Amanda: "I'm fired?" Nooooooo! Well, at least she'll always have that Einstein-of-sex thing to fall back on. After the commercials, Amanda is still in disbelief that she could be considered as expendable as all those interns and editors. Who will welcome people and tell them where to sign in? (a sign saying "Welcome to Mode. Please sign in." is placed on the desk behind her) But what about Amanda's pretty face? (a single flower is put next to the sign). Marc tries to comfort Amanda, but she is inconsolable.
Daniel's office. Betty is freaking out at Daniel. He assures her that her job is safe, because she's too valuable. But that doesn't calm her down. Marc tells her that he likes Amanda. Yeah, I remember the pilot episode too. Daniel tells Betty that five magazines were shut down today, which was hundreds of employees. She will have none of this! She's going to get Daniel that meeting with Cal, no matter what Matt says! And it has to be right now, because "he's leaving for a trans-Siberian motorcycle race right after the party!" Oh, that's not a good idea. I watched Ewan McGregor and Charley Boormann drag their motorcycles across Russia, and it didn't look like all that much fun. It turns out there aren't roads out there. But have fun on the race! Anyway, Betty just says she hopes Matt understands her going behind his back like this. She grabs her invitation from the egg and off they go!
The Natural History Museum is festooned with flowers and balloons and dinosaur skeletons. Children are looking for eggs. So is Hilda, who is still saying "faberj". Betty finds Matt, and as she's saying "Matt, I have something to tell you", he cuts her off and tells her she looks very pretty. Why does no one on this show ever listen to someone who has something important to tell them? Matt brings Betty and her family to meet his father, who tells everyone to call him Cal. He says that Matt's mother hated Betty, which means that Betty is okay in his book. And then he goes off to mingle with his other guests. He seemed nice enough... at first!
Betty gets a call and runs off to the backstage area, which is full of cookies and cupcakes. So that's what goes on behind the scenes at the Natural History Museum! Daniel is eating a cookie, which seems perfectly logical to me, but Betty is angry because he's supposed to be impersonating a waiter. Darn it, Daniel, get on board with the stupid plan. This is not cookie time! Betty brings Daniel into the party.
