Peggy, smoking her cigarette with extreme prejudice, brings it around to another of her pet peeves as she says she "just saved this company" (I'll let her have that), but it's not as important as getting married, "again." Joan counters that she just got a promotion that's a title and no money, "and if they poured champagne it must have been while I was pushing the mail cart." Aw. Peggy, still scandalized, notes that a pretty face comes along and everything goes out the window, and I can't really describe it but she's brilliantly letting her body language be far less controlled right than usual right now, but Joan tells her she learned long ago not to get all her satisfaction from this job. And then, the most awesome thing happens, as Peggy takes a moment and then bites out, "That's bullshit!" and they both dissolve into giggles. I tell you what, I'll take Don's ill-advised marriage any day if it means weekly closed-door bitch sessions with Peggy and Joan. Hell, I'll take electroshock therapy for that.
Oh, dear. It's time for Don's call to Faye, and I find this painful to watch so I'm going to power through it: She hopes for the best by telling him she was worried he was ill, but when he tells her he needs to talk to her and she shouldn't come by the office, she knows what's up. She at first agrees to meet him for coffee, but then thinks better of it and tells him just to get to it now. He takes a moment and then informs her he met someone and they're engaged, and she of course can't believe any of it but especially not that last part, considering she was still staying over at his house less than a week earlier. She inquires as to who it is, but he asks what the difference is, which should clue her in that she knows the person, because the answer is always "No one you know" when true.
He adds that he fell in love and didn't mean for it to happen, and Faye has been very important to him, and Faye snits, "So you're not going to put an ad in The New York Times saying you never liked me?" HA! She's got an even better line coming up, but I had forgotten about that one. Speaking of which: "Well, I hope you're very happy. And I hope she knows you only like the beginnings of things!" I guess Don's too "in love" to realize how accurately she just skewered him there, but when things with Megan go south I hope he remembers that. She hangs up on him and cries, and it's sad, and then Megan comes in, having seen the light on his phone line go off, and he assures her it's done. She stands over him and tells him she loves him, and then her incisors descend from her face and impale him right where he sits. This episode is just full of surprises!
