I love Mad Men.
I love how well-written it is, how amazingly acted.
I love the set design and covet Joan’s wardrobe.
I eagerly look forward to watching each episode with Mr. Monkey.
I don’t, however, usually think of Don Draper as a professional role model, for reasons that are very clear to those who’ve watched even one episode (my liver couldn’t handle Don as role model).
That said, allow me to present this clip with the brief note that it has taken all of my self-control not to steal one of the lines to use at work during the last few weeks: http://www.amctv.com/mad-men/videos/mad-men-talked-about-scene-don-lectures-peggy
(It would feel just delightful to scream “That’s what the money is for!” sometimes. Delightful).
