The camera zooms in through the Mode offices to find Betty all but chained to her computer by whatever demanding task Daniel has her occupied with today. And it's...solitaire. She really is behind the times; the current thing to do during office downtime is surf the net, right? Not that you or I would know anything about that. Ahem. Her phone rings, and it's Hilda, stressing at her to get home. Betty says that Daniel's still at the office "doing paperwork," although the three-way splitscreen shows Daniel doing a whole lot of sitting on his ass. Hilda wants Betty home to go over the paperwork for Ignacio's immigration case with Leah the Lawyer, and also to do the grocery shopping. Betty tells her not to sweat it, and hangs up. To Amanda -- who at that moment just happens to be slinking past Betty's desk to peek in at Daniel -- Betty vents that Hilda thinks she's blowing off the family for her job. She insists that she always does the Thanksgiving grocery shopping and cooks the meal with her dad, ever since her mom died. Amanda responds to Betty's concerns with customary sensitivity: "I'm sorry, you were looking at me and saying things. I wasn't really listening." Betty shakes it off, satisfied that her expository work is done, and asks about "this new guy [Amanda's] been seeing," who apparently Amanda hasn't been able to stop talking about loudly, outside Daniel's door, all day. Amanda says, more quietly, that the guy's spending Thanksgiving with his wife and kids: "I'm like, 'grow a pair.'" Heh. She says that all men suck, and then flounces off in search of Marc.
On her way out, Amanda passes Christina, who's entering with a bagged dress and her sewing kit, because Wil's going to some big dinner tomorrow and needs alterations made. I'm glad that the only alterations I'll ever need made to my Thanksgiving clothes will be the insertion of elastic panels. We learn that Betty has been kind enough to invite Christina to the Suarezes' Thanksgiving dinner at 3:00 tomorrow, and Christina shows her gratitude with this little speech: "Now, is that the time we're actually eating, or is that the time that delightful little nephew of yours is putting on his production of Thanksgiving: The Musical?" All class, that Christina. Betty says that they're eating at 6, and as Christina flits off to her appointment with Wil, she says that she'll be at Betty's at 6. Betty should tell her to bring a sack lunch, a picnic blanket, and a warm coat if she's going to be such an asshole about it.
