that was the first thing i thought of too when the lyrics sank in, backed up by don's (at least semi-)distrust of the deal. plus, i just read this interview with matthew weiner where he had this to say: "I hope that people listen to the words to the song to some degree, and know that there is some bittersweetness to having all that material success. It is not really life. No one can own it." and top that off with the fact that mccann would no doubt be twirling a dastardly mustache in every scene if he had one lol.at this point it seems very shallow. hopefully "the best things in life are free" is referring to how they are all contracted for 5 years and are no longer "free."
