Christina Hendricks On Joan’s Rapey Ex-Husband

"Well, everyone knew [Joan's husband] had to go at some point, right? I mean, you can't rape your wife in the office and not expect to go away. ... It was the first time it was mentioned and I think it was a long time coming, for the audience in particular. I think everyone kept thinking…

(Another) Quote of the Day: Joan Holloway Inspired By “Sex And The Single Girl”

"I read Sex and the Single Girl and Sex and the Office before [both written by former Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief, Helen Gurley Brown, in 1962 and 1965, respectively] — not before the pilot, because I didn’t know about it at that point — but after the pilot, and before we started season one.

Mad Men: Joan Holloway’s Date Rape Probably Not That Rare

Last night's "Mad Men" had an all-too-rare subplot involving Joan and her betrothed, The Handsome Doctor .
