Betty has gained some weight, which she can't shed for whatever reason, which in turn is making her depressed. Or is her depression the cause of emotional eating which is reason for her weight gain? Going to see a doctor for a prescription for diet pills, the doctor instead finds a growth on her thyroid, which may be cancerous and which may be the cause of her weight gain.

This is a passage from Numbers 6:24-26. This prayer also has a mid-1960s pop-culture connection: the prayer sometimes has an accompanying hand gesture, and it was that gesture that a very young Leonard Nimoy saw in his childhood synagogue and years later adopted as the "Vulcan salute" on "Star Trek." Later in the fifth season of "Mad Men," Kinsey tries to write a spec script for "Star Trek." See more
