Back at WGE, we walk in on the middle of the official press conference for Dress2K. This is a big moment on Titans, because we're about to find out (I hope) what the bloody site actually does. On a side note, I think they've set themselves up for failure with the name. Think of what's going to happen in another thousand years or so. The name's going to be irrelevant. Their funeral. Anyway, the conference is similar to the one that the Beatles had for their first tour of America. People asking questions like which one's the smart one, which is the prettiest? Some hard-hitting journalist for the Encino Shoppers' Advertiser asks whether Heather is really qualified. She thinks she is. Another reporter says that the word on the street is that Heather has a sixth sense on how to dress the American female. Well, just looking at the way that Heather dresses should quickly squash that rumor. Her strategy will all be about women dressing for men. Great, another one of these women-empowerment chicks. The new Mrs. Williams vows that not only will she kick some ass, she'll show a little. I think she's talking about those yellow cheekless pantsuits that Prince used to wear. Richard assures the rapt reporters that as far as financial advice goes, he and Peter will always be there to advise her.
After the conference, Heather and Peter engage in their usual back-and-forth snarky banter. I think they like each other. Remember in public school when you threw rocks at the girls you liked (I unfortunately continued that habit well into college, when a restraining order finally put an end to it)? This is just like that. Peter predicts failure. Ah, but the investors believe in her. Why else would their stock be valued at $200 per share, fifty points up from the time she was announced as CEO? Why? One good reason might be that the writers are not knowledgeable about the stock market and too lazy to take a look at the L.A. Times Business section and find out that Heather's boast is total bullshit. Yahoo!, which is already considered over-valued and which actually does something, is only worth about $60, while Microsoft hovers at $65. Regardless, Peter believes her, and he's duly chastised.
