    • Don Draper: Has anyone tried to save this yet, besides Leopold and Loeb over here?

      Nathan Freudenthal Leopold, Jr. and Richard A. Loeb were two wealthy University of Chicago students who attempted to commit the perfect crime (a murder), but were caught and sentenced to life in prison. In this context, Don is accusing Ken Cosgrove and Freddy Rumsem of being high-achieving failures and potentially tanking an account.
