  • This is a great episode because it changes your veiws on people. With Daniel, you see a more softer side of him. With Betty, you see a more independant side of her. With Marc, you see... I don't know Marc and Willamin really don't change at all.moreless

    This is one of my favorite episodes out of the first season. Why? Because it changes your veiws on people. With Daniel, you see a more softer side of him as he decorates Betty's Christmas tree. With Betty, you see a more independant side of her when she fires the big shot photographer. With Marc, you see... I don't know Marc and Willamin really don't change at all when they get lost in Queens and steal from a church. The point is if you think about it Christmas spirt can really bring out the best in all of us or most of us and show sides that some people would never imagaine seeing on you.moreless

    I just love Betty but I knew it was a lie when she said she slept in Daniel's arms. She is such a good boss and knows how to control people and not let them walk all over here like because she isn't as skinny as them. I am so confused if I like Daniel better with Sophia or Amanda because of next episode when Amanda is looking in. I just loved the part when Bruno got fired and he said to Sophia, "Who is this woman?" And Sophia said, "For now she is the boss." That really made him mad!moreless

    i dont really like the betty and bruno part, they are entrataining but nothing great. i loove marc and whilhemina (spelling?) they are so hilarious! ahaah i laugh just thinking about it. i also love sofia and daniel. even tho i know that shes a B... and that in a few episodes she reveals it was all a lie, the moment in the end when they talk made me cry (and the music was SOOO moving), also the moment with betty and daniel! that made me cry lots. and its always fun to put a little Gina Gambarro in there. lol. just great.moreless

    This episode of Ugly Betty, Lose the Boss was okay. In it, Daniel is busy with Sophia and so leaves Betty by herself, when a famous photographer called Bruno has some rather insane ideas for a photoshoot with babies, like chain mail. Meanwhile, Daniel is desperately tring to prove to people, especially Sophia that he is a family man. Also, Ignacio gets in trouble with immigrations, as it is revealed that he is living in America illegally. My favourite lines were - Marc: I can't wait to see baby Chutney. I hope she spits up on something so I can sell it on the internet. Wilhelmina: (about Bruno Jacobs) He styled Madonna while she was giving birth. Made her belly sweat look like diamonds.

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Betty: Well have you told him? Does he know how you feel?
      Sofia: Daniel? Daniel so many women, so little time Meade? I don't think it would matter. Do you?

    • Christina: (holding chain mail to Betty's neck) How does this feel?
      Betty: Ow! Like my brace slipped. I can't believe any mother would let her baby wear something like that.
      Christina: (sighing exasperatedly) Oh, we're going to have to find something safer for a baby, like maybe a plastic bag!

    • Wilhelmina: (about Bruno Jacobs) He styled Madonna while she was giving birth. Made her belly sweat look like diamonds.

    • (Daniel has just woken up in Betty's bed)
      Daniel: And you slept where?
      Betty: In your arms.
      (Daniel stares at her)
      Betty: I'm kidding. On the living room couch downstairs!

    • Betty: How do you feel?
      Daniel: Like my tongue is wearing a sweater.

    • (To Whilhelmina)
      Marc: Come on Willy. We don't have any secrets. We are in this together.

    • (Talking to Santos who has Hilda's robe on)
      Ignacio: I kinda miss the good old days when you snuck out.
      Betty: Then we would miss all this.

    • Betty: I don't want to have to tell Daniel that you might be coming back on Monday morning as someone else's wife. You need to tell him that yourself.
      (Sofia just looks at her, then reaches into her bag, pulls out an atomizer and squirts it into her mouth)
      Betty: (over Sofia's coughing) What's the matter?
      Sofia: That was perfume...

    • Betty: Well, isn't there anything in here that could work for a six month old?
      Christina: Nope, nothing... Yes, there is! Kate Moss's spandex dress!
      Betty: Oh!
      Christina: No, no, no, cause I'm going to have to take it out a bit.

    • (holding out a cashew)
      Wilhelmina: Who, on this staff, would willingly eat something that is 15 grams of fat per serving?!

    • Wilhelmina: What about Amanda? Where did she spend her holiday?
      Marc: (wheezing) Um..Um..I think she went to Vermont.
      Wilhelmina: How could Amanda get back from Vermont so fast? Doesn't make sense.
      (Marc's phone goes off)
      Marc: Oh, it's Amanda. (answers phone) Hello? (looks at phone screen) Oh it's just a text message.
      (Wilhelmina takes phone and reads message)
      Wilheminia: Forget the cashews. You're the one who had to be Nancy Drew.

    • Marc: I can't wait to see baby Chutney. I hope she spits up on something so I can sell it on the internet.

    • Betty: Why did you get us a tree?
      Daniel: I threw up in four rooms of your house, it's the least I can do, huh?

  • ALLUSIONS (4)

    • Bruno: This child fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.

      In the 1998 movie Saving Private Ryan, Matt Damon tells a story about his brother and a girl named Alice Jardine. To describe her, he says, "Picture a girl who just took a nosedive out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down."

    • Santos: (to Daniel) You dated Angelina when she was between boyfriends, right?

      This is probably a quick reference to actress Angelina Jolie, the star of such movies as Mr. and Mrs. Smith and The Good Shepherd.

    • The show made fun of Baby Suri and the competion of the first photo of Baby Suri, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' baby.

    • The episode title Lose the Boss? is a pun on the title of the former ABC comedy series Who's the Boss?.
