Hat tip to Lee Fuoco for introducing us to Movie Line’s “Mad Men” Power Rankings. (Caution: If you haven’t been keeping up with Season Three, you’ll probably want to hold off.)
Speaking of “Mad Men,” a frank conversation about it last night revealed that one of us (guess) is seven episodes ahead of the other in Season Two. Picture this discussion over a post-voting dinner at Skyline:
ERIN: So what episode are we on again?
BEN: If by “we” you mean “me,” we’re on episode six.
BEN: I guess the real question is where “you” are.
ERIN: Well, just a little ahead of that.
BEN: By “little” do you mean, say, the last disc?
ERIN [turning red]: Well…
BEN: I thought so.
ERIN: It’s just that you’re so slow.
BEN: You didn’t finish the season already, did you?
[We continue eating in silence for several minutes.]
ERIN: I finished the season.
BEN: Yes, I figured.
ERIN: Honey, I can’t help it!
BEN: Don Draper is going to tear this marriage apart.
Curse you, Don!
