"The moon belongs to everyone. The best things in life they're free."
The coup led by Roger Sterling in Mad Men's midseason finale may not be as impressive a feat as the Apollo 11 crew landing on the moon, but both could have easily ended in disaster. And while both missions were successful — though in the case of Sterling Cooper & Partners, with one casualty — Don Draper is reminded once again that success isn't the only thing that matters...
