Did You Know?

The Betty-ish woman in Dr. Farkas' dental office was played by Angélica Vale, star of "La Fea más Bella," a Mexican remake of the same telenovela that inspired "Ugly Betty."See more »
Angélica:Okay, I just checked her file, she had her cleaning two months ago. Her insurance will not cover this every six months.
Diane:Rinse and spit, Angélica, just put it through. Where's your sense of romance? She's doing this for the man she loves.
[to Betty]
Diane:Ooh, we should give you pink rubber bands.
Betty Suarez:Ooh, yeah, that would be really fun!
Angélica:Dentistry is not about fun.
[to Diane]
Angélica:You always think that you can bend all the rules because you're pretty... and blonde.
Betty Suarez:Is she okay?

Best episode of the season, 23 May 2007
Author: dramatic_toast from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I have loved this show since it's inception, but this episode had me bawling like a child at the end. Brilliant writing in my opinion. I can't wait till the fall. And the little girl singing "Somewhere" at the end while the story unfolded fit so perfectly it just gave me chills! Wow! Thank you ABC and the writers for bringing back quality television. The cast in this show is perfection. From Betty right on down to Justin I couldn't even imagine better people for the show. It's obvious that Mark Indelicato could have a career in theater or music so I was really glad they highlighted him in this episode. Ana Ortiz did a stellar job during he emotional breakdown at the end. I have watched the season finale of nearly every show on ABC this season and this one was by far my favorite. I don't think I've seen more plots twist & turn on a last episode of the season in my life and if I have they weren't as memorable as these. Fantastic!
