Along the way, they parlay a crashed late-night dinner with top fashion designer John Varvatos into a brainstorming meeting that may, or may not, hold the key to their entrepreneurial success.

Ben finally receives the prototype of his jeans design, but feels a failure because it looks slightly sissy.

Darren handles more souvenirs of Ben at Rachel's well, while her boss scolds her insensitivity.
