But Betty reminded him that he had told her that those shoes were the most comfortable pair of shoes he ever had. Daniel said it is best if people don’t the brands of shoes he wore because the press have a way of twisting things and that they also have to twist the truth as a way of protecting themselves against the them. Daniel then told her he had a meeting with Natalie Whitman – a popular actress who Betty admires. They talked about how the actress put on about 30 pounds each time she starred her recurring film role, and how she doesn't seem to lose the weight again afterwards. Daniel then asked Betty if she wanted to be part of the meeting. Betty was excited as she accepted the offer.
Then, we see Wilhelmina in the conference room, with Daniel, Natalie Whitman, the actress and another lady looking at Whitman’s pictures on a laptop. They were editing a photograph to the flabby areas. Whitman was not pleased with the editing that has been done to her image; her under-arms were reduced, her bust was elevated. (Betty looked horrified seeing all the changes)
Daniel then told Wilhelmina in front of the staff that he should be getting The Book from now on, since his was now the Editor-in-Chief. Wilhelmina tried to play her usual tricks by saying that with his present responsibility, he would be too busy to look through the book but Daniel stood his ground that it was part of his ‘responsibility’ and she said as he wished smiling but as soon as she turned her back she was as mean looking as ever.
While Betty and Daniel walked from the conference room to their offices she commended that he was strong and editorial in the way his stood his ground with Wilhelmina. Daniel was obviously pleased with himself and said that it was his responsibility. He advised Betty that when faced with a decision that has to do with the magazine she should go with the vibe in the room and Betty said “even though I don’t agree?” Daniel said if it was best for the magazine and he sent her back to the conference room to get his PDA which he forgot there. As she walked by her desk, she noticed that her pink bunny wasn’t on her desk anymore. She asked the other staff around her but they all looked at her and went back to what they were doing, ignoring her.
In Wilhelmina's office, Marc was seated on the floor in front of her luxurious couch on which she was seated, massaging her feet. She complained bitterly about the way Daniel embarrassed her before all the staff. Wilhelmina then cooked-up a plan to leave the untouched, normal photograph or Whitman in the book because she knows that Daniel would not notice them and if it is printed in the magazine the way it is there would be chaos that will result into loss for the magazine. Marc commended his boss for her cleverness.
Back to Betty again, as she got to the conference room, she saw Natalie Whitman sitting by the laptop looking very unhappy. She was reducing her image to become thinner and thinner until there was just a vertical line left.
