First Aired: February 10, 2010

Style expert Robert Verdi juggles his professional life and private desires: "I'm always looking to expand the Robert Verdi brand," he says modestly. In the opener, he says that he wants to become an internationally beloved children's cartoon character before heading off to a toy store with his "focus group": his four nieces. Verdi also consults cartoonist-author Marisa Acocella Marchetto about his character. Meanwhile, his assistant oversees a baby shower for Ana Ortiz.
