Don, for his part, rushes out of his office like it's on fire and asks Megan if he was contacted by the DOD, and she has to tell him that yes, there was a form she filled out and he signed. Over his obvious consternation, she produces a copy and tells him it's all standard stuff that's on his employment record, but when that fails to calm him down, she tells him he's totally right and she'd understand if he wants to fire her. But even though everyone else in the office has perked up to see if "fired" is going to win Ken's pool, Don's mind has moved on, and he tells Megan to inform him as soon as Pete returns from lunch before leaving her to wonder from which unexpected direction the next storm is going to approach. Inside his office, Don goes straight for his bar but ends up staring into space without drinking, and even with his recent forays into sobriety I still think this means he's rather out of sorts.
Toni, in normal clothes, comes down the stairs at the Playboy Club and is surprised to find Pryce The Younger there. He tells her about Nigel not coming, and she calls him "baby" and expresses sympathy but chastises him for all the public familiarity, adding that she could lose her job because of it. He apologizes, but she's not really mad, and he goes on that he loves her. "My chocolate bunny." I wouldn't have thought I'd find Pryce The Younger using any term of affection, much less "chocolate bunny," to be cute, but what can I say, Jared Harris is a great addition to this cast. Toni tells him she loves him too, but when he tells her he just wanted his father to meet her, she proves we see eye-to-eye at least on some things by opining, "Well, that was a silly way to do it." She adds that she doesn't know why he's asking for trouble, presumably referring to the difference in their skin color, but Pryce The Younger tells her she's in his life, and he wants his father to know why he's staying. With all due respect to Toni, it does seem like they're somewhat conveniently dropping both of Pryce's love for New York and his job here in order to upsell Toni's importance, but it's not like I doubt his feelings are genuine or anything, and after he tells her he'll phone, he looks after her lovingly as she exits.
Joan and Roger are in with an older doctor who snaps at the latter: "What kind of man are you? You've used this woman. And you've ruined her." It's lucky this isn't a tipping profession. Roger tells the guy they came for his discretion, not his judgment, but while that doesn't slow his tirade one bit, he does eventually hook them up with a dude in Morristown who will perform an abortion. Hey, that's closer than Francine's guy!
