Episode 49 - Ugly Betty Vs The Stylist

He told her that she had always wanted more responsibility and that she could take care of things.

Betty hanged the phone, arms akimbo and proclaimed to herself and Christina, “I am the man”.

Wilhelmina and Marc got into a taxi. Wilhelmina, still in a bad mood told the taxi driver that she needed to get to JFK fast. And, when the driver didn’t start the Cab she yelled, let’s go! Marc explained he opted to spend thanksgiving at the office because his mum was trying to hook him up with a girl who plays organ at her church; that was why he came to the office to watch the parade from a safe place. (oops)
Wilhelmina didn’t reply a word as she stirred on with an angry look on her face. Marc pleaded, please say something. She said “You know the name of the hospital, you know the frequency of my calls”; you’ve stepped way over the line this time, Marc”, I don’t think I can protect you any more”. Marc, was frozen with fear as he asked, “protect me from who?”. “The person you were trying to call is not abused”.

Betty went to the stylist with confidence this time around and he told her he just received a photo of the baby and it was ugly (this guy is mean). He actually said it was hideous! That got to Betty and she lashed out at him. She told that he had a problem if he not could see any thing adorable and beautiful in baby than drowning them, then maybe he was not the right person for the job.
He retaliated by telling her that he’s been working with mode ever before she wore her first pumps and asked if she was firing him. She said if he couldn’t change his stand then there was nothing she could do. The ego-deflated stylist angrily took his stuff and left, not without telling her that she should look for something else who do designs for zoo to do the job.
As he was going out, he met Sofia (who had been watching the exchange and admiring the way Betty handled the stylist) by the door and asked her “Who is that woman?”. Sofia replied, “For today, she is the boss”.

Episode 48 - Daniel, Tree-Decorating!

At Mode, Betty tried to get Daniel (who was holding a pack of ice to his throbbing head) to come down to the office while Sofia used every kind of trick to get information about Daniel from Betty to no avail.

While Bruno was show casing different types of baby outfits to choose from, Betty looked at the designs and disagreed with it. Bruno was simply livid. The arrogant stylist could handle an ugly girl questioning his taste.

At the Suarez home, Daniel was having the time of his life as he (looking better now) watched the family rummage through a treasure box and choose ornaments to decorate the Christmas tree. Mr. Suarez took a reindeer, which he told Daniel was made for him by his late wife. The next was a miniature size baby in a cot which Hilda told Daniel that she made when she was pregnant with Justin. Justin warned everyone with “Here come tears”. They joked and had fun while Justin handed the ‘baby in cot’ to Daniel, to so the hanging. He stood up but felt awkward and got emotional, he had never decorated a Christmas tree as a child.

At the Wardrope, Christina was going through costumes to pick for the baby photo shoot and Betty was her mannequin. She complained about Christina’s choice and called Daniel to see if she could get him down to the office. She asked if he was feeling better and he answered, “a little”, while stringing beads for decorating the tree and watching the family flocking around the tree. He enjoyed the whole tree-decorating and confessed to Betty that it was a new experience for him. The Christmas tree in his home always got done by professionals! (Can you beat that?)
Christina was still a mass of confusion while this conversation was going on.

Betty wanted his opinion on the photo-shoot but he seems to care more about the tree-decorating.
