Showcase Episode: "Waldorf Stories"
Roger Sterling's second wife's idiot nephew, Danny stumbled into a gig at Sterling Cooper after he pitched a dumb idea that Don ended up accidentally using. Danny was always a cure for the common Mad Men episode, the butt of everyone's cruelest jokes — even Peggy came to enjoy having him and his pipe around.
