* CasanovaWannabe: '''SO''' hard. In a series where EverybodyHasLotsOfSex, he's the guy who never, ever, manages it on his own merits. The only time we see him get any, [[spoiler:it was being used on him as a bargaining chip by Lakshmi to get him to back off from helping Paul.]]

* TheObiWan: He's the one who discovers Peggy's talent as a copy writer. One season later, his alcoholism gets him fired. By the time [[TheBusCameBack The Bus Comes Back]], Peggy has become experienced enough that she no longer needs him as a mentor. [[spoiler:However, he reprises this role to Peggy in season five, as he is the one who convinces her to leave SCDP and move on to another firm.]]
** He surprisingly becomes one to Don in Season 7. After Don gets fired and then rehired by the agency and the restrictions they place on him causes him to fall off the wagon, Freddy gives him a combination of WhatTheHellHero and RousingSpeech that gets Don to sober up and go to work the next day. As someone on Twitter asked, "When did Freddy Rumsen become the Yoda of Mad Men?"

Wife of Don until the end of Season 3. Wealthy and educated, and bourgeois and clueless. When we first meet her, she's TheWoobie, an outwardly perfect, inwardly depressed housewife who can't even go to her [[FreudianCouch old-school Freudian psychiatry sessions]] without her husband calling her doctor behind her back to find out what she's saying. Over the first three seasons, she finds out a lot about Don that she didn't want to know and confronts him several times to varying effect, eventually [[GoodAdulteryBadAdultery having an affair of her own]] and divorcing Don for her lover. Since this, the main focus for her has been what an awful ex-wife and mother she is. [[BaseBreaker Opinions vary]] as to whether the character [[TheScrappy has crashed]] or is [[CharacterizationMarchesOn making a controlled descent]].

Added DiffLines:

* TheQuietOne: As admen go he is incredibly taciturn. This actually works to his advantage in meetings and campaign sessions, because what he does have to say comes off as that much more important.

Added DiffLines:
