Mad Men: Set Me Free Transcript

Chorus:

Set me free, why don’t you babe

Get out my life, why don’t you babe

‘Cause you don’t really love me

You just keep me hangin’ on

You don’t really need me

But you keep me hangin’ on

Betty: You don’t listen to me.

Rachel: You don’t want to run away with me, you just want to run away.

Joan: You don’t-/Betty: You don’t-/Bobbi: You don’t-

Trudy: You don’t speak to me that way!

Jane: I’m just trying to do my job.

Peggy: I’m just trying to do my job, and you’re making it very difficult.

Peggy: That’s my job?

Lois: I’m good at my job.

Peggy: I do my job.

Suzanne: Do I have to worry about my job?

Chorus:

Set me free, why don’t you babe

Get out my life, why don’t you babe

‘Cause you don’t really love me

You just keep me hangin’ on

You don’t really need me

But you keep me hangin’ on

Rachel: You were expecting me to be a man. My father was, too.

Peggy: I never expect him to be any other way than what he is.

Joan: I forgot for a second that you’re incapable of doing something nice without expecting something nicer in return.

Faye: It all comes down to what I want versus what’s expected of me.

Set me free, why don’t you babe

Get out my life, why don’t you babe

Set me free, why don’t you babe

Get out my life, why don’t you babe

Carla: You best stop talking now.

Rachel: If I weren’t a woman, I’d be allowed to ask you the same question.

Joan: I am not your darling and I don’t want your kisses!

Peggy: Is that a threat? Because I’ve already taken somebody up on one of those tonight.

Faye: I chose to be where I am. I don’t view it as a failure.

Peggy: And I am not scared of any of this.

Chorus:

Set me free, why don’t you babe

Get out my life, why don’t you babe

‘Cause you don’t really love me

You just keep me hangin’ on

You don’t really need me

But you keep me hangin’ on

    I’ve been meaning to watch Mad Men and just never got around to it.

    Meanwhile, I am eagerly awaiting April 1 and April 14.

    @Attackfish: Fuck yeah, been waiting a few years for new Avatar. I didn’t see the first one until it was done, so I don’t know if I will be able to stand watching it weekly.
