"This means everything to me!" — Don Draper
Sorry, Faye (and Megan): Even after a disastrous end to his first marriage, Don Draper still hasn't learned to separate his work from his life. But who on Mad Men has? On Sunday's episode, faced with the crisis of Lucky Strike leaving Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, Don uses Faye's personal feelings for him to get ahead in business, while also engaging in an affair when he thinks his request won't be granted. Pete finds himself choosing to save the drowning ship that is SCDP over spending time with his wife and new baby girl. Peggy, on the other hand, uses her relationship with Abe to give an inspired pitch to Playtex.
Then, of course, there's Roger, whose own self-denial has put the company at risk. Rather than telling his partners that Lee Garner Jr. is taking his money elsewhere, he's wasted a few weeks wallowing in guilt. And when the rest of the SCDP gang inevitably finds out, Roger lies and looks for solace in Joan, who is no longer there to catch him when he falls.
The episode takes its name from a business term: A "Chinese wall" is an information barrier that many companies establish between two parties to eliminate conflicts of interest. Although some of the characters on Mad Men could use the Great Wall of China to keep things appropriate, whatever wall that should exist is crumbling just as fast as Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce itself...

The original version of the song includes the line...
The Amazing Race
Bad taxi luck struck again on The Amazing Race — this time eliminating Andie DeKroon, 43, and the daughter she put up for adoption and is getting to know, Jenna Sykes. "It did stink because we all left the airport at the same time. We got in the cab, I had a map and said, 'This is where we're going,'" Jenna, 21, tells TVGuide.com. "He took us in a complete circle the wrong way." It only got worse as two more cab drivers let them astray later in the leg in Accra, Ghana, ending their Race experience, which the duo was using to get to know each other. But why was the show of all things the "perfect way" for them to bond?
