She comes in with about sixteen shiny bags from various stores and launches into a wildly entertaining recounting of her last several hours: "You will not believe how much money I saved today! Huge sale. I had to get up crazy early to beat the crowds... That's a lie, I was actually out clubbing and I figured, what the hell? I'll just stay up all night. It was totally worth it!" Betty tries to explain that buying things on sale is still not saving money, and Amanda goes, "Isn't it?" kind of breezily, and Betty underlines that it is not, and then Amanda makes that sexy-sneaky eyebrow face and goes, "Isn't it?" Which is a thing that she does in every scene of this entire episode, and while I hate shtick I have to say that my Amanda shtick threshold is way higher than most other shtick thresholds, especially since it's a different thing every week.
Betty asks how she paid for all the crap, and Amanda totally explains that living with/off Betty has saved her such money that she's paid off a credit card, which she celebrated by running that mother right up again. Hilda whispers, "Where's the rent, bitch?" with a little shoulder gesture, but I'm so sure Betty would ever formulate the ability to say anything like that. You know the thing where you scrunch the paper off the straw and then drop water on it? That's what would happen to Betty if she ever said that. It would be like Jennifer Carpenter in The Exorcism Of Emily Rose. So Betty just stares passive-aggressively at Amanda, willing her to get something she's obviously not going to get, and finally Amanda's like, "Betty, do not worry." Betty relaxes just in time for the kicker: "I'm gonna catch up on my sleep at work, per yoozh." She takes off, and only Hilda looking at her with total douche chill disgust causes her to do anything but whine softly to herself while watching the pigeons through her window like Keir Dullea in David & Lisa, so she goes running after Amanda in her madwoman's reeds, tearing down the street like she's looking for the Omegahedron.
Amanda swears she'd like to give the crazy space witch some rent money, but turns out she's a bit short. Betty suggests returning the clothes and shit she just bought, and Amanda explains how you can't return sale items to any of the million stores she shopped at this morning. "You know I'm good for it!" she says, and Betty points out that no, she isn't, and we do know that. Betty whines about the creepy gross landlord who is "weird" and "leers," and points out that if (meaning when) she pays off their rent she'll be skint. "If you want to keep living with me, then you're gonna have to chip something in." Amanda totally gets it, and then totally asks Betty for subway money.
