I've recently started watching, and I'm hooked. @TelecomWiz I noticed you use Don Draper as your avatar. What's your favorite one-liner from the show? What's your favorite product you've seen him pitch?

@RoyGBiV76: I'll let "Don" speak for me....
The Kodak Carousel : https://youtu.be/suRDUFpsHus
Jaguar : https://youtu.be/L16G3CzRpbQ
These two get to the heart of understanding clients, motivation, etc.

Favorite quotes -
Everyone loves "thats' what the money is for!" : https://youtu.be/w2MV-x924KA
This one gets to the root of advertising : https://youtu.be/fjg5TuXV09U
(and if you doubt that one, just remember that "Mothers' day", and "Fathers' day" were essentially invented by Hallmark cards.
Oh, and don't forget to watch 'Route 66" : https://youtu.be/1nbRoyJXSfQ (at least for the cool theme song)

I loved the Chevy pitch (even though it was in a bar and they thought they'd already lost). It's amazing to me how Jon Hamm just turns it on and off. Even when he's tripping on whatever that Dr gave them in the office, he's so right when Don says (paraphrased) "It's very important that the customer hear the timbre of my voice"
My all time favorite lines from the show are not sales related, but more about how they run their business:
Don - "Here's what I need you to do... I need you to get a cardboard box... and put all your things in it"
Sterling - "It looks like Iwo Jima out there!"
Crane- "He could lose his foot..."
Sterling - "And just when he got it in the door..."
