The girls abuse their wine tasting lesson, and there are serious repercussions.
Although Amanda has already been expelled, leaving eleven contestants to fight out the competition, the girls still aren't near the top of their game. They grumpily wake up to Ms. Shrager's shrill whistle, with no intentions of obeying her orders to get out of bed. Lillian is practically dragged out of her bed my Ms. Shrager, and is consequently late for the girls meeting downstairs with Headmistress Harbord.
Headmistress Harbord informs the girls that this week they will be leaning basic etiquette, manners, and most importantly, self respect. She announces that they will be hosting a lunch for the financial backers of the school, and it is the girls' responsibility to make the lunch a total success.
The girls are immediately sent off to their lessons, the first being walking and posture instruction. Each girl takes turns walking around the room with a book on her head, but most of them take the lesson as a pointless joke.
The girls' next lesson is in art, where they are all shocked to see they'll be sketching a nude male model. Some of the girls are distracted by the nudity, while others force themselves to focus.
During the drawing lesson, the girls realize that Lillian is still missing. Ms. Shrager finds her locked in a bathroom, and brings Headmistress Harbord to Lillian for disciplinary backup. When Lillian refuses to apologize for her actions that morning, the instructors ask her to leave Hedsor Hall for good.
Lillian hands back her pearls without regret, says she didn't learn a single lesson while at Hedsor Hall, and hops in a cab back to the airport, and back to her old, screwed-up life.
Meanwhile, the remaining ten girls head to their next lesson: flower arrangement. Before giving the lesson, Headmistress Harbord announces that Lillian was expelled, which makes every girl put her guard up; who knew it was so easy to get $100,000 taken away from you?
The girls' next class is in conversation skills. They are taught how to talk to boys appropriately, but some of the girls just don't understand subtle, polite conversation. Brianna has the most difficult struggle, not knowing how to discuss anything but her promiscuous lifestyle.
For the last lesson of the day, the girls are introduced to fine wine tasting. Most of the girls are disappointed when they learn they can't swallow the wine, they have to spit it out! After the girls have sampled several glasses of white and red wine, the wine tasting expert decides to leave the girls to finish their glasses. But of course, the girls go overboard. They finish off entire bottles of wine, then head behind the bar for more booze. Soon, most of the girls are completely drunk.
In the midst of all the drinking, Maddy announces that she wants to go home at the next elimination. Later that night, Sam proves she can't handle her alcohol when she throws up all over her bedroom floor.
The next morning, the girls prepare for their lunch with the Hedsor Hall donors. The girls are shown the proper way to hold their silverware, cut their food, and even how to sit. But some of the girls, like Brianna, forget their previous lessons, and embarrass the instructors with their actions. Others, like Margie, put their best foot forward and impress everyone.
Later at elimination, Samantha, Brianna, and Maddy are called forward for discussion. When Brianna points out that she thinks Margie should be in her place, Margie stands up and accuses Brianna of saying rude things about the instructors, and also having drugs in the house.
Luckily, the drug rumor is quickly cleared up when Jen reveals that she has a Xanax prescription. Unfortunately, the girls still have a lot to defend themselves on. Samantha apologizes for abusing the wine tasting and getting sick, but is still reprimanded for smirking while the Headmistress is talking. Finally, Maddy admits that Hedsor Hall is not for her, and she wants to be back with her family.
After a discussion, the instructors agree to send Maddy home. But they don't let her go easily; they tell her she has disrespected everyone, and is a waste of time at Hedsor Hall. Maddy listens to their criticism, then heads upstairs to pack her bags, vowing to change her ways when she returns home.
