After leaving Mona, Roger asks Jane Siegel to marry him, an offer which she accepts. The divorce looks to be a messy proceeding. At the office, Duck wants to make partner, but Roger, being candid, tells him that his performance to date doesn't warrant such a move. Duck decides he has either to be more aggressive in looking for a better job elsewhere or in finding additional business for Sterling Cooper to warrant the partnership. Still at the office, the creative team is talking about the difficult time Paul seems to be having in Mississippi from what they see on the news, the good time that Don and Pete are probably having in Los Angeles, the Right Guard campaign and Bob Dylan.

To me, this is the quintessential episode of Mad Men. Pause the episode at 46:17. Recogize that pose?? This is it...Don! Sure the business place front and center up until now. However, this scene lays the tone for the remaimer of the series. It places its male viewership firmly in the position of Don, which is the primary allure of the show to begin with. Things are looking up for Don at home, however the sexual allure of Joy overcomes Don's reservations.
