  • Quotes

    • Mary Alice: (closing voiceover) There are certain kinds of pain that can't be treated in a hospital, so those who are suffering do what they can to heal themselves. Some cure the ache of loneliness by making new friends. Some soothe their excruciating guilt with an infusion of cash. Some alleviate their burning desire with small acts of kindness. But sadly, there will always be thos who can't begin to heal... because they realize there is more pain yet to come.

    • Andrew: Why does this keep happening?
      Bree: I don't know. I mean, maybe God's punishing us.
      Andrew: Or, God is punishing the Solises, and we're just doing God's work.

    • Karen: So, where's that Chippendales dancer you hired to fix your house?
      Bree: If you mean my contractor his name is Keith, and I had to let him go.
      Karen: Why? You catch him, uh, grating cheese on his abs?
      Bree: It just wasn't working out.
      Karen: It must have been pretty bad for you to kick that shirtless wonder out of your front yard. I was finally reaching my target heart rate on my walk.

    • Gabrielle: What the hell is wrong with you people? First you take out my mother-in-law, then you go after my daughter. Are you trying to kill off every Juanita Solis on the planet?
      Bree: I'll admit, it was a terrible coincidence.
      Gabrielle: You're getting sloppy, you know. This one was in broad daylight.
      Bree: I'm sorry. She just came out of nowhere.
      Gabrielle: Have you seen my daughter? She never comes out of nowhere.

    • Due to fellow castmember Joshua Logan Moore's (Parker Scavo) absence and resulting lack of billing in this episode, Darcy Rose Byrnes' (Penny Scavo) billing moves to a slot underneath that of Mason Vale Cotton's (MJ Delfino). This marks the first time in the series that a regular's billing switches order during a season whilst still being credited under the same billing category (in this case, "also starring").

    • Joshua Logan Moore (Parker Scavo) is absent from this episode, and is therefore not credited.

    • Tuc Watkins (Bob Hunter) is credited as a series regular, under the "starring" billing, for the first time. This marks the first time in a season that a "starring" castmember has been billed only from the second episode onwards.

  • Allusions

    • Episode Title: The title of this episode comes from a song of the same name in the Stephen Sondheim musical, A Little Night Music.
