Horrible prints! Flapping around like the ghosts of samples past! Sewing machine, fast little hobbit fingers! "Spotted at Mood: Jenny Humphrey buying sixteen yards of tulle. But since when does Eleanor Waldorf pay for her purchases with a penny jar? They say a stitch in time saves nine... Will it save Little J?" Agnes is flouncing around with barely controlled excitement, screaming incoherently about how great it's going to be when they do whatever they've planned, and Jenny laughs, because meanwhile she's down to the wire. "At least your brother and the lodger went to go see a movie," Agnes says, because nothing clutters up the ad hoc atelier like Humphreys and their hangers-on, just ask Eleanor, but Jenny sees this as more an opportunity for Nate to continue avoiding her, post-mack session.
"He's still acting like he didn't stick his tongue down your throat?" Jenny admits that yes, although hello to the imagery, and Agnes says that usually, amnesia (or possibly/hopefully "manmnesia," I can't tell) doesn't come until after the sex, so who knows what the problem is. Jenny names all the alternatives besides the obvious: "I don't know, he used to date Vanessa? I'm Dan's little sister? Too young? I wouldn't know. We don't talk." Agnes says after tonight she'll be so famous she'll have ten Nate Archibalds on a string, and Jenny says she just wants the homeless one that lives on the futon, and Agnes tells her to go for it, then finally notices they're running late. "You need to sew way faster, because we are so screwed. Because ready or not, we're putting on a fashion show!" Jenny keeps working, totally focused, because she's still young enough to think that this literally is her last chance in life.
Dan and Nate, on a sweet little date. Dan's worried about Agnes and Jenny's secret stuff, and Nate nervously says he doesn't know anything about it, certainly not about how Jenny quit Eleanor's or how she's planning her big debut, and Dan's like, "How much privacy does she really need to watch Project Runway and eat pizza?" Then he gets a text from that toothy TA at Yale, Jordan "Yes, That Is My Real Name" Steele, whom Nate doesn't remember even though they totally had a threesome with her, and Dan laughs about how stupid Nate is in such a condescending way that Nate actually notices, and then reads him the text, which is that she gave his stupid stories to three different professors, and they need to talk. Nate tries to put a nice shine on it, but Dan knows that she means she's run out of professors to give him a recommendation, and needs to tell him so. Nate stubbornly tries to believe in magic, and Dan calls him retarded for the third time in this conversation, then abruptly ditches their date and runs off to quote "go home and stare at my phone." And since he was payrolling the date, that means Nate in his adorable cardigan will no longer be seeing a movie. Dan suggests that he corner Jenny about what she's up to, and Nate's like, "Um, right."
