"They couldn't even afford to give us a whole reporter" (about the Korean War Vet--so inappropriate and yet funny).
"You know one of them is going to be leaving here with VD." (about the "wholesome bikini" guys).
And of course Harry's anguished: "I wish we had a second floor so I could jump out of it."

Nice callback to the Norwegian roommate fiasco. Wonder whatever happened to her.

"Did you enjoy the Fuhrer's birthday?"
"May he live for a thousand years!"
haha, it was definitely one of my favourite moments in the episode. It was a nice, light exchange after the rather depressing sham that was the Christmas party--especially since we knew the confrontation with Allison was going to be a mess.

I can't find the quote anywhere, and I might be wildly paraphasing. Anyone have an idea what I'm thinking of?

No Lee, the jockey smokes the cigarettes.
I can't stop laughing.

The fact that she says this in her bra and slip, with hands on the hips like an annoyed teacher really sells it for me.

Pete: "I found out yesterday that Head of Accounts is going to Kenny and his haircut."
Roger: "I'll bet there were people in the Bible running around complaining about kids today."

Peggy: "How can you laugh at that? It's like reading someone's diary."
Don: "Blankenship was a hell cat? Cooper has no balls? Roger's writing a book?"

Roger: "They're self-so-righteous!"
Mark (as the waiter brings him the phone again): "Yes, I'm that important."

Lane: "We're not homosexuals, we're divorced."
Roger: "With my hair you can't even see me in here." (on his office)
Roger: "Just when he got it through the door"

(After Conrad Hilton criticises him for not having family photos or a bible on his desk and being tardy) "Maybe I'm late because I was spending time with my family reading the bible."
And this week's: "You are twenty...something years old; it's time to get over birthdays." (That one hit close to home)

Also, Peggy to Miss Blankenship in her cataract goggles: "Nice to see you! I mean, good to see you! I mean . . . welcome back."

Such a great 'oh, snap' moment.

I can't believe anybody will ever think of Peggy as "humorless." As Trudy said, she's very witty.

Don: "Nostalgia - it's delicate, but potent. Teddy told me that in Greek, "nostalgia" literally means "the pain from an old wound." It's a twinge in your heart far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn't a spaceship, it's a time machine. It goes backwards, and forwards... it takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It's not called the wheel, it's called the carousel. It let's us travel the way a child travels - around and around, and back home again, to a place where we know are loved."
This line is SO brilliant!

Joan: That's life. One minute, you're on top of the world. The next, some secretary is running over your foot with a lawn motor.
Maybe it was more the context of the line than the actual line, but I was laughing right along with Don and Joan.
Plus, there's the ever blackly comic:
St. John Powell (ruefully): He'll never golf again.

Alice: You have your children to think of
Roger: I only have one

A lot of people have mentioned Pete's "When did we get a vending machine," but I liked what he said right before that: "What is going on out here? I was in the midst of an extremely important telephone call!" It was delivered so primly.
Reminds me of Betty's "very important brunch."

RIP Ms. Blankenship, you saucy astronaut.
