mad men: 'my old kentucky home'

Another Sunday, another episode of GOOD tv.  Tonight's installment:

Season 3 Episode 3: My Old Kentucky Home
The writers fight off boredom when they are forced to work after hours. Roger hosts a party while Joan and Greg host a party of their own. Sally has a run in with Grandpa.

I may have to hide my remote because I have a feeling I'm going to want to throw it at the tv at Greg, the rapist.

You know the drill, grab your cocktail and come in and chat about Don and the rest of the gang at Sterling Cooper.

Hey, guys. LOVED this episode, because I'm such a freak for great lines. This one was the funniest ep I've seen in awhile. You guys picked up on several that I loved. I also liked this, mostly bc of Don's delivery.

Betty's dad: "You people. Think money solves every problem."
Don: "No, just this particular problem."

I loved Don's line to Roger too, gatz, and I loved it because there was a break in the middle. So it sounded like, "No one thinks you're happy. They think you're foolish." IMO, those last two lines I quoted were so effective because Jon Hamm fired them back at the speaker so quickly. It's one of Don's special powers, IMO. Hamm has great timing and it gives the impression that Don is always the master of the situation, whether he chooses to exercise it or not.

Man, that last scene between Peggy and Olive was fantastic. "I'm going to be fine, Olive." And I think I'm ready to call it, Tom, at least for my own self. It seems like they're saying Peggy really is creating her own destiny. So while the boys did present the opportunity of marijuana, and the boys did demonstrate how to get laid, she seems to be doing those things consciously and purposefully...IDK if I'm saying this right. I'm leaning toward Peggy NOT mimicking the guys or trying to have what they have (and what she SHOULD wnat) and more toward Peggy trying to have what she actually does want, both short-term and long-term.
