The four conspirators emerge from the office, and Don informs Allison that Pryce has requested an SC-wide memo -- the office will be closed that weekend and all work suspended for carpet cleaning. If Allison wonders exactly what could be so wrong with the carpet that it necessitated a meeting of the senior partners, she keeps it to herself, and then Don asks her to get Pete on the line for him. She tells him, however, that Pete didn't come in, so he has her call his home, as it's important. He then barks, "Peggy! My office!" Speaking of pitches that need polishing from the get-go. Peggy opens her door and asks Allison what she should bring, making me laugh, and when Allison just shrugs, Peggy heads into Don's office. She starts to talk about Western Union and the fact that they have no art, but Don gets right into it -- SC is being sold, he's starting a new agency, and he needs her there Sunday evening to get her things and help collect whatever accounts they end up taking. You may have noticed that he didn't actually ask her to come with him, and you're not the only one, because after Peggy inquires who's going and gets another snotty response in reply, she notes that he just assumes that she'll do whatever he says. "Just follow you, like some nervous poodle." Heh.
