Miles: Babbitt buys an ad agency.
Miles is comparing Bob Spano to George Babbitt, the subject of Sinclair Lewis' Pulitzer Prize-nominated novel Babbitt (1922). Since its publication, "Babbitt" has become a synonym for a provincial, narrow-minded businessman. The character lived and worked in the fictional medium- city of Zenith, Ohio, hence the titles of this two-part episode?
