mad men: souvenir

These weeks are flying by way to quickly... How are we already on week 8?

Episode 8: Souvenir
Don decides to include Betty on a company business trip. Pete lends a hand to a neighbor in his apartment building.

Grab your martini and come and chat about the episode.

My favorite line:

Pete: "Let me speak to the manager."
Sales Lady: "Of the entire store?"
Pete: "Of the Republic of Dresses. Whoever can help me with this, because you're falling short."

I really like how Joan was sorta sniffing around the Pete scandal but she was so nonplussed by getting caught working that she didn't really even think about it. Her very slightly downcast eyes and that very last gesture of hers said it all. It's moments like that that I'm in awe of Christina Hendricks and this show.

I'm even more stupid than your average German au pair, cause I really thought Pete was being nice! Duh. Although I think it's possible, Pete being Pete, that HE thought he was being nice. Until he realized he wanted something and then got drunk. Ugh. And that neighbor was pretty slimy.

Interesting that Pete couldn't just move on, he was feeling guilty and couldn't act like nothing had happened. He and his wife are a good pair, in a messed up sort of way.
