    i love this episode sooo much. mostly cuz it includes one of my ultimate favourite scene from all tv shows. when daniel talks with sofias answering machine and they all realize how much they love each other. the words are perfection. and the music is even better. i love amanda and you can see she loves daniel and its so heartbreaking. and even tho she is a really B... i cant help but love her. i also love marcs and wilhemina, they are just perfect together. daniel and betty parts made me cry a usual, and i hate walter or whatever his name is (ugly loser guy). just AMAZING.moreless

    This episode is okay. It's Christmas time in New York, and Betty will leave Daniel's office and leave for a post in Sophia's office. She is questioning her feelings about Walter, aka she doesn't have any, and at the same time she is loving Henry. Amanda is desperate to move up from receptionist to Daniel's assistant, so she puts on a totally extravagant office prty for all the MODE staff. Meanwhile, Daniel is sure of his love for Sofia, and Hilda and her neighbour, Gina Gambarro try to out do each other in their Christms lights display, but it all turns out finemoreless
  • Touching and sweet but in a realistic way.

    It's very hard writing a some what kitschy show like "Ugly Betty" and still make it come out very sweet and touching without making it seem forced, And yet this show pulled it off. I must say this show is getting better and better as time goes by. hurrah to the writing staff!

    Great episode! Hoilday episodes are always the best! Betty is pretty. Some people think she is ugly but she is not! Just because she may be a little bigger than average doesn't mean she can't pretty. I think Amanda may like Daniel again because she kept watching him. When she got the ring stuck on her finger she could put under hot water and it would come off. Marc is so scared of his boss and thinks that she is going do to something really bad so he doesn't say anything about their sercret and unstead he finds out that she got him a hummer.moreless

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Daniel: I know it's real, Sofia. I love you.
      Sofia: Oh Daniel, what do you know from love? Your heart racing, palms sweating, can barely breathe when you see me?
      Daniel: Actually, yeah. All of that.
      Sofia: Well, that's not love. That is hormones, infatuation, good sex.

    • Henry: Just the girl I've been looking for!
      Betty: Oh, no. I'm sure there's other girls!
      Henry: It's about the party, I'm managing the budget.
      Betty: Oh.
      Henry: I guess that means I'll be on top of you for the next couple of days! ...party wise!

    • Christina: (drunkenly to Santa) A heart for Wilhelmina, courage for Marc, and a brain for Amanda!

    • Walter: How come your Christmas lights spell "Hilda sucks"?

    • Marc: Are you packing heat?
      Amanda: (being coy) Always!
      Marc: Amanda, I'm not flirting with you! Does anyone here have a gun?
      Amanda: Look around, we're a bunch of unstable, hungry backstabbing b*tches. Do you think anyone would really sell us guns? Relax! Have a drink.
      Marc: That's easy for you to say, your boss doesn't want you dead!

    • Hilda: Who moved all of our decorations?!
      Justin: And what's Santa doing to that elf?
      Hilda: This has the skank prints of Gina Gambarro all over it.
      Justin: Well you did run over her Christmas tree. And Christmas is a time of love and forgiveness.
      Hilda: Grow up Tiny Tim. This means War!

    • Amanda: What is the first thing I ever said to you?
      Betty: Are you the before?

      Wilhelmina: You're late.
      Marc: Love the crystal menorah next to the sterling silver Santa – so taboo!

  • ALLUSIONS (4)

    • The man Wilhelmina hires is named Pennette. This is probably after the show's script writer Marco Pennette.

      Tiny Tim is a fictional character in the classic story A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. He is the son of Bob Cratchit.

    • Episode Title: Fake Plastic Snow

      "Fake Plastic Snow" is a slight variation on "Fake Plastic Trees," a song from Radiohead's album The Bends.

    • Amanda: You know who would be perfect for that job?
      Marc: Anne Hathaway?

      Anne Hathaway starred in the movie The Devil Wears Prada, which some people compare to Ugly Betty, as a girl who works at a fashion magazine, but doesn't quite fit in.
