Episode Quotes
Bree: Well, I know that good help is hard to find but stealing a family's nanny is so unseemly!
Lynette: I'm not twisting anyone's arm. If I make a better offer, than why shouldn't a qualified person weave the benefits. So come on, where can I score some high-grade nanny?

Susan: Helen, Helen, you're here! Did they tell you about the change in lineup? I'm going to go last if that's okay.
Helen: (thinking Susan slept with John) There's a special place in hell for people like you.
Susan: I'm sorry, it wasn't my decision.

Gabrielle: Edie, what did you do to that dress?
Edie: Well, I made it audience friendly. Can you tell I'm not wearing any underwear?
Gabrielle: Yes!
Edie: Good.

Bree: Well, that's because you just don't love him as much as I do!
Rex: Well, isn't that nice.
Bree: It's just a fact. I'm his mother. He lived inside of me.
Rex: He hung out in your womb for a few months back in the 80s. Since then, I have grown to love him just as much as you!
