Before he leaves, Tim tells everyone that he has never been more excited about what the designers are producing than this season. Well, that's just a damn lie. I don't even think that the designers believe him.
Everybody gets back to work. Buffi experiences a rare headache when she's at the sewing machine. But, she lives. Christopher tries to get Buffi to try on the jacket he's making, but she's not having it. The models come in for a fitting and Fabio's dress is very, very short. Christopher says that he can see her "fish whistle" but I've grown cold to him. Normally, I'd really laugh at that. Melissa has a lot of stuff to finish. Buffi's look is a mess. Christopher asks her if it's resort wear because, yeah, it looks like that. The cheapest, least joyful resort in the world.
The finish and the next morning, Buffi and Melissa are talking about finishing their work. Buffi seems pretty anxious right now. In the boys' apartment, Raul says that he doesn't think that he's the one who should have gone home. Christopher, who seriously just does not know how to leave well enough alone, says that Andrea, instead of "fleeing" in the night, should have said onstage that she didn't want to stay, in order to save Raul the stress of having to be eliminated. I'm not really sure that's how that would have worked, but OK. Seriously though, he should just stop talking about her. He was horrible to her and there's really no taking away from that. Remember how he was trashing her and she finally brought up the stuff that he fucked up and he was all like, "I'm not even going there"? That just really pissed me off. The lack of awareness is just gross.
At Parsons, everyone gets to work. Melissa stays calm while still needing to finish a lot of stuff. Christopher, out of the kindness of his heart, suggests to Buffi that her look is shit and maybe she would want to use some of his leftover fabric. Hey, he's just offering because he's a friend. She kind of freaks out about it in the sewing room and he overhears it and she's like, "No that's great, what you did. Having to defend myself like that is awesome." Wow. That's pretty cool. He interviews that he's not sure if she's lying but he would want the same constructive criticism that he gave her. There's also that whole time and place and appropriateness thing.
