Gretchen tells Andy that, though she likes his dress, it looks like a madam, a woman you "would pay high price to spank you." She interviews that his work is often just this side of slut and HE NAILED IT. That was awfully good. You know, Gretchen is a touch nut to crack. She's got the appearance of an angel, though I'm not sure she would ever expect you to think she is. That said, because of the contrast in her demeanor and her actual personality, there's something inauthentic-seeming about her. I'm not sure if that's fair, but I've certainly had a hard time liking her because of it. Andy jokes that he translated Central Park into a head waitress at a teahouse who gives happy endings. Well, that's awfully incorrect. He's worried about the dress. Gretchen tells him that she doesn't think he needs to start over. He interviews that, though he wasn't intending for that read of his design, he has to stick by it or it will be the end of him.
Back at the apartments, Gretchen feels like she did both a disservice and a service by telling him the madam stuff. At the boys', Andy says her words are all he can think about. Other Michael says that he wanted to wake Mondo up and asked everyone if he'd said anything. Mondo "jokes" that the others wanted him to sleep until 11.
The next day, Andy has decided to stick by his designs. Other Michael tells us that the bunched part of his fabric is supposed to represent the pedestal of the statue, which is kind of clever. Mondo says that Other Michael doesn't have a dress yet. Mondo tries to use some yellow sequins, but decides that, since he's never done it before, he can't work with sequins.
Here's Tim for consultations. He starts with Mondo, who explains his inspiration. It's a photo of the cars on the Brooklyn Bridge, including a shiny black car and a yellow cab. He says the yellow sequins were to be representative of the cab, but he feels like it's too much. Tim agrees. The rest of his design is representative of the bridge and it's architecture without being too literal. Tim seems to like it. Other Michael says that he'd expected Cloroxed denim and whips and chains on Mondo's design, but he'd misjudged him. He thinks he's the most creative person he's ever seen and surprisingly (I'm assuming he's surprised because of the confused way his face scrunches when he says it) classy.
