Later, in the car, Don uncharacteristically displays a smoking cough while fiddling with the radio; Betty looks displeased with Don, and eventually asks why he turned down an off-screen invitation to go out to dinner from Hobart and Adele. Don says people like Hobart talk solely about advertising because they have nothing else to say, an answer which mollifies Betty, although I think his real motive was to block any more salesmanship from Hobart on the job offer. Anyway, Betty tells Don about Hobart giving her his card, and Don snarks, "What, did he tell you to put it under my pillow or something?" Jeez, Don, you may be hot and brilliant and all, but I don't see you pulling off the Grace Kelly look. Seriously, though, that comment tells us that he told Betty about the job offer, which frankly kind of surprises me. I wouldn't think that's the kind of thing he'd share with her until he'd made up his mind (although maybe at this point, he thinks he has). Don is smilingly skeptical about the whole thing, but Betty points out that she did once model and asks if she's that wrong for Coke as she cutely gives a model-like artificial smile. Don lets the issue drop: "You're not wrong for anything." Particularly not the cover of Field & Stream, if the end of the episode is any indication. Betty asks if Don is going to go to McCann, and he stares ahead at the road in uncertain silence.
