    next time my other half is doing dishes or cleaning the toilet, I'm going to wrestle her down and pull the "YOU WANT THIS" line.

    Thanks, Mad Men!

    At least wait until she finishes the chores at hand. That's what an Alpha would do.

    Just rewatched bits of it since last Sunday. I noticed Ponds has gone to Y&R - does that means Freddy is out this season? I rather liked Freddy - although his sobriety makes him a different character than seasons one and two.

    there was a conflict with clearasil. campbell was supposed to drop clearasil, but instead got trudy's father to give him the entire vicks chemical account, so it was a 6mil account vs 2 and i presume ponds had to go.

    They considered inviting Freddy to the birthday, but noted that he never attends parties. I assume he is still working there.

    Betty's character is so fucking boring. Get her off the show.

    Actress was pregnant (it was obvious in a couple of shots) and rather than shoot around it they worked it into the plot. But rather than make the character pregnant, they decided to just make her fat.

    I really don't care about Betty. Kind of hoped they'd kill her off with cancer.

    I think they used a body double in scene when she got up from the bath tub.

    I think that was def a body double when she was getting out of the bath. What about the fat chin, do you think it was the real deal or prosthetic? I alway thought Betty was hot, a bitch but hot. I know she is preggers IRL but damn they really made her look like a fatty.

    I find myself cringing whenever Roger walks by hoping that his remarks at Don's new secretary Dawn aren't off the wall racist. And how long until the creeper Lane Price tries to sleep with Dawn?

    They put Peggy in a fat suit in Season 1, assuming that's what they did here.

    "Dinner at 6:30, we could get some steaks?"

    "No."

    "Ok, I'll see you at 7:15, already having eaten!"



    Also loved Harry getting high and pounding back 20 burgers :lol:
