Roger Sterling insults Harry Crane with camp story on ‘Mad Men’

Roger Sterling has a way of delivering an insult with such charm, grace and sarcasm it’s not immediately apparent whether his insults are serious or not.

This is perfectly illustrated in the Mad Men episode “Lost Horizon” (Season 7, Episode 12) when Sterling (John Slattery) and Harry Crane (Rich Sommer) are talking in the empty offices of SC&P after its dissolving by parent company McCann Erickson.

After making a comment about Harry’s “growing hat size,” Roger tells him a one-line camp story: “You know, I once rode on a bus to camp sitting next to a guy like you,” Roger says. “We’re not going to be bunkmates, Crane.”
