  • Amazing.

    When Justin and his classmates visit Mode, Betty is bothered by the message the magazine is sending across to the kids and encourages Daniel to use ordinary women as models during fashion week. Meanwhile, Amanda visits a psychic for news about her biological father and Wilhelmina gets an unprecedented turnout in her latest plan for absolute power. Yay it is finally back. I have been waiting for a year or something like waiting for this show. I loved this episode. Great storyline. I loved the way Bow and Omarion was in it. Amazing episode can't wait until next weeks episode. Not long now.moreless
  • Trying to help kids! That's Betty's tone!

    Betty is trying to help Justin and his classmates in seeing the publishing world. But they are getting the wrong idea. As they see models and people that are skinny. As Betty thinks that it is sending the wrong message to them. As she tells boss Daniel to use ordinary models. Meanwhile, Amanda goes and visits a shrink about her biological father. And Whilimenia as I tend to agree with one person here, role is getting smaller. Though she is the person you love to hate, every show needs a person that you love to hate. Hopefully her role will get back into becoming bigger in her quest for power.moreless
  • One BIG mistake

    Bow Wow in Ugly Betty? Great idea but the fashion show? Since when fat people are healthy? Someone should think this through doing that episode. Healthy people are the ones who don't eat at mcdonalds only and those women obviously do (at least some of them). I didn't like that episode, it was so not like 'ugly betty'. She is becoming more and more confident so probably they will make her the head of the company soon, why not. Wilhelmina's role is getting smaller and smaller and she was the one with the best quotes. Sadly The show is going down.moreless

  • Betty on the runway & Gene Simmons is Amanda's Baby daddy!!!

    Willie is "Harmotional"

    The mean girls form Justin's school arrive at Mode!

    Willie needs a surrogate, as she has a "hostile womb" and dumps her first choice (her pedicurist) as she was once a dominatrix.

    Betty wants to save the world from skinny models due to childhood "pool party trauma".

    Daniel has no power as Alexis runs the show.

    Christian cant use her insurance for Stewart's procedure thus becoming desperate.

    Willie might try to use Christina's desperation as a bargaining key for carrying her evil spawn.

    Amanda sees a "Madame Zora" type to get info on her dad who turns out to be Gene Simmons!!!

    Betty struts her stuff on the runway!!!

    And Big girls are Beautiful!!!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • The editors of Cucina and Player magazines that are at the editors meeting are the same ones that appeared in the episode 'Grin and Bear It'.

    • Notice how the picture in the elevator is representative of the episode's theme. For instance, the picture in this episode appears when Betty meets Bow Wow. It shows a model pinching the "fat" on her stomach. This episode is about weight and body image.

    • In this episode, Betty tells Amanda her mother died 6 years earlier. But in Season 3's first episode, there is a screenshot of Betty's mother's gravestone that reveals she died in 2004 which would have only been 4 years earlier.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Betty: So, did she go for it?
      Daniel: Not at first. I totally stared her down, though, told her I wasn't going anywhere. I don't mean to brag, but it did get into a little bit of a pissing contest, and I think we both know who has better aim these days... (off Betty's puzzled look) Me, Betty, I have the penis.
      Betty: (looks away) Oh. I'm uncomfortable now...

    • Betty: Hilda. The garbage man yelling "nice rack" is not a modeling offer.

    • Amanda: You matter to me, Betty Gonzalez.

    • Amanda: So, a psychic told me that a 'B' would lead me to a kiss that would lead me to my father. I think that you are my 'B'.
      Betty: So, what are you.. gonna kiss me?
      Amanda: Like you've never thought about it.

    • Marc: Ok... I never thought I'd say this to a woman before but... Turn around and bend over!

    • Betty: I have to go give Justin's class a tour of the magazine.
      Daniel: Right now?
      Betty: Remember? I'm showing them how the publishing world works. Molding young minds, I told you about this.
      Daniel: Did I look like I was listening when you were telling me?
      Betty: Yeah. You did.
      Daniel: Wow. I'm getting pretty good at that.

    • Amanda: Hey Lady!
      Marc: Hey Tramp!

    • Christina: Henry, it's Fashion Week. Unless you have to be hemmed, stitched, or draped, I've no time for you.

    • Christina: (about the skinny models) Of course, everyone is on that new cheesecake and heroin diet!
      Betty: I could totally stay on half that diet!
