  • Posh cant obvisouly not act but she did make fun of her image and that was kind of funny but silly.

    Betty and Henry got serious .The weeding didnt go as planned, Bradford got an heart attack before they said I do. Betty got fired when Daniel realized she had betrayed him. Bradford didnt believe Daniel when he told his father about Whilemina and the bodyguard. Bradford neglecting Daniel and only cares about Alexis which makes Daniel upset since he knows that she tried to kill Bradford.

    Good episode. But the Betty/Henry storyline. Henry is such a boring character and their relationship storyline is not interesting at all. They are boring together. I dont like him.

    Gio and Betty would a more funnier couple. More drama.moreless
  • One of the most fabulous,amazing and emotional episodes of Ugly Betty so far.

    The episode shows the event of the year-the Bradford and Wilhelmina's wedding.

    Betty and Ignacio fight is amazingly written as Betty goes to live with Henry.Their fight is very dramatic and the face of Ignacio when Betty goes to that thing is gorgeous.

    Wilhelmina's maid of honor is Victoria Beckham and she tries to to do her best to steal the spotlight from the bride.She makes a fun of herself and makes a pretty delightful guest starring as well as Vera Wang.

    Marc's problems with his new boyfriend are escalating as he tries to hide him from the fashion world because of his plain appearance but he has a big surprise for Marc showing at the wedding at a particularly new way of looking.

    Amanda tries to make herself popular as Fey Sommers's daughter but falls to catch the eyes of the audience.Her performing of 'Milkshake'in the church is exciting and sooo funny.

    Daniel tries to stop the wedding as he learns about Wilhelmina's cheating on his father Bradford.

    Betty also tries to stop the wedding.

    The final scene with Bradford's heart attack is the best one in the episode and the saddest in the whole series and the song 'Hallelujah' makes the things even sadder.moreless
  • The wedding goes out with a bang.

    So many great things happen in this episode that it is really funny. Daniel finds out that Betty has known about Wilhemina's affair the whole time and he feels betrayed, but he doesn't know the whole story and considering everything that Betty has done for him I really don't understand why he is that mad. The parts with Victoria Beckham are really hilarious and Justin's constant watching of the entertainment news is so hilarious and realistic. My two favorite parts of this episode are Amanda breaking out in song during the wedding which is so funny and ridiculous and Marc getting jealous over Cliff at the wedding because their relationship is very cute and they are great together.

    Then at the end when Brad Meade has a heart attack at the end it so dramatic and the perfect way to end the episode.moreless
  • Nice they but weird voice:)

    Wooww. Another exciting and funny episode of Ugly Betty. This season I think it goes mch better. They are doing great job. With the team, with the guests. I think having Victoria Beckham as a special guest a really clever idea for both of them. But there is something that makes me curious: Is that voice really Posh's? If it is Victoria need to think about an actress career. Besides of that, the episode was amazing. Betty, Justin, Ignasio, Hilda... But I think the star of this episode was Amanda and Marc. The truth of the matter for me I think they are really good.moreless
  • Wilhelmina can think again about hearing I Do

    Wilhelmina can think again if she thinks that she'd have a happy ending with Bradford. Although it is disappointing he fell into cardiac arrest it had to happen to save Mode of course. Daniel went out of line just because Betty didn't tell him sooner about Wilhelmina's affair. For one thing it's one thing that was expected of Wilhelmina to do so it's not as if it wasn't a dead giveaway. Of course despite the drama there were indeed some funny scenes especially with Marc and Amanda. Those two never cease to keep me entertained. I also thought the Henry and Betty scenes were cute as per usual. :)moreless

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Ignacio: (to Justin who's watching TV) Hey! Shouldn't you be getting ready for school?
      Justin: It's the countdown to the Bradwilhelmina wedding, it's a national holiday!

    • Justin: (watching the wedding on his cellphone during his grandfather's American Citizenship ceremony) Wilhelmina's wearing white? That is such a bitch slap.
      (Hilda closes the phone on Justin and he gives her a weird look)

    • Marc: Have you seen Cliff yet?
      Amanda: Don't worry, your wide load lover will be here any minute.
      Marc: Amanda, don't joke. I'm freaking out! I am debuting him today as my boyfriend and I have no idea what's gonna walk through that door.
      Amanda: Sweetie, relax, he can't fit through those doors.

    • (Daniel has found out Betty knew about Wilhelmina and Dwayne's relationship and didn't tell him)
      Daniel: I don't want to hear your excuses. Betty, you're the one person I counted on always being on my side and you betrayed me...for Wilhelmina. How could I ever trust you again?
      Betty: Daniel, please...
      Daniel: Stop, I can't even look at you. (walks away, then turns around) You're fired.

    • Wilhelmina: I can't start my own magazine until we bring down Mode. Apparently the dynamic duo, Danny and the Tranny, have gone and found some advertisers to save this rag.

    • Marc: Beauty is pain, Cliff, and you are hurting me bad.

    • Christina: I'm sorry I ran out on you. I guess it was just easier to secretly put money away for 2 years, hide in a neighbor's barn and then wait at the airport for 4 days for a standby ticket to New York than it was to talk to my husband.
      Stuart: I hear that.

    • Marc: Oh my God it's Perfect Spice.

    • Hilda: Why is everyone in this family so freaking dramatic?

    • Marc: (To Amanda) Your 15 minutes are almost up, Quincy Jones is on the 4th row, now sing bitch!

    • Amanda: Oh my God, it's happened, you're looking past the outside and seeings what's on the inside. You're falling for him. You are falling for the average man.
      Marc: Oh God, I am. I'm an average man lover. *gasp* What do I do?
      Amanda: You accept it, you are deeper than you think. It's OK, we all have flaws.
      Marc: But I broke up with him.
      Amanda: Then you get out there, and you do something dramatic to show that fatty how much you care. Like you run through the airport, and you bust through security and just as the doors of the plane are closing you scream at the top of your lungs "CLIFFFFFF!"
      (Cliff Turns around)
      Cliff: You calling me?
      Amanda: Or you just go over there and talk to him.
      (Marc walks over to Cliff and hugs him)

    • Marc: This wedding is so fancy, Armani is wearing Prada!

    • Marc: Wilhelmina said if there's baby's breath in any of the floral arrangements, she's gonna sand off my nipples!
