She sits with him at the party and listens to hum the melody. He explains she’d take the second part. She says she would love to be considered. He says “enough about work” and asks her how she’s holding up. She says she’s going to sleep for a week once they get a vacation. He says he has some time off in a few weeks. They could get together. She says they may be able to hang out.

Dinah Jane puts on the mini-skirt. She was uncertain about how it would look on her. However, as she turns in the mirror, she grins. The shorter length made her feel as though she could was on stage, receiving an Oscar. The stylist says she’s pleased with her choice. Dinah says she may have to keep them.
