He's more of a prick (or arrogant) now and Peggy is the only one who will say it to him (we're all here because of you). Jantzen seemed like a retread of the Mark your man pitch, and Draper gets up and says we're done if you don't want to hear our ideas. Except this time, they really didn't want to hear his ideas so his bluff is gone.
I was thumbing this on the iPod on my way to work. Allison looks like she's still Draper's secretary so I guess she got poached. Draper also watches football? I thought with the philandering, the booze, client engagements, that Mad Men never have time for sports.
Him sitting there shining his shoes after work reminds me of me though.
