    In the scene with Sal and his wife, I was a bit confused as Sal went on explaining the Bye Bye Birdie scene to his wife. Part way through the demonstration she gets this odd look on her face; I was thinking A) She is suspecting that her husband is gay B) His directorial abilities aren't exactly the greatest or C) Something I'm just not seeing?

    Only moments before, she had referred to him as a "conquering hero." Then he played with obvious zeal the part of a coquette. A breach opened in her mind between how she had been trying to view him and the effeminate way in which he had displayed himself. She began to grasp the contours of the problem.

    That was a very awkward scene.

    Is it just me, or did Kinsey's not getting sacked for expressing his Penn Station views to the client demolish much of the carefully constructed authenticity of the prior two seasons?

    Yes, it's just you. I don't think it had anything t to do with "demolish[ing] much of the carefully constructed authenticity of the prior two seasons?". It didn't seem as if Don nor the new owners gave two shits about getting that account.

    have you seen the pilot... the way don spoke to rachel menken, i don't think expressing an opinion is something they'd let him go for.

    i think don cared about the acct to some degree, he certainly did after he landed them and then the brits let them go.

    By the way, the (silk?) jacket that jai alai kid was wearing in his first scene -- the conference room scene -- was great.

    Wow. Touchy! One would think you'd written the episode! In my experience of the real world, displaying good judgment is 80% of the job, and dressing down a client (any client) is poor judgment indeed, especially with dramatic, withering mockery.

    I see where you're coming from here, but Kinsey is rather lower on the totem pole than Don was. Also, IIRC, Don was luring them in. Kinsey was crapping all over their moral view of the universe.

    He seemed to have cared because management made him go smooth things over and then they change their minds on a whim.

    They should have pursued Kinsey's gaffe, I dont know about sacking him over it. Kinsey is a good character. If there is anyone they need an excuse to get rid of, it's Cosgrove.

    Grandpa Geane was started to get interesting in this episode. His relationship with Sally really was sweet. He seemed to respect her more after she gave the $5 back. Sally is also one of my favorite child characters in TV/movie. My favorite would probably have to be the little girl in Pan's Labyrinth. I'm glad Don persisted with the helmet issue.

    Every scene with the jai alai guy was very awkward, and Don looked disgusted with Pete's encouragement over dinner.

    sal's wife is all WTF because teh ghey wasn't invented until the 1980s so nobody knows what's going on

    Back then, and even today, I wonder how much of the little queeny hints could be confused with Sal simply being Italian. I swear, if someone had no concept of Italians and you flew them to Italy, they would assume all the men were gay.

    I'm looking for some historical context on these two:

    - Was it common for adults to let children drive in the early 1960s the way Sally was?
    - Was there some beef between Sweden and Norway at the time?

    In the scene with Sal and his wife, I was a bit confused as Sal went on explaining the Bye Bye Birdie scene to his wife. Part way through the demonstration she gets this odd look on her face; I was thinking A) She is suspecting that her husband is gay B) His directorial abilities aren't exactly the greatest or C) Something I'm just not seeing?

    Anyway it was a good episode.


    oh, I think that she was thinking "now I know why he never wants to fuck me!"

    And I just thought it was foreshadowing just how bad the ad actually is. IMO I think his wife is just a little too naive and a little too dumb to figure out Sal is teh gheyz. I'd be surprised if people even thought about that.

    I've really enjoyed Peggy in this season and can't wait to see how she develops. She's strong and smart, but she seems also very patient, which is a critical virtue for any woman who wants to move ahead during that era, but she started pretty low on the totem pole. I also enjoy her composed exploration of male-female relationships and see how these observations of hers could lead to a lesbian relationship.
