In this episode Pete Campbell (Vincent Kartheiser), a young executive at the ad agency Sterling Cooper, returns a wedding gift, a chip and dip, and exchanges it for a rifle. His wife gets mad at him as the gift was from her aunt. In this scene Pete goes back to his office with the rifle and is sitting on his couch, thinking. Peggy, a secretary, walks in and Pete asks her if she's ever been hunting. Then in this monologue, he tells her of the times he went hunting with his uncle in New Hampshire, and then confesses that what he really would have wanted to do with his prey, after having hunted it down, is drag it to a cabin in the woods, hang it up, cut it open, drain it, cut a loin out of the side and then bring it to a woman who would cook it for him...

|PETE CAMPBELL: "You ever been hunting, Peggy?...I went a couple of times with my uncle. New Hampshire. It's an incredible sensation. You have to be very quiet. Take it down with the first shot or you scare it away. And sometimes you have to go up and finish it off. Then you tie it to the bumper and you go home. But you know what I've always wanted to do? I would pick it up, throw its back to my shoulder....."|
