THE MAN IN THE IRON MASK

 

All those facial products had taken their toll over the years, leading some of his crueler competitors to attach this unflattering moniker to him. "At least it's better than having NO moniker", thought Cal. In the merchandising game, a moniker is all. Turning his attention to Peggy's protege, he knew that heroin chic was indeed the way to go. A nip here and a tuck there, and this beguiling woman would be Edie Sedgewick reborn. However, when the plan was presented to her, she expressed reservations, conserned that.....

?were against it and she stopped Cal in his tracks. When last seen, the young stunner was animatedly telling anyone who would listen that she was going to write best seller titled *Sex and the Swinging Girl* or something like that?Peggy and Cal and Dovima and Suzy and Edie headed for lunch at Voisin to figure out how to?

GIGOT

 

That new dance craze which swept New York like a tornado...they figured, at lunch it would be less crowded and therefore easier to get on the dance floor and learn the line-dance without too much crowding. They were wrond. Everyone was there including Cal and Peggy. Dang,we gotta work fast to out dance them and win the cup, they agreed. Suddenly Dovima came up with a good idea...let's just....

Dance, Fools, Dance

 

So they won the dancing trophy, while Donna was estactic, Cal and Peggy were furious. They were sure they were the best dancing couple on the floor. They both got a drink and started plotting a revenge of some kind. They were not so angry, as to come up with something dangerous, just something to get Donna's attention. Peg said I know let's:

Go Into Your Dance!

 

Peggy knew that Fred Astaire tried that strategy to get Marjorie Reynolds away from Bing Crosby in "Holiday Inn". In the movie, of course, Marjorie goes back to Bing at the end, but that's all she could come up with. It would surely get her attention and might just lead to a new moniker for Cal. Maybe he would then be referred to as

*The Dancing Fool*

 

As a serious designer this was not a moniker Cal wanted attached to his name. Meanwhile, Peggy had picked up the sensational bestseller *Sex and the Single Girl*. The title rang a bell and she thought back to the stunning creature she?d hoped would be part of the De Beers campaign and the book the girl vowed she would write. But the author of this tome was named Helen Girly something-or-other and looked like a ?mouseburger? in her dust jacket photo, so Peggy thought again. However, she knew Miss Girly-Whirly had started as a secretary at Foote Cone, become a copywriter, and now?celebritydom! Wow! Maybe Peggy herself could follow in Girly-girl?s footsteps and become?

but she needed to get her goals straight first before she could come up with a plan. This had been a very tiring day. She danced, she ate she tried clothes on, met some strange people. She had been downtown, midtown and uptown, crosstown all in one afternoon. She decided she'd better take the train back to Brooklyn. Just then, she looked up and saw......

WE'VE NEVER BEEN LICKED

 

She agreed with her alter ego, Mame. It's time to go home, get some rest and begin again in the morning. When morning came, she was rested and ready to do battle, again. She dressed and flew to the subway, and in to time she was back at the office. Everyone acted as if the night before had never happened...was she immagining the whole thing? Mame assured her that it all did happen and that they were plotting to drive her mad. She arose like a viper and...

*So Well Remembered*

 

the last time she behaved like this?and sat back down. She had a career to feed and care for and all of her paranoia about plots and madness had to be controlled. She called Joan and asked for a Milltown. Joan, with her doctor fianc?e, seemed to have a pharmacy at her fingertips, and had given Peggy tranquilizers before. After popping the pill, Peggy soon calmed down and began to think about?

THE SHUTTERED ROOM

 

where she had spent most of her childhood, because of her severe Histrionic Behavior disorder.

She vowed no one woild ever know about this unfortunate time in her life, and that she would take control of herself and never let it happen again. These office folk were going to be easy work, if only she would remember that room. All she had to do was to wait, listen and act..it was all in the timing. Biding her time would pay off big...she had to remember...

*The Rules of the Game*

 

Peggy knew the rules of Sterling Cooper and Madison Avenue as well as she knew the catechism of the Catholic Church. And unlike so many others, Peggy was adept at controlling her impulses and wild fantasies; this was just one trait that helped her rise in the world of advertising. Just then Ken and Sal came into her office and invited her out for?

WIth Six You Get Eggroll.

 

No, said Peggy. I would rather have sushi. Ken and Sal agree and off they went for a late night dinner. When they walked into Ho Si Gi, there was someone she had seen for years, but he did owe her several favors. Should she ask him, she thought to herself. Of course, I need some help and he is just the one to give it to me. She strode to his table. When he saw her coming, he tried to avoid her eyes, pretending he didn't know her, but she wasn't deterred. She said you owe me and I want you to:

*Play it as it Lays*

 

The guy hoped this meant buy her dinner, so he paid for their sushi and slipped out of the restaurant as quickly as he could, mumbling, ?Good to see you again, Patty? as he left. Peggy laughed. Well, she?d managed to get a free meal out of the creep. The night was still young and, before he left the office, Don had handed her two pair of tickets to the biggest show on Broadway. Sal called an old friend of his and asked if he?d like to come along with them to see?

THE ICE FOLLIES OF 1939

 

"OK, now it's official", thought Peggy. "There's been a Broadway revival of every musical ever made." She dutifully settled into her seat, cursing Don for what seemed like a cruel joke. Sal and his "friend" seemed to be having a ball, however, especially during the second act curtain-raiser featuring Dick Button and Peggy Fleming in the roles originated by Jimmy Stewart and Joan Crawford. "I don't get it", thought Peggy, "but I guess that's because I'm not...."

THE RARE BREED

 

But soon, she thought, they'd all be eating out of her hand. She decided she needed some attention, so she elected to leave for the ladies room, right in the middle of a quadruple axel. She had everyone's attention, but it was what she usually got...negative attention. Upon her return, she decided to try something more subtle. When everyone was reseated, she would...

She kissed Sal and his friend on their cheeks but gave Ken a long, full smooch that elicited gasps from those seated nearby. As she made her way from the theater Peggy realized Ken was right behind her. ?How about going for a drink?? he blurted out. ?I?d love to,? she responded, ?some other time. Tonight I?ve got a late date with?

MY SON JOHN

 

 

Damn...she let it slip that she had a child...that could put the brakes on everything unless she played her cards right. Instead of telling about a pregnancy at fourteen, by the town drunk, and his abandonment, and her roughing it on the streets, she made up a story about a friend dying and her adopting the child...it was an old story, but he seemed to believe it. Now she would have to include little John in all her conversations. Her approach would have to be altered...she would...

*About Face*

 

and explain that her slip of the tongue was actually a storyline for the Gerber?s campaign. Pete Campbell was so impressed with her concept that he treated her to dinner at Le Pavillon. They dined on chicken consomm? topped with twisted cheese sticks, lobster in cream sauce with rice, medallions of lamb with potato balls, and stuffed artichokes and cold capon in tarragon aspic, strawberries, ice cream, and petit fours. Oh yes, and champagne, lots of champagne. Peggy had loosened up considerably by the time dessert was served and suddenly demanded the waiter bring another?

BUNDLE OF JOY

 

Oops. Peggy had let it slip about the kid again. She was getting so fried that she was getting her potato balls mixed up with her cheese sticks. Gerber certainly wouldn't tolerate this sort of behavior from its ad reps. She knew she had to get a grip, and soon. Seeing her at such a disadvantage was giving Pete ideas, as memories of their one tryst flooded back into his mind. Peggy could see it in his eyes....those eyes. The eyes of her child. Peggy felt faint, and she felt the tears starting to well up, as she was overwhelmed by that all-too-familiar feeling of.....

*A Woman Under the Influence*

 

Slowly the effects of the champagne began to wear off and Peggy gradually remembered that Pete already knew about their child, she told him in his office that time he asked her in for a drink. Pete had been so upset about her giving up his child that he?d barely spoken to her since. Now she was uncertain why they were alone together at Le Pavillon tonight. Was this dinner a diversionary tactic, was Pete actually planning something?

Since Pete had admitted he loved her and grown tired of Trudy. Was it professional jealousy? What was Pete thinking? She needed to know his motives and didn't want the evening to end just yet, so she suggested they go back to her apartment where it had all began and they could......

MEET THE STEWARTS

 

The Stewarts were an impoverished couple that Peggy had taken in. They could earn their keep by tending little John and keeping house for her.... As they entered the apartment, the smell of real home cooking came from the kitchen. They were both hungry again, and sat down to a lovely repast prepared by the adoring Stewarts. Topping of dinner with a double chocolate chocolate four layer cake, they retired to the den to have some drinks. Suddenly they were both taken with an intense cramp. As they fell to the floor, they realized that the Stewarts weren't as kindly as they appeared. They begged for help, but the Stewarts just sat with pursed lips and a wild gleam in their eyes. The next few seconds would mean....

But Peggy had had enough of their silliness, packed up her suitcase and headed for Manhattan with Pete. Not wanting to complicate things, she asked him to drop her off at?

*Plaza Suite*

 

Sterling Cooper had a block of rooms always reserved at the Plaza and Peggy decided if she were going to have an illicit affair, she might as well do it in style. No more office couches, no more dumps in Bklyn. Peg and Pete were in the lobby of the Plaza, when Pete heard someone say......

*Move Over, Darling*

 

It was Trudy. She glared at Peggy over her shoulder as she dragged Pete out of the hotel and down the street. Peggy decided to relax, call room service and make plans for the weekend. But when she came into the office on Monday morning she was talking about nothing but a late Mass she?d attended at St. Patrick?s on Sunday. Jack and Jackie were in town for the weekend and she?d glimpsed them at the front of the church. Sal asked her if Jackie was?
