  • A primetime soap with a truly contemporary take on “happily every after,” this hit series takes a darkly comedic look

    • (After dropping keys due to her severed fingers) Felicia: Sometimes, I'm just all thumbs.

    • Paul (Upon discovering Felicia's severed fingers in his car): She's good!

    • (Susan turns on the recorder under her shirt and knocks on Edie's door. Edie answers the door eating a bag of popcorn. She tries to slam the door. Susan holds the door) Susan: No, Edie, wait! Um, I don't want to fight. I know that we've had our differences, but you know we had a friendship going on there and I just think we owe it to ourselves to talk about what happened. Edie: What's there to talk about? It happened. (she chews the popcorn as she talks) I walked down to your house. I had this watering can. Susan: What? Edie (muffled): I filled it with gasoline and boom! Laughed my ass off. Susan: Okay, wait, could you just swallow? 'Cause I couldn't really hear what you were saying. Edie: Well, that was basically it. One of the best days of my life. Susan: Well, see you were chewing and so I didn't really hear what you said. Could you just say it again? Edie: I burnt you house down and it was great. What do you want? Susan: So, uh, you then admit burning down my house. On purpose.

    • (Susan moves closer to Edie. Edie looks at Susan suspiciously.) Edie: You're wearing a wire, aren't you? Susan: Huh? Edie: Open that blouse! Susan: What? No! Edie: Open that blouse! (Edie rips open Susan's blouse and sees the microphone. Susan runs.) Edie: Ahhhhh! You can't outrun me, Mayer. I'm in the best shape of my life! Susan: Oh good. Then you'll be prime meat picking when you go to jail! Edie: You bitch! Susan: Bite me!

    • Edie: What do you want? Susan: Uh, this is a little awkward and I apologize in advance for how this is gonna sound, but any chance, did you burn down my house? Edie: Yes. Susan: What? Edie: Yes, I burnt down your house, you sleazy little whore. Susan: Edie! Why would you do that? Edie: Can you blame me after sending me that acid letter? Susan: Letter? What letter? Edie: The one where you admitted to stabbing me in the back by sleeping with Karl. Susan: You weren't supposed to get that! I stole that back from the mailman. Edie: So, you were trying to hide the truth from me? Susan: This is not what we should focus on right now. The point is you maliciously set fire to my house! Edie: Look, I admit I might have overreacted a tad. Susan: A tad? Edie, I have no roof! You can't just go around burning down people's homes! Edie: Why not? You burnt down my home! You stole Mike from me! You slept with my fiance! That's the trifecta! You're lucky I didn't torch your car! Susan: That's it! I'm going to the police and I'm telling them what you did! Edie: Did what? I didn't do anything. Susan: Wha--? You just confessed! Edie: No, I didn't. Did anyone else hear me confess? Hello? Hello? No witnesses. No evidence. No confession. I guess we're done here. You can go home now. Oh wait, that's right, you don't have one.

    Notes (3)

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

    • Although they are credited, Richard Burgi (Karl Mayer), Shawn Pyfrom (Andrew Van De Kamp) and NaShawn Kearse (Caleb Applewhite) do not appear in this episode.

    • In one scene, Gabrielle is reading "Maxim" magazine, of which Eva Longoria was on the cover in January 2005.

    Trivia (4)

    • When Paul is arrested for Felicia's supposed murder, where is Zach? He is nowhere to be seen, yet he had to have been in the house when the police came.

    • Notice that when Lynette follows Tom to Nora's home in Atlantic City, the street lights are exactly the same as the street lights on Wisteria Lane.

    • When Susan asks Mike about the woman she saw him with in the movies, he says that it "was a one time thing", but in that episode, they are seen together in the movies for a second time, it's obvious from their different clothes. Clearly that scene was made to serve Mary Alice's line when she says "...some have let go of the right woman".

    • Error: When Susan is talking to Mike about him offering up his house to her and Julie, the bag Susan is holding alternates between scenes. Sometimes it's there, sometimes it's not.

    • Episode Title: The title "No One is Alone" is take from a song in the 1987 Stephen Sondheim musical "Into the Woods."
