...but at another door, it's a drunken Pete knocking. Even the exterior doesn't seem nearly nice enough to be his fiancée's place, so it makes more sense when we find out that it's Peggy's apartment, as her roommate answers the door. When Pete asks for Peggy, the roommate goes to get her, and Pete tries to keep from teetering over. It seems a little odd that Pete had the wherewithal to track Peggy down, but all he really would have needed to get her address from Information back in those days was her full name, and I can believe that she told it to him in the off-screen conversation they must have had when Pete first showed up at Don's office. "Marjorie" is wary of the fact that Pete smells like the Bowery, but Peggy tells her it's okay and steps out into the hall and closes the door. Peggy's very much into this, perhaps surprisingly, but that eleven bucks a month has to start going to use sometime. Pete says he's getting married on Sunday, and supposes that Peggy must think he's a creep. You'd think so, wouldn't you? She asks why he's there, probably already knowing the answer but enjoying this part of the dance, and he steps forward and breathes that he wanted to see her tonight. Of course, that's probably the gin talking. Or the vodka, tequila, or whiskey. She asks, "Me?" prompting him to state that he had to see her. We switch to a longer shot as Peggy, never taking her eyes from Pete, opens the door and calls to Marjorie that she's going to bed. But not alone, as she leads Pete inside. That may be a little unexpected, but I'm more thrown by the fact that Pete made it all the way up the stairs without falling and breaking his neck.
