Peggy Olson: I know what men think of you: that you're looking for a husband, and you're fun. And not in that order.
Joan Holloway: Peggy, this isn't China. There's no money in virginity.
Peggy Olson: I'm not a virgin.
Joan Holloway: No, of course not.
Peggy Olson: I just realised something. You ...
