Betty Draper rekindles her interest in modeling after Hobart suggests she should try it. She doesn't realize it's all part of the strategy to get Don on board. Peggy Olsen is fretting over her weight gain but doesn't appreciate Joan's advice about getting ahead in the office. The ad team tries to counter the advertising coming out of the Kennedy campaign. Pete Campbell comes up with an idea to keep Kennedy's image off TV in key States. Written by
Did You Know?
Don and Betty attend a performance of the Broadway musical "Fiorello!" and run into Jim Hobart (head of the rival ad agency McCann Erickson) and his wife. Before Betty meets Don in the lobby, Don and the Hobarts all insult the musical, but then Betty approaches and obliviously praises it ("I like this show. Very gay songs"), which makes her seem unsophisticated and naive in front of the other three. Ironically, though, Betty actually has the more sophisticated and informed opinion of "Fiorello!," which turned out to be not only a critical and commercial hit but was also one of the very few musicals ever to win a Pulitzer Prize for Drama (as of 2016, there have still been only nine musicals that have ever won Pulitzers since the Drama prize was first given in 1918).

The Drapers and the Hobarths are shown enjoying alcohol during intermission of the Broadway show "Fiorello!" but Broadway theaters did not sell alcohol in 1960. Concessions at Broadway theaters at the time were very limited and, until bars were installed in the early 1970s, the commonly available beverage was an off-brand orange drink sold in a carton.
