Summary:
Teddy saves negative reviews of her work by fashion columnist Diana Gottfried and holds a press conference in retaliation. Later, Teddy confronts Diana at a restaurant. When Diana is rude to her, Teddy hits her in the face with a pie. Teddy feels victorious, until Diana sues her for battery and $3,000. While backing out of the driveway in her new car, Georgie runs over and kills a neighbor’s dog, Speedy. She wraps up the dead dog and places him in a designer store shopping bag to be disposed of at the pet shelter. When Alex goes to the cash machine to withdraw money, it accidentally gives her an additional $2,000, which the bank refuses to take back. She decides to spend the money on a $1,600 cocktail jacket she saw in a store window earlier that day. Alex goes to Georgie’s house, ready to shop. But Georgie is too upset about the dog and goes upstairs to rest. Meanwhile, Alex picks up the shopping bag containing Speedy, thinking it is a purse her sister wants to return to the store. Alex and the salesgirl are shocked by what they find inside.
