  1. This episode is mostly about Betty’s father and how Betty and Hilda deal with him. We also have to deal with Conner/Wilhelmina, Daniel/Molly and mix in a little Claire Meade and we got ourselves a nice little party! Lets get started, shall we?

    We start out with Claire getting caught shoplifting and Betty going to help her out. Betty then talks to Daniel about finding out what is going on with Claire. He figures it is just her way of dealing with a birthday that is coming up. So Betty decides to do a tribute video for her birthday. While trying out the camera, she accidentally leaves it on and finds out that she recorded her father and Elena (the nurse) getting a bit frisky!

    Wilhelmina (with the help of Marc) tries to open her feeling up to Conner. She can’t do it alone ( she really is a piece of work, huh?) so Marc is telling her what to say (behind Conner’s back). Conner in turn then asks her if she would watch his pet bird.

    Betty and Claire talk about how Betty is worried about her father, so Claire volunteers to have a talk with Ignacio about the nurse.
    Betty in the meantime is talking to Claire’s friends to get some nice comments on film. But to Betty’s dismay, all they talk about is how much fun Claire is when she is drunk. Betty has no luck.

    While Willie and Marc are talking, she lets it slip that she loves Conner. The bird repeats her “I love you” and they look at each other like….”uh oh, now what”. So Willie says she want to kill the bird, and Marc says (best line of the night) …”but that’s bird-er” (get it …murder…birder) loved it!!

    Daniel spent most of the time trying to make his own memories with Molly and failing miserably. Because Conner had already been there and done that! He is neglecting his mother.

    Back home, Betty catches her father necking at the front door with Elena. Hilda and Betty are not happy with the idea of them seeing each other.
    Betty talks to Claire about Papi and Claire tells her it’s good he sees Elena. Betty doesn’t think he is ready(because of his heart). Claire asks “Is it he that is not ready…or you”?
    As Claire and Betty leave the store Claire shoplifts, again! This time Betty is caught holding the….THONG! lol Betty asks Claire why she is doing this. She says she feels invisible and alone. It is her birthday and she just wants time with Daniel, alone. She also tells Betty to do the same with her father. Daniel comes by to get his mom and apologizes for not being a good son. He takes her to “the party” which is really just a dinner for the two of them, alone, in his office. She loves it!

    Marc tells Willie to tell Conner how she feels and not be afraid. Boy, I am liking Marc’s softer side more and more. So when Conner comes back home she blurts out that she loves him and he kisses her.

    Betty sits with Elena and they talk. Elena tells her that she really likes Ignacio. They both head for the Suarez home and tells them that there are 5 for dinner. Hilda doesn’t look happy, but Ignacio is. They sit and enjoy dinner.

    I for one, am glad that Betty saw her father’s point of view. He should be happy, and be able to date. How about you?

    Circular hallway: Pink pigs and purses w/flowers. Hilarious

    Thanks for listening

  4. I gotta say, I liked this episode. It made me cry a little, cause I know if that was me, I'd probably act the same way the girls did about their father dating again,and not wanting some other woman taking their mother's place. I totally agree with you about Marc, that had to be the funniest line in the whole show. Upset that Amanda wasn't in it that much...guess it was her turn this week. lol!! Love the scenes with Betty and Claire, they get along so great!! By the way loved her pink hat and also her bag with look like her on it...very cute!! It seems this season she has been wearing alot of hats. Liked how Daniel surprised Claire with dinner and how it would be just the two of them...very sweet!!!
