I believe her exact words are that she’s “shutting down this power plant.” Instead of finding Charles the perfect gift — or, rather, having Liza find him the perfect gift — she decides he’s “getting a goddamn cupcake like everyone else.” I’m sure that Diana thinks getting a cupcake is a travesty beyond repair, but cupcakes are delicious and Charles isn’t a birthday guy anyway, so he probably won’t even notice.
And no, it’s not because Diana realizes that her feelings for Richard might be much stronger than she let on, and she’s tired of primping and preening for Charles’s approval.
She once got so hungry that she tried eating lipstick.
Scratch that, there is NO way Charles feels one way or another about a cupcake because his entire life has blown up in his face thanks to Liza and Kelsey. — THERE IS SO MUCH TO GET INTO — let it be noted that while all the drama goes down, Maggie is over in Brooklyn in a hilarious story line about dating a gallery owner who is rocking a mustache. Across the bridge in Manhattan, Liza is having dinner with Caitlin.
It ends with the two ladies in a bathtub and Maggie mistaking Donna’s offer to let Maggie shave her as the opportunity to get rid of the ’stache. It’s all cool and fun until who should walk down the street but … You know, the guy who wanted to poach Liza from Empirical during the Bonfire retreat.
And when her mother kicked her out for eating, Kristina found her way to an orphanage, where she lived until she was 12, when she was adopted and left behind everyone she loved to come to the U. Translation: Kristina’s kind of amazing and quite possibly too good for Nick.
After hearing her story, Nick gives Kristina the rose, and the two of them finish the night with a dance.
