      Great episode, as usual. It kinda seems that SCDP is going to crash pretty hard on the business side. Roger is borderline useless, Don is happy and doesn't really care anymore, what does Lane do again? (he's good with the books but doesn't bring in clients) and Pete is actually good at what he does but otherwise completely insufferable.
      Speaking of Pete Campbell:

      Pete got ****ted on pretty hard this episode. I think what I like so much about him is how much of a douche he is.

      Anyone else creeped out with Pete trying to go after that girl in the driving class?
      Yeah, he's a sleezeball.

      The thing about sally under the couch-bed, and don kicking the imaginary dead woman under there - I think that was just a connection to the Speck murders in chicago, '66 ( was last season 64 or 5? did they skip a year or am I just dainbread?). The only survivor hid under a bed, plus - don's still got some secrets.

      Speaking of don's secrets - did anyone notice how casually NewWife discussed Dick Whitman in one of the first two episodes?

      Not to bore you with the history of Surgical residency, but it was different back in the 60's. Medicine was hierarchical in that they may have taken 5 interns, 3 got promoted to junior residents, 2 to senior residents and only 1 was chief. All 5 were qualified, but only one made it, always. Greg didn't make chief. So he went military. He wasn't worthless or fired. Now days, everybody who is competent makes it. Back then, not so much. As a corollary, if you meet any surgeons that started practicing in the 50-80's, you know they're BAMFs.

      That being said, the show is picking up. I like Don's complacency, it's an interesting angle. Although until Sunday's suare' into the whorehouse, there hadn't been enough infidelity for me. I think it's picking up.

      Ah, I didn't take it that way. I thought he was finishing his medschool/internship with ol' red supporting him, and didn't get bumped up at all - but the army would take it.

      My wife was VERY surprised that don didn't get himself a piece.

      I think we're seeing a Don that is legitimately happy because he stepped out of the suburban hellhole that he wanted no part of. I think he also sees Pete making the mistakes he made and he realizes how foolish that was and he's trying to give some advice to Pete but Pete is too arrogant to understand it.

      Roger on acid was pretty much as awesome as it sounds, yet surprisingly poignant. Inevitable Don Draper marital problems are inevitable. Poor Peggy is starting to loose it. Another great episode.

      The Don Draper character is terribly boring. He is handsome, craps money and has girl problems? I wonder what dark and troubled chapter from his mysterious past will be disclosed. Oh, that's right -- no one cares. The only decent things in his scenes are the women.

      Sterling on acid was a nice change, as was his simple joy at his wife's notice that their marriage was over. Liked his response to his wife's accusation that he doesn't like her. "But I used to."

      Roger's acid trip was beyond words.

      The mild amusement he showed as it was unfolding was pitch perfect to his character.

      This ep was a stunning home run.

      Roger getting head from the mother in law and Sally's reaction.

      That last shot of all four of them miserable at the table for all different reasons was great.

      Yeah, that was quite nice. I'm quite interested in seeing the unedited version of that scene on blu-ray.

      Also enjoyed a couple of Sterling's, which I render only approximately:

      Ginsberg: And you assumed I am jewish.

      Sterling: This involves a client dinner.

      Ginsberg: ....and murder.

      Sterling: Stop talking. Monarch sells wine to jews. Now it wants to sell to normal people.



      and, after agreeing to get his soon-to-be ex-wife a new apartment:

      I feel like one of us should say "thank you".

      Man, Lane did some shady stuff. Securing a $50,000 line of credit (worth $355,000+ today) based on a strong 1st quarter from the agency to help cover the $7,500 check he wrote out as Don (~$54,000 today) is downright criminal. We probably won't see him next season.

      Don's speech at the end was very important w/o him even knowing. Because of Lane, if the agency doesn't get Jaguar as a client, they could be in some deeeeeep crap.

      So what was the hottest part of the episode, Lakshmi or the Jag?





      I say the Jag.

      And remember the season opener scene when guys from Y&R threw paper bags filled with water on black protesters right outside the building? That was real.

      The Jags were pure sex, the Krishna chick was nothing special. It was a trip to see Kinsey back in the fold. I miss that dude.

      The dialogue between Don and Joan was awesome, just so well layered and I was hoping for them to hook up the whole time. I miss philandering Don. I'm also amped to see hungry Don starting to reappear.
