Don gives the pitch to the Playtex people, and it's all stuff that's been explicitly said in this episode already, so let's skip to the part where he says the bra should be called the Harlequin, and should come in both black and white. He flips over the photo, and on the left side we have our Jackie, wearing the black against a white background while holding a teacup, and on the right is the Marilyn with the colors reversed, clutching a cocktail. It turns out they did end up going with the same model for both pictures, so I guess that means it's okay for women who are not his wife to fit into both boxes, as evidenced by the copy: "Nothing fits both sides of a woman better than Playtex." The Playtex guys' response is basically: "Great idea, but we were totally kidding about changing our strategy." I'd like to hear Roger's take on why. Don has no problem rolling with this punch, even managing to avoid being decapitated by Paul's lower lip, and he says they'll keep the campaign on file for them should they change their minds. Of course, it will probably lose a lot of its appeal in about three months, when Marilyn becomes less sexy and more, you know, dead. The room clears, and Duck mutters that it was a waste of time, as they made up their minds on the way over. Don intends for the dÃ©tente to stick, though, as he assures Duck it wasn't his fault, and tells him that they at least bought a couple years worth of security...
