  • Sandwhich Boy haha

    Hmm Geo seems to be an interesting guy and it looks like he's really into Betty. I sensed trouble in love land. Haha I can't believe Daniel lied about his mobility issues. I thought it was cute how he was trying to teach Justin how to play basketball and then Justin had that sudden reaction when he got up to shoot the ball. Amanda was funny when she showed up nude with the dog at the black and white party but no one paid attention to her. I'm glad Betty and Hilda's dad is back it was so great to see them united.moreless
  • A new suitor for Betty!?

    Everybody and everything is trying to get back together at the Mode business. As Betty sees that Henry is trying to get her back in her life. While she is trying to move on. She gets interested in the new guy that makes sandwiches. His name is Giovanni. As the black and white ball is being prepared. Whilmeia will not take less in order for her wedding to be the best that she wants it to be. That is just her. As she cares about nobody except herself. As fugitive Clare Meade tries to spoil everybody's parade as she breaks into the black tie gala. Very funny show and shows that it is now back to where it belongs to be after a few episodes that seemed pretty depressed.moreless
  • It just keeps getting better and better!

    I loved this episode! Infact I love every episode. Theres not an episode that I havn't liked.

    I think its so funny how when they are at the red carpet Amanda got out the car and know one cared and they were like "Oh my god, Is that Zac Egron?!" I find that hilarious! Its also funny how Marc steps on Amanda's dress and she is naked and everyone loves her and takes pictures.

    Justin was GREAT in this episode. The storyline is so good with him. I think it is really sweet how he wants to learn basketball because of his father.

    Oooh, so Henry is back! But what is this with Geo? Does Betty like him? Whats going on between them? At first I didn't like him but sinse he was singing in the van I really like his and he is funny.

    It was a great ending aswell. Their dad is back (Ignasias or however you spell it lol =P) I think, when you hear a gun shot, that that man killed his father instead of Ignasias (sp?) Its a cute ending when they are all hugging at the end and I'm sure next week's episode will be just as good, if not better!moreless
  • Great episode once again.

    One good thing about this show is that it always remains watchable. It never has episodes that are annoyingly horrible. This episode wasn't really great, but it still had the Ugly Betty spice I look for.

    Ignacio faces problems in Mexico while Betty faces problems with the iBOT. Daniel ends up being a father figure to Justin when he decides to learn basketball. A secret about Daniel is revealed that angers Betty. Whilamina pulls out all the stops to make sure the wedding pulls through, while Claire does otherwise. And someone dies.

    Episode Quote: You'll make me flan, and maybe I'll spare your life.moreless
  • Mode or less.

    Not a dull moment for the magazine known as Mode. Welhelmina is trying to get her wedding back on track. she's trying.I heard news reports on entertainment shows that Victoria Backman will make an appearance on the show. I'm looking forward to that. Meanwhile claire Meades, is planning to crash at the wedding of the year. thyat's is according to wilhelmina. and Betty'sdad comes home. One actress, Backi Newton is coming into her own. She is becoming my favorite actress of the series, second behimd Ugly betty herself. I've been watching the show every Thursday and I don't miss "My Name is Earl" and "30 rock" that much.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • In this episode, we learn that Rosa's first husband Ramiro has a son named Hector by another woman, and was abusive towards him as well as Rosa. It is implied that Hector's mother was by Ramiro's first wife.

    • It's revealed that Betty is 23.

    • When Wilhelmina is showing Alexis the photo album of them labeled "Best Friends", there is a picture that Wilhelmina said was from them together during Fashion Week. That exact pose, including the clothes that they were wearing, actually appeared in "In or Out" when Alexis showed herself to Wilhelmina.

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Henry: (to Justin) You're drinking?!
      Hilary: It's just bee-er!
      Henry: Beer is a gateway drug.

    • Amanda: Daniel! No. I have unresolved issues with you, so just squeeze a boob 'cause I have to go.

    • Betty: I know you feel really bad about this whole Alexis thing, but do you think your pain could be more emotional than physical?
      Daniel: My leg isn't crying, Betty, it's hurting.

    • Marc: (to Amanda) Okay, can we forget about your father and focus on your mother and what being Fey Sommers' daughter will get us, and us I mean you, and by you I mean me.

    • Wilhelmina: (while Alexis is having her makeup done) Alright, alright girls, off. Off. She's a tranny, not a drag queen.

    • Marc: (to Wilhelmina) You'll still have the wedding in a few months. If Bradford thinks he loves you now, he'll think he loves you then.

    • (looking at the envelope containing the DNA test results)
      Daniel: Wow!
      Amanda: Yeah.
      Daniel: That's it.
      Amanda: Those are the DNA results.
      Daniel: So… Um, how many times you think we…
      Amanda: A lot… But just remember, if your dad's DNA does match mine, we're only half brother and sister, which means if we did it like twenty times, it was only wrong ten.
      Daniel: Okay, that actually made sense to me.

    • Marc: Oh, did I say something smart? I love it when I do that!

    • Gio: (to a Mode girl) Ok, "chicken and cheese special" on a baguette, no cheese, no chicken, no baguette (to Betty) I just sold her a plate of lettuce for 7 bucks!
      Betty: Yes, but that's for breakfast, lunch and dinner, so really it's a bargain!

    • Betty: So, you're new. What happened to Robert?
      Gio: I think he inherited money. Or got arrested. I don't know what happened. There was a lawyer and cash involved.
