A new telephone receptionist, Lois Saddler, takes a liking to Salvatore Romano but his own interests seem to lie elsewhere. Don Draper gets an unexpected bonus from Bert Cooper and wants to take Midge on a surprise trip to Paris. She seems too involved with her beatnik friends however.

In a flashback scene the hobo shows young Don (Dick) some hobo "codes". He
draws one that looks like two W's and says "That means watch out for the nasty
dog." The camera cuts to his face as he speaks, then back to a different set of W's as he continues. See more
Listen, I'm not here to tell you about Jesus. You already know about Jesus. He either lives in your heart or he doesn't. Every woman wants choices, but in the end, none wants to be one of a hundred in a box. She's unique. She makes the choices and she's chosen him. She wants to tell the world he's MINE. He belongs to ME, not you. She marks her man with her lips. He's her possession. You've given the gift of total ownership.
