  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Kathryn Joosten (Mrs. McCluskey) played Mrs. Landingham, President Jeb Bartlett's first personal secretary on "The West Wing". That character was killed by a drunk driver. President Bartlett's next personal secretary was Debbie Fiderer, played by Lily Tomlin, who now plays Mrs. McCluskley's sister.

    • Goof: When Porter realized Tom had come to the warehouse, as he was looking out the door, he had put on his shirt. However in the next shot, with Anne in the foreground, we see Porter put on his shirt again.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • (Bree is talking to Katherine on the phone and is sorry to learn that she's already slept with Peter, an organ dealer...)
      Bree: I just wish you had taken things more slowly.
      Katherine: Bree, you have given me the most magical night I've had since I don't know when. You want to make me feel bad about it now?
      Bree: No, I'm not.
      Katherine: Oh, he's just so wonderful. I gotta tell you, if I'm not careful this guy could still my heart.
      Bree: Well, if he tries just promise you'll call.

    • Roberta: (to her sister, in the hospital) I drove 80 miles to see you, Karen, you better be dying or you're gonna pay for my gas.

    • Bree: (to Katherine) Well, that's what's so great about it, technically it's a business dinner. It has all the potential upsides of a date while still being tax deductible.

    • Susan: (To Jackson) So we break up and 15 minutes later you're with someone else... You got over me fast.
      Darcy: Surprised it took 15 minutes.

    • Jackson: We need to talk.
      Susan: Sorry, bad time. I have the mailman upstairs in my tub!

    • (Lynette opens the door for Lee. He's holding a bottle of scotch.)
      Lynette: Hey. What's that for?
      Lee: Well, I was gonna use it to wash down a bottle of sleeping pills the next time your husband's band defiled another rock classic, but since you got them a rehearsal space, I thought we could share it over ice.
      Lynette: (laughs) Come on in!

    • Bree: Peter's a felon? But he's so refined, so handsome.
      Orson: Two qualities that did not serve him well behind bars.

  • NOTES (2)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Episode Title: "There's Always a Woman" is a song from the Stephen Sondheim musical Anyone Can Whistle, which sadly ran just one brief week on Broadway in 1964.
