mad men: 'the fog'

A third of the season is over already. I can't believe that! But I'm going to focus on all the episodes left in this season.

Season 3, Episode 5: The Fog
Betty and Don deal with Sally. Pete pursues a new angle in business. Betty has a strange dream.

Remember to track and come back.

Roger to Pete: Are you aware of how many handjobs I'm going to have to give?
Yes! That was putting it in account terms, apparently. :-) And yes, Roger's line of the night.

But I loved that fact that Pryce caught that fact that there might be an opening to market directly to "negroes". He's not dumb. He sees the opportunity to make some money.
That's just it. Once again, as we've seen several times, Pete's idea isn't wrong. It's his execution that stinks. And Roger says their line of work comes down to "I don't like that guy."

Pete was unintentionally hilarious on several occasions in this episode:
To Harry: "Seriously. Is it possible that these Admirals are being bought by Negroes?"
To Hollis: "A lot of Negroes prefer Admiral." (Loved Hollis' answer to "Why did you get it?" "To watch TV."
And when he's talking it being illogical for Admiral to reject an opportunity to make more money: "Then again, I'm in advertising ..."

(I need a Pete icon. I hope AmyCurl can forgive me. ;-)

And earlier, to Duck: "Two months at Grey and you're already having a nosh?" Apparently Grey is a bit too Jewish for Pete's taste.
