“If only Peggy would see what’s right in front of her: Her relationship with Stan is the best thing that’s ever happened to her. Another petition: Every episode must involve these two talking on the phone (“Tuesday is perfect.” “I will have your wig ready then, ma’am.”). Stan and Peggy are one of the few healthy couples the show has ever depicted, but Peggy’s always had a terrible time mixing friendship and romance. She and Don worked so well together because they never slept together; because that wasn’t on the table, they were able to establish true intimacy.
Wouldn’t it be lovely if Peggy were able to perceive that Stan doesn’t regard her talent as threatening? Wouldn’t it be great if she could see that he finds her intelligence attractive and her creativity invigorating? There are many different ways to define the word “collaborator,” but Stan and Peggy are the best kind: They’re two like minds who care about similar things and come together (at least on the phone) to enjoy similar mindsets and to encourage each other.”
