'Ugly Betty' Bites: 15 fiery quips from last night's episode, 'Smokin' Hot'!
Last night’s Ugly Betty had it all: A fire at the Queens home of the Suarez clan, Fashion Week, yet another guest spot from the always hilarious Kristen Johnston, male models, the reappearance of Suzuki St. Pierre, and one beautiful chandelier! (I don’t care if you don’t agree with me on that last one—Ignacio, in that instance, had good taste!) Without a doubt, some of the series’ best episodes have been the Fashion Week-themed hours. Sad that this is almost assuredly the last time we’ll see the Mode clan at Fashion Week. But, at least they head out of the fashion fest with quite the fiery bang!
As usual, I rounded up my favorite one-liners from the episode. Enjoy:
“Why are you being so weird? Oh, it’s fashion week. It makes you all anxious. Like a lesbian at a makeup counter.” —Amanda, to Betty
“Chocolate Éclair, how’s it hangin’?” —Amanda, greeting Claire upon her arrival at the Mode offices
“I don’t know how you can stand to live with Marc. Sometimes I just want to wrap my arms and legs around him like an octopus and squeeze him until he loves me back.” —Helen, professing her love for the very gay Marc
“With your crazy sewing skills and my crazy fashion sense—and a fist full of mood stabilizers—we could be a real design team.” —Amanda, to Helen, about becoming a design duo
“Are you happy? Now we’ve got Betty judging a fashion show! …This is about taste! Betty never met a paisley or plaid or awful butterfly belt she didn’t love!” —Wilhelmina, railing on about Betty’s questionable taste in fashion
“Is that a dimple? I could totally set up a tent in that dimple!” —Amanda, to Claire Meade’s rugged, cute, and long-lost son Tyler
“The key to sounding like you have good taste is hating everything. Just call it garish or ghoulish.” —Justin, trying to school Betty on what good taste is
“If you must look at her, please direct your gaze to her shins or her toes.” —Marc, telling Betty how to deal with Wilhelmina when presenting fashion to her
“Hey Magic Marker! Chipotle.” —Amanda, hilariously Marc and Betty
“Ladies and Germs, it’s Fashion Week. And you know what that means—I’m drunk! Kidding. Mostly.” —Suzuki St. Pierre, opening a piece about Fashion Week in the Mode offices
“What is this Zoolander? Walk like a man!” —Wilhelmina, critiquing Daniel on his runway walk
“So they said ‘No.’ Do I give up every time someone tells me ‘No’? ‘No, Helen, don’t do that.’ ‘No, Helen, don’t sleep there.’ ‘No, Helen, that’s not food!’ We’ll just show at Fashion Week next week. And until then, we’ll all live together like one giant, sexy family.” —Helen, after not getting the chance to show the line she and Amanda created at Fashion Week this year
“Aunt Betty, the fire is out and there is nothing left to see here, and if you don’t go to the Mode show, that’ll be two tragedies today!” —Justin, telling Betty that she has to go to the Mode fashion show
“I am a stylist. Rachel Zoe can suck it! There’s a new skinny bitch in town! What?!” —Amanda, after realizing that styling is her calling
“Betty, I will deny this if anyone ever asks, but you don’t always get it wrong. You shoes, for example—I don’t hate them. But next time, don’t pair them with that cheap hooker bag.” —Wilhelmina, finally giving Betty a compliment on her fashion
So, which j’adorable quip did I miss? Which is your fave? Did you love this episode?
