Upstairs, Roger comes in to see Bertram and bitches about the org-chart thing: "I'm being punished for making my job look easy." You just keep telling yourself that, you masculine, well-manicured princess, you. He does admit, however, that MacEndrick has a "spark," and he's a pure account man. Bertram pointedly asks what that job is all about, and then answers his own question: "It's about letting things go so you can get what you want." Roger, not particularly wanting to hear that truth, heads out of the office, but not before Bertram adds some more honesty: "We took their money, and we have to do what they say." And if what they say is that you'll have no responsibilities and can get paid to sit in your office drinking all day without a care in the world? You're just going to have to learn to live with it.
Smitty, Kurt, and that goofball with the thick glasses have an inconsequential talk about the Army, and elsewhere, Peggy pulls Joan aside and endearingly tells her she hopes she doesn't think she never listened to her advice. "It's just...we can't all be you." Aw. Joan smiles and says that she does in fact take some credit for Peggy's success, but their tender moment is interrupted by Smitty taking the Deere out for a spin around the office, Hildy hitching a ride on the back. He pulls it over quickly, and Joan smiles to Peggy that she can't believe she's going to miss this, and in a nice touch, then coughs from the foul exhaust the thing spewed from its pipe. Not the most flattering product-placement moment in history, I'd say. Across the room, we see Lois looking a bit unsteady as she hops aboard the Deere, and then Peggy, soldiering forward on the wings of booze, tells Joan she's really glad she got what she wanted, and she remembers how Joan said she could do the same on her first day there. Meanwhile, Lois doesn't look like she's had much experience behind the wheel. Or if she has, people have suffered for it. Peggy starts to tell Joan something else even more touching, I'm sure, but...OH MY GOD! Holy fucking shit, Lois just RAN OVER MACKENDRICK'S ANKLE! Mother of God! Now THAT is not the most flattering product-placement moment in history. By the way, the event happened with a delicious shot of Harry, Paul, Hildy, and that goofball with the glasses getting sprayed with blood and shredded paper. Awesome. And by the way, now I get what the title was all about, to wit: "...and doesn't walk out." The people who do this show are sick, and God love them for it. Anyway, Lois safely crashes the Deere into an office, while Joan springs into action, unrolling MacEndrick's pant leg and sending Hildy off for the first-aid kit as Peggy literally swoons into Pete's arms and everyone else but Ken, who's at Joan's side, stands around uselessly. MacEndrick is continuing to howl in agony and shock as Smitty reports that an ambulance is on its way. Joan applies the tourniquet with assured hands, which I'm sadly sure would make her husband jealous and not proud. But if SC isn't glad to keep her after this, they are the most ungrateful people on either side of the Atlantic.
