As a peppy brass version of "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" plays, after a long pan past a table set up with enough silver mint julep cups to bourbonize the entire actual Kentucky Derby, we see Betty and Don have arrived. Once under the enormous tent, they have a look around, and it's not long before Pete, Trudy, Ken, Harry, and Jennifer have made their way over for a greeting. Pete and Trudy, unsurprisingly given their upbringing, are the most comfortable of the lot in the highbrow situation, but Harry looks like he'd rather be anywhere but there, while Ken is wishing he'd tried harder to get a date. Jennifer, who at least seems at better ease than her husband, eagerly asks when Betty is due, and Betty favors her with an answering smile: "Any minute. Can't you tell?" Heh. Trudy then suggests they tour the place, and takes Betty by the arm and leads her away, significantly not pulling Jennifer along for the ride. As Don lights a smoke, Pete points out a couple of high-powered guests they might want to target for business, but Don merely pats his arm as he walks away: "Don't hand out your card." Probably good advice, but I'd keep an eye on Ken to make sure he's playing fair as well.
