Joan meets with Wayne Barnes and says Ken asked her to take his place at their meeting. She convinces him to at least hear her out. He wants to move all of the company's advertising in-house to save money. Joan says that SCDP's relationship with Butler Footwear is important and thinks they have more value than Wayne realizes. He has to leave but agrees to hold off on his recommendation until he can meet with Ken.

Megan returns home with Don and shows him what she's done with the place. He thinks the place is too far away from town but she likes it.

Pete shows Don around his one-bedroom apartment. Bonnie Whiteside, a real estate agent, shows up and Pete introduces them. She's helping Pete find a new place to live. Bonnie hands Don a card and suggests that he call her when he's done commuting from Megan's place in the hills.

Joan stops by Professor Podolsky's office to discuss her client and Wayne's desires to cut costs. She needs a technical argument to counter him and asks if she can pay him with money, but he asks her about the difference between fees and commissions.

Don returns home for dinner with Megan. Shortly after he gets there, two men deliver a television set. She doesn't want one because all of her friends are struggling. He's not in town long, though, so she doesn't think it's worth fighting over. Later that night, he suggests they celebrate. She didn't think he wanted to but she gets undressed anyway. In bed she admits that she feels nervous about everything. The next morning, she asks how much longer they have together. He's taking the red eye later and says he has to go back to work.

Roger meets with Margaret and asks why she wanted to meet with him. She only wanted to see him and says she forgives him. He jokes about it but insists that she's serious about forgiving him for everything.

Roger returns home and lays down in the bed he shares with his girlfriend and another man.

On Don's flight home he sits next to a woman who doesn't enjoy flying. They hit it off and the woman reveals that her husband died a year ago. She went to the hospital with him and thought he was getting better. The doctor told her he only had one year left to live. Don comforts her as she falls asleep. They wake up leaning against each other. The woman says his wife wouldn't like this but he says that she knows he's a terrible husband. He thought this marriage would work out and says his wife knows about him. The woman says she could make him feel better and offers him a ride when the land. He declines and says he has to get back to work.

At work, Peggy attempts to pitch Lou Avery a few more ideas for Accutron. He isn't interested in any of them and says he must be immune to her charms.

Joan asks Clara, Ken's secretary, to let Ken know that she wants to speak to him about Butler. Clara congratulates her because Mr. Butler is coming in this week. Joan goes into Ken's office and asks Clara to get Wayne Barnes on the line. She asks Wayne about the meeting he has already set up. Joan convinces him that doing the advertising work in-house will be bad for his company. He asks what he should do and she tells him to say the meeting was cancelled. Wayne still wants to meet with Ken and Joan agrees to set the meeting up.

Stan confronts Peggy about her wanting to look for more ideas for Accutron. She thinks Lou will change his mind when he sees the artwork but Stan disagrees. Peggy feels she's the only one working there who actually cares.

Freddy visits Don at his apartment. He says that Peggy loved Don's idea about Accutron. Don's been feeding ideas to Freddy. No one has called Don but he's still being paid. Freddy warns that Don doesn't want to be damaged goods.
