What does "the whole picture" mean? Thanks.
A, an assistant of B, director in a publishing house.
A: You've got mail. I'm gonna go back to work now.
B: No, stay. This is going to be a real treat for you.
A: It's for me?
B: God, no, it's for me. But you get to be the first to see it. It's Judith Leiber, made to order. Just cobra and stingray with antiqued gold hardware. Hematite, Austrian crystal, and onyx stone inlay.
A: It's gorgeous.
B: I just wish men appreciated bags as much as women.
A: Men are visual. They respond to the whole picture, even if they don't know why. I'm telling you, men are gonna love that purse without even realizing they saw it.
