As shown in this episode, sometimes it's just a matter of luck rather than skill to be successful. No one bothered to inform Don of the company going public. Would he have acted that way towards Jaguar? Who knows?

In the meantime, Don has landed the prestigious Chevrolet account. Notice how he is always talking about the latter car company.

How ironic that one of the guys meets his father-in-law at a brothel. Wait a minute, before condemning the latter, the former also must have his morals come into question as well.

LBJ has bowed out of the presidential race, and one guy anticipates a Eugene McCarthy presidency, or certainly Robert Kennedy. Are these liberals so self-centered that they conveniently forgot that the Republicans would have Richard Nixon in the race?
