The scene fades to an older woman in a grand pink dress, looking out from a balcony. It's Aunt Alicia. Gigi rushes to the door in quite a kerfuffle.
Waiting at the door, Gigi uses spit to pat her hair into place.
Gigi greets Charles, the butler, and asks what they're having for lunch. Ortolan, he says, taking her coat and hat as she runs into the parlor.
Aunt Alicia and Gigi enter the dining room in order to practice the correct way to eat ortolan, "the exquisite little birds."
Gigi does her best to eat the bird, bones and all. She complains that her grandmother never lets her do anything with anyone, and Aunt Alicia supports her sister's decision: better to wait for something special, she says.
It's becoming clear that Gigi sure isn't being taught to be a wife.
Gigi finishes lunch, miserably chomping on those little bones. Ack.
