“The season finale of Mad Men offered up something that everyone can agree is fun to watch: weasely Pete Campbell, getting his lights punched out,” as Trainjotter points out in “Connecticut Man Decked on New Haven Line Train, Twice:”
Howard levels Pete, who then is told to apologize by a conductor.
Pete and the conductor share some harsh words:
Conductor: ”I’m about to throw you off.”
Pete: ”Go ahead, you fat piece of crap.”
Conductor: ”I am an officer of the New Haven line.”
Pete: “Well, I’m the president of the Howdy Doody Circus Army.”
But a commenter notes something interesting:
The conductor calls, “Next stop, Harrison!” after the fight.
G. Francis writes, “I’m proud to assume that all of the Pete punching happened within the village of Mamaroneck. We should put up a plaque.”
Question: Was Pete mauled in Mamaroneck?
