When Sterling (he can be so sassy!) reminisces about the early days of Don and Betty
“Mona said they looked like they were on top of our wedding cake.”
This recalls Alice Roosevelt Longworth’s, daughter of Teddy and general provocateur, dismissal of New York Governor Thomas Dewey as “the little man on the wedding cake.” It’s an odd (perhaps unintentional allusion), seeing as how Draper is far manlier than Dewey, but maybe this is just another one Roger’s clever ways of emasculating Don.
