Don gets home, and after being greeted by Bobby, is informed by Betty that Carlton and Francine are coming over to play cards. Also, she made him a ham sandwich, and all I can say is that it's really not fair that Mama Cass is still alive. I have enough trouble coming up with jokes without being hamstrung by stupid things like linear time.
Later, Sally brings Don a drink, and I'm not easily offended but the fact that he disapproves of how she made it is really a little much, and the fact that Carlton, of all people, plays good cop here sort of makes my point for me. Don sends her off to "take Mommy and Francine's orders" and shoos Bobby off to watch TV. Carlton muses that the kids are growing like weeds, and tells Don that they have "the Carruthers girl" over to babysit already. He gets skeevy about the uniforms she and her classmates used to wear, and Don replies, "I'm enjoying the story so far, but I have a feeling it's not going to end well." Words this series lives by. Carlton complains that everything he does rubs Francine the wrong way. Here's an idea: Stop being a disgusting lech and see if that helps. Sally then returns with an order for "two Tom Collins," and Don tells her how to make them.
Peggy, vacuum still in hand, shows up at an apartment that just so happens to belong to her mother, who's seated at her kitchen table with Peggy's older sister Anita. Mother and Anita both have Brooklyn accents, but it's the mention of church that really seems to make Peggy uncomfortable. After Mother Olson tells Peggy to light a candle for her father, she leaves, and Anita lets Peggy know that their mother tells people at church that Peggy goes to Mass in Wilkes-Barre. She's not going to fit in on this show if that's her idea of a believable lie. Anita goes on that their mother isn't going to be around forever, and asks if it would kill Peggy to go. Peggy counters that she doesn't want to, and she's capable of making her own decisions. Anita: "Really. The State of New York didn't think so. The doctors didn't think so." I guess we're to conclude that Peggy's despair over her new son was merely the beginning of a downward mental spiral. I'll also conclude this: That was cold, Anita. Mother returns and asks if Peggy returned the vacuum and emptied the bag, and Peggy tells her she did indeed.
