...before Roger's back on the gurney. Joan leads Mona into the area but hangs back, not that you'd expect any less of her, while Mona goes to Roger's side. I guess since Roger hasn't been drinking, there was no need for Don to slap him and tell him his wife's name again. Don instead laments that this whole idea was stupid (as was strongly suggested in the earlier scene with Don and Bertram, I think we can be clear that the whole thing was Bertram's idea, probably backed up by Roger), and he offers Mona some sincere condolences and then accompanies the gurney to the elevator. Mona then rounds on Bertram: "I used to think you couldn't put a value on a human life. But I never asked Bert Cooper, did I?" I really don't know how the air temperature is holding on to the heat this episode. Mona tells him to go to hell, and stalks off, leaving him to tell Lee that Don has everything under control. Lee's not so sure, pointedly saying that while he has a family business, he's not an autocrat, and he has a board to which he has to answer. "We all like Don Draper. But if I was you, I'd find some way to show him that you all do too." What, like letting him take Rachel to Israel on the company dime?
