Goofs

Edie Britt and Susan Meyer are sitting in the bar trying to scope out the "victim." Edie pours herself a glass of beer and it's filled to the top and she takes a tiny sip. In the next shot, the glass is more than halfway empty. And in the shot after that, the glass is filled back up near the top. See more »

Quotes

Ed Ferrara: At least you and Tom have a love life.
Lynette: Well, we do the best we can. Given the circumstances.
Ed Ferrara: Better than Fran and I. We're dead in that apartment. Ah, I don't wanna bore you with the details.
Lynette: I appreciate that. You know, Ed. I don't want to pry into your personal business, but if you are having problems in that area, you don't have to be resigned to it.
Ed Ferrara: What are you suggesting, hookers? No, Ed Ferrara doesn't pay for sex.
