That blonde guy isn't that hot! He was ugly! Just because he was blonde? He was nice and all but I wouldn't go out with him. OMG! Betty almost got ran over! That was so funny and when Amanda and Marc call who they think is a lesbien! I wonder if she will find out who it was because that part was the best of the whole show!moreless

    This episode, Four Thanksgivings and a Funeral was great episode. The episode is very true to its name, because there is actually four thanksgivings, which are - Whilemina cooks a big feast for herself and Nico, and after a few mishaps she manages to bond with Nico. Amanda and Marc sneak into Whilemina's office to watch the parade and have some fun of their own, but unfortuntely find out more than they wanted to, after a secret phone call. Daniel has to attend his familys thanksgiving at their Country Club. The fourth thanksgiving is at Betty's house, with Betty, Ignacio, Justin, Hilda, Santos, Christina and Ignacio's new lawyer.moreless

    This has better one of the better episodes of the series so far.

    It was nice to see Christina have Thanksgiving with the Suarez family and Santos spend some time with Justin. Claire was still in the process of drying out and Bradford is being tormented by a Fey lookalike.

    Enjoyed Marc and Amanda's dress up play time together and their snooping through Wilhemina's office. Even Wilhemina's motherly attempts for Thanksgiving were better than what I considered to be the weakest part of this episode which is the Daniel/Sofia arc which I really don't care for at all.

    Actually I'm a little tired of his constant neediness all the time.moreless

  • Loved it! What a way to begin the holidays

    This episode was so enjoyable, every part of it was amazing and absolutely hilarious. The 'mystery' of the season had a really interesting twist, I'm defenitly interested to see what Fey is up to. I was really sad to see taht Lea was a liar and a con artist, but I hope things will work out for the Suarez family. My favourite part of the episode was with Marc and Amanda. It was so, so funny. I'm beginning to like Amanda alot, especially when she's with Marc. Um... what else. Well, that's about it. I would highly reccomend this episode to anyone. I'm marathoning the whole season, so I'll keep reviewing the epsides.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • On the tomb of Fey, there is an epitaph saying "La mode ne meurt jamais". This is a french sentence which means that fashion never dies.

    • When the Suarez family is sitting at the table waiting for Leah, Ignacio says the clock is nearly 7 pm, but only seconds later we see the clock - it shows 6:20 pm.

    • After the patient in the hospital calls Wilhelmina's office Marc and Amanda freak out and start running away. When Amanda leaves she knocks over the phone and then picks it back up. The phone continues to ring though even though it was knocked off the hook.

    • Goof: After Wilhelmina sits down to eat Thanksgiving dinner with Nico, in between shots some hairs move out of place in her side parting, then back into place, seemingly without her touching them, as she hasn't moved.

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Ignacio: (about Santos) He actually showed! How about that?
      Hilda: Don't!
      Ignacio: I guess if we want him to leave we just tell him you're pregnant and watch him run. He's good at that.
      Hilda: Ancient history papi, okay?

    • Amanda: (to Betty) I'm sorry, you were looking at me and saying things. I wasn't really listening.

    • Betty: Hey, what are you still doing here?
      Christina: (sighing) The high priestess needs her outfit altered for some dinner she is going to tomorrow. Oh, what time do I need to be at your place?
      Betty: Around three.
      Christina: Now is that the time we're actually eating or is that the time that that delightful little nephew of yours is putting on his production of Thanksgiving the musical?
      Betty: We're eating at six.
      Christina: I'll see you at six then.

    • Marc: (to Amanda) I think Wilhelmina is a lesbian!
      Amanda: What?!
      Marc: A BIG one!

    • Justin: How does she do that?
      Santos: She is a bit of a witch.
      Betty: Give or take a letter.

    • Wilhelmina: Stop looking at me like the ghost of Thanksgiving yet to come. Good night.
      Christina: I see an old woman, all alone at a Thanksgiving table set for one.

    • Justin: Hey Mom? Is it okay if I sit between Dad and Christina? I really want to talk to her about Stella McCartney's spring line.
      Hilda: Great! I'm sure your father would be very proud.

    • Betty: Daniel are you okay?
      Daniel: No I'm not ok! I spent the day waiting by the phone checking my email every two minutes. It's like I'm this close to splitting a Cobb Salad with Sarah Jessica Parker talking about shoes!
      Betty: I really miss that show.

    • (About Daniel)
      Amanda: I just fell in love with him.
      Marc: Me too.

    • (To Christina)
      Wilhelmina: You wanna live my life, pay my bills.

    • Martha Stewart: Maybe I should run a fashion magazine. It will be like Freaky Friday.
      Wilhelmina: Actually I was doing fine until I noticed he still had his luggage.
      (looking into the turkey)
      Wilhelmina: You want me to put my hand where?
