At Sterling Cooper, financial officer Layne Price from the parent British office and his personal secretary John Hooker have been brought in to do some housecleaning. The British way of doing business is foreign to most of those at Sterling Cooper. One-third of the staff is being let go, including Head of Accounts, Burt Peterson. In Burt's old position, Layne installs Pete, much to his relief and excitement. But his excitement is short lived when he learns he will be sharing the job with Ken. They are told in coded language that one of the two will emerge as the sole person in the position based on performance.

Quotes

Lane Pryce: London Fog. How ludicrous.
Don Draper: Really. I have one.
Bertram Cooper: So do I.
Lane Pryce: No, of course. It's just the name. There is no fog in London. There is no London fog.
Bertram Cooper: Are you sure about that?
Lane Pryce: Quite. Never was. It was the coal dust from the industrial era. Charles Dickens and whatnot.

I'm a new fan by the way. Since I quit smoking myself back in 1965, camels non-filtered, I do get a bit nauseous with all the smoking going on especially in elevators and on the plane. Can't find a listing in the cast for the character of the Stewardess "Shelly" if that's the character's name or for that matter, the other stew and the airline pilot. Having once worked in a corporate environment (investment banking and trust and estates) in New York many years ago, I do find the machinations of the characters somewhat apt, however I never experienced anything quite as blatantly cutthroat as the competition between the new "Heads of Accounts." Having flown a fair amount back in the mid-late 60's while still in college I appreciate the mise en scene of the airplane and the dialogue with the stews. It's somewhat nostalgia inducing.
