Anyway, Megan and Don appear, and since Joyce is the Number One Fan in the Megan Calvet Appreciation Club, she calls Megan over to look at the photos as Don tells her he'll see her later. Mistaking his farewell as intended for the whole group (or not), Ginzo calls out in his crest-the-ridge voice that he'll see Don later, and Don's answering facial expression should be next to the dictionary entry for "Not if I see you first." As Megan checks them out, Joyce speculates that this story will make the next cover, as they've covered the riots already and there have already been five that summer. "I say it's better than even money Mr. Luce finds a tasteful way to do this." No one asks how that might be possible, but this is enough to get Ginzo to bark at her to put the photos away, as the way they're all excited by them is disgusting, but Joyce is unfazed, and says that one girl survived to tell the tale, with Stan adding that she hid under the bed, and Speck (the real-life murderer, not actually mentioned in the episode) lost count. Ginzo gets up and leaves, calling them "sickos" in his Sonny-from-Dog Day Afternoon voice, and when he's gone, Peggy admits that he's right. And I agree, but if Ginzo is that offended by inappropriate jokes about tragic crimes, it's a good thing he lives in the pre-Twitter era.
A shot from inside Joan's oven shows her kneeling down to retrieve some baked good she's making, but when she gets it out, she complains to her mother that it's not even set. Gail replies that she told Joan the gas jets were clogged, and offers to go to the bakery, but Joan also says they need to pick up some Schaefer for Greg, and wonders if they have time. Gail thinks the Number One priority is for her to clear Kevin out by noon so Joan and Greg can, um, run into each other, which he's going to want to do right away even if he claims he wants to meet his son. Joan complains that Gail is making her very anxious, but Gail, drawing on her experience, tells her it's okay -- things are going to be unfamiliar for them both. "And who knows what he's seen, who knows what he's done." Joan points out that he was a surgeon and wasn't in combat, as if tending to people with war wounds is a psychological walk in the park, but Gail's going in another direction, saying that things happen when men are away. And I never thought Greg was the most convincing heterosexual, but again, different path, as Joan opines that Gail can talk about men in general, but she knows this "is all about Daddy." Gail won't be deterred from imparting her wisdom, though, as she urgently tells Joan that even if he hasn't been with other women, he won't be used to listening to a woman, and while I don't think that was ever his forte, given events to come it's hard to think she doesn't have a point. Joan sighs and says she knows it's going to be difficult for Greg, which is why she wants to start with him seeing his son, and Gail gets that and agrees to go get the cake. If I can insert my opinion, I think you shouldn't forget the beer either, Gail.
