Mad Men "Christmas Waltz": A Little Don & Joan Goes a Long Way

Everyone's favorite non-couple Don (Jon Hamm) and Joan (Christina Hendricks) share a moment.
Perhaps it has to do with not wanting to burn out screens across the country, but it seems Matthew Weiner hasn't gone to the Don & Joan well near enough throughout the years. For "Christmas Waltz," it was their tipsy time at the bar, with Doris Day singing the title song on the jukebox, that anchored the episode. The rest of the various story lines (Pryce's tax problems, Paul Kinsey's return as a Hare Krishna) quickly melt away in memory.
