--> You know, Ted and I, whenever we would hear that your agency was involved, we'd always be so intimidated. What was that man up to? Such a cloud of mystery! Now that I've been backstage, I'm deeply unimpressed Don. Your just a bully and a drunk; a football player in a suit.

* WeUsedToBeFriends: "Friends" is stretching it a bit, but he and Don were initially on much better terms. After all, it was Don who hired Duck in the first place.

* EnemyMine: Despite having a mutual dislike of each other, Lou and Jim Cutler are willing to collaborate to undermine Don's place in the company.



* ArchEnemy: Sees himself as one for Don, the latter of whom doesn't take him very seriously until they start working together.

* ChristmasCake: Marie is married, but flirts with most every man she comes across, including her son-in-law Don, who makes nothing of it, assuming it's just a "French thing". [[spoiler:It works on Sterling, however.]]
