Mad Men Recap: "Seven Twenty Three"

by at . Comments

There was surprising sex and a major mugging this week on Mad Men, a pair of dramatic events that are likely to have an impact on Peggy and Don, respectively.

The latter was also forced to confront his future and actually sign a contract to remain at Sterling Cooper, something he desperately wanted to avoid.

By the end of the episode, however, he had no choice. How was Don blackmailed into signing this deal? And why does he no longer wish to speak to Roger Sterling?

Our recap of "Seven Twenty Three" has the answers.

Draper, Don

From Don to Betty to Roger, here's a look at a few of our favorite Mad Men quotes from the installment:

Don: They want me, but they can't have me.
Betty: You're right. Why would I think that has anything to do with me? | permalink
Duck [to Peggy]: I was just thinking of all the days I walked by you and didn't even notice. How is that possible? | permalink
Peggy [to Pete]: Stop barging in here and infecting me with your anxiety. | permalink
Roger: I watched the sunrise today. Couldn't sleep.
Don: How was it?
Roger: Average. | permalink
