Episode 7 - We Get Red In the Face

This is one of my favourite episodes.  It has everything.

It has excess.

It has some very funny lines.

It has Roger puking.

It has Chekov's gun.

It has a chip and dip (it's practically four of something).

It is the inspiration for the name of a Mad Men facebook group I'm in.

But, most of all, it has this wonderful subtext.  An 'older' man trying to sort of lure a younger man into something that he thinks will wreck the younger one, yet, the younger one comes out on top.  The older man may be Dick Nixon, or, it may be Roger Sterling.  The younger man may be JFK, or, it may be Don Draper.  I wonder what Steve thinks of this analysis?  (I type these things up a day in advance....)
