Episode Quotes
Edie: I was just about to give a Maisy Gibbons update.
Lynette: Guys, we should be ashamed of ourselves for reveling in that woman's misery. That being said, Edie, please continue.

Edie: My necklace! Oh, you know, I lent this to Martha three months ago, and she said that it went down the drain. Oh, I miss how we used to steal things from one another!

Maisy: I've been abandoned. I guess that what happens when you become the town whore.
Bree: Oh sweety, they didn't abandon you because you're a whore. They abandoned you because you weren't that nice to begin with.

Susan: Every time we went out for pizza you could have said, "Oh, and by the way, I once killed a man." Or when you said, "Hey, let's go jogging," you could have said, "Wow, by the way, I once killed a man". Every time we went to the movies and the hero shot the bad guy you could have turned to me and said, "Oh, by the way, I did that once." You didn't!

Bree: Rex, if you walk out of this restaurant, I will scream.
Rex: Bree --
Bree: I will scream about your cruelty. Then I will scream about your infidelity. And just to make sure it really hurts, I will scream about your distasteful sexual habits. You want to know what true humiliation is, you just take one step.
