I'm living like there's no tomorrow, because there isn't one.
Keep it up, and even if you do get my job you'll never run this place . You'll die in that corner office, a midlevel executive with a little bit of hair who women go home with out of pity. Want to know why? Because no one will like you.
Draper? Who knows anything about that guy? No one's ever lifted that rock. He could be Batman for all we know.
Why's it so hard for you people to give me anything?

Sterling Cooper has more failed artists and intellectuals than the Third Reich.
How do you sleep at night?
On a bed made of money.
I hate to break it to you, but there is no big lie, there is no system. The universe is indifferent.

You know what my father used to say? 'Being with a client is like being in a marriage. Sometimes you get into it for the wrong reasons, and eventually they hit you in the face.'

A wooden leg... They're so cheap they can't even afford a whole reporter.
If I wanted to see two negroes fight, I’d throw a dollar bill out my window.
I like sleeping alone, stretching out like a skydiver. Cool patches to roll onto. I just appreciate it more.
I really think this vending machine is a trouble maker.
I think it's been a great success. Revenue is climbing. I was gonna suggest we get a sandwich machine. We'd probably get 40% of the work force keeping busy through lunch.

She died as she lived. Surrounded by the people she answered phones for.
They're gonna fire everybody. Or worse: Make me fire everybody.
(Enters room) Well, it's been a pleasure working with you all. I wish you the best of luck. (After resigning from his position)
I didn't think they'd start with him.
