Lyle Evans M.D. -- I think he had him killed." Oh, my God, too much information! And by that I don't mean I'm squeamish about anything Roger said -- it's just that the information is coming way too fast for my poor brain to process. Miss Blankenship used sex toys with Roger! Bertram is a eunuch! What am I supposed to do with this information? Oh, I know: HA HA HA! And I was at first wondering why Roger brought up Dr. Evans two episodes ago, but then it occurred to me that he was pointing out to Bertram that he himself has held a grudge for quite some time. Of course, he might have also been saying that Bertram's stance on the Japanese meant he had no balls, but I'll choose to believe even Roger isn't quite tasteless enough to intentionally go there to his face. But seriously: No balls! I'd take up Eastern philosophy too, I have to admit. Roger babbles drunkenly for a bit longer before Don clicks the machine off, and Peggy asks why he's laughing: "It's like reading someone's diary!" Honey, I think all but the most sensitive diary-keepers would admit that you just answered your own question. Don, however, explains it to her: "Ida was a hellcat? Cooper lost his balls? Roger's writing a book?" However funny you think the rest of the stuff may or may not be, I think we can all agree that Roger writing memoirs is the single funniest thing that has happened in the history of ever, and as such it's no surprise that Peggy can't stifle a giggle. Don gives her a drink, but she puts on her sullen mask again and says she should go; however, when Don encourages her to open up, she only hesitates for a moment before she complains that she and Mark were supposed to have a romantic candlelit dinner, and instead he invites her mother? "He doesn't know me. It's not my fault." She says she's back to square one, and hilariously and kind of adorably gives a faux-enthusiastic smile about being "Single!" Don: "Well, as Danny would say, there's no use crying over fish in the sea." HA! Poor Danny. This gets a real laugh from Peggy, but moments later she gives a cry of fright as she sees the mouse from before, or at least that's what we all hope. Don looks for it for a while, but it's gone, prompting him to tell Peggy, "There's a way out of this room we don't know about." Peggy doesn't ask him what the hell he's talking about/on, and she's saved from thinking about it by the phone in her office ringing, which she declines to answer. Instead, Don offers to take her out for her birthday...
