After Don leaves, Betty pouts about his nerve. But Henry says he's right. Betty returns to her feeble, kids-based excuses. She can't just uproot them from their school and lives without a place to go! What kind of a mother would she be then? "You're not even looking," Henry says. "There's nothing out there," Betty says, "and he doesn't decide." That first part may or may not be true, but obviously it's the second part that is the real reason Betty's still here.
SCDP, the next day. Peggy comes to Don with a Sugarberry ham, both a peace offering and an actual gift from Sugarberry. "They could have just as easily fired us," Don grouses. "But they didn't," Peggy returns, "because they sold more hams." Because she gets RESULTS, you stupid chief! Peggy then invites Don to take credit for the scheme, if he wants to, but Don sticks by his guns: he's not impressed. He doesn't approve of "these kinds of shenanigans," and he guesses she knew that, since she didn't tell him about it. "It was going great," Peggy rationalizes, "until it wasn't." He then asks about the whole fiancé thing. She says he's not, really, but she also chastises Don for calling him out like he did. "You brought him with you because you thought I wouldn't embarrass you," Don correctly intuits. But instead of apologizing, Peggy simply says, "At least I'm thinking ahead." Determined to shame her about something, Don then tells her she needs to start thinking about the image of SCDP. Peggy: "Well, nobody knows about the ham stunt, so our image is pretty much where you left it." OH YES SHE DID. Don immediately lets her know he won't be needing her in the Jantzen presentation. "Now you're being spiteful," she says, though Don chalks it up to not wanting a "girl" in the room with the uptight Jantzen people. "You know something," says Peggy, gearing up to Tell Don Draper How It Is, as she occasionally does, "we are all here because of you. All we want to do is please you."
