MAD MEN: "Vostok" - PAGE 27



  • INT. STERLING COOPER AD AGENCY - DAY
  • Paul (shaking out a smoke), KEN COSGROVE and HARRY CRANE are not-very-discreetly ogling Joan as she walks to meet up with Hildy, Allison and Marge on the other side of the room. Salvatore notices this as he walks up to join the guys, taking out his lighter for Paul.
  • SALVATORE
  • Those heels. Like she’s walking on two Chrysler buildings.
  • Salvatore holds out his lit Zippo. Paul lights his cigarette from it. Joan confers with the girls.
  • KEN
  • I’m not sure I understand that.
  • PAUL
  • I have this theory about redheads.
  • SALVATORE
  • I think we all have a theory about redheads, right?
  • KEN
  • I’ve tested that theory.
  • SALVATORE
  • If you mean Tammy from traffic services, I seem to remember her being a blonde before last Easter.
  • PAUL
  • Yeah. She’s not a blonde either.
  • Gets questioning look from Ken.
  • HARRY
  • What’s your theory?
  • PAUL
  • It’s a stop sign from God. He’s saying “this one is out of your league, move along.”
  • KEN
  • If that were true, there wouldn’t be any redheads.
  • PAUL
  • There’s always the guy that can run the red, no pun, and never gets a ticket. Right, Sal?
  • SALVATORE
  • I suppose.
  • KEN
  • (amused)
  • He supposes.
