Connie is constantly calling Don, even in the middle of the night. But the carrot of the entire Hilton account is enough for Don to endure these intrusions on his personal life. Don may ultimately have a black mark with Connie when he does not literally follow through with a thought Connie provides to him. Sal is working on a commercial for Lucky Strike. But an incident with the client, Lee Garner, Jr., may jeopardize not only his position on the account but his position at Sterling Cooper. Sal takes out his frustrations by resorting to his primal urges. At the Draper house, Don and Betty are both preoccupied with their infatuations, Don's with Sally's former teacher Suzanne Farrell, and Betty's with Henry Francis. Both go to extreme measures to progress those infatuations.
Did You Know?
When Don picks up his daughter's teacher while she is out jogging, there is a brief mention on the car radio of the discovery of bodies of two unnamed young Manhattan women - a reference to the real-life "Career Girls Murders" case in which roommates Janice Wylie and Emily Hoffert were stabbed to death in their apartment on August 28, 1963.

Suzanne (Sally's old teacher) is wearing a form-fitting Bowdoin College t-shirt when Don stops her running. Bowdoin (Brunswick, Maine) was an all male college until 1972, and this takes place in 1963. Although conceivable that she got the shirt from a boyfriend, brother or father, it seems unlikely.
