Herman 'Duck' Phillips: Anyway, he was quite clear about the fact that they're gonna want to make changes if they want the dust to settle fast.
Don Draper: What does that mean?
Bertram Cooper: It means they'll be looking for a new image and thus a new agency.
Don Draper: What's it been - four, three hours since the plane went down? You'll have to forgive me for not looking at a bunch of bodies in Jamaica Bay and seeing the opportunity.

Gives Hope to the Second Season
22 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

"For Those who Think Young" was certainly no masterpiece. But that wasn't a surprise. Season premieres (not counting season 1) are very rarely good episodes. The only exception I can think of is "House of Cards," "Chapter 14." Also, that doesn't count "Sherlock."

But in this episode, the season quickly turns itself around. It was the first episode they mentioned to be nominated for Best Drama, and it helped attain the win.

In the episode, a plane crashes, changing everything. Peter and the gang make jokes, not realizing Peter's own father died in the crash. When he gets the news, the episode progresses from there. Hence the name.

This episode features some of the best writing in the show so far. In fact, I'd say it's the best writing since "Long Weekend." The dialogue is pertinent and extremely natural, especially for such a unique writers' room. I almost think the episode was made just to test everyone's acting abilities. Don gets mad, Betty's quietly angry at Don, Peggy has a new child, and Peter lost his father. And they all do a fantastic job, but, for the first time ever, the MVP award goes not to Jon Hamm, but to Vincent Kartheiser (Peter Campbell).

The best episode in Season Two so far.
