Joan and Roger are in with an older doctor who snaps at the latter: "What kind of man are you? You've used this woman. And you've ruined her." It's lucky this isn't a tipping profession. Roger tells the guy they came for his discretion, not his judgment, but while that doesn't slow his tirade one bit, he does eventually hook them up with a dude in Morristown who will perform an abortion. Hey, that's closer than Francine's guy!
Don is waiting for him when a puzzled Pete enters his office, but when Don asks if he was aware that they applied for a security clearance to the DOD, his expression changes to pride as he asks if that went through already. Oh, Pete. At Don's "Think for a minute, hotshot" face, though, he realizes what happened and asks why Don filled out the form. When he hears how it happened, he feebly suggests that Don's been fine this long, but Don tells him out of eight answers on the form, three of them are lies, and then recalls that Pete once mentioned he has a friend at the DOD. Pete wonders what the friend is supposed to do, but Don firmly tells him to stop the investigation, or at least to give him some warning. Catching on to that last bit, Pete wonders why he'd want it, getting this response: "You can run the agency without me." And it's not clear whether that's a bluff, the ultimate vote of confidence, or a combination of both, but whatever it is, Pete isn't ready for it and promises he'll look into the matter immediately. After a long, appraising look, Don leaves Pete to it, but when he needs Pete and Betty to join forces to save his life I wonder how much longer he can last like this.
