As Whitney recasts the ensemble, Jay calls to tell her he's found an apartment. The cameras try to make it look like Olivia's eavesdropping, but I'm pretty sure she's just standing there being useless. What else would she do? Whitney ends the call and updates Olivia, lamenting that she can't see the apartment because she has to work. Olivia decides that this simple exchange of information is an invitation for her to commandeer Whitney's house hunt. Whitney decides to swing by the place after the photo shoot. As luck would have it, Alixe leaves early, so Whitney makes a break for it at Olivia's urging. Man, I wouldn't trust that girl as far as I could throw her. She's willowy, for sure, but I have absolutely no upper body strength, so she probably wouldn't make it past the tips of my shoes. That's how little would trust Olivia "I Want To Be a Brand" Palermo.
Whitney meets Jay at a building that's about 100 stories high. Of course the apartment has a massive living room with wraparound windows and a balcony. It's not quite as ridiculous as the apartment in Big, but it's still an apartment I would have to split with six of my friends to afford. The realtor goes into her song and dance about the tight market and the high interest, then gives them mere minutes to decide. Whitney walks out on the balcony to take in the view and says this kind of sky-high pad isn't what she envisioned for herself. Jay puts on the pressure, emphasizing that this is their first chance for "alone time." She's still not sure but lets his insistence make her decision for her... like the strong-minded, independent girl she is.
Later, Whitney and Olivia reconvene at DVF MePa to fake work. By which I mean talk about Whitney. Throw some garment racks into the picture and we're back at Teen Vogue. Olivia asks about Whitney's apartment search, all, "Pick me! Pick me!" Whitney tells her she got an apartment and starts listing its astounding features. Whitney says the apartment is on the 30th floor, making a makes a not-so-subtle shout-out to her craptastic theme song by saying it's like she's "on top of the world." She announces she's moving in over the weekend and will thankfully have Jay's help. Olivia makes a comment him using his "muscles," and even Whitney can't stifle her laughter at that thought because he is the lead singer of a hipster surf band. By definition, they do not come with muscles.
