Don's accountant is in with him, and there is way too much going on elsewhere in this episode for me to pay any attention to an exchange with no emotional movement at all, so suffice it to say that we learn Don is has already sold the house in San Pedro and has the one in Ossining on the market before Betty calls and breaks the news about Carla. Don is pissed, not so much on Carla's behalf but because she was supposed to come to California to look after the children as needed. He asks if he can't hire her back for the trip, but Betty ridiculously says she doesn't want her "poisoning the well," and frankly I don't know why Don doesn't just take her anyway, but instead he asks what the hell he's supposed to do, as he'll have three kids on two flights and meetings to attend besides. Betty has the gall to suggest he not take them, then, as "they're used to it," but Don snaps that they're going before slamming the phone down on her. If I were him, I'd call her right back just so I could hang up on her again.
Joyce and an attractive young woman, whom I see was actually once a contestant on America's Next Top Model, head down the hall at SCDP, and when they pass Harry's office, he sticks his head out like Pepe Le Pew when that cat painted like another skunk walked by. The two women enter Peggy's office, and Joyce calls Peggy "Pumpernickel" and tells her there's no one out front, like, I'm surprised that that's not where the Director of Agency Operations' station is. Maybe she's cleaning the toilets at the moment. Joyce then introduces her friend, "Carolyn Jones," and after they sit, Joyce explains that Carolyn, a model, was on a photo shoot for a certain pantyhose when she got fired, and now needs to make rent. Carolyn adds that Joyce witnessed her nervous breakdown at Howard Johnson's earlier that day, and I've never been a viewer of that show but from what I hear it probably was nothing compared to the nervous breakdowns Tyra Banks caused every contestant on her show to suffer.
