This time, Ted remains confident but is much less obnoxious than in his previous appearances; he doesn't tell Peggy how jealous he is of Don, and he appreciates her talent more than Don ever had.
She accepts his offer, which in the season finale has him assigning her a huge amount of material involving an account for cigarettes aimed at female consumers.
Don promotes her to copywriter, and she eventually accepts a copy chief position with Ted Chaough's firm, CGC, only to find herself once again working for Don following a merger.
Peter "Pete" Campbell (Vincent Kartheiser) is an ambitious young account executive whose father-in-law controls the advertising for Clearasil, a Sterling Cooper account.
In the immortal words of Coldplay, every tear after Jon Hamm puts his penis away is a waterfall. Nothing comes between Jon Hamm's penis and its Banana Republic pants. Then it orders an Evan Williams on the rocks, selects the Ramones on the jukebox, sits in the back and doesn't talk to anybody.
She was originally Draper's secretary, but showed surprising talent and initiative, including a knack—similar to Draper's—for understanding the consumer's mind.

Elizabeth "Betty" Francis (née Hofstadt, formerly Draper; January Jones) is the ex-wife of Don Draper (who affectionately called her "Betts," or on occasion "Birdy") and mother of their three children, Sally, Bobby, and Gene.
Her family home was in Elkins Park, Pa., and she graduated from Bryn Mawr College. She is the archetypal dissatisfied 1960s housewife, who dutifully turned her back on her education and professional career (as a model) to become a homemaker.
After obtaining a divorce from Don, she marries Henry Francis and moves to Rye in late 1965.
In "Man with a Plan", Ted's management style is shown to clash with Don's, as the personable Ted tries to involve everyone and get their input, while Don primarily values his own opinion.
