Résumé court : Betty rend visite à son père malade. Sheila, la petite amie de Paul, tente de le convaincre de faire son devoir civique.

La mère de Pete désapprouve une idée que Trudy et son fils envisagent.

Plus de détails

Pete and Paul prepare for an aerospace convention in California. Don tells them that every engineer, scientist, and general will be there "trying to figure out how to put a man on the moon. Or blow up Moscow, whichever one costs more." The two should engage congressmen and promote Sterling Cooper's ability to help their districts land aerospace contracts.

That night, Trudy lobbies Pete to let her accompany him to California (which he nixes) and to consider adoption. "It's someone else's child," Pete objects. "It's not natural."

Betty calls Don at his hotel. Her father, Gene, has had a stroke. The two arrive at his house the next morning to find him confused; at one point Gene mistakes Betty for her dead mother.

At the office, Ken mentions Paul's California trip to Sheila which surprises Sheila because she and Paul had plans to register black voters in Mississippi. "Are you scared?" she asks. "Don't pretend it's not scary," he replies.

Pete and his brother, Bud, examine documents that reveal how thoroughly their father squandered their inheritance. "How long can she afford to live?" jokes Pete about his mother before slipping in a crack about Hitchcockââ'¬â"¢s film Rope. He later tells Bud about Trudy's desire to adopt.

Back at her dad's house, Betty complains to her brother, William, about Gloria, their stepmother. As the child "who cared enough not to move away," he says he appreciates Gloria for taking on caregiving burdens he would otherwise have to. Gene accuses Don of not appreciating Betty, later complaining that Don "has no people. You can't trust a person like that."

Pete visits his mother, who threatens to disinherit him if he adopts a child, repeating his father's description of adoption as "pulling from the discards." Pete retorts that her "husband spent everything you had. Spent it with strangers," forcing Bud to come clean about their mother's financial state.

Betty and Don stay over at her father's house, Don on the floor beside her bed. She joins him in the middle of the night and they make love. The next morning, as Betty clears her dad's breakfast plate, Gene thinks Betty is his late wife and suggestively asks, "Now that you've fed me, why don't we go upstairs?"

"I don't know how much more of this I can take," Betty later tells Viola, the family's longtime maid. Viola comforts her but advises that her duty now is to her own husband and children.

Back at the Draper house, Don says he's going upstairs to take a shower. Betty tells him he should leave. She needs him, Don protests. "Why?" she asks. "Nothing's changed." They were "just pretending" at her father's house.

Don arrives at the office during a baby shower for Harry. The gifts include Pampers and Lucky Strikes. Joan accompanies Don to his office, where he says he will be going to California, not Paul. He instructs her to send Paul a memo about the change of plans, but she heads back to the party and informs him in front of everyone. Paul calls Sheila to say he's reconsidered: He'll go to Mississippi "arm in arm with you and make a stand."

Pete tells Peggy he's nervous about flying for the first time since his father's death in the jet crash. Statistically speaking, he's unlikely to perish, she says. Pete blurts out that he hates his mother and, though Peggy doesn't catch his drift, alludes to his mother's objections to adoption. "Everything's so easy for you," he muses to Peggy. "It's not easy for anyone, Pete," she replies.

Betty discovers Glen Bishop in the backyard playhouse. He's been there a few days, he says, having run away from home because his mother doesn't care about him. After a shower, he enters the kitchen wearing one of Donââ'¬â"¢s T-shirts.

Later, Glen takes Betty's hand, saying, "I came to rescue you." He has money, and they can flee together. Their conversation is interrupted when Sally and Bobby arrive, after which Betty calls Glen's mother. "I hate you," Glen says to Betty as his mother takes him away.

On a bus to Mississippi, Paul tells the mostly black passengers that from a purely Marxist perspective the markets dictate a colorblind society. "The consumer has no color," he maintains.

Helen Bishop drops by Betty's house to reprimand Betty. Betty replies that nothing happened; Glen is just lonely because Helen is too busy to give him enough attention. Helen admits that she's been a less than perfect mother.

Betty tells Helen that Don isn't living at the house anymore. "I don't even know," she responds when asked if her marriage is over. "Sometimes I think I'll float away if Don isn't holding me down." The hardest part about divorce, Helen contends, "is realizing you're in charge."
