Mad Men Recap: "The Fog"

by at . Comments

Welcome to the world of Mad Men, Eugene Scott Draper!

Betty gave birth to a son this week and named him after her late father, much to the chagrin of Don. But the latter did appear to take out a new lease on life, inspired by a talk with a fellow expecting dad in the hospital waiting room. We'll see for how long that lasts.

Also, Pete and Peggy clashed over a surprising offer from Duck.

Read a lot more about both these developments in our episode recap of "The Fog."

Mad Men Quotes

It's been a pleasure working with you all. I wish you the best of luck.


Nostalgia - it's delicate, but potent. Teddy told me that in Greek, "nostalgia" literally means "the pain from an old wound." It's a twinge in your heart far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn't a spaceship, it's a time machine. It goes backwards, and forwards... it takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It's not called the wheel, it's called the carousel. It let's us travel the way a child travels - around and around, and back home again, to a place where we know are loved.
