Episode Quotes
Susan: Why don't we talk about Edie?
Lynette: And say what?
Susan: I don't know, but she is the reason we're on this trip. Uh, maybe we could share memories or tell stories.
Lynette: Hmm. Why don't you start with the time she tried to steal your comatose boyfriend? That was fun.
Susan: Okay, I was thinking of stories that put Edie in a positive light.
Gabrielle: And after that fives minutes is up, then what do we do?

Mrs. McCluskey: We still gotta figure out where we're going to spread the ashes. Now, it's gonna be some place that was meaningful to Edie.
Gabrielle: Well, Edie once told me she lost her virginity in a cow pasture. If we can find that exact field --
Susan: -- we'd find a lot of traumatized cows.

Episode Goofs
