Episode Summary

Are We Not Friends?
Gwen is depressed: she's been invited by the Mayor to present the Humanitarian of the Year Award, but she's mortified by the prospect of seeing her old acquaintances again and having to explain her poverty and unemployment. Ashley is upset too, worried that his dress won't be ready for the "tri-state 'Hello Dolly' competition." Gwen realizes for the first time that Ashley is Guy's son. Terry encourages Gwen to go to the gala anyway and reluctantly agrees to make a new dress for her. Gwen unsuccessfully tries to recruit Danny as her date for the evening, but has to settle for Guy. When Guy arrives to pick her up, Gwen promptly rips her gown in the loft's heavy door. The resourceful Guy helps do a quick remodeling job on another dress--Ashley's--and Gwen is able to arrive at the gala looking good. At the gala, Gwen's pretentious friends ask about her dress and her date. Gwen says she's wearing a Terry Reynolds original and that Guy is a Spanish count. Guy surprises her by speaking fluent Spanish. Meanwhile Ashley is apoplectic when he finds that Gwen has his dress and threatens to storm the gala and get it back. Terry goes instead to retrieve the dress. While there, Terry is recognized by one of Gwen's former friends, who realizes rumors about Gwen working and living with her former assistant must be true. Terry manages to blackmail her into silence. When Gwen makes her speech, she admits she lost her job, but owes a tremendous debt of gratitiude to Terry, her "dress designer." Later Terry wonders why she didn't refer to her as "friend." Gwen promises that she will be a better friend in the future.moreless
