Betty reminds her that most of her friends are actually middle-class, but Veronica replies that "to me, anybody who isn't rich is poor." But when Betty informs her that the "unrich" wouldn't do things like use a twenty dollar bill as a bookmark, Veronica asks for advice on how to be truly "unrich."
