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.

You are the product. You feeling something. That's what sells. Not them. Not sex. They can't do what we do and they hate us for it.

Doctor: So, Mr. Draper, you haven't had a physical in quite some time.
Don Draper: Yeah. I eat a lot of apples.

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.

Don Draper: (to Pete) The day you sign a client is the day you start losing one.
[a few minutes later]
Roger Sterling: The day you sign a client is the day you start losing him.
Don Draper: You don't really believe that.

Roger: What else is there?
Don: I don't know. Life being lived? I'd like to stop talking about it and get back to it

I hate to break it to you, but there is no big lie, there is no system, the universe is indifferent.

(speaking to a client) Listen, I'm not here to tell you about Jesus. You already know about Jesus, either he lives in your heart or he doesn't.

Betty: I liked your girl Peggy. She's fresh.
Don: As the driven snow.

Pete Campbell: I have ideas.
Don Draper: I'm sure you do. Sterling Cooper has more failed artists and intellectuals than the Third Reich.

Roger Sterling: I bet there were people in the Bible walking around, complaining about "kids today."
Don Draper: Kids today, they have no one to look up to. Cuz they're looking up to us.

Rachel Menken: It's hard to get caught in a lie.
Don Draper: It wasn't a lie, it was ineptitude with insufficient cover.
