...but it's not just Bertram, as Roger and Duck are still in there with him, and after Roger mentions that the Mohawk guy is an unbelievable poker player, they give Don the news that American might be looking for a new ad house. Given the fact that Don was consoling Pete not five minutes ago, it's not surprising that he's aghast, at least for him, and he bites out, "You'll have to forgive me for not looking at a bunch of bodies in Jamaica Bay and seeing the opportunity." It doesn't take long for him and Duck to get into an argument, with Duck of the opinion that they could land a much more lucrative account if they got rid of their "conflict" by dropping Mohawk, and Don contending that Mohawk is a good client and warrants loyalty: "They don't deserve to be thrown out the door for a wink from American." The argument remains unresolved, and Don withdraws. When he's gone, Roger opines, "He'll be fine." He's already fine, Roger. But if you think he's going to willingly come around to Duck's way of thinking, that highball you just polished off isn't among your first ten of the day.
The Campbell family has gathered together, and Pete's mom worries that Pete's absent brother Bud won't remember everything that needs to be taken care of. She then gets all squirrelly about a small pink clay elephant on the mantelpiece, and insists that Trudy take it. Bud then enters and, off to the side, informs Pete that their father was insolvent, and as for their mother's money, the Dyckman Trust "isn't as solid as one would hope," as their father took out a number of loans against it. Pete wonders how he could have spent so much money, and Bud sighs that he asked someone who's presumably a family friend if there was a woman, and he said no. "It's all oysters, travel, and club memberships." Well, if there wasn't another woman, I don't know what all the oysters were for. Pete asks if their mother knows, and Bud snarks that if he wants to tell her, he can feel free. Mother Campbell says that Father used to refer to his sons as "Salt and Pepper." Trudy opines to "Dot" that that's beautiful, and I'd offer a reaction to that if Bud and Pete's "WTF?" side-eyes didn't perfectly do it for me.
