Something that I first noticed in this episode. Pete's chair... Pete's new office is pretty modern looking, but he has this gigantic leather chair that looks at least 20-30 years older than everything else in the office. It also much larger than Pete and makes him look incredibly small.

I wonder if the Scarlett character was originally planned to have a bigger role after season 5 and it just didn't work out?

Scarlett ends up being Harry's secretary and plays a pretty substantial role in Season 7, Ep 2.

Megan thought she was getting obscene phone calls, but it was just Roger trying to reach Marie. I'd forgotten that bit.

Great use of the best Bond theme.

In this episode, Don resigns himself to the fact that everyone he cares about will leave him and/or he will push them away...he does actually make a statement to this effect. And, having resigned himself to the inevitability of that eventuality, he also sees that he prefers people leaving him the way that Peggy did versus the way that Adam and Lane have. So, even though he sees that Megan is on the way out, he is helping her on her way, rather than trying to quash her as he did to Betty (who also ended up leaving him anyway...) I actually found this episode to be somewhat redeeming for Don...
