    She was a ticketing agent, not a stewardess.

    I don't even think she was a ticketing agent. I thought she was a hostess in the airline lounge.

    Ah, I think you may be right. Roger and Don probably wouldn't have been able to sit in the lounge area with drinks if it were a regular gate area (because they couldn't have taken the drinks outside of the airport bar).

    Although I note that, although I don't know what things were like in Northwest Orient lounges in 1968, airline lounges do have their own reservations/ticketing agents inside in these modern times.

    You are correct, I rewatched the episode, and Roger mentioned she's a hostess in the first class lounge.

    You are also correct. However, I wasn't addressing that aspect.

    In any event, shouldn't all of the partners, ie Don, been made aware that they were making Joan a partner because she was going to sleep with the Jaguar guy? In previous episodes, they showed that Joan & Don respect each other, and his opinion matters to her. I'm near certain that Pete implied to Joan that Don was on board with the "agreement" to persuade Joan to do what Pete wanted. But Don was completely unaware, and went to her apartment and told her not to do the nasty as soon as he found out. Of course at that point, it was too late.

    Was Don the only partner that said no? Was he the only one to treat Joan's integrity to be worth more than landing the Jaguar account? I honestly forget the answer to that question.

    And what about taking the company public? Don & Roger were apparently in the dark about that. Joan stated Don is all about himself, but 3 of the 5 partners were about to make a huge decision without consulting the other 2. I'm not a joint owner in a multi-million dollar ad agency, but should all partners be part of the decision process of going public?

    All other partners agreed to approach Joan with an offer after Don stormed out.

    Bert, Pete and Joan were not going to take the company public without the other partners, they were just doing the research and finding out what it was worth. Of course the assumption is that Don and Roger wouldn't turn down making even bigger fortunes.
