** He presents Harry with a spec script he has written for a StarTrek episode. He is very proud of his work, calling it the best thing he has ever written. Harry, Peggy, and even Paul's girlfriend agree that it's terrible.

* PosthumousCharacter

to:

* PosthumousCharacterPosthumousCharacter: He did when Don was only ten years old, way before the series begins. He only shows up via flashbacks to Don's youth, and in one occasion as a hallucination of sorts to Don when he's under the influence of drugs.



* AbusiveParent

to:

* AbusiveParentAbusiveParent: She was heavily emotionally abusive to Don, calling him a "whorechild". It's to the point Don altogether refuses to acknowledge her as being any sort of mother to him.

* GenreSavvy: Tells Roger she's quitting before they transfer to [=McCann=] Erickson because "Advertising isn't for everyone" and given how that agency is treating [[StayInTheKitchen higher-up white women like]] [[DudeWheresMyRespect Joan and Peggy]], she's better off leaving.

* NoAccountingForTaste: [[SmugSnake Pete Campbell]], [[KickTheDog Duck Phillips]], [[WhatDoesSheSeeInHim Mark]], [[BourgeoisBohemian Abe]], Ted....the number of [[BridgetJones fuckwits]] she's been with is astounding; she later averts this after [[spoiler: getting together with Stan]].

Added DiffLines:

* PoliticallyCorrectVillain: "Villain" is ''too'' strong of a word to describe him, but he's still a colossal {{jerkass}} who cheats on his wife, makes the women he cheats with her on cheat on their own significant others, and is often the most antagonistic force against Don. He's also one of the biggest supporters of the Civil Rights Movement (enough that he lashes out at Harry when he sees MLK's death as a {{skewed priorit|ies}}y) and once called out Roger for his Japanophobia against the Honda executives.

* Expy: A wealthy self-made man who grew up poor, adopted a new name to escape his past and gives off the impression of charm and charisma to [[BrokenAce cover how broken and unhappy he is]], Don is basically a twenty-first century version of [[TheGreatGatsby Jay Gatsby]].

* WeUsedToBeFriends: His relationship with Don becomes increasingly strained as the series progresses. Initially Don looks up to Bert as a MentorArchetype. Likewise Bert values Don as the agency's ace-in-the-hole, often treating him as a protege of sorts. This changes as Don's behavior becomes more destructive and Bert begins to view him as a liability. By the time of Bert's death, he is opposed to Don working for the company and openly considers him a "pain in the ass".
