    as someone who speaks sarcasm, and on an all together too frequent basis (at least according to my wife), i'm fairly certain Joan was being sarcastic, but the actress just sucked at the delivery. The guy's reaction made it obvious, as did her follow up.

    Maybe sarcastic just isn't the right word. She was clearly not using a sarcastic tone. She said something that was insincere and was delivered in a deadpan with the intention of highlighting how absolutely ridiculous it sounded if it was serious. That is the definition of sarcastic (saying the opposite of what she means), but we're all so used to it being said in a smarmy tone that deadpan sarcasm feels off.

    Exactly. When you're actually trying to make a point, having the logic of your discourse speak for itself is much stronger than having to use inflection and other verbal cues to bolster your argument.

    Joan gets plenty of cr*p from clients in her professional life; she's successful, rich and still very desirable. She's also had plenty of life experience that she appears to have learned from. No way is she going to sell her soul for a man that hasn't proven himself worthy.

    I was hoping that article would list the current value of the gigantic house Henry and Betty Francis live in.

    On a different note-I love how Don has kept his clean-shaven look while his colleagues have grown epic mustaches and/or mutton chops..
    He couldn't wait to shave when he was forced to go to the office when the real estate agent kicked him out of the apartment...
    He's so behind the times...

    OTOH I am so waiting for the todays stubbly look to go away. Its been around for a good while now and I am waiting for some rebel to start a new trend.

    These.

    The only thing grosser than him coming on to Betty was her getting all flustered around him.
