Meredith ("Mad Men")


Good afternoon, Mr. Draper. Here is your coffee. Black, no sugar.

Your wife called while you were out. I told her you were in a meeting. Excuse me but I think you should probably change your shirt before going home. It smells of perfume.

Yes, Sir.  I'll be at my desk if you need me.

*Back at desk*

Oh, hi Cindy! No, I'm free. How are you? That's a cute suit. Where'd you get it?

Yes, he still makes me cover for him. Only he doesn't call it that. He says I should "manage people's expectations" -- which is his way of saying I shouldn't tell people he's out drinking or flirting with other women.

The things men get away with! I wonder if that will ever change...

  1. Squeal!!!

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this suit!!!

    I would wear this, and I'm not usually into suits. But the collar totally makes it! As does pairing the blue with the yellow.

    Cute commentary too, as always. ;) Pretend I'm Cindy; I'm saying back to you, "How are you? That's a cute suit. Where'd you get it?"

    1. Hi Cindy! I bought it at that new place in town. I blew my salary on it, but it was too adorable not to buy.

    1. Yes, it certainly is. I tried Mona to create a mature lady, the type of woman who is my mother's generation. I'm younger at heart and have more in common with Meredith.

  14. Awesome tribute, Ally! I really like how Meredith was included in the last episode. She was a supporting character, yes, but an important one (with the patience of a saint!) all the same and it wouldn't have been fair to her to have not made her a part of this amazing series final episode.
