  • Quotes

    • Renee: Tom told me about your little, uh, suggestion that I needed to move off the lane. And I want you to know that ain't gonna happen.
      Susan: You know, if you're really Lynette's friend, you would know that you cannot live two doors down from her husband, a man you still love.
      Renee: That is none of your damn business!
      Susan: Really? 'Cause I am Lynette's friend and I'm not gonna stand by and watch you screw up her marriage!

    • Lynette: This is all on you, I hope you know that!
      Paul: Me? Those are your friends out there, Lynette! The solid citizens of Fairview! Tell me again why you think they're better than a bunch of ex-cons.

    • Andrew: For the third time, no. I'm not gonna sell my house to Paul Young.
      Lynette: I'm sorry. I just had to make sure. The vote is today.
      Andrew: Do you really think that I would let dangerous ex-cons move in next to my own mother?
      Lynette: I don't know. As a teenager, you were pretty nasty. (he doesn't appreciate the comment) But you're all grown up now and so very nice. Thank you for your support.

    • Beth: (to the mayor) I've never met a celebrity before.
      Mayor Franklin: Well, now you have.

    • (the neighborhood is preparing for the protest by making posters)
      Parker: (to his mother) So, if this protest works, and the place doesn't open, what happens to all those ex-cons?
      Lynette: What happens to them?
      Parker: I mean, if they don't get to stay here, where will they go?
      Lynette: They'll just go back to where they came from, or some house in another neighborhood.
      Parker: But what if that neighborhood doesn't want them either?
      Lynette: Well...
      Parker: (interrupting) I mean, if they've done their time and they need a second chance, wouldn't it be better for them to be in a nice neighborhood?
      Lynette: In theory, yes, but that's not the way the world works, we have to think about our neighborhood, our children.
      Parker: Ourselves?
      Lynette: Don't be cute. Some of these men may have good intentions, but some of them could still be really bad guys.
      Parker: But, if we don't even try to help them, are we so sure we're the good guys?

    • Renee: What is happening to this neighborhood? Some van just pulled up and these creepy characters are coming out.
      Tom: That is a school bus, Renee. Those are children.
      Renee: Well, I don't like the way they're looking at me.
