Okay. OKAY. I got a little behind. I got into various incarnations of Law and Order, and Time Warner changed the channel that AMC is on, and whatever, don’t judge me okay? Just because I didn’t watch the last episode of the season doesn’t make me a bad fan. I got around to it. On a holiday weekend. Nine months later.
Military Base in Cuba:
Khruschev: *builds nuclear weapons*
Castro: *lets him*
Americans: *freak out*
Sterling-Cooper Employees: *drink heavily*
2008 Audience: *gets nostalgic*
Fr. Colin Hanks: We are all sinners. But we should all admit it. Even, some would say especially, that sweet-looking young lady in the back. Do you hear me, young lady I do not have a relationship with?
Peggy: Dude. I’m calling the archdiocese.
Betty: *is pregnant*
Betty: *is pissed*
Betty: *drinks a gimlet*
Baby Draper: *develops flippers*
Peggy: So…I brought muffins. For the nuclear war.
Fr. Colin Hanks: Aww, that’s great. They should come in handy.
Peggy: So how about this bomb thing, huh? Makes you feel like the world could end at any minute.
Fr. Colin Hanks: I know, but that’s really always the case.
Peggy: Makes you feel alive…
Fr. Colin Hanks. Yeah. Totally. You know, sometimes I feel like God called me to this parish. To reach you.
Peggy: Um…like, physically?
Fr. Colin Hanks: Hell is very real, Peggy! Unless you repent, you could be damned for all eternity.
Peggy: Wow. I thought you were going somewhere else entirely with that.
Fr. Colin Hanks: I’m sure I don’t know what you’re talking about. Are you going to confess?
Peggy: Are you still going to stare at my ass?
Fr. Colin Hanks: DON’T INTERRUPT ME WHEN I’M PROSELYTIZING.
Peggy: I should have just sent my sister with the nuclear holocaust muffins.
Sterling-Cooper: *is sold to Mr. Sheffield from The Nanny*
Don: *gets rich*
Morena: OH MY GOD MR. SHEFFIELD!!! YOU GOT OLD!!!
Later that day, Sterling-Cooper Offices:
Sleazy Campbell: Wanna ride out the nuclear winter with me?
Peggy: Meh. Might as well. We’re all going to die anyway.
Sleazy Campbell: Why don’t we every talk anymore?
Peggy: Easy there. The last time we talked, I had to fake a complicated relationship with food for nine months and now my mom and my priest think I’m going to hell.
Sleazy Campbell: I’m confused.
Peggy: Yeah. Tell me about it.
Sleazy Campbell: …
Peggy: *waxes nostalgic about pregnancy for awhile*
Sleazy Campbell and Rest of Audience: *tunes out*
Draper Residence, President Kennedy just told everybody everything is going to be just peachy.
Don: *sits in silence*
Betty: *sits in silence*
Don and Betty: *hold hands significantly*
I miss this show. So. Much.
