Pete Campbell: You ever been hunting, Peggy?
Peggy Olson: No, I don't think so.
Pete Campbell: You either have or you haven't. I went a couple of times with my uncle. New Hampshire.
Peggy Olson: I saw my cousin shoot a rabbit by Coney Island.
Pete Campbell: It's an incredible sensation. You have to be very quiet. Take it down with the first shot or you scare it away. And sometimes you have to go up and finish it off.

Good Episode for Kartheiser
26 August 2008 | by (Valley Stream, New York) – See all my reviews

Vincent Kartheiser was really good again. Funny when he was returning the dip thing "If you gave me cash I would spend it on you" and then the scene where he describes hunting. A little corny but he sold it. January Jones really looked great in the scene with the pregnant neighbor while drinking the wine and her acting was fine too. The walk up the stairs was funny as well. The Nixon political stuff was interesting but I did think about the fact that they were on the side of the loser but I guess that can be as interesting as being on the winning side maybe. The Dinner party scene was very good. John Slattery was funny.
