Pete's wife wants to buy a Manhattan apartment but he has to approach his cold and distant parents for a loan. Pete's in-laws, however, are more forthcoming. Written by

Pete and Trudy's new apartment is at Park Ave. and 82nd. At the end, Pete looks out the apartment window on a view of Central Park that is impossible from that location. He's looking from the top of the Park, directly south, as though he's on 110th (or higher) between 5th Ave. and 8th Ave. (which encompass the width of the Park). With this impossible view, Pete takes in a nighttime skyline that includes the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building; this is the New York equivalent of "all windows in Paris look out on the Eiffel Tower."

[Don Draper pours a drink
I bet daily friendship with that bottle attracts more people to advertising than any salary you could dream of.
That's why I got in.
So enjoy it.
I'm doing my best here.
No, you're not. You don't know how to drink. Your whole generation, you drink for the wrong reasons. My generation we drink because it's good. Because it feels better than unbuttoning your collar. Because we deserve it. We drink because it's what men do.
Lyrics by Lorenz Hart
Music by Richard Rodgers
Performed by Ella Fitzgerald
