Dans le pilote de la série "Who's the boss" (Madame est servie) :
Tony: Mrs. Rossini, take care of yourself, okay?
Mrs Rossini: You too, Tony.
Mrs Rossini: But I'm telling you, you're gonna miss the heartbeat of the city. The excitement, the culture.
Man: Hey, shut up down there! I'm trying to sleep!
Mrs Rossini: Go sit on your hard hat.
Explanation: je crois que l'origine de l'expression est militaire, les soldats envoyés au combat devaient passer la nuit dans l'avion ou le bateau, assis sur leurs casques, au lieu de rentrer chez eux.
