Trivia

Early in the episode, it is suggested that a client go see the musical "Bye Bye Birdie". Later, Don and Roger grumble about how even in biblical times there were probably men complaining about kids. While not specifically mentioned, the musical features a song called "What's the Matter with Kids Today?" See more »

Goofs

Pete & Trudy's new apartment is referred to as being at 83rd Street and Park Avenue, yet the interior shots of the apartment show that it is clearly of post WW2 architecture. All of the residential buildings at that intersection are of pre-WW2 design and construction. (Pre-war apartments were generally considered to be much more desirable, especially along Park Avenue.)

Quotes

Roger Sterling: What'd he do?
Don Draper: While we were busting our asses on the Bethelem Steel account he was at the Regis Hotel pitching copy. His copy!
Roger Sterling: That little snot!

'Can I have some of your hair?'
5 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

New Amsterdam, the 4th episode in the series, continues the amazing stride of the show. This is coming from someone who is currently watching the 4th season, and the changes some of the characters have gone through is amazing. Jon Hamm plays Don much lighter in this season than in the later ones, as does Betty. January Jones is a brilliant actress who's character transformation from this sweet, quiet Betty Draper persona to what will become a cold-hearted, mentally abused mother in Seasons 3 and especially 4 is really astounding, but it comes to prove how much people can change by how their lives are affected. In a way it is quite brilliant how I am looking back and catching up with this first season (since I started watching from season 2) but I am able to characterize things and appreciate them more.
