Harvey Specter and Don Draper

Harvey Specter and Don Draper are the same character archtypes.

1) Their style

Harvey Specter and Don Draper both enjoy well cut suits and slicked back hair.

2) They have a complicated relationship with their mentee Peggy/Mike
Don: It's your job. I give you money. You give me ideas.
Peggy: But you never thank me.
Don: That's what the money is for!
Don: You should be thanking me every morning when you wake up, along with Jesus, for giving you another day!
Don: You are 20-something years old, it's time to get over birthdays!

From: The Suitcase

Harvey [to Mike]: You don't send a puppy to clean up its own mess.

From: Bail Out

Ultimately, they want to help out their mentees.  Don is the only person shown visiting Peggy during her unplanned pregnancy.
[Peggy in the hospital]
Don Draper: What's wrong with you?
Peggy Olson: I don't know.
Don Draper: What do they want you to do?
Peggy Olson: I don't know.
Don Draper: Yes you do. Do it. Do whatever they say. [leans in and whispers] Peggy, listen to me, get out of here and move forward. This never happened. It will shock you how much it never happened.
In Bail Out, Harvey ultimately speaks with Trevor's "friends" so they do not threaten Mike anymore.

3) They always have something clever to say

Don Draper in The Wheel: Teddy told me that in Greek, "nostalgia" literally means "the pain from an old wound." It's a twinge in your heart far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn't a spaceship, it's a time machine. It goes backwards, and forwards... it takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It's not called the wheel, it's called the carousel. It let's us travel the way a child travels - around and around, and back home again, to a place where we know are loved.

Jessica: We got paid before Gerald signed the deal?
Harvey: What are you talking about? This is a memo about some fire drill on Tuesday. You're the blue team captain, you get to wear a fire hat.

From the Pilot.
