Ken is enthusiastic about the job and is sure he'll get it. The girls refuse to make any bags until Mike agrees to pay them a bonus as they designed the bags in the first place. Mike worries that he'll lose the deal and agrees to pay the girls. Phyllis is furious to discover that Chalkie has had a letter from Craig.
