Peggy Olson on Success
Stan: [Shaking Don’s hand] Way to go!
Don: You should be shaking her hand.
Megan: It’s just beginners luck. I’m going to go tell Peggy.
Don: Tell everybody.
Peggy: Megan, congratulations! Joan told me Harry said you sold Heinz.
Megan: Oh, you heard. I don’t want to take all the credit…
Peggy: Why aren’t you jumping up and down? I don’t know what the Canadian equivalent of baseball is but this is the equivalent of a home run.
Megan: Oh, we have baseball.
Peggy: Well this is a home run! I know what you did and it’s a big deal. And when it happened to me they acted like it happens all the time. It doesn’t. I tried to crack that nut. I mean if anything I should be jealous. But I look at you and I feel like I’m getting to experience my first time again. It’s a good day for me. This is as good as this job gets. Savor it.
Megan: You’re right. I will.
