episode 10: hands and knees

It's Sunday so that means it's tome for another episode of Mad Men.

Episode 10: Hands and Knees
An unannounced visitor at the Francis home rattles Betty.

(I'm hoping this episode is better than I anticipate. Expectations are low since Betty annoys me.)

I was actually surprised by Betty's happy reaction to the Beatles tickets...that's how low my expectations of her behavior have gone. I was expecting a much more peevish, "But I have plans for her...blahblahblahwhinycakes."

It was nice to see her actually smile and be happy for her daughter, for once, wasn't it? :)

And I *loved* Roger in this episode. Being just the right amount of supportive of Joan, helping her think through the options, making it clear that he would support her however she wanted him to. I dunno, I thought he acted pretty classy.

I took Joan's comment about the age of her daughter to mean that she didn't want the other woman to be embarrassed by her gaffe. She said 15 because she wanted her "daughter" to be the same age as the woman was when she had hers. My two cents.

At the partners' meeting, I was struck by the fact that out of all of them there, Cooper was the only one whose life was not in crisis. So calm.

And Price's lifetime of physical abuse from his father explains a lot, doesn't it?
