Pete goes striding up to Don's door, but Peggy cuts in, "Can I help you?" Thank GOD -- she's finally completely over him. I knew that belt would come in handy. She announces Pete to Don via the intercom, to his mild annoyance and my utter delight, and when Don gives the green light, Pete's lame comeback is "Thank you, sweetheart." Good one, dipshit. Inside, Pete continues to make the mistake he's been making all season by attempting to talk to Don as though they're equals; he tries to put Duck down while saying he's done everything he could to emulate Roger, and Don is very clearly not having any of it. Pete does better when he calmly details the clients with whom he has great relationships. "When Walter Waith needed a urologist, he called me for a recommendation!" Looks like Matherton's not the only one who's had the clap. Don concedes that he's good at his job, and says Bertram loves him (Um, what? The only time I remember them interacting at all, Bertram dismissively shot him down for his comparison of Kennedy to Elvis); however, he doesn't see what the hurry is. Pete, catching the snap, asks that Don think about it, and says that there are men younger than he with the job in question at bigger firms. He asks if Cooper signed off on Duck, and Don answers, "I'll keep you posted." Hopefully by braining you with a post.
