First I have to say,

"I don’t know why I’m calling and embracing myself".

gatz, you are delivering the best typos this season! <3

Yeah, this was a very strong episode. I agree with what you guys have said.

- Yes, Roger walked on and stole the show in that one scene.

- LOVED Don walking out. It's weird, we're having this situation IRL at my company where a good friend of mine, who is an absolute rainmaker, is being harrassed by our accounting person because he's not filling out expense reports properly and mis-managing his vacation bank. And I'm like, "Fucking give him all of MY vacation you idiot, STOP HARRASSING THE GENIUS." Sorry, that scene just really...resonated with me. :-)

- I did know Miss Farrell would be back and in Don's life, so I'm happy to see her. :-)

- Loved the way Hobart (?) took a shine to Don. Don going around pwning people right and left supports his character so well, and it makes me happy.

- Yeah, gatz, I liked Betty's lines while she was in the delivery room too.

- I also liked Peggy touching the little booty on the gift and talking about Betty's third child. "It must be old hat by now."

- The Medgar Evers thing threw me for a nanosecond, only because that guy did not look like Medgar Evers, IMO. But yeah, he would be the unfortunate metaphor for Betty's mom's message. I loved a line in that scene, I just can't remember it. Something about her being a house cat and important and having little to do, so she should be happy.

Question: Why did Hobart look funny when Don saw him in the hallway with his wife? I totally didn't get that.

That baby's gonna be "Scott Draper" sooner or later. Nobody in my class was ever named "Gene." We had lots of Scotts.

Heh-heh. :-) Art imitates life. Sorry for your friend!

You did call that. It's true. :-)

Good question. Somebody I read on Monday suggested that he's embarrassed at having given so much of himself to a stranger. So it was like a walk of shame without sex. Sort of. ;-)

- I also liked Peggy touching the little booty on the gift and talking about Betty's third child. "It must be old hat by now."
Yes! I liked that, too. I thought I picked up some regret, some sadness at what she didn't get to experience by giving her baby away. Did you guys get that vibe?

I wasn't sure, either, but I had thought that perhaps things didn't go perfectly well after all? Like, maybe they were leaving without a baby? But I'm probably wrong, he was probably just wheeling her down to see the baby.
