    I think it was just a "high class" way of saying she couldn't imagine a better life than what she has, or that there's no one she's jealous of.

    Completely false, of course, as she was dripping with jealousy for both Megan and Megan and Don's relationship, but I think that was the intent of the line.

    Roger is as big a bastard as Pete, but at least he's funny. The scene with him and Ginsburg was awesome with all his Jewish stereotypes. It never occurred to me that Jane was Jewish either.

    Insecure Don? More Megan barefoot, but she didn't look the slightest bit pregnant when Betty was watching her. And 73rd and Park? Nice!

    And sweet fantasy, Pete!!

    I've never understood the betty hate until this episode. Wow.

    And sally came into her own as a manipulative *****. I've never enjoyed her more!

    I think it's a show of how the characters have grown and changed.

    I would love for Don to come to work without all the hair stuff in his hair!

    In the scene where Don was telling her about Anna, she actually looked like a mini-Betty, again reinforcing the Betty-as-a-child theme.

    In a few years "the wet head is dead" campaign will change all that.

    This show would be Mad Men:CSI if Sally had called any of the grown women I grew up with in the 60s a liar.

    Jeez. Roger can buy his ex-wife a new apartment on her whim but he can't defile her in it? Doesn't seem fair. It wasn't all his fault. She could have said no.

    I was wondering if this would come up, since I remember being a bit surprised that Don took the kids to meet Anna, and everyone called him "Dick Whitman" while he was there.

    I wondered about this. I guess that little pause just after they started making out where she said, "Wait," was supposed to be her way of letting him know she didn't want to continue, but then when he kept going, she did not protest. I wonder if that was supposed to be some kind of indicator of the times and culture, where a woman was expected to "be available" for her man, even if she didn't want to be.

    :confused: "her man"? I don't believe he's been "her man" for awhile now....(nor has she been "his woman")

    He takes care of her. pays for her apartment. Even today I could imagine it hard to say no someone your livelihood depends on.

    He grossly underestimated how much kids pick up. He's not the first!

    I couldn't help but notice that Bobby drew a whale being harpooned and his b-day present to Don was a shaving cream brush made from a real beaver tail. Things that are unthinkable nowadays. Or should be.

    I think it was touching on how kids weren't able to be that disrespectful back in those times.

    So they would be murdered? I hope he didn't mean the children would be physically harmed.

    I thought at first that the Whale represented Mom/Fat Betty in some way.

    Not sure this needs it's own thread, but the current Inside the Actors Studio has several of the cast of Mad Men as well as Matthew Weiner It's not the best episode of the show, but not the worst.

    The actress who plays Sally comes off as very bright and very talented. I have a better appreciation for her performance now that I've seen her not being creepy.

    Loved Sally! When she was hating on Megan, then said to her, "What are you going to do, go make yourself cry?" :p;) Awesome!
