Gloria and Betty … Silly Women Posted by B.Cooper on January 5, 2015 at 9:18 am Characters, Mad Men, Season 2, Season 4 Jan 052015 Watching The Inheritance … Betty calls Gloria a silly woman, which is exactly what Henry’s mother calls Betty two seasons later. 9 Responses to “Gloria and Betty … Silly Women” Jared S. says: January 5, 2015 at 10:47 pm More Betty irony: She has had a snide attitude towards Don being remarried to a much younger woman, even though the gap between her age and Henry’s is probably even greater than that of Don and Megan. I wonder if Henry’s ex-wife sneeringly refers to Betty as “your child-bride.” Susan F. says: January 6, 2015 at 1:48 am Have we ever seen Henry’s first wife? I bet she would make a great addition to the story…if it wasn’t ending in just 7 episodes. By the way, Gloria was a great character! I loved the line Betty says, “That women was trying to pick up men at funerals!” Wasn’t that was the weekend of the aluminum sliding twins and Roger’s heart attack? jahnghalt` says: January 6, 2015 at 5:34 pm “Wasn’t that was the weekend of the aluminum sliding twins” I’ll have to ask Mirabelle about that. Polly Draper says: January 6, 2015 at 10:33 pm Mirabelle was too busy “horsing around” — ask Eleanor! Nevada says: January 7, 2015 at 12:38 pm No, I don’t think we have ever seen Henry’s first wife. And, yes, it was that episode: S1.10 Long Weekend – I’ve just re-watched that season in a slow-burn build up to the last episodes. MadChick says: January 8, 2015 at 1:34 pm Although I think it was Megan’s age that bothered Betty the most…she told someone (Francine?) that Megan was “20 years old.” Which wasn’t true — IRC, Megan was at least 25 by the time she and Don married. Aurora says: January 6, 2015 at 6:06 pm Maybe it’s karma for Betty’s attitude toward Gloria. Liz Moore says: January 7, 2015 at 1:56 am There isn’t a major character on that show that I don’t find silly. Peg4Prez says: January 17, 2015 at 2:04 pm I think the usage of the word “silly” in this way is a sixties euphemism, used by privileged women to dismiss & disparage anyone of their sex they found….stupid, desperate, unworthy. Good connection, B Cooper! So nice to visit Le Basket again, it’s been a long time. And so excited/sad/nervous about upcoming denouement! Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
