Vincent Kartheiser Says Pete’s No Rapist

“It says in the scene, ‘she kisses him back.’ After she kisses me back, then we’re supposed to copulate. I don’t know why but she wouldn’t kiss me back!

If “Mad Men” Made Kids’ Books

Lord knows no one would make “Mad Men” into those Mr. Men kids’ books because they’d quickly have to explain alcoholism and why Mr. Draper is humping the secretary. But if it did happen, we bet “Mad Men” kids’ books would look just like this!
