DON DRAPER
That's how this works. I pay you for ideas.
PEGGY OLSON
You never say 'thank you'.
DON DRAPER
That's what the money is for!

You just don't imagine her ever being alone. She was so famous.
HOLLIS
Some people just hide in plain sight.

PEGGY OLSON
That takes a lot of guts.
MICHAEL GINSBERG
I'll tell you what takes guts: never having money for lunch. She owes me, like, $15 at this point. What am I gonna do - ask Don? Call her? I think it's clear why she left.
PEGGY OLSON
That's not why.
MICHAEL GINSBERG
Well, why?
STAN RIZZO
Come on, reality got her. You work your ass off for months, bite your nails - for what? Heinz Baked Beans.

Your plate is full and frankly Mohawk is going to insist on a regular copy writer.
ROGER STERLING
Someone with a penis.
PEGGY OLSON
I'll work on that...

JOAN HOLLOWAY
Look at you, all in a snit!
PEGGY OLSON
Are you gonna watch me?
JOAN HOLLOWAY
What's wrong with you?
PEGGY OLSON
Honestly, why is it that every time a man takes you out to lunch around here, you're... you're the dessert!
JOAN HOLLOWAY
That's terrible.
PEGGY OLSON
It's constant from every corner. I'm from Bay Ridge. We have manners. Why can't they just leave it alone?
JOAN HOLLOWAY
[sarcastic] Because men always bother you all the time. They follow you down the street.
PEGGY OLSON
Well, not exactly...
JOAN HOLLOWAY
Look, dear, I don't know you that well, but you're the new girl, and you're not much, so you might as well enjoy it while it lasts.
PEGGY OLSON
Of course.
JOAN HOLLOWAY
Don't be that way! I'm just offering some perspective, that's all.
PEGGY OLSON
[forces a smile] Thank you, Joan.

Peggy! Take Danny over to Joan, he's starting next Monday.
PEGGY OLSON
Are you kidding?
DANNY SIEGEL
You will not be sorry.
DON DRAPER
Go away.

PEGGY OLSON
That went well.
HARRY CRANE
You have lipstick all over your teeth.
PEGGY OLSON
What?

PEGGY OLSON
Sex sells.
DON DRAPER
Says who? Just so you know, the people who talk that way think that monkeys can do this. They take all this monkey crap and stick it in a briefcase, completely unaware that their success depends on something more than shoeshine.

[Peggy enters Don's office with a ham] They sent one for each of us.
DON DRAPER
Could have just as easily fired us.
PEGGY OLSON
But they didn't because they sold more hams, and now you get to tell them why, if you want. I think they'll be impressed.
DON DRAPER
Well, I'm not. I try and stay away from these kinds of shenanigans, but I guess you knew that or you would have told me.
PEGGY OLSON
It was going great, until it wasn't.
