-->'''Don:''' Love it or hate it, the fact is, we've been talking about it for the last 15 minutes.

Added DiffLines:

* AloneAmongTheCouples: Helen Bishop is the only divorcee in a child's birthday party full of married people, mostly unhappily married people at that. Later Betty, after Don deserts the party.


Added DiffLines:

* HappilyMarried: Most of the couples try to put up this facade, the only ones to fit the trope are Hank and Joyce Darling who are caught by Don kissing.


* AwfulWeddedLife: Hinted at with many of the couples at the birthday party. The men chuckle over a rude joke told by a comedian about going to lunch rather than saving either your drowning wife or lawyer in front of their embarrassed wives, the children play "house" re-enacting scenes that likely took place at home like fathers hitting the bar after an argument or [[ExciledToTheCouch mothers sending their husbands to the sofa]], some fathers creepily coming onto the divorced Helen Bishop, and the coup de grace of Betty being unable to voice her anger at Don deserting the birthday party.
* ExciledToTheCouch: Re-enacted by some of Sally's friends during their game.

Pete Campbell returns from his honeymoon with tall tales and a big grin on his face. He does tell Peggy Olson that their fling before his marriage was for one night only. Don Draper runs into an old army buddy who knows him under the name of Dick Whitman. He also takes a tour of Rachel Menken's store but in a private moment, their mutual attraction becomes evident. The Drapers have friends over for their daughter's birthday party, including the divorcée who lives down the street. Don however is obviously unhappy with his lot in life and seems to be carrying a burden that is not apparent.
