Mad Man

I don't understand why I'm so attracted to Mad Men's Don Draper (and of course the man behind him, Jon Hamm). When I first heard about the Don, I was like, okay, how the hell can anyone get so attracted to a mysogynistc asshole?! Well, I still don't know how, but I seem to have fallen in that same category as well.

Jon Hamm's portrayal of the 60s creative director of Sterling Cooper has got my panties in a bunch -- despite his cheating, drinking, smoking, womanizing ways, I'm still so hot and bothered whenever he comes out on screen. Ask PB, I can barely contain myself whenever Don opens his mouth. His one-liners and pitches are just too much to handle.

It's too bad Jon Hamm didn't win a Golden Globe for this, but he sure as hell wins in my book. Winner or not, Jon Hamm brings the sexy back in the day. Sign me up for a quasi-mistress in season 3 because I'm up for that role for sure.

Don Draper on business

The day you sign a client is the day you start losing them.

Don Draper on Love

The reason you haven't felt it is because it doesn't exist. What you call "love" was invented by guys like me to sell nylons

Don Draper on Tomorrow

I'm pretty sure about it. You're born alone and you die alone and, and this world just drops a bunch of rules on top of you to make you forget those facts. But I never forget.

Don Draper on Happiness

Happiness is the smell of a new car... It's a freedom from fear. It's a billboard on the side of the road that screams with reassurance that whatever you're doing is okay. You are okay.

Don Draper on What Women Want

What do women want? You know better than to ask...

Don Draper defines a lie

It wasn't a lie. It was ineptitude with insufficient cover.

Don Draper on Sterling Cooper

I'm sure you do. Sterling Cooper has more failed artists and intellectuals than the Third Reich.

Don Draper tells people things

People want to be told what to do so badly that they'll listen to anyone.

Don Draper dishes advice

You'll realize in your personal life that at a certain point seduction is over and force is actually being requested

Don Draper doesn't break it to you gently

I hate to break it to you, but there is no big "Lie." There is no System. The universe is indifferent.

Jon Hamm on what you can't do

I see actors in this town who make it big young. They don’t understand the word no: ‘What do you mean I can’t kill this elephant, drop it on a car, set it on fire, and then snort it?’ Well, you just can’t.
