I loved the stuff about Wilhamina's wedding colors: "ebony and ivory".

"Integration now!"

I thought this was kind of a boring episode, but my eyes tend to glaze over whenever Broadway musicals come up.

Also, not enough of Marc's hot boyfriend.

I enjoyed the episode a lot, and have thought this has been a pretty enjoyable second season so far. I did have to wonder though, what happened from the last episode when Alexis remembered everything (and I presume her utter hatred for Bradford and disdain for Daniel) and this episode? She seemed to be just fine with Daddy again, following him around and still trying to be the Golden 'Boy'.

I think I liked this episode also because I've got tickets to see Wicked in NYC this Saturday night, and it was great to see scenes from it as I have not seen Wicked before.

I was puzzled about that, too...

Not a bad episode, though. I'm really enjoying this season.

I liked the episode but agree about the Broadway musicals. I've never cared for the shrill singing voices.

The comment about Headlights was so funny:
"It's like Hooters, but not as classy."

Why do all those Broadway songs always sound the same?

Ugh...I know what you mean. I got that stupid "popular" bit stuck in my head today. That annoying voice going over and over again....

like yeah ...

watched the actor in an episode of 'The Suite Life of Zack and Cody' yesterday.

the innuendo's are off the wall when Mark referred to Willamina: 'with a captial C'

it was too bad the script writers wouldn't add a line in regards to Marlo Thomas' guest spot as '... that girl'

damn the episode, now it'll make it harder to get tix to see 'Wicked' on Broadway...

I am starting to really hate the 'on again, off again' Betty and Henry relationship that has gone through the motions EVERY EPISODE... Also, the wicked stuff just dragged and makes me never want to see Wicked. (before this ep, I really wanted to ... not so much now). I thought the last few eps were decent but this one was really off-putting to me.

It was High Beams...

All that Wicked product placement was just odd. Seemed very forced, regardless of how well or not the song lyrics loosely connected to a plot point in the ep.

It had the feel of a big advertisement, and it really turned me off.

Thank GOD, I thought it was just me. Then again, I realize I might not fit the intended demographic for this show (female or gay), so they might not be catering to me. You're not female or gay [b]mdc3000, are you?

Though, I will thank them for Hilda's low-cut, form-fitting outfits, Gina & Salma and Rebecca hilariously grabbing her boobs in the hospital bed after the accident.
