Arguably the best few minutes of the last season of television, and certainly the best of Mad Men. From the season finale.

by far, the best scene in the series

If this show were set in 2019, they would all be in golf shirts and Dockers.

When writers end scenes they typically trend toward too many words, thinking they have to explain what just happened. This scene ending respects the audience. "Good luck at your next meeting."

This series is a masterpiece, I was as stunned as the clients when I first saw this scene.

...And so in conclusion, what constitutes the greatest television scene of all time? This scene shall be the definition.

At least once, every year, I come back to this video. It hits home hard. IMO, one of the greatest scenes in television, AND movie history.

That thick but wispy smoke slowly drifting across the screen is a wonderful touch. Through the fog of memory and time

You got to love how Duck comes in the end with his smug as hell comment. Duck knowing that Don got Kodak trapped on a hook like a largemouth Bass.

Don telling the story of his old colleague Teddy and the Greek meaning of nostalgia is a great callback to his Rachel Menken lunch where she provides a similar explanation of the Greek meaning of "utopia". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBgyUXN1SY0

I'm pretty sure Don made up the part about Teddy telling him the meaning of nostalgia and he %100 lifted it from Rachel Menken. It just sounded better coming from Teddy.

This was a great, great scene and I really enjoyed the show. I do think MM whitewashed alcoholism somewhat. Believe me - if someone drank hard liquor the way DD did, over that length of time, the withdrawals and lasting effects would have been horrendous. I think they had a duty to show the reality of heavy drinking. BUT - aaaaanyway - that scene is wonderful and magical in a way that rarely happens on tv.

The best scene in television history, period. To me there is no competition.

This scene shows how great an actor Jon Hamm is... Even though he speaks rather normally, you can see pain and longing in his eyes. You can see in his eyes that he'd give just about anything to go back in time.

I wouldn't describe the Trauma bond 'device' called Nostalgia better. Deeper bond indeed of the 'Sweet Hearts' products to their handlers.

This is such a good scene. One of the best in movies and television. I can't help thinking back on this and realizing how many layers it has. Obviously the pitch to the company. And the reflection of precious time with his family he's wasting. But did anyone else notice it's kinda a pitch for the show? Like the show is really rare. It doesn't sit like most shows. It's not overly exciting and it's not funny and if someone asks you about your just like idk it's just good. Part of that is the nostalgia it's like he's saying hey this doesn't always formulate well but in the rare instance this is so powerful.... just like this show

Great acting by Jon Hamm. In less skilled hands it could have come across as corny.

Normally I don't respond to Hollywood attempts at pulling heart strings. In fact, I find most clumsy. This is a rare exception. It kicks me straight in the solar plexus. Being human can feel so irrational. Painful, even. Those profound regrets that bring a dark night of the soul.

Grew up in the 60s. Carousel was all it was ever called. Like Kleenex. Somebody would say "get out the carousel". Wonder if this nostalgia type of speech was actually how it was created.

I thought I would share a reply I made to someone else that was touched by this scene. Perhaps it will bring hope to others. **** ben wade What a sad and touching story. After 12 years of marriage my wife divorced me. She was suffering from depression at the time and was on medication that made things exponentially worse. The reason she gave for divorcing me was that I could never be happy with her. It was heartbreaking to hear her say that. Devastating, actually. To see her so sad and throwing away our marriage under such circumstances was unbearable to see and experience. No matter what I did to try and save the marriage only made her more resolute that it was the right thing to do. After the divorce we no longer had any contact with each other, but I continued to do the one thing I always did every year for her. I sent her in the mail a birthday card, a Thanksgiving card and a card for Christmas/New Years. My goal in doing so was to let her know that I would always love her and that I would always be there for her, even if just as a friend. In all my cards to her I simply signed them with my name. They were very loving cards but not in a romantic kind of way. All were also very positive and encouraging. I knew back then that as she initiating the divorce that most people that do regret that decision years later and it scars them horribly for life. I didn’t want that to happen to her. I made a pact with myself that I would at least wait as long as we were married to each other to see if one day she would make the decision to make contact with me again and that perhaps maybe we could be a couple again. I sent her those cards for 12 years, the same amount of time that we were married, as I promised myself I would, when one day out of the blue she came to see me where she first expressed her concern for my failing health, something she knew about, and then proceeded to pour her heart out to me and told me there was no one else since. Of course that was also the case with me. I stayed single all those years, for her. I kept my word to myself and silently to her and 12 years later we became a couple again. I told her many years back while we were married that I would be her husband for however long she wanted me to be her husband, and I meant it. Many husbands speak of their wives as if they are angels on earth, when let’s face it many are not. I've always been a very objective and logical person and when I say that my wife is an angel on earth, I mean it. There was a childlike innocence and love about her that initially attracted me to her. An innocence and love that never thought the worst of anyone. I can’t think of a better description of an angel on earth. I have truly been blessed. I know its been years since you made your post, but I wish you similar blessings in finding that one special woman for yourself. Don’t wait for it though. Make the positive and consistent effort to put into place the conditions that will make that happen. Decide to be happy and positive every minute of every day. Even if it doesn’t, at worst you will be a much happier person with yourself. God bless you my friend.

As I began my 40s this year, and as I'm witnessing my youngest children advance into their teen years this scene, which has always held me spellbound, now hits me on a whole new level. I feel like I understand it so much more personally now. When I look back at our old pictures, before we had kids, when our kids were young...everything was simpler then. We had less money and less things, but even the smaller things we did seemed more vibrant. We fought but our passion was so high. Now as time marches on things seem more routine, more drab. The possessions and money pile up but the spaces between us grow farther...and when I look back at the pictures I can suddenly travel back to when everything was more chaotic but the life was so tangible and exhilirating. I want to make sweeping changes to get it back. It's astonishing that a three minute television scene from years ago can still affect me so deeply and has actually taken on even greater meaning. This is tv at it's absolute best.

The saddest thing about this scene is that don has nothing to be nostalgic about. If I remember correctly, he was never truly happy with betty or his kids. He was miserable his whole life. His nostalgia is for a past that didnt exist, for a false image of a perfect family that he desperatrly wanted to belong to. I also love how he shutters a bit when he says "to a place where we know we are loved." He wants to feel that, but the feeling of Love is so foreign to him that he can't even recognize that he has it. He was just so busy crafting his image of success and status that he didn't realize he was creating an impenetrable shell around him.

Mad Men, first three seasons were outstanding. So many immaculate scenes. This is by far one of my favourite scene, next to the scene where "waters of babylon" plays in the background.

The absolute gold standard for Mad Men, DD scenes, and all TV scenes in general. This is pure, utterly profound poetry that manages to be both painfully revealing and powerfully poetic on many levels.

Anti-Spiral (8 months ago)
This scene screams irony. Don uses the slides of him and Betty as a model example of a happy marriage when it couldn't be further from the truth, and Harry breaks down buying Don's entire pitch. He walks out because he thinks Don's marriage is ideal and this scene came soon after Harry cheated on his wife.

How can Duck be so dismissive of Don's genius later in the show (after the merge) when he was present for this--the mother of all pitches?

This is tied with the last moments of season 6 as the best Mad Men scene. Close second would have to be when Layne punched out Pete.

This scene makes you wish you had parents like this, a wife that this, or husband like this. That's why it's so adored.
