When "Mad Men" Converges with My Mom-Mom's Advice

(Warning: spoiler for anyone who hasn't see last night's episode yet!)

I never actually heard my late grandmother say this, but my mom often quotes her as having quipped, "Hit 'im over the head with a frying pan!" as the solution to anyone who gives you grief (but in particular an irritating spouse). To this day, we still say it when one of us starts complaining to the other about someone annoying, or even when we see our favorite character on TV start to get bugged by someone. It's a handy phrase.

That expression came to mind after something unexpected happened during Mad Men last night.
