This episode is largely about emasculation. Roger Stirling openly criticizes Pete in front of everybody in the office, who then has to undergo the indignity of taking an awful wedding present back. His plan to reinstate his dominance with his wife by buying a gun instead backfires badly. Meanwhile, Stirling makes a play for Don Draper's wife, essentially lording his higher position in the company over his employee. What he doesn't bargain on is Draper's elaborate revenge which involves a liquid lunch, seafood, a stalled lift and some visiting clients which culminates in Stirling vomiting violently in front of them.
