Paul presents a list of "ideas" to Lois (hey, she didn't get fired either! Once was enough, I guess) as Ken and Harry watch and guffaw. Remember of course that (a) Peggy was mean to Lois, at least from the latter's perspective, and (b) the boys have interacted with Lois before, so their choice of prankster is eminently logical. Cut to Peggy answering her phone (her private line, I'm guessing) as "Margaret," which is the name she put in the ad. Lois, making her delivery sound a little younger, introduces herself as a twenty-two-year old named "Elaine," who has a good job and is interested in a roommate. Peggy's pleased at first, but gets less so when "Elaine" goes on that she works in a tannery around animal carcasses all day, so she doesn't have pets. "The smell makes them go crazy." The boys are cracking up, and as easily pleased as they are I still have to admit this is hilarious to watch, with Elisabeth Moss's reactions being one of the best parts, as usual. Peggy tries to extricate herself from the suddenly grim conversation, but "Elaine" plows on, saying she has to find a place near a hospital, as her face is badly burned and she needs "frequent prescriptions for unguents and salves." Hee. Peggy is getting more and more flustered, but catches on when Lois starts talking about how she's going to need some help with the bathroom and loses it altogether in the middle, immediately joined in peals of laughter by the boys. Peggy's offended dignity causes her to stand, and she's like, "You know what? You're a jerk!" Language like that will help fight off all the rapists.
