...and then we cross-fade into what looks like early morning, with Don and Midge lying in bed smoking. Don tells her they should get married, and when Midge laughingly asks if he thinks she'd make a good ex-wife, Don non-seriously tells her he's serious. "What size Cadillac do you take?" Sometimes what's meant as an offhand joke can really give you a window into a person's psyche. Anyway, Midge reminds him: "You know the rules. I don't make plans, and I don't make breakfast." Hmm. I always thought The Rules were a little different, not that they really applied in my situation anyway. Don gets up out of bed, complaining again about his advertiser's block, but Midge somewhat dismissively tells him people love smoking, and nothing's going to change that. Well, there are plenty of people who love to smoke who have quit or cut down tremendously because of the health risks. Were it not for the deleterious effects, I personally would have had so many cigarettes today that I wouldn't even be able to see the screen. Don sighs that there's a kid who walks by and cases his office every day, looking at where he's going to put his plants. Midge smiles and asks if he's handsome. Don gives her a semi-amused, semi-annoyed "Oh, going to trade me in for a younger model, eh?" look, but seriously, Vincent Kartheiser still looks like he's twelve. I know Midge doesn't exactly hesitate to break the law, but come on.
