The next morning at Mode, Daniel and Amanda were walking towards the elevator together (they obviously spent the night together), when he spotted a beautiful lady walking by. She looked straight at him, smiled and got on one of the elevators. Daniel cleverly told Amanda that they should take separate elevators so that Mode staff does not begin to get ideas into their heads. So, he got on the same elevator with the lady.
Wilhelmina in meeting with staff about the up-coming year, when her daughter called with a request which she turned down.
With so much high hopes for the coming year, she said Mode will not tolerate late-comers and that they must each solve their unanswered questions and unresolved issues in their lives and move on to the next phase.
Amanda and Daniel sat beside each other and she teased him with her leg under the table, Daniel was not game and he moved his legs away from her reach.
She also said there are fashion must-haves for 2007 that it will not include poka-dots while looking straight at Ugly Betty and then at a female staff that self-consciously looked down because she was wearing a black dress with white and red poka-dots. The meeting ended with that.
As Daniel and Betty walked to their offices, he told her about the “smoking hot” girl on the elevator, describing her and instructed Betty to get him details about her. Betty, wondering what he was up to again said “Must hunt down Daniel’s babe”.
Bradford was watching Fey on TV interview saying: “Whatever Bradford does, he can’t get rid of me”. His secretary (I presume) came in asked wondered out loud that he was still there.
Wilhelmina got home and met her daughter having cereal for diner. She had got something better for her and served her. They argued about the boarding school Wilhelmina intended sending her to (the same school she attended) which she stated had far better education, people and food than what she was eating. Her daughter went against everything her mother said. These two are simply Pararell lines or rather, like contestants, they both were not willing to give in to each other.
Betty, Hilda and Ignacio were gathering documents that would be required for their father to seek Amnesty. He apologized for all that he was making them go through. Hilda and Betty argued again about Mode job. Hilda’s point was that Betty’s job was taking too much of her time and if she agreed to sell Herbalux she could patronize the model there and get quick money. Their father said it was a bad idea, supporting Betty as usual. Betty found a photograph of their late mum which had the other part torn away. She asked her father and he said the torn part was of their mum’s old boyfriend. Betty was puzzled and told her father that she thought they were each other’s first love. Ignacio got upset and said she should stop the ‘damn’ questions! He removed the apron on him, said, “Its okay, Betty” and went out. He was really upset it showed.
