The general scuttlebutt within the Madison Avenue advertising world is that Ted Chaough is the next Don Draper, and that Ted's firm, Cutler Gleason & Chaough (CG&C), is stealing all the accounts from Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce (SCDP), the latest being Clearasil. Although not quite the truth, the perception that CG&C is the up and coming ad agency may make life tougher for an already struggling SCDP. Pete has connections for what may be the next big account up for grabs, Honda Motorcycles, worth $3 million in potential billings. Don wants everyone dealing with the account at SCDP to brush up on their Japanese etiquette as the leg up for the firm in nabbing the account. Ted lets Don know that CG&C is also in the running for the lucrative business. Everyone in the know in the ad world seems to want the account, except for Roger, who has strong remembrances of his time in the last world war. When Roger makes a move that may jeopardize the account before they even get it, Don comes up ...

Roger's negative, WWII-based reaction to the prospect of doing business with a Japanese company is a reference to Jerry Della Femina's seminal 1970 memoir about the 1960s advertising industry, From Those Wonderful Folks Who Gave You Pearl Harbor: Front Line Dispatches from the Advertising War, which was a major influence on "Mad Men." Della Femina's book title came from a meeting he had at his agency in which he and his colleagues were discussing possible taglines for their Panasonic account, and he jokingly came up with "Panasonic: From Those Wonderful Folks Who Gave You Pearl Harbor."

You said not to buzz you all the time, but I don't know how else to do this - you have a phone call.
You can buzz me for a phone call. Things like coffee after I've said no, you don't have to ask again.
You're always asleep in here.
