Because of Don's excessive drinking, Megan said "You have to pull back the throttle" and further added "Please try and sleep it off" She then made her way out the door to Probably make Don feel a little guilty to get him out of his comfort zone which was to drink as much as he could.
Who Killed Kenny?
Good ol' Kenny who was out hunting when a gunshot was heard after which he was on the ground. Now who could have possibly killed Kenny? any Guesses?
Brilliant way to get people at the edge of their seats during the start of the episode, Don't you think?
Don's lethargic way of life

An icing on the cake was when Don tried to change channels and saw Megan on her Soap Opera, Don immediately changed the channel because of his hatred of what Megan does.
Sally's Interest in Boarding School

You found a hooker who takes travelers' checks?"
It was then revealed that Sunkist wanted to hire sterling, cooper and partners.
Megan and Don's Movie Date
Megan and Don then went for a movie to see Rosemary's baby. Yes, out of all the movies this one is all they could think of sigh!
Apparently the movie was not the only horror they had to face as they ran into Peggy and Ted. Don's eyes were stuck on Peggy and Ted.
Commenting on the movie, Megan said "I would never live in an apartment like that." Seriously, with so many ghosts around, who would?
Don't worry, Kenny is OK
The next scene of Mad Men 16/06/2013 revealed that Kenny was ok and was just shot in the eye while hunting with the folks from Chevy...Looks like someone was up for some mischief. Kenny was really stressed with the Chevy guys as well as because he was expecting the arrival of his baby.
Moving on, Roger and Don met Ted and Jim, Jim said "Great Caesar's Ghost," when he heard good news about the Sunkist deal. Ted on the other hand was being more professional about things as he reminded everyone about the possibility of a conflict of interest in the whole idea. He said, "Why don't we just call our clients and tell them to expect a knife in their back."
A meeting about the Chevy account resulted in the partners deciding to give the account to Pete and Bob. After the meeting Pete said to bob "I don't want to work with you, and i don't want to stay in a hotel with you. You're sick." Bob's denial on knee gate incident angered Pete even more.
Betty was then trying to figure out why Sally was so interested in going to the boarding school all of a sudden while Pete was trying to get through to Duck who was a head hunter to try to lure Bob into another firm. Bob was then seen on the phone yelling in Spanish about Pete.
A hilarious scene then followed where Don Draper was supposed to make baby Noises as he was asked to play a part of the baby and so he does.
