Goofs
Episodes from Season 1 to Season 3 feature rotary phones with clear plastic finger wheels. These episodes take place before 1964, when the plastic wheel was introduced. Before that, the finger wheels were black and metal.

The picture of Pete's wife is different in later episodes than from the pilot. The picture in the pilot is obviously not the actress who plays Pete's wife (Alison Brie) most likely because she was not yet cast.

Office doors and office locations are different in the pilot than in later episodes. Most of the offices in the pilot do not even have names on the outside yet.

Q
How could Peggy not know she was pregnant?
A
A lot of viewers seem mystified by the fact that Peggy did not realize she was pregnant in season one. It should be kept in mind that women still sometimes do not realize they are pregnant until late in their pregnancies. In fact enough of these cases exist to make a tv show about it (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1239443/).In the early 1960s information about sexual and reproductive health was far less available than it is today. Barely a decade before Mad Men is set, Lucille Ball couldn't use the word "pregnant" on TV to describe her condition. Formal sex education for children was rare to nonexistent and as a Catholic Peggy likely got little or no sex education from her parents aside from proscriptive warnings against it.
Q
What is Duck Phillips' role at the end of season six?
A
In season six, Duck is working as an independent head hunter connecting prospective employers and employees. We see Pete talk to Duck early in the season when he's disatisfied with Sterling-Cooper. In the season finale, Duck accompanies a client to Sterling Cooper to interview for Don's job.
Q
How come no one can tell that Sal is gay?
A
It seems obvious to most viewers that Salvatore Romano, or Sal (Bryan Batt) is gay, yet the only one who seems to pick up on this is the one executive from Belle Jolie who is also gay. During the time period in which the character appears (1960-1963), gay culture was a far less prominent part of the culture than it is today. Furthermore, in the early sixties the kind of debonair sophisticate behavior which Sal exhibits had not yet become associated exclusively with homosexual men.
