They probably just thought a scene of Betty finding lipstick or perfume on his clothes would be cliche, but Don's Mr. Appearance. I wouldn't be surprised if he has an off-screen city hygiene routine to go along with his fresh desk shirts. We've seen him swimming at some kind of athletic club before. Maybe he hits it up at lunchtime every day and showers afterwards.

Pete is at liberty to be an rear end in a top hat forever because his family's rich. If they weren't he would have been out on his rear end after season 1 and doing Hare Krishnas with Lakshmi by now.

How would they get the little squiggly ketchup line on the hot dogs in the glass bottle days anyway, or is that an anachronism? I'm picturing pouring it into a bowl first and using a baster or something.

Sad that the Benson-Ginsberg creative partnership is seemingly over so soon. Also I was really hoping it was going to be Paul Kinsey at that pool party.

I kinda doubt there's any considered meaning behind Stan having it in particular. Stan's got kind of a recovering frat boy thing going on.

I wish I had a friend like Freddy. :(

Freddy is great, and his buck up speech is heroic, but Don going back to work is also such an ambivalent moment. It's interesting to contrast Freddy's advice with Duck's to Pete about how what really mattered was investing in his family. Meanwhile Don has chosen isolation and adding more money to a fortune that will probably just sit there until it's divided up after he dies. I was super checked out on Don after his ridiculousness in season 6, but I was a little disappointed at this point that his seeming resolve from the end of the season finale didn't add up to much. On the other hand it's very realistic that willpower and a one-time shock aren't enough to get someone to really change their behavior.

Given the quality of long running syndicated newspaper comics when I was a kid Lou's dream actually seems very achievable. I can easily imagine Scout's Honor by Lou Avery sandwiched between Family Circus and Marmaduke.
