what i love so so so so much about mad men is how it fits into the times it’s set in, like the elevator scene earlier in 3x5 where pete is talking to the elevator dude and the guy is like “we have a lot more to worry about than whats on television”, or how in a later scene peggy asks don for a raise because she doesn’t have equal pay, and this scene…… it’s not exactly commentary but a reflection of the time vs now and it’s soooooo interesting to watch how we react to it now. i love it so much
what’s even cornier are those posts like ADULTS FORCE YOU TO GO TO COLLEGE AND CHOOSE A CAREER FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE I JUST WANT TO TRAVEL THE WORLD, EXPERIENCE LIFE, AND BE IN THE WILD
boo hoo your parents are paying for you to go to college how do you think you’re going to travel the world when all you do now is watch reruns of Daria and make text posts about how you’re too scared to use a telephone to order delivery pizza
“In fact, all three of us been going places. Looking for things, searching for things. Going on adventures. They told everybody they were brother and sister. My brother didn’t want nobody to know. You know how people are. You tell them something, they start talking.”
Let my name have one more day in the sun before it disappears from the world.
