episode 408 of madmen is so far my favorite. we were treated with a new voice-over - a new don on the mend - and a new outlook. loved the pensive thoughts. the writing things down - the turn in narrative.

LOOOOOOOOVED the floating-in-the-pool scene. love that stuff.

quotes i had to go back to and record:

(on swimming)
"its an effort to get in the water, but once you do, you are weightless and you don't even sweat. Then, in the end, you are rung out." and then she looks at him and says: "i've been looking forward to this." LOVE THAT.

"we are flawed because we want so much more.
we are ruined because we get these things, and wish for what we had."

and i also loved the quote about sleeping alone - about always having cold spots to look forward too, to warm.

its don on the mend, and its hot.

i always love gawker's reviews. adds lots of humor and insight.
