Liz is first to enter Tim's Four Seasons boutique. Boy, does she need a makeover. The hair! Tim asks what the message of her speech is going to be, and Liz says that she wants to tell every wife, mother, and grandmother that they deserve a bit of time every day for themselves. Liz wants to look fabulous. Tim approves. Rudy goes to the boutique, and groans at the rack of button down shirts. He says he's a jeans and t-shirt kind of guy, and instantly rejects the idea of a suit. Tim tells him that a blazer is the best way to dress up jeans and a t-shirt. Rudy is still skeptical, and asks where he would wear it. Tim's like, "Take your wife to a restaurant once in a while, fool. And Applebee's doesn't count." Rudy explains to us that a flannel shirt is formal wear for him. We'll see what happens.
Rebecca is next to enter the boutique, and starts crying about the difficulty of shopping for a fat girl. She loves fashion, and is thrilled that she can now actually shop without being traumatized. Rebecca is saying goodbye to the girl that she used to be, and becoming the woman that she is. If that makes sense. Rebecca tells Tim not to cover her up. He replies that he's as proud of her as she is, and plans to show her off. Rebecca then heads off to the Warren Tricomi Salon, where Tabatha asks how short she can go. Rebecca is scared of short hair, and says it's because she has a round face. Not anymore! Tabatha says there's no reason to hide a pretty face behind long hair. She knows that the makeover can be emotional for a lot of the contestants, because they're letting go of the old person they were. The round-faced person. And embracing the new person. Who can wear short hair!
There is lots of highlighting going on at the salon, and the boys don't know what to do as they wait. So finally, they start talking about the speeches. Allen wants to talk about struggles, and what's achievable. Danny wants to talk about the underlying reason why they got so big, and so does Rudy. And speaking of Rudy, he jokingly tells Tabatha that his beard has to stay, because it matches his face. He actually is afraid to shave it off, because he thinks he'll look heavy without it. And, I mean, technically he's still kind of fat. Less fat, but what I'm saying is that the beard isn't fooling anybody, unless maybe he grows it long enough to cover his stomach. He tells Tabatha that Abraham Lincoln had a beard. She tells him that the beard's going. He should be lucky that he still has a job, whatever that job is, after tangling with Tabatha.
