^^ yes, and since he'd never had any nurturing in his life, it's pretty sad that the only time it happens it's so brief and immediately followed by rape.

I wondered why the working girl would even want to have sex with this 14 year old kid? Maybe because all the other men she encounters are the same and this was entertaining for her? It seems like she might have a dead kid (photo on the mirror) but if anything that would make it weirder. Strangest. Mad. Men. Ever.
It might be the only way she knew how to show affection.

As for other aspects of the episode:

Man don's whole Madonna/whore complex was brought fully to bear in this episode wasn't it?

Am I the only one who thinks that Ted reminds him of Rob Petrie on the Dick Van Dyke show?

Was that supposed to be the same 'dr feel good' who supposedly was shooting up Jack Kennedy back when he was president? The symptoms that Don manifested seemed similar to the anecdote of what happened to Kennedy when he got the shot ( ie a Secret Service nightmare).

Hamm's acting in this episode was some of the Best I've seen on the series. It was a telling recreation of an annoying intoxicated or stoned person but when necessary he brought a level of gravitas to the performance that most people would not think to bring to this type of role in this type of episode. And his fly being down after the conversation with Peggy about soup was a really nice touch.

Anyone else wondering if Megan's cheating On Don with the producer?

The song 'going out of my head' might of been a little too on the nose for the episode.

'Maybe we're different'. That line cracked me up. Totally align that a horny and desperate guy would use.

I was a little creeped out by the fact that Wendy the I Ching hippie chick did not look much older than Sally but I have a feeling she probably wasn't

Normally I detest Betty but I've got to say she was 100% on the nose with this episode except perhaps for the reference to a casting couch but even then I'm not so sure she wasn't wrong (see comment above)

Hamm IS Batman.
