When Carlos's drinking gets in the way of his ability to work, his wife goes to the office in an effort to save his business from losing a multi-million dollar account.

    Not the best albeit not the worst episode of the show. Kinda like Susan in this part, Leslie Jordan is hilarous in everything he does. Marcia Cross was a serious badass when she told Chuck to get the hell out of the street and leave her & her friends alone. Gaby tried to cover for her hubby at his firm, but the truth comes about about his drinking and he is sent to rehab center! Renee has nothing to do except telling Lynette to have sex with a starnger and put herself out there for someone else, but she has a point. 7,0/10moreless
  • Awesome (as usual)!!!

    Can't believe that this show will soon be over forever. I'm gonna miss it so much! :(

    But for today's episode, it was epic! Gaby trying to handle Carlos's work was really awesome! Hilarious scenes there!

    Susan's scenes with the art gallery was AMAZING <33333333 I was waiting the hole episode just for those last few scenes! It was just incredible!

    I don't wanna give too much away, but the last few minutes of this episode were incredibel, and now I am impantiently awaiting the next episode! Can't wait!

    Keep it up, guys! This it very interesting and I can't wait for more!moreless
  • Suspicion Song


    Suspicion Song was a great episode of Desperate Housewives and I really enjoyed watching this episode because all of the housewives had to deal with their own issues along with the secret one they share. The story lines were well written and fun to watch. I thought it was touching how Carlos's client came to offer his help. Andre thrusting success onto Susan was full of humorous and fun scenes. Bree being interrogated by Chuck was the dose of reality setting in, and Gabby tries to help Carlos. Lynnette is up for change upon her and Tom's wedding anniversary but things aren't what they seem. It was all very entertaining. I look forward to watching the next episode!!!!!

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Goof: When Lynette tries to sneak into Tom's room with a bottle of his favorite Scotch, she is actually holding a bottle of Blanton's Single Barrel Kentucky Bourbon.

    • Music: The song "Liar, Liar", by Rachel Barror, was used in the original ABC promotional trailer for this episode.

    • Continuity Error: When awoken by the sound of someone breaking into her home, Bree dials 911 and tells the police she lives at 4355 Wisteria Lane. This is the Scavo residence and thus incorrect. She lives at 4354 Wisteria Lane.

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Chuck: (to the women, particularly Bree) I am this close to putting this together. But you know what? I think I'm gonna take my time. Because I wanna enjoy watching the "Ice Princess" melt.

    • Mary Alice: (ending narration) Yes, there comes a time when we must expose our weaknesses. When our secrets can no longer remain private. When our solitude can no longer be denied. When our pain can no longer be ignored. But sometimes we feel so alone, that a weakness we thought we'd overcome suddenly becomes too strong to fight.

    • Andre: There's the woman of the hour. How do you feel?
      Susan: I never wanted people to see these paintings. I feel... miserable.
      Andre: Then, congratulations. You're finally an artist.

    • Bree: (after seeing Susan's paintings) Susan, this isn't art! It's an illustrated confession!
      Gabrielle: It's like a kids' book! "Meet Dick and Jane! See Jane kill Dick! See Jane bury Dick! Run, Jane, run!"

    • Chuck: (talking about Alejandro) Something happened to this guy. Something bad and permanent. Now, I don't think you did it, but I think you know who did. Probably one of your friends. And you, being Bree, are protecting them.
      Bree: I do protect my friends. I would do anything for them, anything. They're the one thing in my life that have never failed me, and I will never fail them. And against that you are powerless. Now, I am tired of your little guesses and your games, so if you wanna charge me with something, I suggest you take out your cuffs. If not, you get the hell out of my street.

    • Renee: (sighs, after learning Lynette plans on getting back together with Tom) What are you gonna do?
      Lynette: Well... I got Penny's keys to his apartment, and...
      Renee: (interrupting) Oh, I get it. He gets home, you meet him at the door, wearing nothing but whipped cream and a smile.
      Lynette: No. (grabs a bottle) I'm gonna put a bottle of scotch on his nightstand, that is our anniversary thing, he sends me flowers, I give him
      Renee: Oh, now I get it. You get him all liquored up, and then you undress him...
      Lynette: (interrupting) No, Renee, no sex.
      Renee: Okay, I don't get it!

    • Carlos: Daytime TV sucks. Just a bunch of women sitting around, talking about menopause and things they don't eat anymore.
      Gabrielle: You did record that, right?
      Carlos: (rolls his eyes) Yes...

    • Andre: (to Susan, about Felix) He can be a touch theatrical, I wouldn't take his praise too seriously.
      Felix: (interrupting) Oh, I would. I think this time I may have landed on a little too thin. I have not been this excited since I discovered Andre doing caricatures at the pier.
      Andre: They weren't caricatures, they were images of the "American grotesque".
      Felix: (laughs) And if you bought two, you got a free churro. (to Susan) I am not surprised he didn't tell me about you. I'm sure he saw you in his rearview mirror gunning on it, and it scared him to death.
      Susan: (sarcastically) Why would a professional like Andre be threatened by... oh, what did you call me? A silly, bored housewife, unburdened by talent.
      Felix: You... are a housewife? (Susan nods affirmatively; he laughs) I love it! You're like a, a sexy suburban Georgia O'Keeffe. Without all the pesky vaginas...

    • Gabrielle: I know Frank Sweeney. He grabbed my ass at the Christmas party. Actually, a lot of guys did, that was a good party.
      Marilyn: Yes, it was. (grins)

    • Gabrielle: (to Bree) Never think you've lost me as a friend, 'cause... you're my rock.

    • Chuck: ...It's obvious to me what's going on here. Someone's sending you a message.
      Bree: What kind of message?
      Chuck: Maybe they think you're hiding something. Maybe they're trying to rattle you... hoping you'll slip up. Or maybe they just don't want you to feel safe in your own home.
