she's being cavalier because she thinks Roger lowballed Ginzo. Given Roger's belief in Jewish stereotypes, it's not an unreasonable supposition.
Don wakes up to a ringing phone and a note from Megan saying she went to get bagels; when he answers, it's Pete, his fury undiminished by the fact that he's still in his pajamas. You see, that stinking NYT reporter didn't mention SCDP at all, so Pete waits while Don wearily trudges into the living room to look at the paper. Don's not exactly thrilled, but he's not nearly as bent out of shape about it as Pete is, prompting Pete to snit that that's the problem here. Don, anger subbing in for coffee, yells that the guy was supposed to be Pete's best friend: "Don't wake me up and then throw your failures in my face!" Hey, Don got to bellow into the phone after all! This commotion has lured the kids out of their rooms and when Don hangs up in a huff it's too late for Sally to retreat, as Don orders her to come over while sending the boys back from whence they came. After some heated words about Megan, Don apologizes for what happened, but informs her that since she claims not to be a little girl anymore, she needs to realize that Betty doesn't care about hurting Sally if it means she succeeds in hurting him and Megan. This doesn't penetrate Sally's snotty attitude, so Don explains that he and Anna were friends who got married "because of a law" ("that I broke," he does not add) and he would have told Sally about her, but she died. Sally perceptively asks if the house in California belonged to Anna. "The one who called you 'Dick'?" Don lets that sit for a moment before affirming it and adding that he really wishes Sally had gotten to meet her and then adds that "an adult" would apologize to Megan and Sally immediately concedes the point. He sends Sally off to hang up the phone in his room, which leaves him to contemplate the fact that he's told a lot of people how shit is for having been awake for all of five minutes.
