Bungled up about her ill-starred date, Lynette turns to her friends, Susan and Gabrielle for aid. Gabrielle tells Lynette that she should not be apprehensive about hitting the sack with this guy, if she really likes him. Lynette tells her that she’s gotten a little rusty, as it’s been a while since she’s had sex. Susan tells her to calm down, as she is putting too much stress on herself. Just then they see Bree walking out with a new man, which they count to be the fifth for the week.
