...and then the song kicks back up as in the present, Anna opens her front door and warmly embraces him. When she invites him in, we see that the music is coming from a young boy plinking away on the piano. When he's done, Don applauds, and then Anna introduces "Teddy" and "Dick." Teddy tells Don the title of the song, and Don replies, "It's scary." Teddy grins and says he knows, but before we have time to wonder whether this kid is meeting his dad for the first time, we learn that Anna is merely his piano teacher, as she sends him on his way with a lollipop. Oh, Anna -- haven't you heard? It's all about Popsicles these days! When Teddy's gone, Anna smiles broadly at Don and notes he's tan, and asks if he's there on vacation. He shows an easy familiarity I'm not sure we've ever seen from him before as he takes a seat next to her on the piano bench and tells her he's actually out on business. Of course, that's debatable, but I suppose the fact that he's not outright lying says something about this woman as well. Anna asks if he's just staying the day, and he confesses he didn't even think about it before endearingly asking if he can take a shower and lie down. She tells him he can, of course, and rubs his back affectionately. The fact that he receives it, that he's willing not to dominate this person, is truly noteworthy. Of course, California is known for chilling people out.
