    • Pete Campbell tells Don Draper that the meeting with the Honda executives was a "Margaret Dumont" sized disaster.
      Margaret Dumont (1982-1965) was a large actress who played the buffoonish foil in seven Marx Brothers comedies. Using a haughty voice, with ladylike civility and apparently clueless to all of Groucho Marx's better satirical lines, Dumont added a comedic version of social stability to Marx Brothers comedies while Groucho, Chico and Harpo trashed her expensive high society parties, a ship's stateroom or an opera. Groucho always credited her for adding to the comedy and she was sometimes called the fifth Marx brother.
