Tom is suffering from postpartum depression. Lynette is doing
everything she can to cheer him up. She makes his favorite meals, tells
her best jokes, even gets out her best lingerie - all to no avail. Tom
remains depressed. Finally, Lynette sends him to the Doctor. After a
20 minute consult, Tom returns home with a prescription for anti-anxiety
medication. Lynette thinks he should just tough it out, those pills
make her nervous. Tom says he can't go on like this, and he's going on
the pills. Lynette remembers a Doctor that Susan went to, who practices
holistic medicine. She says if Tom goes there and that Doctor says he
should be on those pills; fine. She will agree to whatever he recommends...
