  • After having to endure Tess lying to George to win him over and her constant demands for their upcoming wedding, Jane finally snaps after Tess has the audacity to cut up their deceased mother’s wedding dress (that Jane had been planning on wearing when she eventually got married) to make it more “modern”. After delivering a small "The Reason You Suck" Speech, Jane gives Tess an ultimatum: tell George the truth about her or lose Jane as a sister.
    Jane: God, you don’t care! You don’t care about anyone but yourself, do you? I have made excuses for you because Mom died when you were little, but enough is enough!
    Tess: I have no idea what you’re talking about.
    Jane: I can’t undo what you’ve just done, but I won’t let you hurt George. He thinks he knows the truth about you, but all he knows are the lies you’ve told him! You even had Pedro keep a secret from George! You tell him the truth right now! He is not one of your Euro-trash boyfriends, Tess, he is a good person. And you cannot start a relationship based on lies!
    Tess: Oh really, Jane? And you know this because of all your successful relationships?
    Jane: ...You tell him the truth, or I will.
    Tess: No, you won't. You wouldn't hurt a fly and you definitely wouldn't hurt me, I'm your sister.
    Jane: That was yesterday. Today you're just some bitch who broke my heart and cut up my mother's wedding dress.
