Favors A Favorite ****
10 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Don really shows his human side in this episode, both figuratively and literally.

When the Rosen's son is classified 1-A, he pulls out all the stops from getting the lad to be drafted and sent to Vietnam.

Don is against the war. He is doing this not because the boy, Mitchell, is Mrs. Rosen's son, but rather he is doing it for a conviction, something we haven't seen in this show in a while.

Of course, there are resulting problems when Don's daughter catches him in the act with Mrs. Rosen. Who knows what will be? This episode's prime line is one of morality.

Peggy does the best she can in trying to rid herself from a mouse in her run-down apartment. Does this show the best and worst in urban living?
