Downstairs, Peggy and Karen are returning from lunch, and I don't remember if this is the first definite confirmation that they ended up moving in together, but here we are. Peggy's complaining about the place they went to, saying she could have eaten and even had a drink at her desk for less money, which (a) that seems kind of rude, as the implication could be taken that Karen's company isn't worth shit, and (b) you'd think she'd be happy enough to get out of the unheated office, no? Karen doesn't take it badly, though, merely joking that she's sorry she's not as "stimulating a lunch companion" as "Doug," which answers the question of whether Peggy's still getting, um, professionally ridden. Peggy corrects Karen on the name before adding that she works most lunches, and Karen decides to let someone else call Peggy on that bullshit, which you won't mind me telling you is going to work out splendidly. She does mention that she dislikes Duck's aftershave, but then sighs that she doesn't know why she's even weighing in on men, given her recent luck. Peggy replies that it's good that she's being picky, hilariously adding "finally" to that thought with no break in tempo, and Karen replies that the only men out there right now are married. "We can't all throw caution to the wind." Peggy corrects Karen's assumption, saying Duck's not married, and Karen's surprised: "Then why are you with him?" HA! I don't know if she's referring to the exciting danger of dating a married man, or the fact that you can get sex in that situation without any annoying commitment issues getting in the way, but whatever it is, Elisabeth Moss's loss for a response could mean my death of giggling. The door opens, and after Pete glowers his way off, the girls take their leave of each other, since as you might remember Karen works on the first floor. She is missing out on the chance to meet eligible men in the elevator, but life is never going to be perfect.
