Harry fights hard to be appreciated at SC&P, proving his worth time and time again, from his early initiative on the Belle Jolie account to his success landing the massive Sunkist account. Yet Harry never feels he gets the respect he deserves, which contributes to a growing ego and a habit of name-dropping his Hollywood connections to reaffirm his importance. Despite his apparent self-interest, he shows loyalty to friends Pete and Ken, and his allegiance to Don leads Don to support Harry’s bid for partnership. But Roger’s surprise sale of the agency leaves the partners rich and Harry once again empty-handed.
