The Wrote and the Writ

Once again, why 'Mad Men' is the best-written show on television

  • Peggy: Why didn't you tell me you had a family? Your father's nice.
  • Ginsberg: He's not my real father. People don't understand.
  • Peggy: Are you adopted?
  • Ginsberg: Actually, I'm from Mars.
  • Peggy: (laughs)
  • Ginsberg: It's fine if you don't believe me, but that's where I'm from. I'm a full-blooded Martian. Don't worry, there's no plot to take over Earth. We're just displaced.
  • Peggy: Okay...
  • Ginsberg: I can tell you don't believe me. That's okay. We're a big secret. They even tried to hide it from me. That man -"my father" - told me a story I was born in a concentration camp, but you know, that's impossible. And I never met my mother because she supposedly died there - that's convenient. Next thing I know, Morris there finds me in a Swedish orphanage. I was five. I remember it.
  • Peggy: That's incredible.
  • Ginsberg: Yeah. And then I got this one communication. A simple order: "Stay where you are."
  • Peggy: Are there others like you?
  • Ginsberg: I don't know. I haven't been able to find any.
