GG points out, pointlessly, the "rules for a model the day of a photo shoot," noting how similar they are to "those of a patient, pre-surgery." She then tries to make this analogy work, and fails miserably. "No food or drink twelve hours prior, wear comfortable clothing, and make sure your affairs are in order -- you never know what could go wrong in a flash." S leaves an excited voicemail on sleeping B's phone, and later B wakes up and runs downstairs, terrified she's overslept or something. Eleanor's like, "No, but we're going a different way." B's face is already about to fall, but she's still hopeful: "With the theme?" No, honey. With the model. Eleanor starts trying to explain and apologize, and B immediately shuts down completely with that scary smile that says somebody's getting the horns: "I'm glad I don't have to go. I hate shoots. They're so boring. You should have Alessandra Ambrosio, not an amateur." Aww. Eleanor promises a lovely dinner afterwards, which I assume B would not be allowed to eat anyway, and takes off. B calls Serena with the bad -- for her -- news, and offers to meet up at the shoot anyway just to make fun of "the skinny bitch" that replaced her. Which is I think another script v. director issue that should have been changed, because while B the character creation is concerned with her weight, on paper, neither of the actual live girls on this show are all that horribly skinny, compared to lots of girls on TV, and lines like this -- where B is calling S a skinny bitch without knowing it -- are jarring, because you're like, "But Serena's a hoss, though." Which she isn't really, but that's where you go with it.
