Any of the montages, the Bye Bye Birdie scenes, and Joan playing the the accordion.
Pete/Peggy during the Cuban Missile Crisis
The Joan / Jaguar salespitch
With out a doubt when Peggy told Pete about the baby that she gave up for adoption and that it was his.
Pete/Peggy’s end of S2 convo, the whole new start-up/end of S3, the lawnmower incident - pure brilliance!, Pete’s hunting fantasy, Kodak
Roger Sterling’s first LSD trip, the opening scene of the pilot, and I’m sure that there are way more than I could put in this box
peggy and pete having sex in his office
Don vs. the beatniks in s01e08, Don’s Jaguar speech in The Other Woman and every Don/Joan scene
Season 4 Episode “The Suitcase.” It is so well acted by Elisabeth Moss and Jon Hamm and the scenes between them are beautiful.
The Carousel, and the moment when you realize what Joan has done to get Jaguar.
The Carousel sales pitch from Season 1 and Season 4’s The Suticase. An absolutely stunning and groundbreaking piece of television!
Don and Peggy moments, especially her resignation in 5. But also Ken when he is describing the Rothko in 2, “you could fall right in” Chills.
I would have to say the scenes where Don and Betty have dinner with the owners of Utz snacks along with Jimmy and Bobbi Barrett.
Either 2nd or 3rd. I think I’d have to go with the 3rd in the end because of how it finished off. “Shut the Door, Have A Seat” is perfect.
The scene where Betty confronts Don about his past and real name.
the end of Season 3
Peggy to Pete (season 2 episode 13): “I had your baby and I gave it away.”
When the Partners decided to create their own company in a weekend and made Mr Price fire them
2nd to last episode of the 5th season, Lane’s suicide, and all of his character development, is, to me, the pinnacle of Mad Men brilliance.
i loved the betty-glen scene at the end of season 1, it was so genuine. And obviously all the peggy-don dynamic, especially “the suitcase” ep
Don taking hold of Peggy’s hand at the very end of “The Suitcase”
ALL 5 but the 1st and the 5th
Don’s Kodak carousel pitch, and Don and Peggy’s scene at the bar in the Briefcase episode.
