Mad Men 3.5 “The Fog” Recap

madmen2Previously on Mad Men: Don watched Sally’s teacher dance around a maypole and liked it, Peggy gave away Pete’s baby, Grandpa Gene died and Sally was understandably upset, Pete got Freddy Rumsen fired after Freddy pissed his pants and Peggy ended up getting Freddy’s job, Duck Phillips hates Don Draper and got the ax from Sterling Cooper.

Don and Betty visit Sally’s teacher for a conference. Don slides right behind a student’s desk, but Betty is about 11 months pregnant at this point, so Sally’s teacher offers up her chair. Sally got into a fight with the class bruiser at the water fountain, and there’s a quick cut of Sally, disheveled and starring into the camera, wiping a smear of blood across her left cheek. The bruiser didn’t need any stitches or anything, the teacher is mostly just concerned about Sally’s new bad behavior. She innocently asks if anything is going on at home, and finds out Grandpa Gene passed away two weeks ago. The teacher is flustered, and offers her condolences. Betty and Don are somewhat surprised Sally didn’t say anything, but the teacher wonders why they didn’t send word themselves – Sally never even missed a day of school. But when asked if Sally went to the funeral, Betty quickly says, “Why would we put her through that?” Don adds, “I don’t think children belong in graveyards.” The teacher is embarrassed, but realizes now why Sally was asking so many questions about Medgar Evers murder. Betty gets up, saying she needs to use the restroom, and the teacher says they can do this another time, but Betty protests it’s just because of her condition and heads off. Sally’s teacher apologizes again to Don, and says Sally needs more attention, she’s grieving, which is so sad since it should be a happy time. “There is a very special pain to losing someone at that age. I don’t know if you can understand that,” she says. “I can,” Don replies, looking at her steadily. Betty returns, and it’s agreed just to put the matter behind them. “It’s going to be a beautiful summer,” the teacher smiles.

Pryce is going over expense reports. Sal defends his $82 in expenses as Don walks in the conference room. “I signed his receipts, didn’t I?” Don backs him up. Pryce will not be deterred from his penny pinching ways, and begins to address, “The amount of pencils, pens, pads, paper and postage that are currently being consumed suit a company four times our size.” Don’s had enough, and gets up and walks out, just moments after arriving. “It has also been brought to my attention that a credenza has disappeared, a fact that I believe necessitates a conspiracy,” Pryce continues.
