  • "you're about to hear a cough. that's me saying hello." "you're about to hear a sneeze. that's me saying hello." "you're about to hear a gag. that's me... gagging."

    i love love loved this episode =) it had me on the edge of my seat the whole time (as this show always tends to do). i love how betty has to walk amanda's dog in her bathing suit for an entire month, lmfao. anyway. i just knew betty would say she was going out with gio, i actually think when henry goes away they might develop something... but maybe that's just me. anyway I'm kind of getting sick of the whole henry-betty relationship. i LOVE them being together and I think it's adorable and everything but they keep going through the same problems and it's not fairrr =( betry ftw :)! haha. oh and i'm glad justin is back to his old fabulous self, i almost died laughing seeing him make out with the one girl. anyway, the preview for the next episode looks amazing... i can't wait !!moreless
  • I absolutely love Gio! I like Henry, but he will be leaving! Betty should be with Gio :)

    I absolutely love Gio! I like Henry, but he will be leaving! Betty should be with Gio :) I think this episode is sort of insinuating that Gio has a thing for Betty, and he purposely took the ticket in hopes of seeing Betty there. But I was proud of Betty for taking Hilda's advice at the end, it was a truly romantic ending scene which makes us all love Henry and Betty a little more. Not only that, but I think it makes us all want to see Wicked a little more too! So hopefully Henry doesn't end up leaving, but if he does, then I am rooting for Betty and Gio!moreless
  • Awww how cute

    Since I love Betty and Henry together I definitely loved this episode. It was so cute how they were trying to hide their relationship from everyone. I thought it was also cute the way Daniel was trying to look out for Betty by not approving of her being with Henry. Haha the sandwich dude's thing for Betty was also hilarious the way he was pretending to be her boyfriend as a front to hide the truth from Daniel. Nasty how Daniel was going to actually sleep with that woman just to get her to help him out with the magazine. Overall another great episode.moreless
  • best episode in the series so far

    i think this episode has easily been the best in season 2 so far, everything was perfectly. timed. and it makes me think even more that betty and henry are meant to be. Altohugh i thin they-we are togther, we are not together wen ton for to long.This is an episode which reall shows daniels development, has we really looks out for betty,juts has she has done so many times.Alos not sleeping with that women, hshows he has really grown up. Marc and Amanda were funny as usual and both have inpeciable comic them best part about the show. Alos the incororation of the extremly popular wicked was very fitting.moreless
  • Not good but not bad. Just average!

    Really not my favorite type of episode but it was not bad at all. As Betty's "date" of Gio or whatever the person's name is was really annoying as well as just kept bothering her so much. I wanted to tell Gio where to go at times. But that wouldn't had been nice. Henry I thought, was doing all he can to really "kiss & make-up" to Betty. Though he did hurt her a whole lot. Meanwhile, Daniel I thought was the only saving grace in the show. He came off rather really nice. Show he maybe jerky and macho at times. But on the flip side, he is nice and tries the best to live up to his demanding dad's expectations of the magazine running business. Makes you feel for him.moreless

    • Wilhelmina: (about her dress size) I have to gain six pounds by Saturday to fill it out. (sees Betty eating a danish) Look at her. She makes it seem so easy.

    • Betty: Daniel, I am not dating Henry.
      Daniel: Because if you were I'd have to seriously think about getting rid of him.
      Betty: (looks at him worried) Murder?
      Daniel: What? No, god, I hate that it's so easy to go there with my family, but no I mean fire him.

    • Hilda: I'm romantic, not crazy!

    • Daniel: The one thing I always thought you had was good judgment. I can't understand why you're being so stupid.
