First camera shot: Peggy and Kelly on the couch, seesawing their legs.

Synopsis: Aspiring model Kelly invents a beguiling maneuver called the "Bundy Bounce" for her first audition - spokes-model for the new Allanté car, but Bud's loose and aspiring lips give the secret to another model. Kelly must take things into her own hands, and "remove" the competition. Meanwhile, Peggy goes on strike because Al thinks she is useless.

Guest cast:
Piper Bowman: Tia Carrere (movie actress)
Miss Beck: Tina Louise ("Ginger" from "Gilligan's Island")
Rochelle Alpert: Debbie (aka Debbe) Dunning
Incense Berkowicz: Joanna Goode
Girl: Wendy Nichols

General note: Kelly starts to model.

References: One car at the car fair room is called "Improta". Richard Improta is MwC's art director.

Kellyisms: "Topeka" and "Eurytrea" instead of "Heureka" (Greek for "I found it").

Goofs: Kelly knocks over the lamp next to the couch. When the camera moves away, you can see the lamp laying down. Nobody of the other actors in the scene go near that lamp, but in a following shot, the lamp is standing on the table again.
