Storyline

It's Labor Day weekend and most of the men are sending their wives away for a few days. Don Draper's wife Betty is dreading the thought, as her father and his new girlfriend, whom she detests, will be staying with them. With the election approaching, the team at Sterling Cooper is gloomy since the Nixon campaign has not been following their advice. Roger Sterling was hoping to spend Friday night with Joan Holloway but having just seen the movie The Apartment (1960), she is feeling a bit used. She plans a night on the town with her old college friend who has some surprising information for her. Don and Roger invite twin sisters from a casting call to join them for a drink but things go badly for Roger who suffers a serious heart attack. After the incident Don ends up spending the night with Rachel Menken where he reveals a lot of his inner self. Written by garykmcd

Several characters discuss the film The Apartment (1960) throughout this episode. The Apartment was directed and co-written by Billy Wilder; this episode's title is evocative of another Billy Wilder film title, The Lost Weekend (1945). See more »

Goofs

When Bertram Cooper asks Joan to help send out telegrams, he dictates names and addresses while she sits at a typewriter typing telegrams to be sent. In real life, telegrams were created either one of two ways: going to the Western Union office and writing the telegram or telephoning Western Union and dictating it. They were not typed out and mailed like postal mail, the way this scene intimates. To be period accurate Joan should have picked up the telephone and read off names of recipients and the body of the message. See more »

Quotes

Roger Sterling: You know what my father used to say? Being with a client is like being in a marriage. Sometimes you get into it for the wrong reasons, and eventually, they hit you in the face.

So this is what makes men
20 November 2018 | by MaCVaLLeYSee all my reviews

As we can see as the series goes by how many layers does the character "Don" has, it's very complex and not easy to analyze at all, we come closer to his backstory and what makes him the man he is, he's very interesting and mysterious, a key factor to the series success, good performance and not from the lead actor but from all the cast which pull you in deeper and deeper to series.
