Pete Campbell oversteps the mark when he pitches an idea for ad campaign to the head of Bethlehem Steel without telling Don Draper. Draper wants him fired but learns a lesson in corporate politics. 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."

What'd he do?
While we were busting our asses on the Bethelem Steel account he was at the Regis Hotel pitching copy. His copy!
That little snot!
