Among those who are depressed about their lives are Megan, Pete and Beth. Beyond getting what she believes are obscene phone calls, Megan is feeling that her acting career is going nowhere, especially after being duped by an unscrupulous agency who filmed a screen test for her. She feels she gets little support from her visiting mother, Marie, and Don. She uses a request from her acting friend Emily to what she hopes will be her own advantage, but she will need some help from Don to achieve her end goal, which he may not be willing to provide. Pete is still restless in his life, even more so when he sees Beth again, this time with Howard on the commuter train. He learns from Beth to where she is going which is directly related to her own depression. Her ultimate destination continues the vicious cycle which is her life.

The movie theatre where Don runs into Peggy is showing Casino Royale (1967) - the Ian Fleming 'James Bond' novel that the Broccolis did not have the film rights to and was made into a comedic feature film. This is evident from the distinctive Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass score. Meanwhile, the closing of the episode is accompanied by 'You Only Live Twice' - the theme song to the 5th Bond film - Broccoli produced - of the franchise, also released in 1967. 1967 is widely considered to be the zenith of Bond (and secret agent / spy) 'fever'in popular culture.

Not one thing you said was true. No dinner, no chaperone, no conversation.
Stop being so demure; you are already on the bed.
