Glen, creepy sad Glen, delivers line of the year.
“Everything you think is going to make you happy just turns to crap,” Glen, Season 5, Mad Men. I don't watch much TV outside of PBS Front Line, nature, history and science shows. But I love Mad Men. And last nights episode was a great one with the most quotable line yet from the series, or from anything since the Sinfeld series gave us a hundred of em. It was high TV, rare indeed. And Glen, if you don't watch much is a kid who has only had a few lines in all of the 5 seasons, was creepy as hell when he was little, but now he is maturing a little, is a target for bullys at his boarding school, and they gave him the line of the year, maybe the line of the series. OK, if you didn't see it, it may not look like much, but it was a wrenching observation.
