  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (19)

    • Susan: I've never stopped caring about you. Mike: Then why did you jump in bed with Karl? Susan: I would have never even gone there if I thought there was a chance with us. You just closed the door so completely, I- Can we just not talk about him? Have some more pie. (She feeds him) I know you like pie. I know you like me.

    • (At Mike's place after Oliver has played the tape of Karl and Susan talking) Susan: Okay, ahm, first of all it was not the best sex I ever had. I just said that to make him feel better. Obviously, you are the best sex I ever had. Oliver: That explains the punch in the face. Mike: I'm gonna hit you again if you don't shut up. Susan: I know that this looks bad- Mike: You were actually fooling around with Karl behind Edie's back. Susan: No, no, no. No, Karl lied to me. He told me that he and Edie had split up before- Mike: You know what? I don't even care.

    • Mary Alice: (After Mike punches Olivr for insulting Susan) Yes, Oliver Weston had become a cynic, which is why he couldn't recognize a man who was still in love.

    • Mary Alice: (narrating) When the truth is ugly, people try to keep it hidden, because they know if revealed the damage it will do, so they conceal it within sturdy walls, or they place it behind closed doors, or they obscure it with clever disguises, the truth no matter how ugly always emerges, and someone we care about always ends up getting hurt, and someone else will revel in their pain, and that's the ugliest truth of all.

    • Andrew: You're going to leave me here, out in the middle of nowhere? Bree: I saw a bus stop about a mile back. You can go anywhere you want. Andrew: Momma... Mom, please don't do this. Bree: I have to. I can't be around you anymore, I'm just not strong enough. Andrew: You know what the good news is? I win. (he starts to cry) I remember the look in your eyes when I told you I was gay, I knew that one day you would stop loving me. So. Here we are. I was right. I win. Bree: Well, good for you.

    Notes (2)

    • Although they are credited Mark Moses (Paul Young), Cody Kasch (Zach Young), Brent Kinsman (Porter Scavo), Shane Kinsman (Preston Scavo) and Zane Huett (Parker Scavo) do not appear in this episode.

    • Due to time constraints, the opening credits were cut for time.

    Trivia (6)

    • During the scene at the rockwater lake, Caleb is eating Black's Frozen Yogurt. This is the advertising client on whose account Lynette was working (with Tom's help) in season 2 episode 13, "There's Something About a War."

    • If the mailman is coming from the left side of the street as we see when Susan is seeing him from the window, shouldn't he have already given the letter to Edie? Edie's house is clearly in the cul-de-sac on the left and he was coming from there.

    • Error: When the P.I. is in Mike's bushes, he takes a drink out of a cup and rests it in the bush. In the next shot, the cup is gone.

    • Why would Gabrielle and Carlos go to Homeland Security for an immigration issue? Isn't it INS that handles non-Americans' immigration issues? Homeland Security deals with terrorists and crimes against the United States.

    • This time it's Edie who burns the house of Susan's. In the season 1, Susan did the same but accidentally...
