Going Down? The 5 Essential Elevator Scenes on ‘Mad Men’

“New Business,” the April 12 episode of Mad Men, featured one of the show’s more awkward scenes in an elevator, or anywhere else for that matter. And that’s really saying something, considering the show has perfected the art of big drama in an small spaces. (In fact, according to the Wall Street Journal, the show has had nearly 60 elevator scenes.)

In the scene, Don (Jon Hamm) and his flavor-of-the-week Diana (played by Elizabeth Reaser) run into Don’s neighbor/former fling Sylvia (Linda Cardellini) and her husband Arnold (Brian Markinson), who shared his thoughts on Don’s many conquests, all while riding what can only be described as the world’s slowest, most stiflingly confined elevate in history. It was uncomfortable to say the least.

But, perhaps most shockingly, it wasn’t the most surprising thing to happen on an elevator in Mad Men. As we wind down to the final episodes of the Emmy-winning drama, we wanted to look at the five essential elevator scenes from Mad Men. From the sexy to the scary to the surprisingly hilarious, these are the elevator moments we’ll always associate with the series.
