Goofs

The Drapers and the Hobarths are shown enjoying alcohol during intermission of the Broadway show "Fiorello!" but Broadway theaters did not sell alcohol in 1960. Concessions at Broadway theaters at the time were very limited and, until bars were installed in the early 1970s, the commonly available beverage was an off-brand orange drink sold in a carton.

Quotes

Peggy Olson: I know what men think of you: That you're looking for a husband, and you're fun. And not in that order.
Joan Holloway: Peggy, this isn't China. There's no money in virginity.

Engaging and Complimentary
12 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After having an episode that focused much on the past, we go back to see how the characters are doing in their present lives.

Betty Draper seems to get an offer that makes her excited, but it soon becomes evident that it wasn't for her. Peggy suffers from weight gain, and her conversation with Joan makes her, and the audience, realize that every time Joan interferes with Peggy it is because she actually cares for her, despite the first instinct that tells us she is out to hurt her appearance. It all has to do with Joan's manner, and both Moss and Hendricks could not play each other better. Of course, Jon Hamm and January Jones keep proving how damaged they can be, and Jones especially shines here, showing her subtle and vulnerable side.
