Faye and Sally are sitting on the couch watching television, and if I were Faye I'd be thanking the Lord above for the miracle of that invention, when Don arrives home. Faye tells him it was fine -- they watched TV, and "one of us took a nap." Heh. Don asks if she wants to stay, but his offer of "You're gonna need to eat" is not particularly romantic, not that he's in a position to slobber all over her at the moment with his child there. Besides which, Faye surely does not want to be present for whatever disciplinary hearing is upcoming, so, true or not, she cites previous dinner plans and heads for the door. Before she's gone, however, Don thanks her, and she says she was glad she could help before raising her voice to tell Sally good night. Sally returns the sentiment, even smiling at her, and Faye, you may not have felt comfortable taking care of her but if you knew this kid you'd be aware that you did just fine. When she's gone, Sally asks if they can order a pizza, but before he entertains dinner requests, Don tells Sally to promise him that she's never going to pull a stunt like that again. Sally promises, so Don heads into the other room, perhaps to call for dinner. Too bad Faye didn't stay -- she could probably have hooked him up with some awesome pizza. And free candy for dessert!
Roger and Joan are in what appears to be a diner, and Joan wonders why they always used to go here: "The clientele is older than I remember." Well, that's a good sign. It's when they're younger than you remember that you're in trouble. Roger asks why she never talks to him, and when she replies that Greg doesn't like it, he points out that she had to know him being shipped off was a possibility when he signed up. Joan, with a trace of bitterness, admits she wasn't consulted there, but guesses that Roger doesn't tell Jane about all his decisions either. "She's the woman behind the man, isn't she?" Not that signing up for potential wartime duty is remotely the same thing as whatever petty things Roger may hide from Jane, but Joan's merely needling him playfully, and he smiles before asking if she's listened to his memoirs. She tells him she just has them transcribed and then recycles the tapes, so there's the answer as to how Don got his hands on the, um, Dr. Lyle Evans section, and when he asks if she isn't a little curious if there's a chapter about her, she warns, "There better not be." Heh. But I'm pretty sure if he were going to mention her, we wouldn't have been subject to his thoughts and feelings about vanilla ice cream, and he sort of agrees with me by telling her that's the problem: "Every time I look back, all the good stuff was with you." Joan enjoys that admission, much as she tries not to, and this emboldens him to apologize "if" he keeps "pestering" her, and even though he can't help himself, he doesn't expect anything to happen, and she replies that she appreciates that. Well, they seem to have reached an understanding!
