Anyway, Jeffrey's all, "Yeah you fucking did and that's your problem." And, he walks away. Laura has sort of an "oh well" look on her face and she walks the other way. She looks a little more bothered by Jeffrey's feelings than I think she wants to admit. And frankly, I don't get it. I am a total coward when it comes to most conflicts, but this situation seems fairly cut and dried to me. So, you didn't cheat, Jeffrey? Well, then, you should be fine. As far as the integrity whining, I'd just say that I was just doing it for the cameras -- which would serve the dual purpose of allowing me to question Jeffrey's process, but look like I was just serving the drama of the production. And my little coward cloak would remain un-linty.
Later, Jeffrey gets a call from Tim. Jeffrey is missing some receipts from Park Pleating, the company that he outsourced to for... pleating. Jeffrey needs to have the company fax the missing receipts to Tim & Co. Jeffrey says that Park Pleating is like Sanford and Son, which means it has a really great theme song. Damn lucky pleaters. Tim says he doesn't know what will happen if Jeffrey can't get the receipts. I imagine he'll have The Big One. Jeffrey calls the company and asks for the receipt. Then he interviews that if they can't produce it, he won't be showing at Bryant Park. I'm finding this all very fishy. More than anything, you're going to want to have receipts for services. The receipt is the only really evidence that the service even took place. Unless, of course, you don't want anyone to know how much you paid for the service. And you want everyone to think that you were the person who constructed the clothing.
The next morning, they go the workroom. There's a lot of tension in the air. Jeffrey blows up Tim Gunn's cell and is all, "I'd really like to talk to you!" He interviews that he's dying to know the outcome of the audit. He says it would be "utterly tragic" if he didn't get to show at Fashion Week. Mmm hmm. Or funny -- I don't know. And I say that knowing that Jeffrey is incredibly talented. But it would be kind of funny if he didn't get to show. Funny in a horrible way, but still funny. To me.
