Here, finally, watch me crosspost, even if it's just incoherent squeeing:

Ok, now that has to have been the best episode of Mad Men ever!

I'm still swooning with all the love I have for it!

I love the relationship Peggy and Don are having in this was like the ultimate Peggy/Don fest. I loved every little bit of it, the angry working together in the beginning. The Dinner. How drunk Don went on drunk Duck, how he slept on her lap, how he made the phonecall in the morning. And finally how in the end the door was this time left open.

The way he even admitted to feeling somewhat threatened by her youth in the beginning. The way he's the only one she can really be honest around without facing a cloud of judgement and how she's in turn becoming the one person who really knows Don.

This kind of relationship, a man and a woman having each other's back and being the closest of friends without romantic involvement, it might be one of my favourite constellations.

Mad Men is brilliant!

OMG yes, I loved this ep! I don't know about best ever, but only because I love "Shut the Door..." so much. :)

Also, my mom is just now catching up on Season 1, so while she was here, we watched the ones where Don makes Roger run up the stairs and he pukes, Pete with the chip 'n' dip/rifle exchange, and Betty shooting the pigeons. :D :D :D :D I forget sometimes how hilarious this show really is.

Anyway, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Peggy and Don. I love how much they get each other - and even if Peggy doesn't know Don's secrets, she understands him so well because he taught her how to live a life of secrets. I love how they open up to each other they way they can't with other people. (Can you imagine Don crying in front of anyone else?? Except Anna, and now she's gone... I think Don will need Peggy's emotional support even more now, without her.)

When Anna appeared with the suitcase, my mom immediately said, "Is it a Samsonite?" lol. I kind of expected that to show up in the pitch somehow.
