Lane is trying to break ties with his homeland. That doesn't stop Rebecca from making friends for her and Lane with the Bakers, compatriots from England. Lane does however feel that he can take advantage of this friendship with Edwin Baker by bringing his company's business, Jaguar, into SCDP, as Jaguar is trying to enter the US market. Despite being the sole Brit in the office and thus the logical choice in his own mind to deal with a fellow Brit, Lane has no experience in account management. The process of Lane learning how to become an account manager and him being the reason SCDP gets Jaguar's almost seemingly surefire account makes Lane evaluate his professional life. Meanwhile, Pete is feeling restless in his marriage, one result from which is eying a high school senior in his driver's education class.

Disappointing Episode **
15 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode was a huge disappointment and you want to know why? There was no basic central theme around our assortment of characters.

Don and his wife go to a party that is really benign in itself. The most exciting feature is where Don takes off his shirt to fix a kitchen leak and the hostess points out that country living doesn't have the bakers and the Greenbergs. Perhaps, she should read Laura Z. Hobson's "Gentleman's Agreement."

Our British partner has an opportunity to bring in an account. The head person of that group wants a night of action. The guys go to one but Don refuses to participate.

There is a memorable fight in the office, but what a joke that turns out to be. This is supposed to be a business office, not Madison Square Garden.

The show has to go up after this.
