  • It's the weekend, but not many are feeling like it will be a relaxing time. Peggy, Paul and Smitty are forced to work to come up with creatives for the Bacardi Rum account. Beyond making their work atmosphere be like a vacation to match the creatives, Paul calls in his old Princeton colleague, Jeffrey Graves, for some chemical inspiration much to the consternation of Olive, Peggy's new officious secretary. Supposedly having a better time are the Drapers, the Campbells, the Cranes, Bertram and Ken, who are attending a garden party hosted by the Sterlings. Don and Betty in particular don't want to be there, they feeling like it is work more than a social outing.
