Another incident with company executives is the last straw for Ken in working on the Chevy account, most specifically in Detroit. While Ken will still retain account responsibilities in the office, the on the ground account responsibilities are given to Pete, who is buoyed by working on SC&P's most prestigious account. What Pete is not happy about is that Bob will still be working on the account, since Bob made a pass at him. As such, Pete calls Duck to tell him that he no longer wants to leave SC&P but that he wants Duck to find Bob another prestigious job lead but not necessarily find Bob that next job. After hearing back from Duck, Pete decides on a slightly different tact in dealing with Bob.

When Ted Chaough spoke with a Boston accent at the Ocean Spray meeting he was told that Vaughn Meader was buried with Kennedy. Meader produced two comedy albums lampooning the Kennedy family that were quickly pulled from the market after the assassination. The first volume sold over seven and a half million copies and won a Grammy in 1963. Kennedy joked about it publicly several times and even gave copies to friends as gifts. Some biographers report that privately he was upset over it and the Jacqueline was furious. Ironically, the first album was recorded live on October 22, 1962, the same night as Kennedy's Cuban Missile Crisis speech. The cast was aware of this but the audience did not know. See more
