Roger and Bertram are trying to come up with an appropriate obituary for Miss Blankenship; after Roger buzzes for Caroline to ask Joan to join them, Bertram flagellates himself for being unable to come up with anything, and then bitches about how he has no place to "ruminate" since he doesn't have an office. Well, that explains why he's been popping up in random spots like Waldo, but really, what does he do anymore other than hold the hand of aged accounts like Secor? Anyway, Joan comes in and starts capably and efficiently dashing off ideas, but Bertram gets the last word: "She was born in 1898 in a barn. She died on the thirty-seventh floor of a skyscraper. She's an astronaut." It's a lovely sentiment, fanciful though it may be, so it's no wonder that Bertram leaves on that note, although where he's going isn't particularly clear to me. Maybe he'll do me a solid and bother Harry for a while. When he's gone, Roger apologizes for what happened, but even though Joan regards him inscrutably for a good bit, in the end she says she's not actually sorry but she is still married, and so is he. She starts to leave, but he tells her he feels something, and he knows she does too. She doesn't bother denying it, true as it obviously is, but whether it ends up being relevant is something the rest of the season will have to answer.
Don brings a happy Sally into the office, wherein he introduces her to Megan. Sally wonders where Miss Blankenship is, and Megan, without really missing a beat, says she "went away," so she's helping out for a bit. Probably best not to mention that she went to a place where she can do naughty things to Grandpa Gene. Don tells Megan that Betty should be by at five o'clock, and then leaves Sally with Megan for a bit while he goes to get coffee and check in. When he passes by the conference room, Stan grits out his chagrin that now they can't leave, and then Ken tells them Harry said that on the coroner's report, they listed the cause of death as "Don Draper." Honestly, as bad as Don's been this season, I still can't imagine he's even in the same league as Roger in his heyday, or even worse, from what we've heard, Roger's father. But they all chuckle, even Peggy, and then Stan wonders how long ">a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yvette_Mimieux" target="_blank">Yvette Mimieux" will last in the Spinal Tap drummer position, and Ken offers that they should start a pool on whether Megan quits, dies, or is fired. Having worked around boys like this before, I'm surprised such pools aren't in existence already.
