...to Joan, and take note of the fact he didn't need to look her number up despite the fact that she's only lived in this place since she's been involved with Greg. She's happy to hear his voice, and they commiserate about JFK for a moment before Roger reminds her that Margaret got married that day. "I wish you could have seen it. Oh my God, what a disaster." Hey, in his shoes, I'd be a lot happier with what actually happened than with everyone showing up but Margaret going home unhappy, and Roger at least follows up by admitting that they all pulled through. After a moment, he comments that he can't believe how quiet it is outside, but Joan tells him not everywhere -- Greg got called in to work the night shift at the ER, as life is still going on. Roger says he's glad Greg wasn't home -- he wanted to talk to her. He struggles for words, which is unusual no matter how much he's had to drink, and then blurts out, "Nobody else is saying the right thing about this!" She notes that he's really upset, and suggests it's because there's nothing funny about the situation, which is astute -- the guy who made jokes at a one-footed man's expense has nothing to offer here, and it's bumming him out. They tell each other to hang in there, and then they disconnect. As I said in the recaplet, if Greg goes bye-bye, I'm betting Roger would dump Jane if he thought he could get Joan back, although I wonder if he really can't afford another divorce. And then wouldn't the bitchy shoe be back on the other foot?
Don's in the kitchen making a drink, possibly the next day, while Betty's watching TV -- and screams aloud when she sees Lee Harvey Oswald murdered by Jack Ruby on live TV in front of her very eyes. Regardless of what happened, it's upsetting to see now, so I can only imagine what it was like at the time. Don comes rushing in, and after she tells him what happened, she rhetorically but loudly asks what is going on, and when Don tries to take her arm consolingly, she tells him to leave her alone and exits the room. Sally, drawn by the commotion, asks Don what happened, but after a long, shocked moment, he tells her nothing. Not that I blame him in this instance, but he is just in over his head here.
