    The house my family moved into in 1980 had fire-engine red shag carpeting in my bedroom.

    It was removed fairly soon afterward. :D

    I have almost the same experience. The house we moved into in 1979 had green shag carpeting throughout. Not emerald green. It was a avocado hue. :eek:

    My house had Marigold carpeting and daisy stickers on the sliding glass door.

    The house we bought 5 years ago had red shag carpet in the master bedroom and blue shag in another bedroom. Nothing in the house had been updated since the 70s. It was like a museum of bad taste.

    Our house in the 1970's had dark brown shag carpet. It looked pretty good then. I don't think I would buy any today, especially since we are practically all wood floors in the house.

    I think the white carpet is a metaphor for Don and Megan's wedding. At some point one final thing will happen to the previously "white and pure" carpet that will send them over the edge. Both of the big fights that they have had have ended on that white carpet.

    I loved how even after Megan had attributed the whole idea to Don he still credited her for the last futuristic bit; that the client admitted made the piece.


    Oh and the white carpet; didn't Bobby have some newspaper spread around while he was refilling the pen? (Admittedly that just takes the change of ink on carpet down from "near certain" to "fairly likely")

    Yes, there was newspaper spread out, but I thought it looked like Bobby had already spilled some onto the carpet, just past the edge of the newspaper.

    He had spilled off the paper onto the carpet...not a ton, but enough that I noticed it...
