Snippet 25 - Ugly Betty Recovers Daniel's Watch

Amanda handed her the watch without saying anything and ran to the ladies with Betty hot on her trail.

Betty didn’t find it funny at all. She scolded her for letting her run around the city looking for the watch when it was in her possession all the time. Amanda started crying and said the reason why she did not say anything was because she hoped that, that was the one night she thought Daniel would remember. Betty asked her if Daniel knew the way she felt about him? Betty told her she was sure he feels the same way too. Amanda said she had to endure taking messages from ladies from him and now she is sending them flowers. Betty asked why she did not let him know and she said she thought he would one day get tired of serial dating. Betty asked her that what if he doesn’t and Amanda said he will, that she’ll just wait. Betty gave her the watch to take to him herself and let him know how she felt about him but she declined. She composed herself and told Betty that, that conversation never happened. She then cat walked to her office.

Wilhelmina had tried on the dress and it fit perfectly. She was however not convinced that Christina ordered for the actual size she requested for the label and Christina lied that she ate it. Wilhelmina was in the end able to get the truth out of her and at loss on what to do she sat down and the gown rip at the back. Christina wanted to take a look and suggested fixing it but she told her to leave it. Wilhelmina confessed that “it has happened”. That she could not deny that she has gotten to that age where she could not compete with younger women anymore and that she wasn’t going to the ‘stupid’ party (so much for the excitement) anymore. She was angry that it was a crime to age in the fashion business because she set the standards and that Christina could say it served her right. Rather, Christina told her that a lot of them were looking up to her and that she had paid her dues. But Wilhelmina's eyes were on Christina’s sandwich which she asked if she was still going to eat; Christina readily offered it to Wilhelmina who bit into it hungrily, having starved herself the whole day.

Daniel came into his office and met Betty standing by his desk displaying a boxer and two pairs of socks on his desk labeling them ‘treasures’ from her watch-hunt adventure. When Daniel asked if she had found his watch and when she handed over, he asked where she found and she asked “does it matter? And when he said no really, she replied “I don’t think so”.

He asked if the flowers had been sent, she told him Amanda had still hoping he’d remember. Betty couldn’t resist being sarcastic – she told him he was an adult and could do as he wished; moving from one person to the next leaving a string of broken hearts behind. She asked if there was anything more that he needed, he said “that’ll be all”. She turned to leave and he told her that he had a lot on his mind and that he had had a rough week. Her response was that she hoped he would deal more directly with what he had on his mind than he did with this (referring to setting her to do his dirty laundry), then, she left, leaving Daniel sitting dejectedly at his desk.
