    That fight might be the best thing I've seen on this show, and I'm not exaggerating. Who didn't want to see someone land a haymaker on Pete? Roger kills me every time: "Who else wants to see this?" The kiss - I have to admit, I've been secretly hoping Lane & Joan would get together this season, so I was thrilled with it. At least Joan didn't shove him off, although sadly she didn't go lock the door as I'd hoped. I'll be anxious to see if it goes anywhere. Lane needs some love.

    I felt like Pete had matured so much since the first season. I even commented on it earlier in this thread, but now I see that isn't the case at all. He's the same smarmy kid.

    I also found the reason for the loss of the Jaguar account amusing.

    Don's plaid sportcoat was atrocious.

    I'm hoping the writers avoid turning Pete into a one-dimensional character. Sure, it's fun to have a character that's so unlikeable, but in the real world I've never really gotten to know anyone, with the exception of a relative or two, who was totally devoid of something at least resembling a redeeming quality. Pete getting so thoroughly humbled in this most recent episode (the fistfight, the underage girl pushing him aside for the young buck, Don's quick repair of the faucet while a hapless Pete fumbled around with the toolbox) might be the beginning of his redemption. One can hope.

    At the risk of betraying a bit too much -- I kinda liked the plaid sports jackets, especially Kenny's, the blue one. And Don's was cool in its way. I happen to have a coupla three or four somewhat similar vintage jackets myself, purchased at thrift shops and the like in recent years, although mine mostly date from a few years earlier than this 1966 (or is it '67 yet?) period piece.

    Oh gosh, what a GREAT episode. I have to say that I really like this new Don - I love how he's committed to Megan. I hope it continues.

    And the fight scene was terrific.

    Thank goodness Kenny is still writing, though - as a writer, if someone told me to stop writing or I'd lose my job, I'd still secretly find a way to do it somehow!

    Really? I hate to say it, but I liked it better when he was a cad and I can't stand Megan for some reason.

    The series is still really good, but I miss the style of the early seasons.

    I'm with Melissa on the new Don. He was a mess last year. I didn't like Megan last year but do now.

    But I'm with rue on regretting the passing away of the good '60s.

    I don't care for Megan either.

    I can appreciate Don trying to 'turn over a new leaf' but I also predict it won't last long until he'll be back to his old ways!

    I like Don and am thrilled he's getting his act together. I don't care much for Megan, though. I guess she just doesn't seem like the real ladylike type to me.

    Faye IS still out there somewhere. As are a couple other, shall we say, slightly more mature old flames. I wouldn't put ANYTHING past Weiner. I just can't wait to see what it is!

    Oh, I don't know that Don will last long in this new role, but I commend him on giving the righteous path a shot.

    Megan is starting to grow on me.

    I also miss the styles of the early 60s. Now we're treading into the reason I never liked 60s fashions. Megan's dress that she wore to Pete and Trudy's was god-awful to me.

    In Megan's defense, I will say that she totally rules the kohl eye & pale lip look so popular in the 60s.
