Peggy: This is supposed about my job, not the meaning of life.
Don: So you think those things are unrelated?
Peggy: I didn't know you'd be in a mood.
Don: Do you want to do this or not?
Peggy: Why don't you just write down all your dreams so I can shit on them?

Don: What do you see for the future?
Peggy: Well, um...is that on there?
Don: No, I'm just curious.
Peggy: I'd like to be the first woman creative director at this agency. [Don grins] That's funny to you?
Don: No, I'm impressed that you know exactly.

Peggy: Ted told me I have to fill out my own performance review.

Peggy: Should we have lunch?
Joan: I want to burn this place down.
Peggy: I know. They were awful. But at least we got a yes. Would you have rather had a friendly no?
Joan: I don't expect you to understand.
Peggy: Joan. You've never experienced that before?
Joan: Have you, Peggy?
Peggy: I don't know. You can't have it both ways. You can't dress the way you do and expect...
Joan: How do I dress?
Peggy: Look, they didn't take me seriously, either.
Joan: I don't dress like you because I don't look like you and that's very true.
Peggy: You know what? You're filthy rich. You don't have to do anything you don't want to!

Peggy: No. Cancel it. What about the moon landing?
Don: It was a success.
Peggy: No, DON, I have to talk to people who just touched the face of God about hamburgers!

Don: I worry about a lot of things, but I don't worry about you.
Peggy: What do you worry about?
Don: That I never did anything and that I don't have anyone.

Does this family exist anymore? Are there people who eat dinner and smile at each other without watching TV?

Don: Well, whenever I'm really confused about an idea, first I abuse the people whose help I need and then I take a nap.
Peggy: Done.
Don: Then I start at the beginning and see if I wind up in the same place.

Don: How's it going?
Peggy: Did you park your white horse outside? Spare me the suspense and tell me what your save the day plan is.
Don: I don't have anything yet. The idea I had wasn't great.
Peggy: It wasn't great. It was terrible. I wanna hear the real one. Or are you just gonna pull it out during the presentation?
Don: This idea is good. I think we can get the client to buy it.
Peggy: No you don't or you wouldn't have questioned it.
Don: I'm going to do whatever you say.
Peggy: So you're going to pitch the hell out of my shitty idea and I'm going to fail.
Don: Peggy, I'm here to help you do whatever you want to do.
Peggy: Well, how do I know?
Don: That's a tough one.
Peggy: You love this.
Don: Not really. I want you to feel good about whatever you're doing. That's just the job.
Peggy: What's the job?
Don: Living and not knowing.

Peggy: Well it's just um. I just wanted you to know that I tried your kids' point of view and it's not good.
Don: (laughs) Well it was great hearing from you.
Peggy: Well I know now that you're presenting that you're prone to more serious thought and I just want you to know this one's a loser.
Don: I'm always working Peggy.
Peggy: Why are you undermining me?
Don: From now on I won't express myself.
Peggy: Well, not it's tainted. It's poisoned because you expressed yourself.
Don: If you don't want to do it, don't do it.
